"I combined our daughter's two favorite foods—pizza and grilled cheeseburgers—to create this main dish," says Tanya Gutierro from Beacon Falls, Connecticut. "It's very simple to make, and she and her friends love it. If you don't like the toppings, replace them with whatever you prefer."

Give this pizza a try, and you'll see how easily convenience foods can transform your kitchen into an aromatic pizzeria. Marinated artichoke hearts help gives that rich entree a flavorful twist, breaking up ordinary weeknight fare. And if time's tight, save a few minutes by using a package of cooked and cubed chicken.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
My family loves pizza, but we rarely have it delivered since I created this fresh and flavorful version. Always a winner in my house, it is a fast and delicious meal that even my young son looks forward to. --Kate Selner of Lino Lakes, Minnesota.
A boxed crust mix and cooked chicken make this flavorful pizza a cinch to prepare. "It bakes up fast and is a wonderful way to please pizza lovers," says Autumn Ruhl of Montgomery, Michigan. TIP: "We like a dark molasses-based barbecue sauce and sometimes use refrigerated dough instead of the boxed mix," Autumn adds.
I always keep meatballs and pizza crusts in the freezer to make this specialty at the spur of the moment. Add a tossed salad, and you have a delicious dinner. —Mary Humeniuk-Smith, Perry Hall, Maryland
This pizza has a hearty bread-like crust and toppings to resemble a Parcheesi game board. In each corner, there is a large slice of salami to mimic the game's starting circles. Strips of onions and red pepper form the paths around the board...and sliced olives serve as the pawns.—Leslie Dumm, Clevemand Heights, Ohio
Eating pizza is fun, but making it with your favorite ingredients is even better—especially when you can do it in 30 minutes or less! Just ask Amanda Hoffman of Worthington, Minnesota. "One weekend, when I was home from college, I made this for my family and they absolutely loved it. It's equally good with chicken instead of bacon."
"A relative brought this vegetarian pizza to a family gathering, and everyone enjoyed it," says Kim Balvance from Shakopee, Minnesota. "It's great right out of the oven, but I think leftovers are even better reheated the next day."
My sister-in-law used to own a pizza restaurant and gave me this awesome recipe that features ground beef, cheddar and thousand island dressing. We like it on whole-wheat crust. — Katie Buckley, Wyoming, Delaware
