This pesto-based pizza is an amazingly simple and delicious variation to your regular pizza. Adapted from a pizza idea at a popular Neapolitan pizza restaurant in Washington DC, it'll take minutes to make and will disappear in even less time!
Delicious and loaded with fresh veggies, this is pizza for people who want a change from tomato sauce. Use any fresh veggies and any pizza crust. Use light dressing and reduced-fat cheese for an even more healthful meal.
This is among my husband's favorite dinners! The flavors compliment each other so well and it is so easy! I use frozen bread dough to speed the process. Set out dough before you leave for work and you are ready to go by the time you get home!
Even with a baking stone, a conventional oven is no match for a professional oven when it comes to making pizza. At home, or rather in your backyard, the grill is the way to go. The heat of a hot grill is perfect, and makes it possible to make incredible pizza at home. Use your favorite toppings, but keep in mind not to overload the pizza. Keep it light. Try it - everything is better on the grill!
A convenient, quick, low-cost way to whip up a yummy cauliflower pizza (or flatbread) for one. Buy inexpensive frozen cauliflower when on sale and thaw as needed to make a single crust. Uses just a few ingredients I always have on hand. The seeds are carried in the health section of grocery stores, even in my small town. You could leave them out, but I recommend them for added nutrition-especially iron, fiber, and protein.
This recipe uses dried porcini mushrooms that have been rehydrated in warm water. If you can find fresh porcinis, also known as cepes and the great bolete, you should definitely use them! It's an amazing taste.
This is an upscale appetizer with lots of flavor. My college-age daughter, Haven, threw this together, and it is wonderful! (She's much more experimental in the kitchen than I am!) Great for an appetizer buffet.
This pizza is a baked version of a cream cheese summer pizza... packaged pizza dough, covered with a spread of cream cheese, sour cream and dill, topped with a skillet of onions, garlic, red pepper, baby spinach and mushrooms baked together
These are to die for if you are a vegetarian, or just love great spicy pizza without all the calories. I stumbled across these prepackaged and decided to make them part of my recipe box because they are so yummy and easy to prepare for family or guests. Portabello mushroom topped with cheese, tomato, spices, black olives and balsamic vinaigrette.
Pizza on an outdoor grill is a great alternative to oven-cooked pizza. If you love crispy crust, this is for you. Note: cook time is relatively short, so alternative toppings like uncooked sausage or other meats may not cook fully.
I love baked Brie. This is an easy and delicious way to prepare it. Any kind of jam may be used in place of cranberry sauce (I like raspberry). I have been told by many that they'd like to make a meal out of it.
