Culture Food It’s Not Delivery – It’s 10 Recipes for the Best Homemade Pizza

| Wednesday, 4 June 2014 17:18

We think Dean Martin says it best, “when the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s amore.” Actually, we’re not quite sure what he was saying. We got to the pizza part and kind of trailed off… but can you blame us? There are few foods in the world as perfect as pizza. Pizza dough is a fluffy canvas, and we’re here to share some food art to fling at it. Pizza is so magical even Nadia G dedicated a whole episode to three heavenly pizza recipes

Join in on our 24/7 pizza party with these incredible recipes. 

Caramelized Onion BBQ Pizza


Thanks Laura!

You know how it usually goes; white dough, red sauce, cheese, and some sort of pepperoni. Well, we’re here to invite you to push boundaries, people! We love the use of BBQ sauce on this pie, not to mention the two cheese and pancetta options. With caramelized onions as the show-stopping topper, we’re sure you’ll have all four servings to yourself.

Grilled Corn and Chipotle Pesto Pizza with Queso Fresco  


Thanks Half Baked Harvest!

Want to improve pretty much anything? Add avocado. This pizza does that, and much more, incorporating summer-staple corn, and including cheese not only in the pesto but as a topper! With all the chipotle and jalapeño involved, we appreciate how thirsty this pizza might make us. You know, ‘cuz beer goes great with pizza. 

Pizza Buns


Thanks Savory Notes!

These buns are the savoury counterpart to their cinnamon brothers, and they’re pretty much perfect picnic food. Take our advice and don’t worry about how neatly you roll ‘em up. No one eating them will ever care. 

Egg Pizza


Thanks 1000 threads!

If you’ve never had breakfast pizza, it’s time we rocked your world. No, we don’t mean having leftover cold pizza for breakfast, although that technically counts. This unlikely topping pulls from the universal awesomeness that is dipping toast in to egg yolk. Just try it, okay? 

Strawberry, Basil & Feta Cheese Pizza

Thanks Garlic Girl Blog!

We love this flavour combo, because it can technically pass for dinner pizza or dessert pizza. A little sweet and a little salty, it meets all our craving requirements. We just recommend making more than one at a time because the more you have it, the more you’ll want it. 

Supreme Pizza Bagels


Thanks Danna Klein!

If your childhood was anything like ours, pizza bagels were a big deal. Mom would somehow let these slip through the cracks far more frequently than delivery. And hey, we’ll take what we can get. Re-live some childhood memories without having to deal without the frozen and occasionally burnt variety.

Low Carb Flax & Parmesan Pizza Crust (Gluten Free)


Thanks ibreathimhungry!

Pizza isn’t a health food, or a vegetable, not matter who tries to convince us it is. However, there are all sorts of crusts being invented that lighten the load, and in this case, make sure that our celiac friends don’t miss out on pizza simultaneously. Don’t be afraid of flax seeds, they’re helping you eat pizza more often without health complications.

Peanut Butter S’mores Pizza

Thanks LawStudentsWife!

This dessert pizza is not to be messed with. This is a serious concoction of honey dough, chocolate, marshmallows, and creamy peanut butter. It should only be consumed with supervision, as it’ll likely send you directly in to a food coma.

Beer Cheese Pizza Dip


Thanks Parade Magazine!

Um…so…this is amazing. We think the name and photo pretty much says it all. But want to improve it further? Dip any of the savoury pizzas above in to it. Yup, pizza-ception.

Apple Pie Pizza


Thanks Dessert For Two!

This isn’t your grandma’s apple pie. And sorry we’re not sorry, it’s even better. Just imagine a warm dough supporting sugar and cinnamon dusted apples. The caramel consistency and powdered sugar glaze just take it over the top. I think we’re getting full. 

We apologize to all the pizza delivery people of the world, for any decline in your business following this blog post.
