Homemade Pizza Game Day Pull Apart Pizza

Who doesn’t love pizza? I love this recipe because it assembles quickly and bakes up in short order. My family loves the way the pieces pull apart into perfect serving sizes!

In fact, I usually have to make multiple casserole pans full of this pizza to satisfy my crowd.

You know, in Ohio, we take football seriously. Almost as seriously as they do in Texas. (don’t tell the Texans!)

When the favorite Ohio team is playing, there are few cars on the streets, nobody in the stores, and nearly everybody is in front of the TV or the Radio listening to the game.  Even my mother is concerned about who wins on Saturday.

(True confession: I’m not a football fan and I’ve discovered that game time is a great time to go grocery shopping… if I’m not invited to a tail gate party, that is!)

I love football food!!

Simple Lasagna – Only 6 Ingredients

With only 6 ingredients, this is the simplest lasagna you’ll ever make!

And, this is a no boil the noodles recipe. Save yourself that hot job.

homemade italian lasagna

Lasagna is one of my husband’s favorite meals. I love it too, but let’s face it, making lasagna can be a lot of work. The prep time is usually lengthy and the baking, yeah, longer yet.

I make lasagna infrequently because of those problems. (lots of work and long times) Maybe that’s why my husband always asks for it whenever I seek his input on the week’s menu.

This recipe, however, is going to change things!
