Tomato and Basil Pizza

Rating: 3.5 stars 65
Make this easy grilled pizza with a foolproof dough, simple tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella cheese, and basil. No grill? Simply cook the dough in a cast-iron skillet over high heat, or on a preheated sheet pan or pizza stone in a 500-degree oven.

Classic Margherita Pizza

An enduring Italian favorite, this simple pie needs nothing more than tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, Parmesan, and basil to shine.

Grilled-Asparagus, Tomato, and Fontina Pizzette

A quick turn on the grill gives homemade pizza dough a pillowy texture and an irresistible char. Here, the pie is topped with gooey fontina, flame-kissed asparagus and scallions, and fresh tomatoes and thyme.

Broccoli, Lemon, and Gouda Pizzas

Here, the classic white pie goes green in the most delicious way: charred broccoli florets and paper-thin slices of lemon meld with sharp gouda and nutty Parmesan cheeses to make this gourmet-level pizza at home. The pizza dough will need 1 to 2 hours to rise, so plan accordingly. Alternatively, you can make the dough the day before and let it rise overnight in the fridge. 

Grandma-Style Pizza

The thick, focaccia-like dough is a great blank canvas for mushrooms and pepperoni here but also works well with other toppings: Swap in crumbled raw sausage, partially cooked chopped bacon, anchovies, and sliced fresh vegetables like peppers, onions, and tomatoes.

Three-Cheese Pizza

Two kinds of mozzarella plus creamy fontina and a little fresh parsley top this cheesy grilled pizza. No grill? no problem. Cook this dough in a cast-iron skillet over high heat, or on a preheated sheet pan or pizza stone in a 500-degree oven.

Quick and Easy Pizza Dough

Making pizza dough from scratch is no doubt a labor of love—but that doesn't mean it can't be fast and easy too. Just 30 minutes after forming and resting the dough, you can use it as the base for this classic pie, or get creative and make something like this tri-color salad pizza or an antipasto-inspired slice.
