Can we talk about how much I freaking love pizza?

Seriously, pizza cannot do wrong in my eyes.

I love making it with red sauce or even just a simple olive oil sauce.

Sometimes it’s a deep dish and sometimes I spread it super thin to create a nice thin bottom with just enough chewy crust.

Of course, sometimes we are lazy and just order pizza too #truth.

However, if you fear homemade pizza you need to stop all the worrying right away.

Nowadays it’s beyond easy to find fresh dough at the store so just get your dough, spread it out, top it with deliciousness and give it a bake.

Seriously, it takes just about 30 minutes from start to finish to make your own pizza.

Then after your pizza is ready you can fill up your plate and watch endless hours of whatever show you are currently obsessing over on Netflix.

Which if you are me it would be – Bones, Iron Chef America, and Good Eats. I have been watching HOURS of these shows every single day.

Don’t worry – I’m not just some fat sloth sitting around watching tv all day. I usually keep the tv going in the kitchen while I’m bopping around coming up with recipes for this blog.

So really it’s like multitasking watching. See? Now it’s not so bad.

You wanna know what’s in this beautiful pizza?

Instead of a traditional sauce, I decided to use Musselman’s apple butter.

Yep, apple butter. It brings in nice sweet flavor since the pie is topped with strong blue cheese and salty pancetta.

The arugula on top brings in a nice fresh element with a pop of peppery flavor.

This apple butter blue cheese pancetta pizza is the perfect addition to your weeknight menu. It's sweet, savory and oh so delicious. Plus it's ready in only 30 minutes!

So remember – when you’re freaking out about what to make for dinner don’t rule out homemade pizza.
