Pizza is one of the most popular dishes in the world. It goes great with everything, whether it be a family dinner that is quick and easy or on one of those days where you just can’t seem to get caught up at work, only to come home and have your kids say “what’s for dinner, I’m hungry!”.
It’s great for “movie night” when everyone settles down for that great “flick”. It’s even great after the game, win or lose it doesn’t matter, all that matters is that the whole team is there, laughing, eating and having a great time.
While there are definitely advantages to calling for a pizza to be delivered, or going out to a restaurant, what about making it yourself at home?
One of the first advantages of making your own homemade pizza is getting the whole family together, in the kitchen to help. Dividing up the different pizza making tasks among family members is a great way to slow down everyone’s busy day and connect.
Find out what’s going on it your kids’ life as you cringe at the mess that’s slowly growing and threatening to take over the whole kitchen.
Who cares about the mess? Let the little ones roll out the homemade dough. Get everyone to get their “Pizza On”. Laugh together, talk together, share together. It’s not only pizza time it’s family time.
When it’s done you can all sit around and dig into the fruits of your labor and carry on the conversation and the sharing.
Another advantage is, saving money. True, the fresh ingredients will cost a bit more, but if you look you can probably find better deals. One thing is for sure when all is said and done you will still save money when you consider a large supreme pizza will probably run about $25.
One of the main advantages to making your own pizza instead of ordering it is that you can control the ingredients you include. Fast food pizza places don’t add the freshest ingredients they can find. If they did, that pizza would probably sell for $50 for a large supreme rather than $25.
It’s true chain pizza joints buy the cheapest ingredients they can find in bulk and toss on as little as they can then call it good. If you make your own pizza you can add only the freshest ingredients and as much as you want of whatever you want. There are no rules here, it’s family pizza night.
There are several reasons why you should make your own pizza instead of order it from a fast food pizza place. However, the hands down, most important reason to make your own pizza is it can bring your family closer together.
Sure, you can save money. Yes, you can add the freshest, healthiest ingredients. These are all excellent reasons to make your own homemade pizza, but honestly the time together as a family makes all the difference in the world.
