Easy Pizza Plus Herbs

Cooking dinner can feel like such a chore after a tough day.  Sometimes I want to just do something quick and easy, (but still tasty). 

Here's my family's favorite pizza recipe.  It's so simple, it's my favorite pizza recipe, too! 


Here's what I do: 

1 Boxed Pizza - Today I used good ol' Chef Boy Ar Dee
A few stems of Basil and/or Oregano
Pizza Toppings - This time I used black olives and ham
About 1 Cup Grated Cheese
Cavender's Greek Seasoning

Prepare crust according to the package directions.  Smoosh into the pan.   


Add sauce. 


Here's where things get a little more fun.  Grab a couple stems of basil.  Oregano would be yummy, too.  Today I have Genovese Basil and Globe Basil.  


You probably recognise the Genovese Basil with its large leaves.  Something nice about the Globe Basil is you don't need to chop it!  So, snip the leaves as small as you like them, or just toss them onto the pizza. 


(Quick tip:  Leave a couple of leaves at the top of the Basil stem.  We'll talk about why in a seperate post.) 


I add the tiny packet of parmesan cheese at this point and add our family's favorite pizza toppings.


Next add about a cup of grated mozzerella or more parmesan.  Sprinkle with Cavender's Greek Seasoning or whatever you have that is similar to spaghetti seasoning.


Bake according to package directions. 


A super quick, super easy and super tasty recipe!  My family loves the flavor and I love the minimal work after a tough day!
