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!

Be sure to hold off on topping the pizza until just before serving to preserve the salad’s crunchy texture!
