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.
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.
