Quick and Easy Pizza Recipes for Family Pizza Night!
One of our favorite family traditions is our monthly Friday Night Pizza and Movie Night. The first Friday of each month I make a homemade pizza and we watch a movie together as a family. We started this traditions years ago and our kids STILL love it! Now that I have a teenager, I rejoice at every minute she wants to spend time with me! I usually make the pizza, but some nights I just don’t have the time or energy to make, so I have found a few alternative easy pizza recipes.
Here are two of our favorite easy, simple pizza ideas for your next pizza night. The kids love helping me make these easy pizza night ideas.
French Bread Pizza
One easy pizza night idea is French Bread Pizza! This is a super quick and simple pizza alternative.
First, you need to slice a loaf of french bread in half.
Place both slices on a baking sheet and cook in 350 degree oven for about 5 minutes. You do not want the bread to get golden, you just want to harden it up a bit (it tastes much better this way, promise!).
After a few minutes in the oven take out the french bread and it’s now time to put all of your toppings on.
Last, bake your french bread pizza in the oven for about 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Slice and serve!
Pizza on Rolls
Pizza rolls are a really fun hands on way to get kids cooking.
You can make these easy mini pizzas using Pillsbury Biscuits or Rhodes Freezer Rolls. This time I used Rhodes frozen rolls.
Take the Rhodes Freezer Rolls out of the freezer three hours before you will need to eat. Place them on a baking sheet to thaw.
Once they are all thawed and had a little time to rise you are ready to make your pizzas!
Gently smoosh, flatten and pull the rolls to form flat pizza circles. This is the step your kids will really want to help with.
Place your pizza dough circles on a greased pan. Add your toppings, let everyone top their own individual pizza just the way they want it. Encourage your kids to be creative!
Bake in 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is slightly browned.
They are all ready to eat! Enjoy your own little personal pizza!
I hope these gives you a few more ideas for a fun Family Pizza Night in your home!
