10 Amazing Homemade Pizza Recipes

From classic margherita to grilled fennel flatbread, these recipes will take pizza night to the next level.

  • Jim Lahey's No-Knead Pizza Dough + Margherita Pie. Jim Lahey’s version of the margherita classic transports us to Italy with Roma tomatoes, blocks of fresh mozzarella, and extra-virgin olive oil. Why buy the plane ticket when you can make this?
  • Asparagus and Arugula Pizza with Vegan Pesto. Bursting with the flavors of zesty arugula, lemony basil, and grassy asparagus, this pizza’s as fresh and light as can be and the epitome of a spring.
  • Leek, Bacon, and Goat Cheese Pizza. Bacon, goat cheese, and leeks balance each other in an impressively loaded pizza, fit to challenge any pie you can buy.
  • Meyer Lemon Foccacia. If you’re looking for a sweeter pizza night, let us steer you towards this gorgeous, tart, salty, and addictive flatbread.
  • Una Pizza Rustica e Autentica for Sophia Loren. A crisp-crusted pie (complete with authentically charred bubbles), topped with smears of buffalo mozzarella, aromatic scraps of torn basil and a kicky, bright tomato sauce.
  • Broccoli Rabe, Potato, and Rosemary Pizza. With an olive oil infused crust and broccoli rabe rid of any bitterness, this is simply one of the best white pizzas we've ever tasted.
  • Pantry Pissaladière.  Caramelized onions, sprinkled olives, and a touch of thyme blend for an unforgettable and untraditional pizza experience.
  • Grilled Fennel Flatbread with Olives and Sultanas.  We love the way the sultanas are worked into the olive spread and the topping itself, so that each bite guarantees a hint of sweetness. The creaminess of the feta and the crunch from the fennel give this flatbread a great texture—and make it fun to eat.
  • Cacio e Pepe Pizza with Roasted Radishes. The textural contrast of salty cheese, tender radishes, and crusty bread make this pizza irresistible.
  • Socca (Farinata). This unconventional pancake-like canvas is the perfect foundation for  toppings of all kinds.
