Every Saturday night at our house is "Pizza Night". Let's face it, kids love pizza, and moms love an easy-to-make dinner. Since ordering pizza take out is not an option for us, I've come up with the next best plan.

To make pizza at our house I use one of my favorite gluten free staples: The Gluten Free Pantry's Favorite Sandwich Bread Mix. First I have the bread maker make up the dough (my bread maker has a "pizza dough" setting that takes 50 minutes). I use one box of mix to make 5 personal size pizzas (about 8-9 inches round).

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

I prepare the pans by spraying them with oil and dusting them with corn meal (optional). I use Bob's Red Mill gluten free Corn Meal. Divide the dough evenly among the 5 pans.

The tricky part its rolling out the sticky dough. I spray both the roller and the dough with oil. Don't be afraid to use plenty of oil. Once you get a bit of dough sticking to the roller you will need to wash the roller and start over as it will just stick more and more. So, it is better to use plenty of oil.

Once you have the dough all rolled out you have two options:

Option 1: Get out your favorite toppings, put them on your prepared dough, bake for 15 minutes and enjoy!

Option 2: Bake the crust alone for 10 minutes. Put cooled crusts in a zip lock bag in the freezer. Any time you want a quick pizza you can pull a crust out of the freezer, top and bake. I like to keep a few of these on hand in the freezer for when I need a quick easy meal for the kids.

Like I said, kids love pizza!
