Yes, we know pizza is heavenly as it is that you need not do anything to it to make it more special.
That said, if you are in for some experimentation, Doreen’s Pizza shares some creative ways to enjoy your favorite pizza:
Pizza Bread Cups
This one is perfect for breakfast. The pizza bread cups are made by forming the pizza dough into small balls.
They are then baked in mini muffin tins for about 15 minutes and brushed with olive oil and herbs.
They would be tasty to eat as they are or with some marinara sauce.
An excellent pizza treat will be to put some pizza toppings such as mushrooms, onions, and peppers on the pizza dough and bake it as per your regular pizza baking instructions.
Add some other breakfast favorites such as cheddar cheese, egg, and bacon strips (or ham, sausage, or bacon crumbles), and you have a wonderful breakfast.
French Bread Pizza
This one is quite popular as it is easy to prepare and takes quite a short while to bake, especially if you use a bread maker to prepare the dough and then use your conventional oven.
You’ll need French bread or any of your favorite bread, some herbs (oregano, basil, and thyme are good choices), and some tomato paste.
You’ll also need cheese, ham, chicken, and any vegetables you want to add.
Cut the bread in half, spread a layer of tomato paste over the bread, and then place the other ingredients on top and bake.
Lunch Box Pizza
This one is quite easy to prepare, and you can use either whole-wheat or white household bread to make it. It is excellent for the kids to pack in their lunch boxes for a change of taste and texture.
You will need pizza sauce, cheese, and any other ingredients you want to include, such as mushrooms, ham, chicken, olives, and so on.
Spread the sauce first on the bread and then add the other ingredients.
Cut into pieces and serve in your child’s lunch box.
Pizza Sandwich Pockets
With a little bit of creativity, you can turn a regular sandwich into a pizza sandwich pocket.
You will need pizza dough, tomato sauce, cheese, and any other ingredients you want.
Roll out the dough and then spread some sauce on it.
Then add the cheese and other ingredients.
Fold the dough and seal the edges to make a pocket.
Bake as per your regular pizza baking instructions.
This one is a no-cook pizza dip that you can make in just a few minutes with some pizza ingredients at home.
What you need is pizza sauce (including some herbs and anchovies), mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, and Italian herbs.
Dip the pepperoni into the pizza sauce and place it to the side.
Then add the mozzarella cheese and spread it evenly.
Sprinkle the Italian herbs on top and serve.
Who would have thought that there are different ways to enjoy pizza? Not that pizza ever needs reinventing because, really, it’s perfection in itself. However, if you are thinking of shaking things up a bit, perhaps for a party with your friends or family or to encourage your kids to eat what’s in their lunch boxes, you can try the ideas Doreen’s Pizza has shared you here.
