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.
Grilled Vegetable Pizzas
These easy weeknight pies are full of surprises. Grill a bushel of produce—mushrooms, zucchini, red onion, and kale—and pile them onto rounds of store-bought flatbread. Sprinkle on blue cheese and mozzarella to bring a mix of funk and gooeyness. Then, since we've already bucked tradition, skip the marinara and drizzle your pizzas with a simple mustard vinaigrette instead. It offsets the rich cheeses and unites the vegetables into bites so satisfying, no one will notice you're having salad for dinner.
Classic Margherita Pizza
An enduring Italian favorite, this simple pie needs nothing more than tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, Parmesan, and basil to shine.
Roman-Style Thin-Crust Pizzas
Rolling out homemade pizza dough removes larger air pockets than if you stretch by hand; it ensures an evenly thin, crisp, almost cracker-like crust and makes an excellent white pizza. Schmear the dough with our quick and easy alfredo sauce, then try all of our delicious topping combinations.
Zucchini and Caramelized-Onion Pizza
Our Mediterranean-style vegetarian pizza jazzes up store-bought dough with caramelized onions, zucchini ribbons, feta, Kalamata olives, and fresh mint. Each slice strikes the perfect balance between sweet and salty.
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.
Pizza with a Sunny-Side-Up Egg and Herb Garden Pesto
This pesto pizza can also be served for breakfast.
Steak Pizza with Peppers and Onions
If you've ever craved pizza and a cheesesteak at the same time -- and who hasn't? -- you're in luck; this pizza incorporates the flavors of both for a hearty dinner the whole family will love.
