Asparagus Artichoke White Pizza

Asparagus Artichoke White Pizza by Alison's AllspiceI first decided to put asparagus on a pizza simply because I already had some in the fridge.  It was going to be a sun-dried tomato, artichoke, and asparagus pizza.   As life goes, that didn’t happen.  I ran out of sauce, so I ended up using my sun-dried tomatoes in my Asparagus Carbonara recipe.   I hit the drawing board again and decided to try the pizza with a simple white sauce.  This Asparagus Artichoke White Pizza is even better than I had imagined, and a great way to wrap up this years Asparagus Mini-Series!

Pizza Baked Potatoes

Pizza Baked Potatoes

I have a no waste attitude when it comes to food.  I hate throwing out even the littlest bit of food just because it doesn’t have a purpose, or because I think there isn’t enough left to use.  With a little bit of effort and planning you can prevent this kind of waste.  Today’s Pizza Baked Potatoes was created because I had a small amount of pasta sauce that was not going to go down the drain.  The recipe was so good that I made it multiple times and perfected the seasonings, and today I’m sharing it with you!

Cilantro Pesto Pizza

Cilantro Pesto Pizza

I didn’t use to like cilantro.  In every bite of a dish utilizing cilantro, all I could ever taste was the cilantro.  It was too strong for me, and still is if I don’t cut up the leaves into tiny little pieces.  I learned to start to like cilantro when I was introduced to the Tandori Naan Pizza’s cilantro pesto pizza with tomatoes.  This recipe is a mimic of that frozen pizza.  I don’t make it on naan bread, and I don’t always add tomatoes, but this recipe still has the punch of flavor that I loved from the frozen pizza!

Cracker Crust Pizza

Hello Friends!  This is another recipe fantastic for football season!  Some thin crust pizzas lack in crust texture. You get a slice and it flops in your hand.  The flavor is all there, but that’s just because you have a delivery service for ooey-gooey cheese.  This pizza crust is thin and crispy, the best of both worlds!

Chicago-Style Deep Dish Pizza

Pizza is an absolute favorite around here, and this pizza explodes with flavor!  We eat this pizza as a once-in-a-while treat because it is definitely a splurge.  A must try if you are a pizza fan, however.  A Chicago-style pizza has the cheese on the bottom and the sauce on the top because it has a long baking time and the sauce on the top prevents the cheese from burning. This layering method works wonders for the flavor as well.   The diced tomato sauce roasts on the top of the pizza, melting the cheese into a gooey center, all held together with a thick crust.  I’m getting hungry just writing about it!
