Zucchini, Mushroom, Pepper, Spinach Pizza

Ingredients

  • Zucchini
  • Sauteed mushrooms
  • Baby bell peppers
  • Baby spinach
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Marinara sauce

Notes: I made this pizza for my Aunt Bev when she was visiting from Australia. She wanted a healthy pizza and that’s just what she got. It was light, summery, and fresh.

Squash Parmesan Pizza

Squash Parmesan Pizza

Ingredients

  • Breaded yellow squash (egg, bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper)
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Homemade pizza sauce
  • Homemade pizza dough

Notes: Throughout my pizza adventures I’ve tried chicken parmesan and eggplant parmesan as pizza toppings. I prepared this pizza the same way. First, I cut the squash into bite sized pieces. Next I dipped the pieces in an egg wash, then in bread crumbs mixed with parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. I then baked the squash until it became crispy on both sides. I pre-baked the dough, spread on a thin layer of pizza sauce, sprinkled on mozzarella cheese and added the squash parmesan.

  • Diced hot pepper
  • Sun-dried tomatoes
  • Garlic marinated grilled chicken
  • Mozzarella and cheddar cheeses

Notes: I make more pizzas than I have time to blog about. In fact, I made this pizza in the fall of 2011 with a mole pepper from The Good Food Collective and a hot pepper form our neighbors garden.

BBQ Rib Pizza Recipe

BBQ Rib Pizza

Ingredients:

  • Grilled baby back ribs, chopped into small pieces
  • BBQ sauce
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Homemade pizza dough

Note: I love when I can use leftovers to make an awesome pizza (see my Thanksgiving Pizza recipe from last year). For this pizza, I broiled, then grilled the ribs with BBQ sauce. The ribs were delicious on their own, but on a pizza with cheddar cheese… amazing!

Breakfast Pizza Recipe

Breakfast Pizza

Ingredients:

  • Scrambled eggs
  • Breakfast sausage, chopped
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Stonewall Kitchen Maine Maple Glaze
  • Homemade pizza dough

Notes: My first attempt at breakfast pizza back in 2010 was good, but it was missing something. Tonight I figured it out. Sauce. The Maine Maple Glaze I used on a previous pizza with pork was the perfect sauce for breakfast pizza. The sweet glaze complimented the savory eggs, sausage, and cheese. This pizza was awesome!

Maple Glazed Pork Pizza

Maple Glazed Pork Pizza

Ingredients:

  • Grilled, pulled pork chop
  • Sliced sweet peppers
  • Stonewall Kitchen Maine Maple Glaze
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Homemade pizza dough

Note: I pulled the grilled pork chop with a fork and then tossed it in about a tablespoon of the maple glaze. After pre-baking the dough, I spread on a very thin layer of the maple glaze, then added the rest of the toppings. My maple glazed pork pizza was subtly sweet and was perfect way to end a cool autumn day.
