Homemade Pizza Sauce (American Homemade with McCormick)

Homemade Pizza Sauce Recipe - Andrea Meyers

…and I to each other, and if we had to give one dish credit for getting us cooking together, it would have to be pizza. Both of us have been making pizza since before we ever knew each other. I had experimented with cracker thin crusts, and Michael played with deep dish and Chicago-style stuffed pizzas. When I saw his authentic well-seasoned deep dish pizza pan, I decided this was a man I wanted to get to know better. And Meyers Family Pizza Night…

White Grilled Pizza

White Grilled Pizza Recipe - Andrea Meyers

First things first: there’s still time to enter the Grilled Pizzas & Piadinas cookbook give away! Visit the original post and tell us about your favorite pizza toppings to enter! The dessert pizza with the cinnamon and ice cream was delicious, but then so were the savory pizzas we made. I chose to top one with a homemade tomato sauce, mozzarella, and fresh basil from our indoor garden (photo below), a pizza I knew the boys would like…

Butternut Squash Pizza with Pancetta, Goat Cheese, and Sage

Butternut Squash Pizza with Pancetta, Goat Cheese, and Sage - Andrea Meyers

…as I get an email from you with all the appropriate information you can still join us. My inspiration for this pizza comes from my adopted blogger Jennifer at Palate to Pen. She made a butternut squash pizza with prosciutto and white sauce, and the very thought of it had me drooling and dreaming up what else to do with a butternut squash pizza topping. For this pizza I cut the squash into small chunks, thinly sliced a few shallots, tossed it wit…

Quick Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

Quick Whole Wheat Pizza Dough - Andrea Meyers

Pizza is a staple around our house, something that we really enjoy making and eating. I have wanted to add a whole-wheat dough to our repertoire, and I’ve tried it a number of different ways but not always with good results. I also wanted to experiment with a quick dough, something that I could whip out on a busy day without a lot of rising time. I wish I could say that I had loads of time to make bread and pizza dough every day, but tha…

Eggplant and Sun-Dried Tomato Pizza

Eggplant and Sun-Dried Tomato Pizza - Andrea Meyers

Our family has been making pizza since Michael worked at a pizza joint back in his teen years. We each have our favorite style and toppings, but no matter what kind we make, we all enjoy working the dough and assembling the pies. I went vegetarian for this pizza on our favorite whole wheat pizza dough, and topped it with homemade basil pesto, roasted eggplant slices, sun-dried tomatoes, and just a light sprinkling of Parmigiano Reggiano. It’s…

Grilled Dessert Pizza with Ice Cream and Chocolate Syrup Recipe - Andrea Meyers

…t you are thinking. You are thinking, “Andrea botched up this post because that is definitely not grilled pizza.” Guess what? It is grilled pizza enrobed in cinnamon sugar with French vanilla ice cream in the middle and chocolate sauce on top. How’s that for an insanely good dessert pizza? Yes, my hand slipped and I went a little overboard with the chocolate sauce, but it still tasted delicious! This delicious creation comes fro…

Napoletana Pizza Dough

…a food that we could eat every single day and never tire of. For Michael, it’s pasta; for me, it’s pizza. I’ve been through several pizza phases in my life. In junior high, you either went to Godfather’s or Monical’s. In high school, the deep dish pizza made the big time and everyone flocked to Pizza Hut and Garcia’s. In college, Domino’s was hitting it big with their delivery service, although the peopl…

Chicago-Style Stuffed Pizza

Chicago-Style Stuffed Pizza Recipe - Andrea Meyers

I had my first taste of stuffed pizza at Giordano’s as a teenager. Years later while working in Chicago I frequented several of the great pizzerias, but the stuffed pizza at Giordano’s always kept me coming back. I tend to prefer a more traditional single crust hand-tossed style of pizza, but Michael does such a good job on these that I feel like I’m back in Chicago. This is Michael’s specialty and favorite kind of pizz…

Stuffed Pizza with Spinach and Chanterelles

Stuffed Pizza with Spinach and Chanterelles - Andrea Meyers

…tion was fantastic. With a rather large supply of chanterelles still left we decided to add them to our stuffed pizza. I had a fleeting moment of concern that the other flavors in the pizza might overwhelm the chanterelles, but I worried needlessly. Their flavor came through and the pizza was delicious. And now for the rest of the story… I lost track of these photos last year, some of the first I shot with the new camera Michael gave me, and I fi…

Pizza Pot Pie (The Kids Cook Monday)

Pizza Pot Pie (The Kids Cook Monday) - Andrea Meyers

…ids can help make. It only seems appropriate to start with one of our boys’ favorite dishes for our first TKCM: pizza. The boys have been helping with pizza for a couple years now, and we thought this famous variation on Chicago deep dish pizza would be fun for them to try. The credit for pizza pot pie goes to Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder Co. in the Lincoln Park neighborhood, and it’s one of those things that you just have to try at least once….
