11 Perfect Pies for Your Next Pizza Party

There’s no wrong way to serve a pizza. Pizza can be a casual dinner, an elegant affair, or anything in between. It’s also fun to make. You can get everyone in the kitchen to top some pies, or just serve them table side with a flourish. When choosing a homemade pizza recipe, we like to mix things up. Depending on the occasion, we love everything from plain cheese to sophisticated pies with toppings like arugula or prosciutto. We won’t even judge if you eat your slice with a knife and fork!

In Sicilian cuisine, cooking vegetables with “estratto di pomodoro” (a concentrated paste of sun-dried tomatoes) lends irresistibly deep flavor to many classic dishes. Here, we’re cooking cauliflower with an umami-packed tomato paste to make a delicious topping for our pizza.

Tonight, we’re giving classic pizza a fresh twist: topping it with the crisp salad typically served on the side. Layers of savory tomato sauce and melted mozzarella get refreshing contrast from a romaine and cucumber salad—tossed with fresh basil and a creamy, spicy dressing made with quark cheese and Calabrian chile paste. Be sure to hold off on topping the pizza until just before serving to preserve the salad’s crunchy texture!

Spring Asparagus Pizza with Butter Lettuce & Pea Tip Salad

Pizzas are one of our favorite ways to highlight seasonal ingredients—and this sophisticated white pizza is no exception. We’re topping it with fresh mozzarella, scallions, and seasonal bites of asparagus. Just before serving, we’re dolloping on creamy ricotta seasoned with the zest and juice of a pink lemon (a striped variety with rosy flesh) and a pesto of sautéed arugula, garlic, and parmesan.

Garlic Ricotta Pizza with Peppers & Olives

This delicious pizza has all the makings of comfort food: the golden brown crust is topped with a seasoned tomato sauce, melty, creamy mozzarella, and bright aloha peppers. For cooling finish, we’re garnishing the warm pizza with dollops of garlicky ricotta.

Yellow Tomato & Basil Pesto Pizza with Hot Honey Cauliflower

This crowd-pleasing pizza gets a sunny twist from yellow tomatoes cooked into a simple sauce, whose sweet, mellow flavor gets a delicious contrast from herbaceous basil pesto dolloped on top just before serving.

Fennel & Onion Pizza with Fried Rosemary

The toppings for this flavorful pizza feature a classic Italian duo of fennel and onion—sautéed first to bring out their sweetness—for layers of dynamic flavor in every bite. A pan-fried rosemary garnish provides a final boost of aromatic flavor to the dish
