Make Pizza At Home
If you’re craving pizza, there are so many ways to go about acquiring it. Order from from your favorite pizzeria and have it delivered right to your front door? Pull one out your freezer and stick it in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes? Or put your culinary academy skills to the test and assemble your own creation? If you chose the last option, here are some homemade pizza ideas that will guarantee a satisfied stomach:
Skillet Pizza: These little individual pizzas are great for families, so everyone can dress their own pizza. It’s also handy for a small group if you want to mix and match varieties. Made on the stovetop with store-bought pizza dough, marinara sauce, and your favorite cheese and toppings, it’s incredibly quick and simple. Get as creative as you want!
Muffuletta Calzone: Calzones seem so much more complicated than they actually are. This recipe is a spin on the American-Italian classic, complete with ham, salami, bell peppers, provolone, and pimento-stuffed olives. Picky kids might not be fans, so make this just for the grown-ups.
Mini Pizzas: These are a great party appetizer or make-ahead snack that you can just pop out of the fridge when you’re getting hunger pangs. This soft, chewy dough, made with yeast, water, flour, salt and olive oil is molded into little cups and filled with your favorite pizza toppings. This recipe calls for sliced mozzarella, tomato sauce, pepperoni, shallots and cherry tomatoes.
Crackerbread Pizza: Bet you can’t eat just one piece of this crackerbread pizza. Between the homemade crunchy cracker and the delicious toppings, it wouldn’t be surprising if you devoured the whole pizza on your own. This is ideal to eat on a Friday night on the couch while enjoying a movie marathon.
Grilled Pizza: If you’re itching to bust out that grill, try making a pizza on it. Topped with ricotta cheese, egg, spigarello and pecorino cheese, this pizza is deceptively simple to prepare. Just be sure that you don’t grill it for too long, as you want your eggs to be a bit runny.
French Bread Pizza: This recipe is exactly what it sounds like – pizza made out of a delectable baguette. As simple as it is quick, French bread pizza is a staple dish that kids love. All it takes is the baguette, sauce, cheese and whatever other toppings you’d like. Try baking some sliced olives or peppers on top.
