The best thing about pizza is they are so versatile, you can put any ingredient you like on them. And eat them at any time of day. No really – just you wait and see! If you need any ideas for a classic pizza or you’re tempted to try something a little more unusual, check out our list of pizza toppings you can try at home.
The classic Margherita pizza
Pizza aficionados have an affiliation with the classic Margherita for its simplicity and unmatched combination of crushed tomatoes and melted mozzarella cheese lightly sprinkled with oregano. Purists say that is all the ingredients you need on a pizza – any other topping ruins the taste.
Roasted pepper pizzas
You can still keep your pizza simple by added just the one ingredient. It can be anything you like although veg is the healthy option. We’re particularly fond of finely sliced roasted peppers and a sprinkling of ground pepper adds a nice finishing touch.
The Italian classic - four seasons pizza delivers a quarter slice of tasty goodness in each corner. If you like variety in your meal, this is the pizza for you. All you need is black olives, artichoke hearts, ham pieces, sautéed mushrooms and voila.
New York style pizzas
The New York style pizza may not have the original Neapolitan wood-oven taste, but garnished with pecorino, dried oregano and a generous helping of mozzarella, they pack a mouth-bursting punch of flavor. Now you can rival Papa Johns in your own kitchen.
Bland vegetables can be radically saved when you throw them on pizza dough and whack them in the oven. A combination of zucchini, broccoli and caramelized onions are not only transformed into a delicious, hearty meal, and provide a health kick to your pizza most other toppings don’t give you.
Italian Sausage and Raddichio
If you fancy a change to the usual meat toppings of stereotypical pizzas, give Italian sausage a try. Cut into chunky pieces and blended with raddichio or kale, you can transform a pizza into an exotic meal that will attract attention the next time you invite guests round for pizza party.
Pesto and goats cheese
Just the mention of pesto and goats cheese can raise a few eyebrows and a look of disgust. But these people have never tried the combination on a pizza. Top it off with basil leafs and a drizzle of olive oil and you get a rich and creamy pizza with a touch of class.
Yes, you have read that right. Pizza for breakfast. As an alternative to a greasy fry-up, why not throw your fried eggs, bacon and sausage on a pizza, smother it with tomato puree and a good helping of Parmesan cheese. Not only is it a tasty treat first thing, but it sets you up for the day.
Of course, if you don’t have the time to make pizzas at home, you can always use our discount vouchers and order takeaway or eat-in at Papa Johns.
