My Mama's Weeknight Pizza
My Mother makes this pizza at least once a week. My Dad loves it…and so do the my kids when they are visiting. My Mother is not one to measure anything so this is a “to taste” recipe. Play with it until you love it! Dad likes his pepperoni...but at our house anything goes when it comes to pizza!
