Our Top 10 Pizza Recipes

Italy can boast of many achievements - it is the birthplace of the Renaissance and some of history's greatest artists and scientists. However, Italy is probably best known for its simplest invention: the pizza! There is no other food so basic yet so universally loved. There are hundreds of variations on the basic pizza recipe for a busy cook to sort through. We have listed ten of our favorites. We've got traditional Italian Pizza Rustica, featuring a blend of cheeses and dried meats; a tomato-free White Pizza from the American East Coast, and a spicy Texan BBQ Chicken Pizza. Several selections include a pizza crust recipe, and there are plenty of tips on making a delicious pizza sauce as well.


We hope that you'll love these pizzas - we do!

Italian Pizzas

Pizza Rustica -
Pizza Rustica is an authentically Italian pizza. It's packed with delicious Italian meats - vegetarians need not apply!

Grilled Cheese and Tomato Pizzas - Grilled pizza can be a delicious change of pace. Because the pizza is not on a baking sheet, it becomes crispy on the bottom while still being soft on the top.

Spinach Calzones - Calzones are delicious Italian turnovers, usually made from pizza dough. Save your leftover dough and throw together some of these tasty treats!

American Regional Specialty Pizzas

Chicago-Style Deep-Dish Pizza - Growing up in Chicagoland, I always looked forward to getting deep-dish pizza from Lou Malnati's or Uno's. Now I know that the same taste can be created at home, at a fraction of the cost!

BBQ Chicken Pizza - Try BBQ Chicken Pizza for a delicious taste of the Southwest. This recipe is great for nights when you're tired of tomato-based pizzas.

White Pizza with Chicken, Basil, and Olive Oil Glaze - White Pizza is very popular in the Northeast. As the name suggests, this pizza does not use tomato sauce.


Sweet and Unique Pizzas

Leek, Tomato and Goat Cheese Pizza
- The British Isles meet the Mediterranean in this savory pizza. Leek, Tomato and Goat Cheese Pizza is great for those who don't like their pizzas bland.

Cold Shrimp Pizza - Cold Shrimp "Pizza" is a clever little appetizer - it's really a seafood-and-cream-cheese spread served with crackers. It has a breezy, West Coast taste that is perfectly complimented by a light fruit cocktail.

Blueberry Dessert Pizza - Blueberries are so light and tart that they don't taste cloying when paired with a sweet crust. The addition of nuts and cinnamon gives this kids' recipe an adult sophistication.

Brownie Pizza - You might feel guilty eating such a rich dessert, but you'll feel even guiltier if you miss your opportunity to! Top this Brownie Pizza with whatever you like.
