Quick Personal Pizza

This is more a guideline than a recipe, but it’s what I use when the family is hankering for homemade pizza but nothing but a few pantry and fridge staples to make it happen. Try to use the best and freshest quality ingredients you have available, and dare to try intriguing combinations (I like fresh tomato sauce, minced garlic, cremini, shiitake, and button mushrooms, caramelized onions, and thyme).
