Easy Family Pizza Bar

This Easy Family Pizza Bar is a Dinner WIN!

Need an easy way to get your kids involved in the cooking process? Or, maybe you need a special meal to celebrate an accomplishment or a birthday? This Family Pizza Bar is the answer.

My kids love assembling their own pizza creations. I always encourage them to try new things, and I never have to beg them to finish their meals - which is a double-win in my book! If you have a large family with people coming and going from different evening activities, you can set out the pizza bar toppings and let everyone make their pizzas when they are able to eat dinner.

We always have the option of crusts – roll your own dough (available at Harris Teeter in the Deli), English muffins, and premade cauliflower crusts. Harris Teeter Pizza Sauce, chopped veggies, pepperoni, bacon, and shredded cheeses round out the bar.

Leftover toppings can get put into salads or eggs the next day, so nothing goes to waste.


Assorted crust option can include:

  • 1 lb. balls of Harris Teeter Pizza dough - divided into individual portions for easy rolling
  • Pre-made pizza crusts
  • Frozen cauliflower pizza crusts
  • English muffins - halved

Assorted topping options can include:

  • Harris Teeter Pizza Sauce
  • Harris Teeter Sliced Mushrooms
  • Bell peppers, diced
  • Red Onion, diced
  • Fresh basil
  • Pineapple Chunks
  • Harris Teeter Turkey Pepperoni
  • Cooked Bacon
  • Harris Teeter Thick Cut Mozzarella Shreds


Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

Roll out individual portions of pizza dough, if using, to desired thickness. You may need to dust the surface of the dough with flour to prevent sticking. Place rolled out dough or selected crust on a baking sheet coated with parchment paper and labeled with each person’s name.

Spread out sauce on the crust and top as desired. Bake in the oven for 8 minutes (English muffins) or up to 15 minutes (thick crust pizza) – or until crust is baked through and the cheese is melted and golden. Serve immediately.
