Instant Pizzaz!


I was never a fan of frozen pizza until my husband showed me his latest creation. He calls it his instant pizzaz! Basically, he takes the most basic frozen pizza (cheese), and then tops it off with fresh ingredients so that it doesn't taste like frozen pizza anymore. I find it ingenious. Finally some good comes out of his laziness! =P

This recipe is very versatile and the possibilities are endless. All you need to start with is a plain cheese pizza and toppings of your choice. For the cheese pizza, we like the Kirkland ones from Costco. For toppings, it can be whatever your heart desires. You can do so many things--pineapple with ham, tomato with basil, barbecue chicken, deviled eggs with mayo, or any other crazy ideas. To demonstrate this recipe, I used sausages, mushrooms, and garlic cloves. Those were readily available ingredients I had in my fridge.

There are several things to keep in mind when making this pizza. First, make sure to add 7-8 minutes more than the recommended bake time because of the extra toppings. Another thing to keep in mind is that raw meat should be slightly grilled or cooked before adding to the pizza. Lastly, make sure the dry ingredients like mushrooms and garlic are drizzled with olive oil so that they wouldn't dry during baking.

How To Make An Instant Pizzaz!

Ingredients at a glance - frozen cheese pizza, garlic, sausage, bella mushrooms, and olive oil.


The first step is to prepare the toppings. Slice the sausage and mushrooms. Peel the garlic. Drizzle the mushrooms and garlic with olive oil.


Put the prepared toppings on the frozen pizza. 


Place the pizza in the preheated oven and bake for about 20 minutes. Bake time and temperature varies with the kind of pizzas used. It's generally about 7-8 minutes more than the instructed cook time. 


After 20 minutes, a quick and easy homemade pizza is done! I can't wait to experiment with different ingredients next time. Sorry pizza joints, looks like I won't be visiting you guys for awhile!
