Pizza Night!

My family loves pizza, so making it a Friday night tradition is a no brainer for this busy family! Fortunately Trader Joe's makes it affordable and healthy for us. TJ's has a great frozen and fresh (personal size) pizza selection. Even though there are four of us we usually cook four pizzas. These TJ's pizzas are thin crust and light on the cheese, so not nearly as much food (and calories) as takeout style pizzas. Plus, we always have leftovers which make great snacks the next day.
