Pizza Recipes

<a href="/recipes/pizza/dough/">Dough</a>. Tomato sauce. Mozzarella cheese. It all sounds so simple, and yet a great pizza recipe is one of the most craveable dishes on the planet. Polarizing too: Canadian bacon with pineapple might get the green light in your household, while the family down the block never wavers from sausage and mushroom with extra onion. That's the genius of pizza - it's basically a vehicle for the flavors you like best. You can even eat pizza in the morning if you're game -- <a href="/recipes/pizza/fruit/">fruit pizza</a>, anyone? When you're making your own pizza, keep a few things in mind. 1. You want your oven extremely hot to achieve a crisp crust (a pizza stone is a worthwhile investment). 2. Take the time to make your own <a href="/recipes/pizza/sauce/">sauce</a>. Jarred sauces taste, well, jarred, and making a fresh sauce only takes a few minutes. 3. Don't overload your pie with toppings - too much on top and you won't get even cooking. Nothing is more depressing than a soggy pizza. Once you've nailed down the basics, you're ready to cook. Break out the pepperoni and enjoy.

Lahmahjoon Pizza

From EatingWell

Garden Pizza

Bell pepper, zucchini and a fresh tomato sauce give this vegetarian pizza a taste of summer. Beer pairing: Look for a brew without overpowering flavors, such as a lager or a less yeasty witbier, so the pizza's fresh, subtle flavors can shine.

Black Bean Nacho Pizza

From EatingWell

Break out the napkins! This pie is an over-the-top, vegetarian concoction with black-bean spread, Jack cheese, tomatoes, scallions, olives and pickled jalapenos; it's part nacho, part pizza. For an even more decadent treat, serve with low-fat sour cream. Beer pairing: Spicy foods need spicy beers--go for an India Pale Ale (IPA). If you're not a hop-head, the malty sweetness of brown ales work well with the sweeter elements on the pizza.

Italians usually get the credit for inventing pizza, but some people believe that Turkish pide (flatbreads with toppings) may have come first. This recipe is an adaptation of a pizza discovered in a street-side cafe in the Mediterranean coastal city of Antalya.
