8 Exceptional Pizza Recipes for Sharing at Your Table

One of my favorite things to do is to gather with my friends and share a meal around the table. Food is one of the things that best unites people, and when you share a table with someone else, conversation flows, friendships blossom, and life feels so much better.

You can either make some simple pasta, or easy taco bowls, or toss up some salad, but one of my favorite foods for sharing is pizza.

Pizza can be made as simple or as complex as you like, but most importantly, I love the idea of slicing up a big pizza into many pieces, and that it’s food you can easily eat with your hands. No need for a fancy table set up – just relax, grab a slice, and enjoy!

Drop by her blog and say hello, preferably with a slice of pizza in one hand, and a glass of iced lemonade in the other!

Perfection

Think again before you order a small pizza. The folks at Groupon analyzed data from 230 plain, specialty (think meat lover’s and Hawaiian) and one-topping pizzas from six national chains to find the best value.

Their conclusion is that you should “never, ever, buy the small pizza.”

Buying a large pizza is a better value and cheaper price than buying a small.  

They calculated the surface area of the standard diameter of pizza measurement to determine the best price. Pizza prices from six of the largest national pizza places — Domino’s, Pizza Hut, Papa John’s, Casey’s, Papa Murphy’s and Little Caesars — were factored in. The average price for 2-3 slices of a 14-inch pizza came out to about $5 per person. 

Groupon, an eCommerce business that offers deals on a variety of things to do, restaurants, travel and products, gave huge kudos to Detroit’s hometown local pizza chain Little Caesars for having just one size, a 14-inch pizza. They singled out Little Caesars calling them “…far and away the most cost-effective pizza chain out there.”

No Pork on pizza

Sausage Not Made from Pork

Is this really a big deal?

What what’s the deal with pork? When I first started on this journey I had given up hamburgers for Lent. I was introduced to turkey burgers. It opened my mind that there were alternatives to ground meats and if spiced correctly it would taste just as good.

I had the same thought with pepperoni. What were the alternatives? I was never a ham guy and quite frankly the only pork products I eat are baby back ribs and crispy bacon. Therefore, I wanted to come up with turkey and beef versions fo sausage and pepperoni.

Its healthier than pork and I wanted to make sure that people who didn’t eat pork could try this pizza. All the Abrahamic religions dont allow for pork to be eaten so Jews, Christians and Muslims if they are devout and follow would’t be able to try the pizzas but now they can.

Half Pepperoni & Sausage

Half pepperoni & sausage?

Playing with toppings is great but I love the classics. I also like to use other ingredients to make staples on pizzas. I use beef and turkey to make pepperoni and sausage. Mo one has been able to tell the difference and its not as fatty. Also people with certain diets can also enjoy these pizzas.

I even do enjoy Pineapple on pizza but this is the only thing that is in left field that I would consider. Recently in the Washington Post they addressed this topic.

Tim Carman starts by stating “At some point in the never-ending debate over whether pineapple belongs on pizza, the haters, maybe with tongues pressed against cheek, invoked Godwin’s Law. Yep, they compared those who like the tropical fruit on pies to Hitler. One said they were worse than Hitler. The comparison would become a common insult, occasionally even flung back at the snobs who turn their nose up at a pineapple-topped pizza.” See the full article here.
