There is something so wonderful about a regular pizza night, isn’t there? But all those cardboard take-out containers are a waste – not to mention the fuel and energy used in delivery (or pickup). Plus, who knows where the ingredients in that take-out pizza came from! Over the past couple of years we have been learning to make our own pizzas, which – yes – means that we eat them less often and also – yes – means that they aren’t quite restaurant-quality. It also means they’re waste-free because we can (and do!) get our flour, produce, etc. in bulk and skip that pesky box, and that they’re healthier than any version we could buy since we’re making every part from the crust to the sauce to the toppings ourselves, so we can control the ingredients. I probably don’t need to tell you at this point that it’s also much cheaper than a regular pizza order – but it is. Making the pizza from scratch has become an integral part of pizza night ’round these parts, and I wouldn’t have it any other way! (Bonus: you can cut the pieces into weird shapes, like squares.)
