We never need a reason to eat a lovely pizza but with October being National Pizza Month we can indulge even more! For the best, most delicious home cooked pizza we used our Smeg range with built in pizza stone. It delivers pizza just like you’d find in an Italian pizzaria. Molto bene!
Treat yourself to something other than the typical cheese and tomato pizza. Wow your family with one of these recipes of pizza that is to die for.
Mama mia that’s a beautiful pizza! Pizza doesn’t necessarily have to be full of calories and bad for the waistline. This Spinach and Ricotta Pizza featured on Food Network is the perfect answer for when you are craving a naughty pizza takeaway. Make it at home and you know just what goes in it, how healthy it is and you can add additional toppings if you so wish.
Whilst this is a healthy pizza, if you’re not watching your weight, love traditional pizzas then the following recipes are just up your alley!
Utter drool fest. This Barbecue Chicken Pizza by Lil Luna will make you forget all pizza takeaways. You’ll never want a greasy alternative again. The recipe provided does ask for a specific American barbecue sauce but nothing is stopping us from using Red’s True Barbecue, Jack Daniels Barbecue or any other barbecue sauce that may be your favourite. It is simply delicious, easy to make and much healthier than ordering out.
Grab a napkin and wipe the drool away. No seriously, this gives me a bad case of pizza envy. This recipe from Diary of a Recipe Collector is absolutely to die for. Imagine chicken carbonara or cheesy chicken Alfredo on a pizza. It’s a tempting treat that will please the whole family. Two types of cheese, spring onions, cajun spices and fresh garlic make this feel more like a creamy garlic bread than a pizza, but hey I’m game for that! This pizza taught me that you can use other bases besides tomato and barbecue sauces.
There is something so delicious and fresh about seafood. In this recipe from Katherine Mountford she’s taken pizza to next level healthy. This pizza is gluten and dairy free and contains lots of lovely vitamins. Not on a healthy kick? Then make your own pizza crust, add a ton of cheese and indulge in the crispy, gooey, cheesy goodness.
What’s missing from this image of utter perfection? Nothing! This recipe from Good to Know has the earthy taste of pine nuts, the rich, deep taste of sun dried tomatoes and creamy goat’s cheese. If you’re not a fan of pizza sauce bases you’ll be pleasantly surprised that this pizza doesn’t have a sauce. It’s the perfect left over slice for warming up in the microwave at lunch. It doesn’t go soggy!
Celebrate October with a few homemade pizzas instead of the traditional takeaway night. Not only can you make it cheaper than you can buy it, but you’ll also know just what goes in it. Are these the perfect pizzas for everyone? Probably not, but hopefully they will give you a bit of inspiration to try something new!
