make your own pizza

When you have a few friends over for a meal and everyone likes something different, ‘make your own pizza’ is a great solution for the menu. After all, who doesn’t love pizza? In our family alone we have a gluten free vegan, a plain Jane, a carnivore and a I love everything person and surprisingly, everyone is happy with pizza. Here’s the spread we put out for our family MYO pizza night.
