Unconventional Pizza Ideas
Tired of pepperoni? If our Chicken Alfredo Pizza has got you in the mood for more pizza toppings that are a little outside of the (pizza) box, here are three more unusual pizza ideas to try:
- Bacon and egg pizza. Whether you look at it as pizza for breakfast or a breakfast pizza, it’s delicious any time of the day.
- What about salad? When you know you need to get your greens, but you really want pizza, try a Greek salad pizza. Grab a base, drizzle with some olive oil and top with mozzarella, feta, arugula, Kalamata olives, red onion and tomatoes.
- For something sweet, try peaches. Fresh peaches are divine on pizza when combined with savory flavors. Try it with goat’s cheese, blue cheese, or ricotta, prosciutto and balsamic vinegar.
Pizza Base Alternatives
Whether you are gluten intolerant, looking to lighten your calorie load or just want to try something different, there are loads of pizza base alternatives to explore. For easy switch ups, you can try flatbread, pita bread, French bread or focaccia. Some healthy options you can make from scratch include cauliflower, quinoa, sweet potato, kale and broccoli, and lastly, if you want to switch out your base to whole vegetables, you can use portabella mushrooms, sliced eggplant or zucchini to make tasty mini pizzas.
