It's a given that most people love pizza, but after years of eating it, you might be getting a little bored with your favorite toppings. Luckily, there are plenty of ideas that you may not have tried yet. Here are some unusual things you may want to try on your next pizza night; get a pre-made crust and get ready for something new.
Pizza from the Ocean
As a seafood fan, you might have been satisfied with anchovies on top of your pizza. You should also know that you can create an entire pizza inspired by the ocean. You can use marinara sauce on the crust, or you can make a buttery sauce with lemon juice and garlic. Toppings can include anchovies, but you can also chop up cooked shrimp, crab, lobster and crayfish. You might also use cooked mussels and clams separated from their shells. Try different combinations of seafood to see which you prefer. Then, add mozzarella cheese on top and warm the entire creation before serving.
The spices used in Middle Eastern cuisine can bring new flavors to pizza. You can start with a tahini paste base and cover the pizza with olives, cooked and chopped lamb meat, goat cheese or sun-dried tomatoes. Warm the entire pizza and serve it hot.
If your family enjoys chimichangas, enchiladas, tacos and burritos, perhaps a Mexican-style pizza is in order. Instead of marinara sauce on a pre-made crust, using bean paste may work well. Toppings can include pepper jack or cheddar cheese, ground chicken or beef, onions, and a bit of chili powder. Cook the pizza in your oven just as you would with a regular pizza.
A great dessert pizza can be the crowning touch of a pizza night, or you can make it any day of the week. Cream cheese and confectioners' sugar can be mixed together and spread onto a pre-cooked crust that has cooled, and then you can apply sweet toppings. Blueberries, pineapples, strawberries and other fruit can be cut up and arranged on the pizza in a decorative fashion. You might wish to top the entire thing with chocolate syrup or whipped cream.
The suggestions above can be made with the help of the whole family and will give you all the chance to experience pizza in a new way. If you don't feel like cooking, however, search for pizzerias in the area that offer unusual and different toppings to try.Share
