Reimagining Pizza

We know how everyone loves a great pizza. The saucy-crusty-cheesy-savoryness is a major hit every time, for almost everyone. But if you’re tired of the heavy cheese, typical toppings, or tomato sauce, we’d like to show you some alternatives, and take pizza to an art form.

Let’s talk sauce. You don’t strictly need it. You can swap out red tomato sauce with basil pesto, hummus, ricotta, or nothing at all! We like to take Trader Joe’s fresh whole wheat pizza dough and top it with a layer of hummus, big handfuls of arugula, shaved parmesan, a drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper. It’s the perfect pizza for a quick weeknight meal.

It’s a perfect opportunity to show off your creativity. Martha Stewart has grilled peaches, basil, and prosciutto. What an awesome flavor combination!

You don’t even need an oven. Take simple grilled pizza dough (Martha shows us how here) and top with anything you think of!

It could even be a great party idea. Let your guests choose from different sauces, different cheeses (including ricotta, Parmesan, manchego, marscapone, gruyere, or white cheddar, in addition to mozzarella), and all kinds of toppings. We think asparagus, bacon bits, fresh herbs, mushrooms, truffle oil, roasted potatoes, bell peppers, or whole cherry tomatoes could all be awesome. Offer traditional dough, whole wheat dough, and herbed dough. Add a few bottles of wine, some IPAs, and friends for a memorable evening!
