Whether you prefer your pizza thick or thin, simple or lavish, child-pleasing or a little more grown-up, we’ve got a recipe for you. And should you be wondering whether you truly need a pizza stone before you kick your takeout habit, we can answer that question for you, too.
New York Style Pizza
Simple. Modest. Perfectly proportioned. And just like you'll find in Manhattan. Swear. And a family project that's just time-consuming enough to distract but not so tedious as to deter.
We find this lovely, albeit subtly flavored, little number to be one of the simpler pleasures in life. We think you'll concur.
Potato Bacon Pizza
David Leite embraces his membership in the potato-loving freak camp and regales us with his latest obsession: potato bacon pizza.
Pepperoni Pan Pizza
Made with the simplest, freshest tomato sauce ever, two types of mozzarella, and everyone's favorite topping. And it's made on a plain old baking sheet. No fancy pizza stone required.
Mac and Cheese Pizza
Mac and cheese pizza? Yep. It's a thing. Sorta wondering why no one thought of it sooner.
Baked pizza crust with all the makings of a proper breakfast on top. Seems like a pretty darn good reason to get out of bed to us.
Broccoli Rabe Pizza
We're not saying broccoli rabe pizza is going to replace pepperoni. We're merely suggesting it may, under certain circumstances, be an awesomely viable alternative.
Rosemary Red Onion Pizza
Serve this red onion and rosemary pizza as an appetizer or in a buffet. Your guests will appreciate the easy to make homemade Italian pizza dough.
Mushroom Pizza with Ricotta
A pizza that takes white pizza up a level with several kinds of cheeses and mushrooms and a dough that’s a cinch to toss together.
Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza
Bacon cheeseburger pizza. Because sometimes, it's just too difficult to choose between a bacon cheeseburger and a pizza.
White Pizza with Salad
Classic white pizza meets a tangle of tender spring greens. This is sooooooooo our kinda spring detox!
Jim Lahey's Tomato Pizza ~ Pizza Marinara
One of the best red-sauced pizzas we've ever slung as well as one of the easiest. It just may ruin takeout pizza for you.
The traditional Italian approach to pizza is one of restraint. We, uh, sort of took a few liberties with that. Okay. A lot of liberties. We don't hear anyone complaining.
Grilled Pizza with Pepperoni and Mushrooms
Pizza, pizza. Here it's topped with mushrooms, pepperoni, and fresh mozzarella cheese then tossed on the grill—yes, the grill— until crisp.
Mushroom and Goat Cheese Pizza
Just when you thought there was nothing new in pizza, this thin-crusted beauty up levels your usual takeout with sous vide mushrooms, creamy goat cheese, and arugula.
Jim Lahey's White Pizza
A superlative—and unconventional—white pizza with a sheen of béchamel, a trio of cheeses, and a magnificently thin and boldly charred crust. So long, takeout.
Smoked Salmon Pizza with Red Onion
Wanna outclass every other appetizer you know how to make? Try this little number. Deceptively simple. Infallibly impressive.
Fig and Prosciutto Flatbread
An inspired melding of sweet figs, salt cured ham, and savory, tangy goat cheese atop crisp flat bread or pizza dough. We can think of nothing else we'd like more with a glass of wine.
