Your Pie, Your Way!

One of the great things about pizza is that you can use just about anything you have on hand as a topping, making it your own personal yummy experiment. After making the pizza crust, garnish it with toppings that compliment your preferred diet or lifestyle. Take some inspiration from your restaurant-style favorites or get creative! We’ve also listed a few ideas here to help you save some time and make it easier to decide.

For a cheese lover’s pizza, top your crust with a mix of provolone, mozzarella, Cheddar and gorgonzola, or another type of blue cheese.

For a meat lover’s version, add bacon, ham or prosciutto, Italian sausage, chicken, pepperoni or salami.

If you prefer to keep things vegetarian, we recommend artichokes, black or green olives, garlic, tomatoes, green or red peppers, onions, pineapple, hot peppers, spinach and more!
