We’ve made just about every pizza recipe, from classic Pizza Margherita to fusions style taco pizza. But here’s a new-to-us pizza that instantly jumped to the top of our list: this 3 Cheese Shrimp Pizza! Shrimp on a pizza isn’t what might first jump to mind. But let me tell you: it’s a must try! The garlicky, buttery shrimp against creamy ricotta cheese is one of the best pizza topping combinations we’ve had in a while. It’s so satisfying, you’ll be hooked. It’s like shrimp alfredo on a pizza crust instead of noodles…which is just as good as it sounds.

How to make the best shrimp pizza (basic method)

Shrimp on pizza isn’t usually our first choice. But after eating an incredible seafood pizza at one of our favorite pizza joints in town, we knew we had to try it! Our version isn’t much like theirs (so you’ll have to go try it!). But what it does have in common: juicy, buttery garlicky shrimp! Here’s what to do to make the best shrimp pizza recipe:

  • Saute the shrimp with garlic and butter. Get that shrimp perfectly sauteed before you use it as a pizza topping! Use the instructions below or our sauteed shrimp recipe.
  • Spread seasoned ricotta on the dough. There’s no need to make an alfredo sauce: just spread lightly seasoned ricotta straight onto the dough.
  • Top with mozzarella and Parmesan and bake! All you need is 5 to 7 minutes in a super hot oven. It’s best if you have a pizza stone! Speaking of…
Saute pan with shrimp

Use a pizza stone if you can!

This shrimp pizza is best if you bake it on a pizza stone. Why? A pizza stone makes the absolute perfect crust texture! Here’s what to know:

  • Pizza stone: A pizza stone is what makes Italian pizza crust crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Here’s the best pizza stone we’ve found, plus care tips.
  • Pizza peel: Use a pizza peel to transfer the pizza onto the hot pizza stone in the oven. We recommend this Standard pizza peel or this Conveyor pizza peel.

Don’t have a pizza stone? That’s ok too! You can make your pizza right on a baking sheet.

Homemade pizza dough is best, or use these shortcuts!

In our professional opinion: it’s always worth it to make homemade pizza dough! The result is far, far better than what you can buy at the store. But of course: there’s not always time for that! We get it. Here are a few options for the dough for this shrimp pizza recipe:

  • Master pizza dough! This Best Pizza Dough has the absolute perfect flavor and texture. It is sublime. This one takes 15 minutes to make and 45 minutes to proof before baking.
  • Thin crust. Try this Thin Crust Pizza Dough! It’s easy to roll out into a thinner, crispier crust.
  • Pan pizza. Or, make it as a pan pizza in a cast iron skillet! This option takes a little longer but it’s easier to pull off.
  • Naan or flatbread pizza. Want to shortcut the process altogether? Try Naan Pizza or Flatbread Pizza.
  • Store-bought pizza dough. We do it in a pinch, too! Find a good quality brand (experiment to find your favorite).

The shrimp to buy for shrimp pizza

There are lots of options at the store when it comes to shrimp! It doesn’t matter if you accidentally grab the wrong one for this recipe: pizza is very forgiving! But here are a few things to look for:

  • Find medium shrimp. Medium is nice for a pizza topping: it’s also labeled as 41 to 50 count. You could also use small shrimp.
  • Use peeled shrimp. Often we recommend tail on, but you don’t want that for pizza! If you buy the wrong kind, just remove the shell before cooking.
  • Fresh or frozen. Both are essentially the same freshness because most shrimp are immediately flash frozen. Just make sure to thaw the shrimp in advance.
  • Wild caught. Look for wild caught: it’s the most sustainable!

Description

This shrimp pizza recipe is full of big flavor, starring buttery shrimp and 3 cheeses! It’s garlicky, creamy, and a total crowd pleaser.


Ingredients

  • 1 ball Best Pizza Dough (or Thin Crust Dough)
  • 1/2 pound medium shrimp, deveined and peeled
  • 1/4 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup whole milk ricotta cheese
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Chopped parsley for garnish

Instructions

  1. Make the pizza dough: Follow the Best Pizza Dough or Thin Crust Dough recipe to prepare the dough. (This takes about 15 minutes to make and 45 minutes to rest.)
  2. Place a pizza stone in the oven and preheat to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. (If you don’t have a pizza stone, you can make the pizza on a baking sheet.)
  3. Prepare the toppings: If frozen, thaw the shrimp in advance. Mince the garlic. Pat the shrimp dry. In a medium bowl, mix the shrimp with the minced garlic and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt. In a medium skillet, heat the butter on medium high heat. Cook the shrimp for 1 to 2 minutes per side until opaque and cooked through, turning them with tongs. When done, transfer the shrimp to a bowl.
  4. In a small bowl, mix the ricotta with the 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt and fresh ground pepper.
  5. Bake the pizza: When the oven is ready, dust a pizza peel with cornmeal or semolina flour. (If you don’t have a pizza peel, you can use a rimless baking sheet or the back of a rimmed baking sheet. But a pizza peel is well worth the investment!) Stretch the dough into a circle; see How to Stretch Pizza Dough for instructions. Then gently place the dough onto the pizza peel.
  6. Spread the seasoned ricotta onto the dough then 1/4 cup of the mozzarella cheese. Add the shrimp, reserving the butter at the bottom of the bowl. Top with the remaining 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese. Add a sprinkle of the reserved butter (use about half). 
  7. Use the pizza peel to carefully transfer the pizza onto the preheated pizza stone. Bake the pizza until the cheese and crust are nicely browned, about 5 to 7 minutes in the oven (or 1 minute in a pizza oven).
  8. Top with the chopped parsley. Slice into pieces and serve immediately (cutting it with a knife is easiest to cut through the shrimp).

Pizza soup

With our affinity for artisan pizza recipes, I’m surprised it’s taken us this long to think this idea. Pizza soup! Because who wouldn’t want all the flavors of a supreme pizza wrapped up in a cozy bowl? The broth is flavored with pizza sauce, tomatoes, and a little Parmesan to make it creamy. The toppings are swimming along inside: bell peppers, garlic and mushrooms, making for a savory pop that surprises you in every bite. Serve with garlic toast, grilled cheese or simply crusty bread and it’s a meal you’ll want to make over and over…and over. (We already have.)

Ingredients in pizza soup

This pizza soup was only a matter of time. Alex and I have been enamored with making artisan-style pizza since our honeymoon to Italy years ago. We’ve spent a decade researching pizza dough recipes and learning from professionals, and you’ll see that culmination in our next level Margherita Pizza. So what better challenge than to take all that know how and distill it down into a…soup?

This pizza soup is for when you want the experience of pizza, but none of the hassle. The broth tastes so spot on that after a spoonful you’ll exclaim, “That tastes just like pizza!” (Promise. We did.) Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make it:

  • Pizza sauce
  • Canned crushed tomatoes (fire roasted if possible)
  • Vegetable broth
  • Olive oil
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Red onion, garlic, bell pepper, mushroom
  • Dried oregano and fennel seeds
Pizza soup

Find your favorite pizza sauce or make homemade

Part of the pizza flavor in this recipe comes from…pizza sauce! There are lots of great all natural pizza sauces out there these days. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Grab a high quality jar of pizza sauce, organic if possible. Check the ingredients on the back to make sure there’s not too much added sugar or preservatives.
  • Or, make homemade! You can also make your own pizza sauce. Our Easy Pizza Sauce takes just 5 minutes in a blender. It’s sensational.

Fire roasted tomatoes add complexity

Here’s another tip for the best flavor in this pizza soup. Use fire roasted canned tomatoes! Fire roasted tomatoes are canned tomatoes that have been roasted over an open flame. It lightly chars the outsides and makes the flavor sweet right out of the can unlike most canned tomatoes.

Fire roasted tomatoes are sold by several different brands, and have become popular in grocery stores here in the US. If you can’t find them, you can substitute any high quality tomatoes you can find.

Pizza soup recipe

Fennel seeds add meaty flavor

Lastly: don’t be tempted to leave out the fennel seeds! Fennel is a vegetable that’s used in recipes raw or as dried seeds. You should be able to find them in the spice aisle in your grocery. Why is fennel seed so important? Well, it’s a spice that’s used in sausage, so it makes your brain think of meat. It adds as meaty, savory flavor to this soup that cannot be replicated!

Pizza soup variation: add mix-in ingredients!

Want to add more “toppings” to this pizza soup? It’s easy to add more vegetables to make this soup even more filling or to add protein. Here are some more ideas:

  • White beans (to add plant-based protein)
  • Spinach
  • Chopped pepperoni
  • Sliced black olives

What else would you add to this pizza soup?

Easy garlic bread
Go for garlic bread, grilled cheese or cheese toast

This may look just the teensiest boring but I promise it is NOT. If you’re anything like me and craving some “regular” dinner flavors right now, make this salad. You will not regret it! 

toasted sourdough bread cubes

Do you ever just CRAVE a caesar salad? It’s one of the few salads that I actually crave, and that’s saying something because it’s rather simple. It’s no secret that I love a seriously trashed up salad. But I often just crave the crisp refreshing simplicity of a plain caesar.

No chicken. No salmon. Nothing! 

Just romaine tossed in a delicious caesar dressing with parmesan shavings and croutons.

That’s where this baby comes in.

chopped romaine lettuce

Hello pizza croutons! I mean, I cannot get enough.

The pizza croutons start with sourdough cubes that are seasoned with basil and garlic and toasted until golden. Then, they are drizzled with tomato sauce and asiago cheese, plus maybe a sprinkling of parmesan. They go back into the oven until warm and melty. 

And then they find their way to the top of your caesar!

toasty pizza croutons

Unless they find their way into your mouth first.

It’s possible.

In fact, it’s very IMpossible to not eat these right off the baking sheet. They are freaking good.

romaine lettuce with caesar dressing

I’ve done plenty of kale caesars here on the blog. And many times, I prefer a kale caesar. It depends on my mood. Eddie LOVES a kale caesar. I rotate between caesars at home and my house salad. And even though we haven’t eaten in a restaurant for nine months now (what!), we almost always start with a caesar salad or split one. We’re just a little obsessed. 

caesar salad with pizza croutons

So for this one, I stay classic with romaine hearts. They are great for a salad like this because the leaves are hearty enough to hold up to the dressing, but crisp and refreshing enough to give you exactly the kind of bite you crave.

caesar salad with pizza croutons

And speaking of the dressing! This is my longtime caesar dressing that I’ve shared on the blog many times before. I like to make it with greek yogurt and the key ingredient is anchovy paste. I highly suggest not leaving it out, because it really adds a ton of flavor and especially delivers on that classic caesar taste. Plus, you don’t have to chop up the actual anchovies. It’s just the paste. 

This salad is perfect for nights when you aren’t that hungry or just want a light meal. The pizza croutons add an incredible element to the salad. They make it more flavorful and more satisfying – and honestly, just more fun!

Ingredients

pizza croutons

  • 3 cups sourdough bread cubes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • ¼ cup marinara sauce
  • ¼ cup freshly grated asiago cheese
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated parmesan cheese

caesar salad

  • 3 hearts of romaine, washed and chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon anchovy paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • shaved parmesan, for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the bread cubes on a baking sheet. Drizzle with the olive oil and toss. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper, the garlic powder and basil. Bake the cubes for 10 to 12 minutes, until slightly golden.
  • Remove the baking sheet and top each cube with a dollop of marinara sauce. Sprinkle the asiago cheese on top (don’t worry if it gets on the baking sheet too - it gets crispy and amazing!) along with the parmesan. Return the sheet to the oven and bake for 4 to 5 minutes more, until warmed through and the cheese is melted.
  • I make the caesar dressing while the bread cubes are toasting. To make the dressing, add the garlic, yogurt, parmesan, mustard, vinegar, anchovy paste, lemon juice, salt and pepper to a food processor and blend until pureed. With the processor still on, stream in the olive oil until a creamy dressing forms. (This may make more dressing than needed, but you can store it sealed in the fridge for about 3-4 days and stir well before using.)
  • Chop the romaine hearts and place them in a bowl. Toss with a pinch of salt and pepper. Add in a few tablespoons of the dressing and toss the romaine with kitchen tongs, until the dressing is evenly dispersed. Top with a few shavings of parmesan cheese. Top with the pizza croutons. Serve immediately with extra dressing for serving.

Burrata pizza

Are you ready for this? Rich and creamy burrata cheese is one of life’s greatest pleasures. (At least, in our opinion!) So why not put it on a pizza? Here’s the ultimate burrata pizza recipe: a traditional Margherita pizza with gooey burrata cheese on top. It tastes like the best pizza you’ve had: but at least 10 times better. Alex and I have been perfecting the art of the artisan Naples-style pizza for over ten years, and this one is a new favorite. Here are a few tricks for how to make the best burrata pizza!

What is burrata, exactly?

Burrata is an Italian fresh mozzarella cheese with a surprise inside: the center is filled with cream! The creamy interior also contains cheese shreds, called straciatella. Cut into the ball and the creamy cheese comes spilling out. This cheese originated in Southern Italy; now it’s served all over the country and world. Alex and I first tried it on our honeymoon in Italy and have been huge fans ever since.

Burrata is higher in fat content than normal mozzarella and most other cheeses because of its creamy center. In fact, the word burrata comes from the Italian word burro, which means butter: referring to the buttery texture of this fancy cheese.

Burrata pizza

The tricks to how to make burrata pizza

Here’s the thing. Burrata has a lot of liquid inside. When you add burrata cheese to a pizza, you run the risk of it turning into a watery mess. There are a few different methods people use for adding burrata to pizza: some put it in dollops right onto the crust. Others place the whole ball of burrata on top of the pizza after baking, and cutting it distributes the cheese all over the pizza. Here’s the trick to how to make this burrata pizza (which we think is pretty perfect):

  • Cook the pizza with shredded mozzarella cheese first. This gets the crust browned and a base layer of cheese melted. If you put the burrata on in the beginning, it would become too watery by the end of the cook time.
  • Add torn pieces of burrata in the last 3 minutes. Yes, you’ll actually pull the pizza out of the oven, add the burrata chunks, and then bake it again. You’ll pull it out just when the burrata melts into a gooey uniform layer!

A 5 minute pizza sauce that tastes like Italy

The best way to make this burrata pizza taste like Italy: make our Easy Pizza Sauce and Pizza Dough! This pizza sauce is one of our favorite recipes on this website. Every time we make it, it amazes us. Here are the secrets to this sauce:

  • Use fire roasted tomatoes. These tomatoes are roasted, so their flavor is sweeter and more developed right out of the can. If you can’t find them, use the best quality tomatoes you can find.
  • Whiz them in a blender with garlic, olive oil and spices. All you need to do is give the ingredients a quick spin in the blender and it’s done. Give it a taste, and you’ll melt.
Pizza sauce

Homemade pizza dough is always worth it

The other key to burrata pizza is the pizza dough! These recipes are ones we’ve honed over years and years to make sure they have the best texture and flavor. Here are the options, in order of preference:

  • Master pizza dough! This Best Pizza Dough has the absolute perfect flavor and texture. We recommend trying this one at least once in your life. It is sublime.
  • Thin crust. Try this Thin Crust Pizza Dough! It’s easy to roll out into a thinner, crispier crust.
  • Pan pizza. An American style option: make it as a pan pizza in a cast iron skillet! It takes a little longer, but it’s an easier method.
  • Naan or flatbread pizza. For easy weeknight pizza! Try Naan Pizza or Flatbread Pizza.
Burrata pizza

A pizza stone makes the best burrata pizza

The master pizza dough or thin crust dough taste best if you cook them on a pizza stone. If you want authentic-style Italian pizza, this is your best bet. Why?

  • Pizza stone: A pizza stone is what makes Italian pizza crust crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Here’s the best pizza stone we’ve found, plus care tips.
  • Pizza peel: Use a pizza peel to transfer the pizza onto the hot pizza stone in the oven. We recommend this Standard pizza peel or this Conveyor pizza peel.

And that’s it! All of our tips for making the best burrata pizza…ever. If you’re a pizza connoisseur, you can also use a pizza oven: head to our Pizza Oven post. This is how you get the beautifully charred crust. But full disclosure: we recently learned a trick where you can ditch the pizza oven. Make the pizza in your standard oven, then use a blow torch to char the crust and a bit of the cheese! That’s what we used here, and it worked like a charm.

Ingredients


Instructions

  1. Make the pizza dough: Follow the Best Pizza Dough or Thin Crust Pizza Dough recipe to prepare the dough. (This takes about 15 minutes to make and 45 minutes to rest.)
  2. Place a pizza stone in the oven and preheat to 500°F. OR preheat your pizza oven (here’s the pizza oven we use).
  3. Make the pizza sauce: Make the Easy Pizza Sauce recipe. (You’ll use about 1/3 cup for the pizza; reserve the remaining sauce and refrigerate for up to 1 week.)
  4. Bake the pizza: When the oven is ready, dust a pizza peel with cornmeal or semolina flour. (If you don’t have a pizza peel, you can use a rimless baking sheet or the back of a rimmed baking sheet. But a pizza peel is well worth the investment!) Stretch the dough into a circle; see How to Stretch Pizza Dough for instructions. Then gently place the dough onto the pizza peel. 
  5. Spread a thin layer of the pizza sauce over the dough, using about 1/4 to 1/3 cup. Add the shredded mozzarella cheese. Top with a thin layer of fresh grated Parmesan cheese and a few pinches of kosher salt.

  7. Add the burrata cheese: Use the pizza peel to pull the pizza out of the oven. Working quickly, spread the burrata chunks evenly over the dough. Place it back in the oven and cook 3 to 5 minutes until the cheese is melted. 
  8. Allow the pizza to cool for a minute before adding the basil on top (whole leaves, lightly torn, or thinly sliced). Slice into pieces and serve immediately.

How to make a jalapeno pizza

You could call this jalapeno pizza a green pizza…because it’s topped with bright green salsa verde! Forget the typical tomato-based pizza sauce here, or even a white sauce. The bright flavor of the salsa is the perfect pairing for the spicy jalapeno. Here are the basic steps to make it (or go right to the recipe):

  • Make the pizza dough. See below. Or, you can also do a “cheater” pizza by using this as a topping for Naan Pizza or Flatbread Pizza!
  • Saute the zucchini. All you need is 1/2 cup sliced zucchini. Saute it up in a small skillet: it takes just 5 minutes because of the small quantity.
  • Slice the jalapeno pepper. Make sure to protect your hands from the spicy juices! Wash your hands thoroughly after cutting.
  • Slice the corn off of the cob. Here’s our secret method for how to cut corn without spraying it all over your kitchen.
  • Top that pie and bake! Load everything on with mozzarella and feta cheese and bake for 5 minutes until the cheese is golden.

Pizza dough options!

Easily the hardest part of a homemade pizza is the pizza dough. But then again, easily the best part of a homemade pizza is homemade pizza dough! We highly recommend making our master recipe, below. But, there’s not always time for pizza dough. Below are a few shortcuts too!

  • Pizza dough: master recipe! This Best Pizza Dough has the absolute perfect flavor and texture. Stretching the dough takes a bit of practice, but it’s not hard. Head to How to Stretch Pizza Dough.
  • Thin crust. Try this Thin Crust Pizza Doug! It’s easy to roll out into a thinner, crispier crust.
  • Pan pizza. Another option: make this as a pan pizza in a cast iron skillet! It takes a little longer, but it’s an easier method.
  • Naan or flatbread pizza.  Here’s the quickest and easiest option! Try our Naan Pizza or Flatbread Pizza using purchased flatbread.

Use a pizza stone if you can!

This jalapeno pizza tastes amazing when you bake it on a pizza stone. It’s especially helpful for our basic and thin crust options, above. Here’s why:

  • Pizza stone: A pizza stone is what makes Italian pizza crust crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Here’s the best pizza stone we’ve found, plus care tips.
  • Pizza peel: Use a pizza peel to transfer the pizza onto the hot pizza stone in the oven. We recommend this Standard pizza peel or this Conveyor pizza peel.

More topping ideas for jalapeno pizza

Of course, you can use lots of different vegetables on your jalapeno pizza! Here are a few ideas of other flavors that would pair well:

  • White sauce: Try the ricotta cheese sauce from this white pizza instead of salsa verde.
  • Hot sauce: Want to blow your face off? Drizzle with Cholula.
  • Bacon and cream cheese: Turn it into a jalapeno popper pizza by spreading the crust with cream cheese and topping with bacon.
  • Bell peppers: Add more peppers, like the sauteed bell peppers from this healthy pizza.
  • Mushrooms: Try the mushroom sausage from this pan pizza.
  • Refried beans: Put jalapeno on a taco pizza instead.

How hot is a jalapeno pepper?

The jalapeno pepper is a medium spicy pepper. We’re assuming if you’re making this jalapeno pizza, you can handle the heat! The heat rating is 2,500 to 8,000 Scoville heat units (SHU). Here’s where it stacks up against other types of peppers:

  • Green pepper: No spice
  • Anaheim pepper: Very mild
  • Poblano peppers: Mild
  • Jalapeno peppers: Medium hot
  • Serrano peppers: Hot
  • Cayenne: Very hot
  • Habanero: Extremely hot

Description

This incredible jalapeno pizza is the best way to enjoy this mighty pepper on a cheesy pie! It’s full of savory, spicy flavor.


Ingredients

  • 1 ball Best Pizza Dough (or Thin Crust Dough)
  • Olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sliced zucchini (about 1/3 small zucchini)
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 jalapeño pepper
  • 1/2 corn cob or 1/3 cup corn kernels
  • 1 handful sliced red onion
  • 1/2 cup salsa verde
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese or queso fresco crumbles
  • 1 handful fresh cilantro

Instructions

  1. Make the pizza dough: Follow the Best Pizza Dough or Thin Crust Dough recipe to prepare the dough. (This takes about 15 minutes to make and 45 minutes to rest.)
  2. Place a pizza stone in the oven and preheat to 500°F. OR preheat your pizza oven (here’s the pizza oven we use).
  3. Saute the zucchini: Drizzle a bit of olive oil into a small skillet. Add the sliced zucchini, kosher salt, and dried oregano and saute until tender, stirring often, about 5 minutes.
  4. Prepare the other toppings: Thinly slice the jalapeño pepper. Cut the corn off of the cob. Mince the red onion.
  5. Bake the pizza: When the oven is ready, dust a pizza peel with cornmeal or semolina flour. (If you don’t have a pizza peel, you can use a rimless baking sheet or the back of a rimmed baking sheet. But a pizza peel is well worth the investment!) Stretch the dough into a circle; see How to Stretch Pizza Dough for instructions. Then gently place the dough onto the pizza peel.
  6. Spread the salsa verde onto the dough in a thin layer with the back of a spoon. Top with the mozzarella cheese, zucchini, jalapeno, and red onion. Sprinkle with the feta cheese.
  7. Use the pizza peel to carefully transfer the pizza onto the preheated pizza stone. Bake the pizza until the cheese and crust are nicely browned, about 5 to 7 minutes in the oven (or 1 minute in a pizza oven). Slice into pieces and serve immediately.

It 100% screams HELLO SUMMER as loud as it can.

sliced peaches

Corn and peaches are one of my favorite combos ever. They basically represent summer on a dish. And I love that with both being sweet and crunchy, they can work in a dessert or a savory meal. Just so good, right?

chili garlic oil

Peach pizza isn’t a new thing for us here. Years ago I made this peach ricotta pizza that has been a huge fave. And, well, corn on pizza? It’s a must have and another one of my favorite ingredients to throw on top of dough.

The combo also really shines in salads or salsas – if you’ve ever made the corn peach salsa from The Pretty Dish, then you know what I’m talking about! 

corn peach pizza on the grill

I threw this pizza on the grill, much like last year’s steakhouse pizza. I love doing pizza on the grill and we also have an ooni oven which is incredible. 

The only issue with grilling this is that the cheese may not get super bubbly and brown on top, in which case you can throw it under the broiler for a minute or two. If you head over to instagram today, I’ll show you exactly how I make this, step by step, in instagram stories. You’ll want to eat your screen! 

corn peach pizza off the grill

So the toppings! 

It allllll starts with some chili garlic oil. Sort of like this garlic sauce pasta, or the chili oil that I make for my white clam pizza – but combined! I’m warning you – this is addictive and you will want to dip and entire loaf of sourdough directly in it. It’s fab. Super garlicky with a hint of heat.

The oil sizzles with six cloves of garlic and a bunch of red pepper flakes. Then it’s the base for our pizza. On top we have thinly sliced peach, corn straight from the cob and a bunch of fresh mozzarella. I happened to use marinated fresh mozzarella and that is amazing too. Adds a little extra flavor, but it’s not totally necessary. Regular fresh mozzarella works too!

After the pizza is cooked and super bubbly and cheese, I like to top it with a few handfuls of microgreens and then lots of fresh basil. Or whatever herbs you have on hand. I also like to do one more extra drizzle of chili garlic oil on top. 

And of course, feel free to throw on some parmesan! 

It’s heavenly.

Ingredients

dough

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 3 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • flour and coarse cornmeal for dusting

toppings

  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 6 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 peaches, thinly sliced
  • 2 ears of corn, kernels cut from the cob
  • 8 ounces provolone cheese, freshly grated
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced or in balls

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, combine water, yeast, honey and olive oil. Mix with a spoon, then let sit until foamy, about 10 minutes. Add the flour and salt, stirring with a spoon until the dough comes together but is still sticky. Using your hands, form the dough into a ball and work in the additional 1/2 cup flour, kneading it on a floured surface for a few minutes. Rub the same bowl with olive oil then place the dough inside, turning to coat. Cover with a towel and place in a warm place to rise for about 1 to 1.5 hours.
  • Make the garlic oil. In a small saucepan, combine the oil, garlic and pepper flakes. Cook over low heat, stirring often, just until the garlic is slightly golden and sizzling.
  • After the dough has risen, punch it down and place it back on the floured surface. Using a rolling pin or your hands, form it loosely into your desired shape Place the towel back over the dough to rest.
  • Preheat the grill to high heat for 10 to 15 minutes - you want the temperature to be around 450 to 500 degrees F. If needed, lower the temperature a little bit.
  • Now comes the time when you need to be prepared! Have your corn and peaches sliced. Have your cheese out and ready to go. Generously cover a pizza peel with flour and coarse grind cornmeal. This will help prevent the dough from sticking.
  • Moving quickly, transfer your pizza dough to the pizza peel, quickly rolling it a bit more if needed but making sure the entire bottom is floured/cornmeal very well. Spoon the garlic oil all over top of the top, brushing it around the edges. Top with the cheeses, then the corn and peaches.
  • Quickly and gently use a spatula or additional pizza peel to slice your pizza directly on to the grill grates. Close the lid and cook until the pizza dough is bubbly and golden, anywhere from 5 to 8 minutes – but this will depend on the thickness of your crust. Just be sure to continue to check it. It will be finished when the edges are golden and puffed up! You can rotate the pizza a few times if you feel it needs it.
  • Once the pizza is finished, slide the peel under it and transfer it to a cutting board. Cover it with the micro greens and basil and slice it to serve. Enjoy!

It’s easy. It’s delicious. Super cheesy. And a huge crowd pleaser. It comes together quickly and is perfect for a weeknight meal. Especially in the next few months when you’re getting back into somewhat of a routine – whatever that may look like!

Enter: PIZZA STUFFED SHELLS!! Oh my word. All the flavor of cheesy pizza stuffed into pasta shells and covered with pepperoni. And more cheese. Because of course. 

freshly grated asiago cheese

I’m so excited to be partnering with Stella Cheese again today for these pizza stuffed shells. Today, I’m using their Aged Asiago Cheese, which I absolutely ADORE! 

Asiago is nuttier and smoother than parmesan. I’m partial to it because when I was growing up, it was the cheese that my mom would buy, hand grate, and serve with pizza and pasta. It’s easily one of my favorite cheeses and just so flavorful. I also find it to be incredibly versatile. While I usually only sprinkle parmesan on soup and pasta and pizza, I used Asiago cheese for that and MORE. Asiago is perfect for snacking – grab a slice with a cracker and you’re in pure heaven.  

YUM.

The Stella Asiago is aged for 12 months, giving it a super robust, sharp flavor.

You have to try it – it’s absolutely wonderful.

Now, if you’re looking for a top notch dinner idea to get you through the next few months – one that everyone will love, I’ve got you today. This has all the flavor of pizza stuffed into pasta shells and baked until cheesy and melty.

The filling is loaded with ricotta cheese, lots of herbs and spices and tons of freshly grated Stella Aged Asiago. It gets blanketed with marinara (use your favorite jarred version or go for homemade!), and then covered with more Asiago Cheese. I like to top mine with mini pepperoni pieces.  

However! What do you love on your pizza? You can add your favorite toppings to that.   

Throw on some roasted red peppers, even some mushrooms. Whatever toppings you love, add them to the top of your shells before baking.

Then we wait. And bake. And we’re rewarded with something gooey and saucy and loaded with cheese. It’s warm and comforting but comes together pretty quickly. You can also make this meal ahead of time, stick it in the fridge and bake it when you’re ready. I mean, those are the best kind, right?!  

Right.

This dish freezes well too. Stuffed shells are a great meal to bring to family and friends and heck, if you just have leftovers for yourself? They reheat beautifully.

I live for good pizza, but this is a unique yet easy twist on a favorite that elevates your weeknight dinner.
