Do We Really Need to Convince You to Make These Pizza-Themed Recipes?
Check out all these bitchin' pizza-themed appetizers! They are excellent for any party or gathering among friends, but better when you make them at midnight and eat all of them by yourself in front of the warm, welcoming glow of Netflix's original programming. Who needs friends when you have pizza pot pie?
Combining my three greatest loves (pizza, waffles, and lightly greasing a waffle iron), this mash-up of breakfast/pizza is a meal that has no time constraints. When pizza's on a waffle, you can eat pizza anytime. Except in the dressing room at JCPenney. They will kick you out of the store for that (trust me).
- Pillsbury Grands! biscuits
- Waffle iron
- Pizza accoutrements
It's fattening, greasy, filled with meat, and quite possibly more American than apple pie.
- Shredded mozzarella
- Spicy Italian sausage
- Pizza sauce
If there's one problem I have with pizza, it's that the crust is plain ol' pizza dough, rather than a slab of savory ramen. This solves everything and will allow me to die fulfilled.
The French take their cuisine seriously -- and that extends to their ubiquitous breakfast pastry, the croissant. That being said, we are sure they have zero qualms about teaming up with their continental neighbor (Italia!) to provide the world with the greatest European duo since Siegfried and Roy.
- Puff pastry
- Dried oregano
- Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese
Salads are cold and boring, and the only way to improve them is obviously to add little bites of pizza in every forkful. And they are ridiculously easy to make.
- Leftover pizza
- Vegetable oil
Every boring bagel deserves to be saved from the margarines and chives of the world. Here to add an uppercut of flavor to even the blandest of breakfasts, is cream cheese that tastes like pizza. Actually, you don't even need a bagel to enjoy this stuff, in theory. Just one clean hand and zero shame.
- Plain cream cheese
- Sun-dried tomatoes
So, maybe this is just a seasonal thing (to replace your decidedly un-delicious gingerbread house), but in my opinion, a pizza hut this majestic can't be limited to one month of the year. Doesn't it make you just want to curl up inside of it and spend the new year surrounded by walls of sauce and cheese? Pee-wee Herman agrees with me.
- A shit-ton of pizza
- A blow torch
- Too much free time
