Chicken Marinara Pizza

By now, you probably know I am a big fan of pizza.  Not only do I have aspirations to open my own pizza and wine bar someday, but I make it at home all the time. Seriously.  All. The. Time. So, you can imagine we go through our fair share of pizza recipes -- tried [...]

Pizza Margherita

So, the other night, my mother-in-law asked me what I had cooked for this week's blog posts. I told her I made a Pizza Margherita and, not sure if she knew what it was, listed off the ingredients (essentially tomatoes, basil and mozzarella cheese). I also clarified it had nothing to do with a Mexican [...]

Pesto and Goat Cheese Pizza

This pizza is a great way to change up your average tomato sauce-based pizza.  Because, let's face it, tomato sauce--no matter how good--can get old on pizza after a while.  That's why I like to add alfredo or pesto sauces into my pizza sauce arsenal.  I made this pizza the other day and it turned [...]
