On Friday, the week is done and you come home and just want to relax.  You want a meal that will not be fussy.  You want it to be filling, easy, and tasty!  Hubby and I are not health nuts- yet.  We are getting that way.  We have cut out basically all of our processed food.  YEA!!!  Cannot tell you what that has done to our energy levels and our waistlines!  We love pizza!  However, it has to be fresh and homemade.  I usually make our own pizza crust and double the recipe and freeze it.  But this time, we ran out and had to make do!  It all worked out!

So pizza…daisy style!

Always have a couple of these around in case I run out of the homemade pizza crust!  It is an okay substitute!
