National Pizza Day November 15th

Monday, November 17, 2014

Today we are celebrating a National Food Holiday two days late. Saturday was National Cheese Pizza Day and yes, I do believe pizza deserves a national holiday.  It's one of my favorite foods.  My family and I love to make homemade pizza.  For as long as I can remember, Saturday has been pizza night in our house... 

Did you know that Americans eat 350 slices of pizza per second?  AND the average American consumes about 46 slices every year.  That's a lot of pizza!  Pizza is so popular that pizzerias now represent about 17 percent of all restaurants in the United States.  

Making your own pizza at home is so much easier than you think.  If you're not sure of making homemade dough, you can purchase frozen pizza dough from the grocery store or buy a loaf of pizza dough from your favorite pizzeria.  I do this all the time.  

Here are a few delicious pizza recipes I found from a few of my blogging friends.  Have some fun some pizza dough and make pizza for dinner for your family!  

Here is my recipe for homemade pizza dough...

Another recipe I make is this QUICK Bubble Pizza that 
uses canned biscuits...
