Gourmet Italian Stove Top Pizza

Stove Top Pizza

This is a great Friday night recipe and one the kids can learn to cook for themselves.

For those of you who are already ‘raving fans’ of the Saute Pan, you will have cooked the Pizza many times already.  For those of you who are new to the Saute Pan, you will fall in love with how easy it is to make your very own homemade pizzas, base and all.  We will be sharing lots of different Stove Top Pizza topping ideas here on Saute Pan Recipes, along with some variations on the base.  This recipe is for a thin base.
