Pizza: Bringing Generations Together for Dinner

When I was growing up, my family used to have “Boboli® Pizza Night” where my dad would bring home a Boboli® pizza crust from the store and we made a custom pizza. It was one of my favorite dinners of the week, and I always loved being able to help create the ‘pizza art’ for that night.

This recipe is highly customizable, and can even meet the pickiest of grandkids’ delight. You can let the grandkids help you cook dinner, and create fun memories in the process.


Serves 2-4

1 14oz Boboli® Pizza Crust (or the Mini Boboli® Pizza Crusts may be substituted)

1 small can of tomato sauce

4oz shredded mozzarella cheese

1 package pepperoni



  1. Remove packaging from pizza crust and place on a cookie sheet or pizza stone. Pre-heat oven according to directions on back of pizza crust package.

  3. Place tomato sauce into a small saucepan and warm over low heat for about 5 minutes.

  5. Assemble pizza! Spread a medium layer of sauce onto pizza crust. Follow with ¾ of the shredded cheese. Add a layer of pepperoni, arranging the slices in a single or double layer. Top with remaining cheese.

  7. Carefully put pizza into oven, and cook according to package directions, approximately 15-20 minutes. The pizza will be done when the crust is slightly browned, and the cheese is melted and bubbling, but not burnt.


Serve with your favorite glass of Italian wine and for the grandkids, Martinelli’s Gold Medal® cider.


Note: This can be adapted to have many toppings. Some other favorites include:

Three Cheese: blend a mixture of three or more of your favorite cheeses.

Hawaiian: instead of pepperoni, add ham and pineapple.

Veggie: add any of your favorite veggies- tomatoes, mushrooms and peppers work well.

Pesto: Instead of tomato sauce, spread a layer of pesto on the crust before adding cheese.

Enjoy cooking up all of your favorite pizzas with your family! As they say in Italiano, Buon Appetito!
