I'm sure there are people who don't like pizza. Personally, I've never met them. Finding a good pizzeria isn't a goal, it's a quest. Whether you like thin crust pizza or thick Sicilian style; tomato sauce and cheese only, or pizza with lots of different toppings, you can make your own pizza at home quite easily. If you have the time and inclination, you can make your own dough. But if it's a quick dinner you're after, you can buy premade pizza dough or get pizza crust in a can. Honestly, it's quite good! Here's a little tutorial on making everyone's favorite food.

1 can pizza crust (look for it in the biscuit/crescent roll section)
1/2 - 3/4 cup of your favorite ready-made sauce
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/2 tsp butter + 1/2 tsp olive oil
2 piquillo peppers or red roasted peppers, sliced
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
1/4 cup grated cheese
6 ready-made turkey meatballs, sliced (or substitute sliced sausage or pepperoni)
garlic salt, oregano

In a small saute pan, heat the butter and oil. Saute
the onions over low heat for about 20 minutes . This will carmelize them.

Open can of pizza crust. Lightly spray a 9 X 13 rimmed pan with
cooking spray and pat out the crust.

Top the dough with the sauce, spreading it to within a half-inch of the edge. Season with garlic salt and oregano.

Add half the shredded mozzarella, then layer the meatball slices, the sliced red peppers, the onions, and the other half of the mozzarella. Top with the grated cheese.

Preheat oven according to crust package instructions (usually 400 degrees) and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Slice and enjoy! You'll get 8 generous slices. Leftovers freeze well if there are any.
