Pizza Tips

These tips from our readers make pizza night fun and easy!

"When using a pizza stone, be sure to preheat the stone, then sprinkle a little cornmeal on it. This prevents the pizza from sticking."
—Brian Butler of Oglesby, Illinois

"I find pizza is a handy way to use up leftovers as toppings. That last bit of spaghetti sauce is great spread on a crust or tortilla, especially if it has meat and mushrooms on it!"
—Mary Price of Youngstown, Ohio

"I make homemade crust, and when I do, I make additional small pizzas. I've found that they freeze and travel well to any child's college freezer."
—June Brinkman of Brock, Nebraska

"My husband and I love making pizzas with fresh vegetables, like squash and peppers, right from the garden. But we love making pizza year-round, so we freeze a lot of vegetables so we can have our summery pizza during the winter."
—Anne Cooke of Raleigh, North Carolina

"To make a delicious herbed pizza crust, I add 1 teaspoon basil and 1 teaspoon oregano to a boxed pizza crust mix. It's an excellent way to give a little zip to 'homemade' pizza."
—Michelle Durfee of Gregory, Michigan
