I bought a pizza maker about 6 months ago and it was the best and most well used purchase I have made in a long time. It makes a quick and nutritional meal in no time. Depending on what you put on your pizza it makes a cheap meal.
I often keep a pack of 2 pizza bases in the freezer for the unexpected. We probably have a pizza once a week and I love to use fresh basil and other herbs and fill it with prawns or meat, onions,mushrooms, sometimes just vegetarian.
I occasionally make my own pizza base out of whole-meal flour, or I may do a gluten free base. Depends who is home to eat. You can also make a base like the recipe below.
This is the pizza maker I bought from Amazon, it is called a National Presto 03430 Presto Pizzazz Pizza Maker. It cost about $45 and sometimes there is free shipping.

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Coat a large round pizza pan with nonstick spray. Sprinkle with the cornmeal.
In a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat, combine the oil and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until fragrant. Add the tomatoes, basil, and salt. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, or until the tomatoes are soft. Remove from the heat.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Roll into a 12″ circle. Place on the prepared pan. Spread the tomato sauce over the dough to within 1/4″ of the edge. Sprinkle with the mozzarella.
