Pizza is one of the most popular things to send out for when you do not feel like making dinner. It is a favorite of almost everyone, young and old alike. But you do not have to limit your pizza consumption to take-out only. It is easy to make pizza at home for your family. It also gives you the opportunity to try out some unusual gourmet pizzas that your family is sure to enjoy.
Pizza One – Salami and Cheddar
Start with a plain pizza crust spread out in the pan. On top of the crust, you will not be using regular pizza sauce. Instead, thinly slice a ripe tomato and throw out the seeds. You want to cover the entire bottom of the crust with the sliced tomatoes. Many people like to peel the tomatoes first, but it is not necessary.
After you have the layer of tomatoes, you will want to cut the hard salami slices into slivers or ribbons. Then, simply spread them out across the tomatoes. You can lay them neatly, but this works better if you just jumble them together. On the top, sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese.
Pizza Two – Pesto Pizza
This pizza simply replaces the regular red tomato sauce with a creamy green pesto that you can make or purchase. On top of the pesto sauce, mushrooms, onions, and parmesan cheese make good toppings.
Pizza Three – Buffalo Chicken Pizza
This pizza crust will be spread with a thin layer of blue cheese or ranch dressing. On top, you will spread a mixture of buffalo seasoned chicken chunks, thinly sliced celery, and a sprinkling of cheese. You can purchase buffalo chicken and just rip it apart, or you can cook your own with skinless chicken breasts in a skillet.
Pizza Four – Mexican Pizza
This pizza’s crust can be made traditionally, or with a mixture of cornmeal for a real Mexican flavor. On top, you should spread some salsa that has been drained so it is not as watery. Conversely, you could just use sliced or diced tomatoes. On top of the sauce, you should layer seasoned ground beef, refried beans, and cheese. Garnish with green onions, shredded lettuce, and sour cream.
Pizza Five – Greek Olive Pizza
On top of the regular pizza crust, you should spread a light layer of olive oil. Then, you should arrange fine chopped spinach, diced tomatoes, and crumbled feta cheese. Garnish the top with sliced black olives.
You will love to feed your family these gourmet pizzas. Making your own pizza at home is almost as easy as calling for a delivery. Also, you will not be limited to the same old boring toppings such as pepperoni and onion. Branch out, and try these unusual pizzas in your family.
