Pizza

Pear, Walnut & Blue Cheese Puff Pastry Pizza

Pear, Walnut & Blue Cheese Puff Pastry Pizza

Puff pastry pizzas make a fabulous dinner or party appetizer, and it’s very low maintenance to make. The puff pastry makes such a flaky and buttery crust. Although you could do a variety of toppings (I think a caprese version with cherry tomatoes and basil would be perfect in the summer), this particular variety is perfect…

Hatch Chile Sauce Pizza with Grilled Steak and Caramelized Onions

Hatch Chile Sauce Pizza with Grilled Steak and Caramelized Onions

Replace your standard tomato sauce with pureed roasted Hatch chiles, and you get a slightly spicy and unique base for a pizza. We topped our pizza with pepper Jack cheese to give it a little extra kick, lots of fresh mozzarella (because fresh mozzarella makes all pizzas taste better), caramelized onions to add a hint…

Reuben Pizza

Reuben Pizza

We pretty much love reuben sandwiches and are always looking for new interpretations of a reuben (see here and here). So here is our latest version…a reuben made into a pizza! It has all of the elements of your favorite reuben sandwich on top of a pizza crust with a little bit of fresh mozzarella,…

Matzo Pizza

Matzo Pizza

Despite the fact that these pizzas are definitely not kosher thanks to the pepperoni, this was our way of celebrating the start of Passover…using a matzo as the crust for a pizza. We actually saw that one of the local pizza joints was serving matzo pizza, and even considered ordering it from there, but then…

Fennel Sausage Pizza

Fennel Sausage Pizza

As good as the Animal Style Cheeseburger Pizza was, it was not, however, our special Valentine’s pizza. For that evening, we went with something a little fancier feeling and more sophisticated in flavor (we did make double the amount of pizza dough when we made the cheeseburger pizza to cut down on our Valentine’s evening…

Animal Style Cheeseburger Pizza

Animal Style Cheeseburger Pizza

Dustin thinks we should take this idea to In-N-Out and try to sell it to them. I have to admit that after eating it, my ever-present craving for an In-N-Out Burger, Animal Style was completely gone because honestly, this was so much better. This pizza far exceeded my expectations, and this pizza was my idea. Basically this…

Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Why we have not yet incorporated our favorite buffalo chicken flavors into a pizza is beyond me. We made this pizza the other night when we watched the college football national championship game. Football food at its finest— hot sauce mixed with butter, chicken, blue cheese, onion (for some crunch instead of celery), as well…

Chimichurri & Flank Steak Pizza

Chimichurri & Flank Steak Pizza

I feel like it’s been forever since we posted a pizza, not since before we moved to California (unless you count this cauliflower crust one, which was good, but I wouldn’t consider it a true pizza). Dustin had this brilliant idea to use chimichurri as the sauce for a pizza, so we basically turned this…

Spicy Ranch Cauliflower Crust Pizza with Oven Roasted Corn + Goat Cheese

Spicy Ranch Cauliflower Crust Pizza with Oven Roasted Corn + Goat Cheese

Apparently more than half of the produce consumed in the United States is grown right here in California. As a result farmer’s markets here are a way of life. Farmer’s markets were popular in Washington, but don’t compare to the ones here. As previously mentioned there are multiple farmer’s market here, and they are a…

Preserved Lemon and Prosciutto Pizza

Preserved Lemon and Prosciutto Pizza

Dustin has declared this the best homemade pizza yet, a title previously held by this pizza. Note they both contained prosciutto. Maybe that’s a key ingredient. Actually, what was so awesome about this pizza is the preserved lemons we used as a topping. Yes, lemons on a pizza is weird. But deliciously weird. There’s an…
