These cheeseburger calzones are EVERYTHING your favorite papa could dream of for Father's Day (unless he's vegetarian or gluten-free, of course): Tender pizza crust, juicy burgers, crunchy pickles, and melty cheese. Plus, encased in bready goodness, they're less messy than traditional burgers and ideal for dipping in a summery, Old Bay–spiked version of "special sauce."
Creative & Easy Kid-Friendly Pizza Recipes
Every kid is 100% percent different when it comes to eating habits. I know this all too well. However, homemade pizza tends to bring everyone to the table, even the pickiest humans, so you might find (as I have) that you've got a little extra wiggle room in terms of veggie toppings . . . as long as they're covered in cheese or other favorite ingredients.
On this page, you'll find my family's favorite kid-friendly pizza recipes, plus a few adventurous pies that can stretch your kids' palates when they're in the right kind of mood.
Remember: No-brainers like Hawaiian and salami and Margherita are all here for you, but don't be afraid to make something "weird," like grape and camembert or chicken, mushrooms, and sage—you never know!
I realize my I-just-had-a-baby card is due to expire (or may have already) . . . but bear with me as I pull it anyway, one last time. On Monday, just after the rain stopped, I wandered into the backyard to assess the garden situation. One word: Bleak. It seems that last spring and summer, in […]
Lately, most of my recipe ideas have sprung from remnants of the battle to get our son, Jack, to transition to solid foods. He's a little late to the game, now 11 months old, but he has good reason to be skeptical, having been diagnosed with "severe" reflux pretty much at birth, and needing an […]
Life has a nasty sense of humor sometimes. Like when you get all cozied up on the couch, wrap a blanket snug around your legs, and only then realize that the TV remote is across the room. Or like when the boiler poops out at bedtime on the first night of your husband's business trip […]
Last week, a very special delivery arrived at my doorstep: a Styrofoam cooler filled with products from Formaggio Cheese, a company owned by the patent holder for stuffed crust pizza. Judging by the fact that Anthony Mongiello, or the "Big Cheese," has owned the patent since 1987, I had no doubts that this guy was the […]
If all you get out of this post is that you should be grilling tomatoes, then my job here is done. (But, really, this super-easy grilled Margherita pizza is the stuff of late-summer-night dreams.)
This hearty Butternut Squash pizza is a meal in a slice. Enjoy it in the fall when winter squash is in season, or make it with roasted sweet potato all year long.
Need a crowd pleaser, and an (almost) guaranteed way to get your kids to eat their veggies? Look no further than Broccoli Cheddar Pizza, complete with a magic cheese sauce and just a hint of mustard for extra flavor. Broccoli with cheese sauce was the first recipe I learned outside of my mother's kitchen. I […]
If you like pizza and tacos, then you'll 100% LOVE this Mexican inspired beef taco pizza recipe.
This Chicago-style deep dish pizza is incredibly satisfying, stuffed with Italian sausage, green and red bell peppers, sweet onion, rich tomato sauce, and two different cheeses.
Thai Curry Pizza is a handheld version of one of the most popular Thai restaurant menu items — and it just happens to be vegetarian and dairy-free!
Don't be alarmed by the long ingredient list: This luscious Chicken Tikka Masala Pizza is simple to make and packed with flavor.
What could be better than regular mac and cheese, you ask? How about truffled mac and cheese pizza speckled with fresh chives?
This vegetarian chili pizza has it all — tender butternut squash, red bell pepper, and onion; lots of warming spices; corn and black beans; and a melty blanket of cheddar cheese. Top it with sliced scallions and a dollop of sour cream for the ultimate comfort food meal.
Garlic, mozzarella, ricotta, Parmesan, and broccoli tossed in a lemon vinaigrette. That's all this pizza is made of, and it's a fantastic way to celebrate early fall and the start of prime broccoli season . . . even if it's still 90 degrees outside.
Is there anything better than a BLT with heirloom tomatoes, bacon, mayo, and crisp butterhead lettuce? How 'bout a BLT pizza with zippy aioli sauce and melty slices of American cheese?
Just in time for the Fourth of July, I give you the quintessential, all-American hot dog pizza, complete with yellow mustard, sweet pickle relish, fresh tomato and onion, and gooey cheese sauce. In John's words, it's "the most audacious" pizza I've ever made, exploding with flavors that enhance—rather than overpower—the humble franks.
It's vegetables like snow peas that make me wish I'd coined the term "dirt candy" myself. When they first arrived at the Farmstand at the end of last week, along with sugar snap peas, another one of my favorites, I spent my whole shift sneaking one here, another there, until finally I fessed up and […]
Though this pizza may look plain, one bite will prove quite the opposite. The "sauce" is made by pureeing sweet potatoes and parsnips with mustard, honey, milk, salt, and pepper, and then stirring in some finely chopped sage. It's a little sweet and a little savory, and a good farmhouse Cheddar drives it home with […]
This pumpkin and sausage pizza captures the essence of Autumn with sage, pecorino cheese, and a touch of heat.
