Pizza! Pizza! Pizza! I love pizza, shown in photo, so I made my own version this evening.

I call it FLAT OUT AMAZING PIZZA! How's that for hype? Heh-heh. Sorry about that over-the-top stuff. But I would call this, at least for me, Better Than Average Pizza.

The Flat Out part comes from the pizza crust base. I used one flatbread, Light Italian Herb by the Flatout company in Saline, Michigan. This one is made from 100% Stone Ground Whole Wheat.

The Amazing part comes from what I put on this pizza. I doubt if many would choose my ingredients, so feel free to make your own version. Just be sure to put it through the Recipe Builder on eTools to see if the PPV has changed (it probably will).

Atop the flatbread, which I put on a sheet of foil on a baking pan, I added, in order:

Strips of a slice of mozzarella cheese,

Thin slices of vine tomato,

Spread the pizza sauce over the foregoing two ingredients, then,

Thin slices of artichoke hearts,

Thin slices of oyster, and, finally,

a few twists of McCormick Italian Herbs Grinder.

I put the pizza in a 425F oven for just 9 minutes.

Usually I don't eat a whole pizza, but this one was small and I was HUNGRY. Yes, even I, the Generally Satisfied One succumbed to the pangs of an appetite!

I enjoyed the pizza with some fruit, Guatemalan Cantaloupe and big, juicy, fresh red strawberries by Driscoll.

To drink I had a simple glass of soymilk.

Oh boy, all of that was real good and I am once again restored to my Satisfied Self.

How do you like pizza?

How often do you have it?

Do you ever make your own pizza?

How do you make it?

P.S. Sometime I'd like to know how many questions I get to ask here, heh-heh. If anyone wants to see what the pizza looks like as it comes out of the oven, I have another photo of it on my Profile page under Recipes. Click on the FLAT OUT AMAZING PIZZA! recipe and your wildest dreams will come true. No, that won't happen, but the picture is there. Enjoy!

    I use flat-outs and use a good sauce with turkey pepperoni, mushrooms, and low-fat cheese.

    I make my own crust in a bread machine so I can control the ingredients and the size of the pizza. I use pizza sauce from a deli here, a little low fat cheese, a few Canadian bacon slices and tons of pineapple and tomatoes. Sometimes I will do turkey pepperoni instead, I have small children and there is no way they would fall for veggies on a pizza.

    We are veggie pizza fans, use artichoke hearts & jalapenos for the kick but favorite is the standard Margarita on a thin homemade whole wheat crust.

    I like either just cheese pizza, cheese and pepperoni or I like BBQ (chicken, BBQ Sauce, Pineapple, and canadian bacon)! I rarely make my own pizza, hardly ever.

    My BFF calls her version BBQ Pizza - we started with a flour tortilla - just a touch of olive oil brushed on it and some seasoning - ww shredded light cheese and I did spinach, grilled red peppers, art-hearts - yum!! BBQ was hot - about 10 min and it was done! And canadian bacon is very low in PP+ chop it up and sprinkle just a little on top.

    I love a grilled pizza. In the summer I like to make the crust out on the grill, top and grill again slightly to melt the mozarella cheese. I've made flour tortilla pizzas that are delish! Try your flat out bread with taco toppings sometime...taco meat, mont. jack cheese

    There are so many ways to prepare pizza and making it you own. The other night my DH was just getting home when I pulled our pizza out of the oven. It was so yummy and filling and most of all PP friendly. Thank you for sharing your ideas as well, Darryl. (:

    Hubby makes mini pizzas on old sandwich rolls that we haven't eaten. Feta cheese, canadian bacon, mushrooms and olives and I'm a happy camper. This looks really good!

    I love pizza eat it about once every 4 or 5 months......Have my favorite place that will sell it once piece at a time, 16 points a slice, worth it and use my WP for it.

    I love using roasted garlic instead of tomato sauce and then adding tomato slices on the pizza! :)

    You have a great idea - I have been photographing my food for a week now and it makes me want to do better. Thanks for the motivation!

    Yummy! I think I may head to the grocery store to get ingredients and make one this weekend. Thanks for being a good and healthy food inspiration.

    I love pizza made right. I do make my own, crust and all. My pizza crust is a yummy pre-fermented dough (whole wheat - Organic Montana red that I grind myself). The flavor is amazing. And of course super thin made on a pizza stone in high heat. Love homemade sauce, garlic, onions and a sprinkling of parmesan cheese. Sometimes roasted red peppers or sun dried tomatoes...I think I'll make pizza tomorrow.

    sounds good, I might have to try it some time, I might skip the oysters but you never know?

    I have made my own pizza, but never with FlatOuts. I look forward to trying it. I have looked for them everywhere here and only recently was able to find them in a local store. Glad you enjoyed it!

    I like to use a pita...I split it in half and then use tomato sauce with some italian herbs. Then add 1/4 cup of shredded mozz cheese for both halves and also 1 Tbsp of a sharp cheese like gorgonzola or blue or even parm on both halves. I like to add turkey pepperoni and then lots of veggies! Makes me hungry for pizza! I think my next meal will be my pizza recipe but your bacon and blue cheese salad! Sounds so good!
