Pear, Feta and Walnut Pizza

This Pear, Feta and Walnut Pizza is not your ordinary pizza.  The combination of sweet pears, tangy feta and toasty walnuts is out of this world delicious! Happy Friday, Friends! How has your week been? Mine's been crazy busy, but I did have the day off yesterday. I used the extra time to catch up on some housework and laundry (or at least try to), work on report cards, and take care of the kids of course! This weekend is going to be a full one, between the soccer field, finishing up report cards (next week is the last week of school – woo hoo!), and other miscellaneous kid and house stuff. What are your weekend plans? There are a few recipes that I make that I've been making ... [Continue Reading]

Potato, Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Pizza

Rosemary and garlic-roasted potatoes plus sweet caramelized onions top this Potato, Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Pizza. One more day until Pizza Friday! Is that a thing in your house? When I make my weekly menu plan, I always include a pizza night because it's an easy meal that I don't have to think much about. Most often, Friday is our pizza night, but not always. I like to be flexible and sometimes Saturdays call for pizza too. Or Mondays, right?  :) Our go-to pizza is a simple veggie and cheese pie, with bell peppers, mushrooms, olives, and red onion. Other times I like to mix things up and try something new. This Potato, Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Pizza was a new twist ... [Continue Reading]

Sweet Potato and Kale Pizza

Baked sweet potato rounds, crispy kale, and tangy goat cheese make this Sweet Potato and Kale Pizza totally crave-worthy. You guys. This pizza. It is sooo good. You don't believe me? Yes, it's covered in sweet potatoes and kale. But have you ever tried baked sweet potato rounds? How about baked kale chips? Roasted red onions? These are the things vegetable dreams are made of. (And no, I don't really dream about vegetables. At least not while I'm asleep.) Did I mention the goat cheese yet? Almost everything is better with goat cheese. ... [Continue Reading]

Grilled Zucchini Pizza with Ricotta

As someone who spends a lot of time cooking, baking, photographing food, and writing about food, I constantly have food-related ideas bouncing around in my head. You know you're a food blogger when... as you're standing at the kitchen sink washing dishes from the raspberry scones you just made (which just happen to be the fifth new recipe you've tried over the past three days), you ask your husband questions like, “Do you think that zucchini pizza would be good with pine nuts on it?” His reply? “Yes, I think that would be really good.” So the next time I make this pizza, I will definitely be tossing some pine nuts on top. I think the added crunch would be awesome, and if you try it, let me ... [Continue Reading]

BBQ Chicken Pizza

I've mentioned before that we make pizza at home about every other week. It's much healthier (especially with whole wheat crust) and more budget-friendly than ordering out. We've gotten pretty good at putting together a homemade pizza around here, and it really doesn't take long at all. Last time, I happened to have some BBQ sauce and Gouda cheese in the fridge that needed using up, as well as leftover grilled chicken from the previous night's dinner. While I hadn't had it on the meal plan, I think this BBQ chicken pizza was meant to be! If you haven't tried making your own pizza crust yet, don't be intimidated by the thought of it. It is so easy! I use my stand mixer and the dough comes ... [Continue Reading]

Pizza with Peaches, Basil, and Goat Cheese

This pizza came about when I had a peach that needed to be eaten on a night when homemade pizza was the dinner plan. I didn't have a specific recipe in mind and got to thinking that the peach might just work on the pizza. One of my favorite pizza recipes is this one with pear and gorgonzola, so I knew how delicious a fruit pizza could be. I added some goat cheese because I pretty much can't resist anything with goat cheese. A sprinkling of fresh basil after the pizza is baked brightens up the flavors.

Pizza with Portobellos, Spinach, and Goat Cheese

I'm always looking for new pizza recipes, as homemade pizza is such an easy and versatile meal, especially if you already have balls of pizza dough ready in your freezer. I love mushrooms on my pizza, but had never tried a recipe with portobello mushrooms. Lately I've also been loving the flavor that goat cheese brings to a dish, so when I saw this pizza with portobellos, spinach, and goat cheese, I immediately put it on our weekly menu. This pizza was delicious. It had tons of flavor from the portobellos, along with some garlic and goat cheese. The spinach is placed underneath the cheese, which I'd never done before but it worked so well. It didn't dry out the way that it can when it's ... [Continue Reading]

Pizza Sauce

While I've been making homemade pizzas for years, pizza sauce is something that I've never thought too much about. I used to buy pizza sauce at the store, but didn't like paying $4 for something that I only used a small amount of, and that wasn't that good to begin with. Recently I've just been using a can of plain tomato sauce as pizza sauce, topped with a sprinkling of Italian seasoning if I was feeling fancy. But now that I've tried this homemade pizza sauce, I'm sure that I'll be taking a few extra minutes to make my pizzas that much better. The sauce can be made ahead of time and refrigerated, saving you time when you're ready to assemble your pizza. This recipe makes more sauce than ... [Continue Reading]

Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

Homemade pizza is a meal that we make almost weekly in our house. Pizza is one of our favorite foods, and there are so many ways to top a pizza that it never gets old. And when you make your own pizza at home, it is both more economical and healthful than take-out. Homemade pizza dough is so easy to make, it's becoming harder and harder for me to justify ordering take-out. When making pizza dough, I alternate between this whole wheat version and this pizza dough, which is made with white bread flour. Both are equally delicious, and for variety's sake, it's nice to have two recipes to choose from. Both recipes make two balls of dough, which is enough for two medium pizzas. One pizza is ...
