I love to make my own pizzas as I put on exactly what I want.

They are far healthier, I buy the bases using a thin base, and there are many recipes that I have put together for different combinations for toppings.

Very yummy and healthier than buying them. Probably cost more though to make my own.

I used to always make them myself.but now that I am living by myself.my neighbour and I will go halves in a really good on once a month or so!
I like making my own, especially chicken, spinach, cashews and maple roasted pumpkin! Yum! Might have to do that again soon!
I don't have an oven, or I would make my own.

I absolutely hate with a passion any kind of frozen pizza.Yuck!

I know, gross right?!

I love making and buying them. I do the latter when I'm in the mood for hot, salty and oily food.

We have not bought pizza in years. We used to buy them all the time, but now it is just the occasional treat at a restaurant. I have made pizza once, and it was delicious, but I don't do it regularly for a few reasons:

1. My recipe makes four pizzas, and if only one person wants pizza, it is a waste.
2. You have to plan exactly when you are going to eat, and have time in the day to prepare.
3. There is always someone else in the kitchen, so I can't get in to prepare it.

Why not divide Quantities' by four, so 'Pizza for One'?

The other factors would still apply, and that would be an awful lot of effort for just one pizza. And splitting the ingredients for just one potion would be tricky. 4 only requires 250g flour. Working with only 75g flour and trying to proportion everything else out correctly would not be easy to work with.
We mainly make pizza (one a week!!) with a bought gluten free base. My partner is the pizza maker in our house and our daughter sometimes helps. We used to buy pizza a lot, but these days it's quicker and easier (not to mention healthier!) to just make it at home.
We rarely buy pizza. I have made them. When I make them I make them on a pitta bread base so it's small enough for just one and everyone gets their own individual one so everyone gets to choose their own toppings

We make our own. Takes next to no time and you can sneak healthy food in the toppings.

Oh, and if you have leftover dough it keeps very well in the freezer.

I prefer just about anything homemade. I eat so much homemade food that when I buy fast food its like garbage.

I always make my own either with a homemade pizza dough or flat bread base.
I buy the base from the supermarket and make my own, often with chicken/avocado/mushrooms, ham and cheese on top.
Half n half :)

It is quicker for me to assemble a simple pizza with the toppings I like. I can do a nice spread and be very generous.

I don't buy frozen pizza.

I would pay for gourmet pizza with unusual flavours at a pizza restaurant.
Have never made one.

Buy whoever's cheapest, my fave is Ham, Mushroom & Anchovy, with double the latter two ingredients.
Get one as a treat every few months' delivered!
We only have 1 of those small ovens that sit on a small table in the kitchen, but it doesn't have a timer, so I hardly ever use it. While we were in Bali last month we bought a couple of pizzas, at the Oka Bakery in Canggu. We had ham/pineapple the 1st time, (nice,) then a few nights later, we had 1 with various meats, which was not so nice! When we come home, from a trip, I don't like to cook a real dinner for the 1st couple of nights, so we bought..(sorry guys) a frozen pizza! It didn't work out very well, heating it up in the small oven, even with extra toppings. The following week we came home late from somewhere, & had the other 1/2 of the frozen pizza, (it hadn't been left out of the freezer for the week,) stuck on more toppings, left it in the oven for a longer time, & it was much, much nicer. It's amazing, I guess, what 1 can eat, if they're really hungry!

During our last trip to Melbourne, we took our 2 young (vegetarian) granddaughters over to the other daughters house for the weekend-end. My daughter & her partner made 5 different pizzas from scratch! They were very nice. Before the girls came over they made 3 different meat pizzas, which I'd liked a little better, but they thought they vegetarian ones were the best ones they'd ever made! On 1 visit we bought a pizza from across the road, after being out all day, which was very bland, compared to what they serve up!

I always make them but with store bought dough.
