Recipe for “Magic” Pizza

Home Care in Trussville AL

Everyone loves pizza, but few family caregivers have time in their senior care journeys with their loved ones to make a pizza from scratch, and you do not always want to resort to the local pizza Home-Care-in-Trussville-ALplace to make your dinner for your loved ones. Simply because you do not have the extra time to make pizza dough from scratch, allow it to proof, make homemade pizza sauce, and then bring it all together does not mean that you cannot put your love into making a meal for your elderly loved ones and even the rest of your family.

This recipe is one that you will think of as one of your favorite “secrets” and will dramatically cut down on the amount of time, energy, effort, and expense that you have to put into making a pizza at the end of a long day. Rather than having to form a dough, allow it to rise, shape it, and then layer it with your sauce and toppings, you simply put together the ingredients for the dough, put it in a pan, and add your sauce, cheese, and toppings right on top. As it bakes, the crust will form so you can slice it up and enjoy just like your favorite pizza.
