Recipe by Cynna

This is a really simple pizza recipe, so much better than store-bought or even delivery. I love to make this pizza for our Saturday night movie! I use my recipe for Italian Turkey Sausage for a topper on this recipe. Cook time includes time to rise. good!

i used frozen pizza dough and a can of chopped tomatoes. My whole family loved this pizza and cleared their plates (children 8 and 5) and that doesn't always happen. I highly recommend.
