Family Night with Pizza and @Pillsbury! #PBFamilyNight

I promise you, our pizza was GOOD!

I mean, like really good. It rivaled the local pizza places and I do mean that.

On Sunday the kids and I had Family Night with Pillsbury, you know that bake-a-licious company with the fat Dough Man that giggles and bakes delicious ooey-gooey cookies? Yes, well we didn’t bake up any cookies, we actually made pizza the Pillsbury way. And I did say Pillsbury Pizza. And yes it was absolutely the best. Put it like this, I promise you, I won’t be tweeting that I ordered out and bought pizza because I will be baking my own from now on! Let me show you what we did.

PBPizzaCrustSo Pillsbury has this delicious, soft and easily bake-able pizza crust. We tried the Thin Crust and next will try the Artisan Pizza Crust, which is more hearty with whole grain flavors. They sent us some cool baking tools: a Pillsbury apron, oven mitt, pizza cutter, cutting board and coupons to buy the refrigerated pizza dough.

After this initial pizza, I made a second one for myself and my husband with Asiago and other cheeses to kick it up a notch. Feel free to add any toppings that you love.

We then had to put the dough into the oven at 400 degrees for 5 minutes for it to rise just a bit before adding toppings. This is how it looked when we took it out of the oven.

Jo-Jo and Milan started to add the sauce


Then all the kids chimed in to assemble the pizza!

And Voila! Pizza Perfection!

But here’s the crew who made it!

I enjoyed the soft crust and it baked up fast — a little over 10 minutes. I think the kids did a great job making this on their first try. The pizza was great but the time together talking and laughing is what made this Pizza Night priceless.

You can try making breakfast pizza with fruits and cream cheeses or be as creative as your heart desires. Or find some inspiration on the Pillsbury page at
