Why Make Pizza at Home? Answered in Pictures.

Gentle Readers, with the surplus of pizza options—frozen, delivery, school lunch, take-and-bake—one may wonder “why bother making it at home?” Well, I tried cheating a little bit last week, buying refrigerator case pizza dough. The next night, we were invited to a pizza-making playdate with homemade dough. Wow, what a difference.

So thank you to CookingTeacher for the invite and the lesson!

Why Make Pizza at Home

1. It’s more delicious. No need for a picture here, I can tell you that the homemade dough rocked out.

3. Playdough can’t be eaten.

Press the pizza dough in the middle, pull out toward the sides.

5. Topping choices are empowering.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the other forms of pizza too, but it’s worth it to take time, slow down, and get your hands dirty.
