The One Thing That Aldi Stores Sell Out of On Friday Nights Won’t Surprise You
For all that people talk about the chocolate, cheese, and wine at Aldi, they really should also add the take-and-bake pizza to the conversation. A lot of people are already wise to them: A company rep once told us that certain stores sell out of pizzas pretty early on Friday nights. But, for the most part, it seems like people don’t rave about these things nearly as much as they should. So that’s what I’m going to do right now!

Recipe: Spinach, White Bean, and Taleggio Pizza
Not so long ago I ate dinner at Co., the New York pizza place owned by Jim Lahey (he of the Sullivan Street Bakery and No-Knead Bread). There’s a pie on the menu called The Popeye that comes with a mountain of crispy, leafy spinach on top. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it in the weeks since that dinner, so what’s a pie-loving gal to do but make her own version at home?

Change It Up! 6 Alternatives to Tomato Sauce on Pizza
We tend to eat a lot of pizza during the summer months. Not only is pizza the perfect vehicle for fresh seasonal toppings, but we can make them on the grill or the stove top without heating up the kitchen. But we do get tired of using the same old tomato sauce as the base time and again.It seems like almost any sauce that you’d toss with pasta or pre-dinner dip can make a good base for a pizza if you pair it with the right toppings.

How To Make Pizza Poppers
Even those of us who used to (or still do) snack on those microwaveable bite-sized pizza snacks have to admit: they don’t taste much like pizza. Coupled with their lack of nutritional value, there’s really no reason why they’re still one of America’s highest-selling frozen snack foods. Especially since making pizza poppers at home is surprisingly easy — plus they freeze perfectly for a post-work snack!

Recipe: Sausage Pizza with Crispy Kale Chips
I love making pizza dough, and it’s not nearly as hard as you think. But lately I’ve been using store-bought dough, and to be honest, it’s pretty hard to beat. In fact, this pizza is so good (and green! Look at all that kale!) that I haven’t ordered a pie in two months. And I live in New York, people. Store-bought dough qualifies this pizza as a six-ingredient recipe, although you’d only need eight to make your own dough from scratch.

Want Really Thin Pizza Crust? Use a Rolling Pin
I love me some thin-crust pizza. I mean really thin. Crispy, cracker-like, and keep it coming. The best tool for making perfect thin crust pizza at home? Try a rolling pin.Don’t ask me why it took me so long to apply to my weeknight pizzas something that I use all the time to roll out thin crusts in my baking, but something finally clicked. A rolling pin works like a charm.

Recipe: Southwestern Pizza with Black Beans and Corn
As a regular visitor to the Columbus Brewing Company in Columbus, Ohio, I probably ate their Sante Fe Pizza at least once a week. I just couldn’t resist that spicy black bean “hummus” spread on chewy flatbread and topped with plenty of cheese, no matter how many times I promised myself that I’d branch out. Moving away left a definite void in my life. Here is my small ode to both the CBC pizza and the incredible folks, my friends, who work there.

Recipe: BBQ Chicken Pizza
Store-bought pizza dough, leftover chicken, BBQ sauce … check, check, check! This weeknight pizza couldn’t be easier. It’s savory, sweet, tangy, and it only takes 15 minutes of oven time. Who could ask for anything more? I definitely took some shortcuts with the ingredient list here to minimize cooking time on weeknights.

Beyond Pizza! Five Other Ways to Use Pizza Dough
Who would have thought that a little ball of dough could be used for so many things?Whether you make it yourself or buy it at the store, pizza dough can be used for all sorts of things. Check out these ideas:1. Calzones – Calzones are essentially double-crusted individual pizzas after all! A 1-pound ball will make 3-4 calzones.2. Pitas and Flat Breads – The recipe for pita bread is remarkably closed to the one for pizza.

Chicago-Style Deep-Dish Pizza & No-Knead Cornmeal Crust Cookbook Review & Recipe from Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François
How do you make no-knead bread even easier? Make no-knead pizzas instead. As Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François say in the introduction to their newest cookbook, “If you have a batch of our stored dough in the fridge, and you’ve pre-heated your oven, you can be as little as ten minutes away from piping hot pizzas…For busy people, there’s no quicker dinner.

Do You Have a Recipe for Chinese Pizza?
Q: Does anyone have a recipe for Chinese pizza? I don’t know if it has another name but that’s the only one I know. It’s like a thin crepe/tortilla, crunchy on the bottom, kind of chewy and topped with a thin layer of egg and a lot of chives. It’s really nice and I wish to be able to do it at home.

Peter Reinhart’s Best Pizza Dough Ever
During Pizza Week we’ve talked a lot about pizza crust, but we’ve mainly focused on quick recipes, ones that don’t need a long rise or even any yeast. But what if you have a little more time and want to make a serious pizza crust, one with yeast and chew and great flavor? I have the perfect recipe for you, and it takes no more work — just a little extra time. Meet the dough that made me a pizza-maker: Peter Reinhart’s best pizza dough ever.

What Are Some Good Desserts to Serve After Pizza?
Q: I am having a dinner party and serving homemade pizza. I am having a hard time coming up with a good dessert to serve, as I feel like a pie, cake, or bar might be too heavy to have after some hearty pizza. Any suggestions for a light, delicious, fall dessert?Sent by CaitlinEditor: Caitlin, what about ice cream?

Making Pizza Dreams Come True: A Small, Fast, Portable Wood-Fired Pizza Oven
Get your gift lists out, people, because we’re about to share a top contender for next year’s holiday wishlists. It goes like this: Wood-fired pizza, made at home, in your own pizza oven. And no, you didn’t have to build it in your backyard. In fact, this pizza oven is about the size of a carry-on suitcase (only much flatter), weighs 15 lbs, and makes crispy, blackened wood-smoked pizza in 3 minutes. Say hello to Uuni.

Recipe: Avocado and Egg Breakfast Pizza
Avocado. Fried eggs. Pizza dough. I probably don’t have to tell you that combining three of the world’s greatest foods gives you one fine breakfast: a warm round of chewy crust topped with a bright, cilantro-speckled avocado mash, and the perfect oozy egg. I’ve always eaten breakfast, but for many years I subsisted on cereal with milk, or toast with butter and jam — simple, carb-y meals that usually left me hungry a couple hours later.

From the Wood-Fired Oven by Richard Miscovich
If you love bread — real, fresh, from the hearth-style bread — and if you love to make bread at home, then I’ll bet at some point you’ve fantasized about baking bread in your own backyard wood-fired oven. Right? You probably threw a few pizzas in there while you were at it, and then went on to tuck in a beef roast so it could slowly braise while the oven cooled. I mean, who wouldn’t?

Pizza by Gabriele Bonci
As easy as it is to pick up a pre-made ball of pizza dough from Trader Joe’s, sometimes a pizza lover needs to go all out. And if you’re going to go all out, following the instructions of Italian pizza master Gabriele Bonci is definitely the way to go.

Has This Pizza Disaster Ever Happened to You?
This week I had planned to write about pizza. Four pies with perfectly chewy crust and gorgeous flavor combinations, created by my brother. The problem? The pizza stone broke, in all of its perfectly seasoned glory. Has this ever happened to anyone? We’re talking split, earthquake style, into two halves!

Recipe: Pepperoni Skillet Pizza
Hey, did you know that butter makes everything better? Even pizza dough! In fact, folding a little butter into pizza dough is my favorite way to take any store-bought pizza dough to the next level — especially when I’m making a flaky, golden-crusted skillet pizza like this one for dinner. These days you can actually get pretty decent pizza dough at most grocery stores.

5 Ways to Pizza-fy Your Leftovers
A fridge full of leftovers feels like a blessing some nights, and a guilt trip on others. I don’t always want to eat the same thing for two nights in a row, but I usually can’t bear to let things go to waste. To make a repeat meal feel new again, I’ve come up with a no-fail way to revive yesterday’s dinner: I put it on a pizza.

Recipe: Roasted Asparagus & Ricotta Pizza
This recipe makes enough pizza dough for two sheet pan pizzas – one ball of dough for now, and one to freeze for later. If you don’t feel like making pizza dough from scratch, store-bought dough works just fine. Or, better yet, ask your local pizza parlor to sell you a few balls of fresh dough! A white pizza topped with pretty spears of asparagus is a great way to celebrate spring and asparagus season!

5 Pizza Toppings That Should Always Be Precooked
A great pizza has the right balance of sauce, cheese, and crust — but don’t forget about the toppings! While most toppings can just be chopped up and tossed onto the pizza before baking, there are a few that should be precooked first for better texture and flavor. Pizzas usually don’t take very long to bake, and the bake time is really to crisp the dough and melt the cheese.

Recipe: Cheesy Pizza Pinwheels
What’s not to love about a pizza pinwheel? It’s the cheesy, pepperoni-topped pizza we all know and love, but in a form that allows it to be stacked on a plate and passed around the room. Late-night study session? Movie night? Saturday board games with friends? Pizza pinwheels are here for you. Another thing I like about these pizza pinwheels: they can be baked right away. No need to wait for the rolls to rise.

Recipe: Cheesy BBQ Chicken Calzone
For those of you who don’t know me well, I am a full-fledged pizza junkie. I’m no snob, either — I don’t care whether it’s Pizzeria Mozza in Los Angeles or Papa John’s down the street. I’ll eat a slice from a truck stop, no problem, and I keep a secret stash of pepperoni bagel bites in my freezer. It’s okay, I’ve got no shame! But my favorite pies and calzones are always the ones straight from my own oven.

What Are Some Non-Cow’s Milk Cheeses I Can Use on Pizza?
Q: For several years I have not been able to eat cow’s milk cheese due to the way my skin reacts. However, other cheeses and dairy are OK (i.e., goat cheese, sheep’s milk cheese, etc.). This dietary restriction really isn’t so bad, the only thing I miss dearly is pizza! I’m wondering if anyone has any suggestions for types of non-cow’s milk cheese to use that could offer a similar satisfaction as mozzarella might on pizza?

Pizza-Flavored Ice Cream Exists. How Do We Feel About This?
We love pizza, and we love ice cream, but we’re not sure it’s a good idea to combine the two. Don’t tell that to the ice cream company Coolhaus: They rose to fame with their ice cream sandwich trucks that sell sandwiches named after famous architects, but this new mash-up might just eclipse those cleverly titled desserts.

5 Fun Ways to Turn Naan into Dinner
No matter the entrée, an Indian dinner just isn’t complete without a side of naan. In fact, I’ll happily skip the rice and double down with an extra piece of naan every time. But this puffed flatbread has the power to move beyond dinner accoutrement. It’s worthy of a role far better — like actually being the main course.
May 1, 2019
Recipe: Saag Paneer Pizza
I love how easy it is to find naan bread nowadays, from the fresh ones at Whole Foods to the frozen garlic naan at Trader Joe’s. Lately this soft Indian flatbread has been my go-to base for sandwiches and, to my pleasant surprise, pizzas. Here’s a tasty pizza inspired by one of my favorite Indian dishes, saag paneer. Saag paneer is a spiced, creamy spinach stew finished with soft pieces of mild paneer cheese.

I Can’t Stop Staring at This Beautiful Fruit Pizza
I love the concept of a dessert “pizza.” You make a giant sugar cookie, slather it with cream cheese frosting, and then top it with fresh fruit. Is there anything better than that? If you like your cookies on the thicker side, you’ll love this recipe. Affectionately dubbed a “Chicago-style” fruit pizza, this cookie is chewy and moist, reminiscent of the deep-dish pies found in Chicago. The best part of this pizza is, of course, the gorgeous fruit pattern on top.

Recipe: Chicken Caesar Pizza
There’s a time to eat salad with your pizza, and then there’s a time when salad is best eaten on your pizza. Right now it’s time for the latter, when the flavors of Caesar salad and pizza team up and join forces for a delicious take on dinner. This is the kind of pizza that can be as simple or involved as you want to make it.

Come summer, it’s just way too hot to crank the oven up to 500°F, but don’t worry — you can still make pizza! Grilled pizza is arguably the best use of your grill this summer. Not only will you achieve a crisp, charred crust, but it also happens to be a whole lot of fun to make. It helps to know a few tips and tricks to ensure that your end result is a success.

Recipe: Muffin Pan Deep-Dish Pizzas
Homemade deep-dish pizza is something of a commitment and hardly one you’re likely to make on a weeknight. But we like the idea of a pizza casserole and have found the muffin tin puts a weeknight-friendly spin on the concept, producing single-serve deep-dish pizzas that are a breeze to put together. Just like the original deep-dish pizza, these mini versions also have a soft, doughy crust piled high with a thick layer of melted cheese, sauce, and your toppings of choice.

The One Thing You Should Ask for When Throwing a Kids’ Pizza Party
For my daughter’s first birthday party a few years ago, I went all out and made an entire multi-dish lunch and cake from scratch. It was super stressful and just not necessary. For her next two parties, I decided we would just get pizzas delivered and I would focus my attention on the cake instead, which was much more manageable and fun.

Need an Easy, Fun Birthday Party Idea? The Monster Pizza Party Is It
When my husband and I added to our family, we had no idea how much we’d lean on friends, families, and even coworkers during the first year. We wanted to include as many folks as possible when we celebrated our second-born’s first birthday, but we also had a budget and tight schedule to work around — and that’s how a Monster Pizza Party became the theme for one of the most fun and successful kids’ parties we’ve celebrated to date.

The Internet Is Freaking Out Over This Strange Pizza Topping
Remember when pineapple pizza caused an uproar and dipping pizza in milk was the source of internet outrage? Those were simpler times. The internet has found a new battle to fight in the grand ol’ pizza war: Do melted Peeps belong on top of a pizza? By Peeps, I’m referring to the candy. You know, the marshmallow-based treat shaped like a chick, rabbit, or other cuddly animal. Sold primarily in Canada and the United States around Easter, the confection is fluffy, sweet, and sugary.

Whether you shop with a plan or simply buy whatever looks good in the moment, this template teaches you how to transform your haul of fresh veggies and herbs into an irresistible pizza that tastes like summer. It will be cheesy and indulgent, thanks to a layer of herby ricotta and stringy mozzarella, and balanced with a mess of fresh toppings.

This Is the Wine I Always Drink with Pizza
My husband and I enjoy pizza night at home almost every Friday night, and it’s a tradition we don’t plan on shaking anytime soon. It usually starts with sipping Americanos and munching on marinated olives on the couch while the pizza stone preheats in the oven. Then, as we assemble our pies, we pop open a bottle of wine. It’s the same kind of wine each and every time because, in my opinion, it’s the best bottle you can drink with just about any kind of pizza.

Trader Joe’s Is Now Selling Cauliflower Crust Cheese Pizza
Cauliflower crusts are all the rage these days. They’re made from vegetables, after all, and are a low-carb option for those looking to cut back or who can’t eat gluten. Trader Joe’s brought a pre-made cauliflower pizza crust to its supermarkets earlier this summer, which quickly gained cult-favorite status, and now they’re going the extra mile. The grocer is back with a ready-to-bake gluten-free cheese pizza featuring a cauliflower crust.

This Pizza Cutter Will Make Pizza Night Even Better than Usual
Here at Kitchn, we’ve used a lot of pizza cutters over the years. And guess what? It’s amazing how bad some can be! Some aren’t sharp enough to cut through crust, some have wheels so small that your hand ends up knuckles deep in hot bubbling cheese and sauce, and some are impossible to clean. We’ve found a couple favorites, though — and this OXO Good Grips Pizza Wheel and Cutter, which happens to be on sale right now, is one of them.

Pizza scones are exactly what they sound like: a quick bread stuffed with cheese, seasoning, and mini pepperonis and dipped in marinara sauce.

This Pizza Cutter Will Change Your Life
Not to be dramatic or anything, but a good pizza cutter can seriously be life-changing. If you make your own pizza at home, you definitely need a good pizza cutter. (No matter how good your favorite chef’s knife is, it’s never going to cut gooey cheese and chewy crust without mangling everything in its wake.) And even if you tend to stick to take-out from your favorite pizza joint, you almost always need a good tool to finish separating the last little bit of each slice.

3 Things You Should Always Ask for When Ordering Pizza for a Party
There is no bigger crowd-pleaser than a piping-hot pizza. Literally no one has ever gone to a party and lamented to their friends that they wish the host had served something else instead of pizza. And pizza works for every kind of event, from a casual, Saturday night get-together to a more official birthday party for a 35-year-old coworker. It’s hard to mess up ordering a pizza — as long as you order enough (see: The Right Amount of Pizza to Order for a Party).

Yes, You Should Be Putting Eggs on Your Pizza
The first time I discovered eggs on pizza was years ago at this hip pizza spot in New York City, within the first few months of moving to the city.

Now it’s one of my favorite things to order when I am there.

10 Grocery Store Buys for Better Pizza
We make pizza once a week in our house for a ritual we love called Pizza Friday. Most often we’re pulling bits and bobs from the fridge to make the most of leftovers as pizza toppings, but every once in awhile we make a special grocery run for pizza ingredients. These grocery-run pizzas feel special because we can pick out ingredients for everything from the crust to the cheese — and often these items stray from our routine of cheese pizza with leftovers.

My Strategy for Making Pizza Healthier (at Home or Out)
I probably sound like everyone else when I say pizza is one of my favorite foods.

Whole Foods Is Now Selling a Gluten-Free Beet Crust Pizza
Cauliflower pizza crusts are so trendy right now. Costco just introduced two new frozen pizzas with cauliflower crusts, and the cauli crusts at Trader Joe’s are so popular the stores even added cauliflower gnocchi and cauliflower rice to their lineup.

How To Make the Best, Easiest Cauliflower Pizza
Whether you follow a gluten-free or low-carb diet — or simply want a new way to eat pizza — cauliflower crust is the answer. The problem is, most of them suck. They take forever to make and yield subpar results: bland, limp crusts that can barely handle sauce and cheese. Unfortunately, store-bought varieties are just as disappointing. I was determined to make a simplified, far-more-delicious version — one with super-crispy edges and maximum flavor. This recipe is that and more.

Who Cares About an English Lit Degree When You Can Now Major in Pizza?

5 Easy 3-Ingredient Pizza Sauces
You can make some pretty awesome pizza sauces from things you likely already have in your pantry. It doesn’t even have to be tomato-based (but I will argue a pizza party without a red-sauce pizza really isn’t a party at all). I love riffing though, whether that means making a creamy Alfredo-inspired sauce or an herby pesto. Lean on any of these five (three-ingredient) sauces the next time it’s homemade pizza night and you’ll forget all about that jarred stuff.

7 Things I Never Do When Making Homemade Pizza
I’m not sure when I turned into such a pizza fanatic, but when you’re willing to drive six hours roundtrip to eat at a pizza place you read about online and put down several hundred dollars for an outdoor pizza oven, you’ve got to admit to yourself that pizza isn’t just something you enjoy eating on Friday night — it’s your passion. For years, making great pizza at home always eluded me.

Why I’ve Become a Pizza Steel Convert
Last year I did a wild thing and got rid of my pizza stone. We have pizza once a week and I used that stone a ton! But I fell in love with another pizza cooking product that was easier to store, made for a crisper crust, and held more pizza: the baking steel. Here’s why I ditched my pizza stone and became a pizza baking steel convert. The Baking Steel was pioneered in 2012 by Andris Lagsdin, after a much-lauded Kickstarter campaign helped launch the brand and concept.

This Smart Hack Will Change Your Mind About Frozen Pizza
That woman sprinting in heels to the frozen food section at 5 p.m.? That’s me when I forget to plan something for dinner. I’m a working single mom with three kids, and I’ve definitely been known to heat up a couple of frozen pizzas, bust out the paper plates, and eat in front of the television with my kiddos. But honestly, my brood has never actually loved frozen pizza night. They complain the crust is too soggy and tell me my homemade pizza is way better.

Is there any more perfect party food than pizza? Completely customizable, perfectly portionable, and, well, just about irresistible, it can feed everyone from toddlers to octogenarians with ease.
