Stop right there: Don’t simmer your sauce first! For the super-flavorful tomato taste of a classic margherita pizza, you’ll want to go with a raw sauce. Trust us: It will cook plenty once you throw it on the pie in the hot oven!


2. Seeing Green

This sheet-pan pizza is a whole meal in itself! You’ve got shredded chicken, homemade walnut pesto, tomatoes and lots and lots of cheese. Plus, the homemade dough recipe makes enough for two pies, meaning you can freeze half and bank on another pizza night in your future.


3. Flatbread Fun

Truth: playing with food is still fun as an adult! Thanks to some simple shaping ideas and creative toppings, you can go wild turning your kid’s favorite dinner into a bear, llama, octopus or lion. Rawr!


5. Grill Baby Grill

You already know your grill is good for so much more than burgers and dogs. And pizza is definitely our new favorite thing to add to a BBQ menu. Start by grilling the dough on its own for 2-3 minutes per side, than add the cheese — and all your favorite toppings! — right to it.

6. No Gluten, No Problem

This gluten-free pizza crust has a secret ingredient: sunflower seeds! Grind them into a flour-like consistency and add them to your dough for an extra nutty flavor.


7. Deep Dish Delish

You only really need flour, water, salt, and yeast to make pizza dough. But this classic deep-dish pizza recipe calls for an enriched dough, meaning you also add olive oil and honey. Believe us, it takes the flavor game off the charts!


8. Cauliflower Power

OK, here’s one where you can totally cheat a little: Pick up a frozen cauliflower crust, then top and bake it however you like. We went with a white pizza and used lots of mozzarella, Parmesan and more to make it ah-mazing.
