Pizza is one of the most popular dishes on the planet since more than five billion of them are sold each year throughout the world. Though you can pick up your phone and order, making pizza at home is easier and more inexpensive than you think, especially using my recipe for the best crust. Therefore, here are pizza ideas for eight different pizzas using my homemade dough.
The first of these pizza topping ideas is for an Irish pizza. Take one small diced onion and some shredded cabbage and start browning in your skillet in butter or olive oil until golden brown first. Brush the unbaked pizza crust with some olive oil first before starting the baking process. Add the browned vegetables during the last five minutes of baking.
Spanish pizza is something else that is quite delicious by adding some cooked link sausage, lightly browned green or red pepper strips, a can of minced clams, sliced stuffed olives before sprinkling some crushed red pepper over the baking olive oiled brushed crust that last five minutes as well.
To make a Jamaican pizza, what I do is add some crispy bacon, sauteed green pepper strips, onion rings, and some canned kidney beans to that brushed crust before finishing that last five minutes of baking time.
If you want to treat your taste buds, you need to try my Bavarian pizza with sauerkraut, caraway seeds, sausage, and lots of fried onions before topping with cheese.
My Mediterranean tuna pizza features tuna, mayonnaise, two cheeses, herbs, and just a little of crushed tomato.
Sometimes, I like to make a Mexican inspired pizza by browning about a half of a pound of ground turkey or beef and a teaspoon of chili powder to a basic pizza sauce. Afterwards, I put on some grated Cheddar cheese, crumbled corn chips, green pepper slices, and a few jarred or pickled and sliced hot peppers during that last five minute baking time.
Island inspired Hawaiian pizza is another of these pizza topping ideas that can give you more variety and enjoyment from typical pizza. I finished my crust with some chopped ham or Spam, and chopped green pepper strips that I brown first before adding a small can of pineapple chunks before placing on the baking treated crust during that last five minutes.
Another suggestion for changing up your typical pizza comes in handy when you have some ground beef leftovers. Instead of wondering what else to make, try layering them over your pizza sauce before topping with a different cheese such as Cheddar.
If you haven’t tried making your own pizza at home, I really hope that you try my recipe and these pizza ideas for more ways to keep enjoying it while saving money on your food budget!
