Three Meat Pizza with Herbed Crust


Three Meat Pizza with Herbed Crust (whole)- What's for Dinner Moms

There are nights I hate making dinner.  I don’t want to do it and I delay it as long as possible because I don’t even want to think about it.  I am even slowly teaching my kids to cook with the hope that they can take over a couple nights a week.  Tonight they both helped plan and prepare the meal.

I am falling in love with my breadmaker all over again.  My kids love pizza and I am trying to figure out different varieties and crusts to keep it interesting.   I planned an Italian herbed crust to complement the meats of the pizza.

Verdict:

The kids loved this meal and were already claiming the leftovers for the next day before the meal was over.  In our house that is a hit it out of the park success!

I served this with a green salad.
