For this post, I'll go through the three basic elements that make a basic pizza, that is: the dough, the sauce and the toppings. On that basis, its pretty similar to the breakdown of a Ramen soup, just on a somewhat higher budget, if a quarter can really make a difference on he overall dish.
version is thin and puffy. If you like thin crust then go for the Arab one, which will cook faster, but if you over cook them they'll be quick to break apart as you eat them.
Having found a good platform on which to build our dish, its time to think of the sauce. The sauce is there to provide a base of flavorful moisture to the bread base. With a good enough bread and sauce, you could very well forgo the cheese and just make it a meal after setting it to warm up in the oven.
Bread and sauce dealt with, its topping time.
Once that you have the beast assembled, toast in the oven till cooked to your liking. The fun thing about pizza is that its pretty easy to scale it to your needs or to your tastes. If you just need to whip yourself up some quick lunch for work or school, then a quick spoonful of pasta sauce on a pita bread, a handful of shredded cheese on top, with maybe some fresh herbs, or bits of salad, or some leftover Chinese, or some pulled meats, or some deli slice... by the time you're out of the shower your lunch is cooled down enough to quickly pack it and you're out of the door.
And all that you really need is a toaster oven and a few staples.
