Upgrade Your Pizza Night
Pizza night should be fun...and flavorful! It's easy to get stuck in a rut when it comes to picking and choosing what type of pizza to make, especially when the basics (we're talking a simple cheese and pepperoni, or margherita) are just too good. But, it's time to start thinking outside the box...or should we say outside the pizza box... We've gathered 5 pizza recipes that are just unique and tasty enough to take your pizza night to a new and exciting level!
Sausage and Swiss Chard Pizza
Crispy swiss chard, perfectly salty sausage, and rich ricotta make this pizza one of our new favorites! It has a perfect balance of flavors and textures, plus as an added bonus you're sneaking your daily greens in...what's not to love!
Sweet & Spicy Soppressata and Fennel Pizza
If you're unfamiliar with soporessata, it is an Italian dry-cured pork salami. On the fence about putting it on your pizza? Don't be! We're telling you it is out of this world delicious and a great substitute for pepperoni or sausage. This Sweet & Spicy Soppressata and Fennel pizza makes use of two kinds of soppressata, a great balance of sweet and spicy. Add some fennel for texture and a little complimentary flavor and you've got the perfect pie!
Roasted Vegetable Pizza
Boy do we love sausage, pepperoni and prosciutto, but sometimes it's nice taking a break from meat-centric pizzas and enjoying something a little lighter. This roasted vegetable pizza is perfect for vegetarians, Meatless Monday's, or even if you're just in the mood for pizza but you want to try to keep things a little healthier! Made with mushrooms, fresh bell peppers, zucchini and tied together with Pasta Jay's Classic Marinara, this vegetable pizza is sure to become a new pizza night favorite!
Fig and Prosciutto Pizza
We'd say this Prosciutto and Pear Pizza is about as gourmet as gourmet pizza can get! Packed full of sweet figs, salty prosciutto, fresh arugula, rich fontina and topped with a tangy balsamic glaze your tastebuds will feel like they've died and gone to flavor heaven! For bonus points: serve with a chilled glass of white wine...you can thank us later.
Shrimp Fra Diavolo Pizza
Seafood on pizza can go two ways. It can either be amazingly delicious...or not so great. Naturally, like most, we were a little skeptical at the idea of taking a classic Italian seafood dish like Shrimp Fra Diavolo and sticking it on a pizza, but let us be the first to say—this pizza is unlike anything you've ever had before! It's spicy, fresh, full of flavor and will leave you craving it days after you've finished the last bite.
