Getting Saucy On National Pizza Day!

Posted by Boston Organics on Feb 9, 2020 12:00:00 PM

Happy National Pizza Day! Skip the fast-food and make a homemade pizza you're going to enjoy. You're not a weirddough if you've never made a pizza at home before. You might be a little weird if you like pineapple on your pizza (Controversial opinions welcomed in the comments below!). It can be intimidating but all you'll knead is an oven. Invite family or friends over for a slice of fun. 

The best pizzas have 3 components. Crust, Sauce, and Toppings. If you're Gluten-Free, Vegetarian, Vegan, or something in between, we have a recipe that will inspire you.

Crust

Sauce

Make your own tomato sauce, buy a tomato puree, or you think outside of the traditional pizza box. Switch it up with a basil pesto, white alfredo sauce, vodka sauce (not the alcoholic kind), hummus, BBQ sauce, spicy sauce, your favorite salad dressing, etc. The world is your oyster. It's fun to mix up flavors, use food that might expire soon, and get creative!

Basil pesto

Ingredients and Recipe

  • About 2 loosely packed cups fresh basil leaves
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 to 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts or walnuts
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan or other hard cheese

Toppings

While the crust and sauce are important, let's be real the real star is the toppings. Chose toppings with your favorite flavors, textures, what's seasonal, or what's local (Our Dogma box is entirely local produce!). If you're new at making pizza, you can cook your toppings before putting it onto your crust+sauce. Especially with produce that have longer cooking times than the crust -- like winter squash, kohlrabi, or broccoli.
