Variations

Swap out the fillings to your favorites or build a Create-Your-Own pizza bar and let everyone have fun!

  • Mozzarella is the go-to for pizza because of its creamy, mild flavor and its ability to hold everything together, but don’t be shy about trying different kinds of cheese. Muenster is a great choice!
  • Of course, bacon crumbles make everything even better, but how about a dollop of jalapeno popper dip, too?
  • Add your favorite cooked meats and veggies including bell peppers, onions and black olives!
