There’s even more in the digital edition of Seasons magazine! Keep exploring pizza crust recipes and tips.

  1. Alfredo Pizza with Traditional Crust

    No, Alfredo sauce definitely was not meant to go on pizza when it was created in the early 1900s, but trust us, it tastes delicious!

  2. Detroit-Style Pepperoni Pizza

    Detroit-style pizza is rectangular with a thick crispy, chewy crust that tastes similar to focaccia bread. It was developed in 1946 and was baked on drip trays borrowed from local automotive suppliers because the proper baking pan for the size of the pizza didn't exist yet!

  3. Chicago-Style Italian Sausage Pizza

    Chicago-style pizza is famous for its deep-dish crust with high edges that hold in a large amount of sauce, cheese, and toppings. The dough is similar to a pie crust, making it more substantial and filling. It needs a long bake time, and if you exposed cheese to that amount of heat, it would burn. That's why the sauce traditionally is layered on top of the cheese!

  4. Gluten-Free Blue Cheese & Pear Pizza

    Pizza was invented in Naples, Italy, in 1889 (or so most people believe), and 128 years later, they perfected the gluten-free pizza crust. Our version uses tapioca flour, Fontina cheese, and Bosc pears.

  5. Cauliflower Crust Pizza

    You can enjoy pizza without the carbs—just opt for this easy cauliflower crust recipe! Using cauliflower also boosts the fiber content.
