Three Better-Than-Takeout Pizza Recipes

Tuesday, April 5th, 2016

Haeger Round Pizza StonePizza lovers, assemble! Today we celebrate Deep Dish Pizza Day, or what you may know as Chicago-style pizza. So pile high that pizza dough and fill it with your favorite toppings, or stick with your regular amount of crust and toppings and take part in this celebratory pizza day anyway!

Here are three recipes for pizza that you can make right at home, for better flavor and higher quality than takeout. And, if you want to make your pizza completely from scratch, here is our Whole Wheat Pizza Dough recipe. Bon Appetit!

Chicken & Garlic

For a warm buttery taste, our Chicken Garlic Pizza combines a variety of spices with chicken and vegetables on a ricotta cheese-based sauce. Use just our suggested toppings, or add some of your own for a delicious pizza that would taste great on a flat bread crust (or try it Chicago style for today).

Bruschetta

A pie-shaped twist on the infamous Italian Bruschetta, the Bruschetta Pizza is the perfect mix of oil, basil, tomatoes, garlic and more to whisk you away to Italy, even if it’s just for dinner. Serve with your favorite wine at a dinner party or just for the two of you.

Roasted Peppers & Artichokes

Our third recipe can be a healthier option if you opt for sodium-free sauce and reduced fat cheeses, and to top with chicken is up to you! The Roasted Pepper and Artichoke Pizza is almost irresistible and perfect for summer entertaining when you can grill the artichokes and peppers.
