Summer Pizza Recipes

Homemade pizzas topped with summer's freshest ingredients
Article Image

Summer. . .the season of burgers, potato salad, and. . .pizza? Oh, yes. These pizzas are topped with summer’s best: tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, zucchini and lots of fragrant basil. Too hot for the oven? You’ll find plenty of grilled pizzas (bonus: a gluten-free dough for grilling), and even a fried pizza. You can also create a custom thin- or thick-crusted pizza (yes, the dough is make-ahead!) using our Pizza Recipe Maker.
