Win it Wednesday: National Pizza Month Giveaway from Classico

I'm resolute that October is the best month out of the year. It's when the leaves start to change, I can easily rationalize enjoying everything pumpkin flavored and Halloween is the best holiday all year long. Plus, my birthday is in October, so that helps seal the deal.

Now, it's official: October is my kind of month. It's National Pizza Month, ya'll! And pizza is only second to the burrito as the world's most perfect food. You can get all your food groups in there and there's a plethora of combinations, so it never gets old.

Classico contacted me to ask if I would be interested in celebrating the occasion by elevating the pizza party. Done and done. They provided me with a kit to help celebrate, but all the recipes and opinions are mine.

I make pizza pretty frequently, and here are my tactics for making it better at home.

1. Use homemade crust. I prefer this whole wheat recipe when I make it at home.
2. Make it flat. I toast Flatout wraps in the toaster oven, top them with the Classico fire sauce, olives, feta and spinach and it is so. good.
3. Grill it! We grill individual-sized pizzas during the summer to keep the heat outside.
4. Try different crust options. I love cauliflower crust pizza, but Tim isn't a fan, so I don't make it often. Or, for a healthy option, try my zucchini pizza boats recipe.

5. Fear no topping! The best item I ate in South Korea was a pizza featuring a sweet potato puree. It was heavenly. Barbecue chicken is always a smart move, and roasted vegetables class this joint up. I'm not above opening my fridge and throwing everything on board with the crust. Be bold!


Try something different! Even if doesn't turn out, you're still eating pizza, so that's pretty awesome.

If you'd like to try your hand at elevating the pizza, please let me be of assistance. I've got three VIP coupons for free jars of Classico® pizza sauce. To win, just post a comment about the best pizza you've ever had using Rafflecopter below. I want details! Three winners will be selected randomly on Nov. 7 and announced here.

My pizza crust recipe is tried and true, but I don't really paying attention to the sauce. Classico will be an upgrade!!!

Pizza is my jam! I love extra sauce and no cheese on all my pizzas - packed with as many veggies as possible, and pepperoni if I'm feeling extra hungry.

The best pizza I ever had was during my freshman year of college. One of the girls on my floor lived about an hour away from school and one night we went to her house for dinner. Her grandmother made us pesto pizza and it was delicious! At the time I had never had anything but traditional pizza sauce on my pizza. I do love "traditional" pizza, but I still remember that pesto pizza and make it from time to time.

There are so many great pizza purveyors in Chicago, especially for deep dish, of course. My favorite is from Bacino's, but I also love Lou Malnati's and Gino's East! I really enjoy homemade pizza with lots of veggies, too. Viva la pizza!

My favorite pizza of all time was a chili dog pizza with chili in place of sauce, with diced wieners, onions and cheese.
