What fun to host an Atlanta and Company Pizza Party with some creative chefs and fun host Christine – Click HERE to see all the action!
Pizza is just what you make it – its only limited by your creativity!
Starting from the bottom to the top – you can use many things for a bottom crust, from a homemade crust, a purchased dough, a crust already made, a big flour tortilla or a crust made with alternative ingredients like cauliflower or oatmeal.
What’s on top of your pizza? Depends on what YOU like. Less is more when it comes to topping your pizza – don’t overload your pizza with toppings – your crust will get soggy and it will be hard to eat.
Oatmeal Crust Pizza
- 2 Cups *Oat Flour
- 1 Tsp Baking Powder
- 1/4 Tsp Sea Salt
- 2 Tsp Italian Seasoning
- 1 Tsp Garlic Powder
- 1 Large Egg
- 2 Large Egg Whites
- 2 TB Honey
- 2 TB Water
- 2 TB Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Preheat oven to 400F. Combine oat flour, baking powder, salt, Italian seasoning and garlic powder in a large bowl. Mix in eggs, whites, honey, water and olive oil until dough forms.
To assemble the pizza, spread the dough with sauce, sprinkle with cheese and add your favorite toppings. Transfer pizza to oven and cook for 15 minutes.
*make your oat flour by whizzing old-fashioned oats in your food processor
Crazy Good Cauliflower Pizza
- 2 Cups Cauliflower (pulsed in the food processor so it looks like crumbs)
- 1 Large Egg, Beaten
- ½ Cup Shredded Skim Mozzarella
- ½ Cup Grated Parmesan
- 1 Tsp Sea Salt
- ½ Tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper
- ½ Tsp Red Pepper Flakes
- 1 Tsp Dried Oregano
- Your Choice of Toppings
Step One Nuke the cauliflower in the microwave until soft about 1- 2 minutes. Set aside to cool. When cool, place in a clean kitchen towel and squeeze out all the liquid.
Step Two Preheat the oven to 425F. Mix the cauliflower with the egg, cheeses, salt, peppers, oregano and pat into a flat round on a piece of parchment placed on a sheet tray. Bake for about 10 minutes or until set. Take the pizza out of the oven and add your toppings, return to the oven for 5 – 10 minutes until browned – if necessary, you can run it under the broiler to get it toasty.
Personal Whole Wheat Pizzas
- 11⁄2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
- 11⁄2 Cups All Purpose Flour
- 2 Packages Rapid Rise Yeast
- 11⁄2 Tsp Fine Sea Salt
- 1 Tsp Sugar
- 1 1/3 Cup Hot Water (110 -120F)
- 4 Tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Step One Preheat the oven to 500F. Combine the Flours, Yeast, Salt and Sugar in a food processor; pulse to mix. Combine the water and oil in a measuring cup. Slowly drizzle the mixture into the processor with the motor running until it forms a sticky ball – the dough will be REALLY soft and sticky.
Step Two Plop it out on a lightly floured surface. Spray a sheet of plastic wrap with cooking spray and place it sprayed side down on the dough and let it rest for 15 – 20 minutes before preparing.
Step Three On a lightly floured surface, divide the dough into 10 balls. Pat each ball into a pizza. Spread on your choice of toppings and bake until the crust is crisp and golden about 10-12 minutes.
Perfectly Easy Tomato Sauce

- 1 TB Italian Seasoning
- 1 Grated Garlic Clove

Heat the oil in a sauté pan and cook the onion with the Italian Seasoning over medium heat until soft about 5 minutes. Add the garlic clove and cook and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the wine and simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the tomatoes, oregano and a healthy sprinkle of salt and pepper, cook over medium heat for 20 – 30 minutes, or until the sauce thickens.
