We're just tired of delivery or store-bought, I guess, she shrugged. So we make our own.
Well, sure. That's understandable. Spreading some sauce and cheese on some pre-made dough isn't really all that difficult, it's something even my limited cooking skills can handle.
But, wait... you don't make the crust yourself too, do you?
Sure enough, she does.
I bow down to you, efficient, productive, inspiring mother. (I also want to know where in the world you find the time?)

There were so many of Pillsbury's Artisan Pizza Recipes that sounded tasty to me that, upon the arrival of an Artisan Fresh Ingredients Prize Pack, I wasn't sure which one my family would try first!
After finding a package of Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust in the refrigerated section of our local grocery store, the kids and I got started following Pillsbury's recipe for Chicken Pesto Pizza... without the chicken for the vegetarians in the household.
Chicken(less) Pesto Pizza
1 can (13.8 oz) Pillsbury refrigerated artisan pizza crust with whole grain
½ cup refrigerated basil pesto (from 7-oz container)
2 cups shredded reduced-fat mozzarella cheese or Italian cheese blend (8 oz)
1 cup shredded cooked chicken breast
2 large plum (Roma) tomatoes, thinly sliced
Fresh basil leaves, if desired
Heat oven to 400°F for dark or nonstick pan (425°F for all other pans). Spray 15x10" pan with sides with cooking spray.
Unroll dough in pan; starting at center, press dough into 15x10" rectangle. Bake about 8 minutes or until light brown.
Spread pesto to within ½ inch of edges of crust. Top with 1½ cups of the cheese, the chicken and tomatoes; sprinkle with remaining ½ cup cheese.
Bake 5 minutes longer or until edges of crust are golden brown and cheese is melted. Sprinkle with basil. To serve, cut into 6 rows by 3 rows.
This was so incredibly easy and the results were so incredibly tasty! I love the way that each of the topping ingredients work well with each other, while the soft and chewy crust pulled it all together!
After the positive reaction that this dish received from the whole family, I have no doubt that we'll be having this again - not to mention that slicing it into small rectangles made me think that it would be a great appetizer or dish for a future gathering or party. Yum!
