Pizza Sub Shopping Tips

Pressed for time on a busy weeknight, but don't want to settle for frozen pizza? Start with ready-made pizza crusts. You'll still be able to add your own sauce and fresh ingredients for a homemade taste.

Pizza Sub Cooking Tips

If you're attempting to make your own dough, make sure to keep your work surface lightly dusted with flour, or the dough may stick.

Wine Pairing

Grenache, gamay, nero d'avola, pinotage, rosé; pinot gris/grigio with seafood pizza; albariño with white pizza.

Best Pizza Sauce Recipe (No Cook, Authentic Italian Style)

The best pizza sauce recipe is also the easiest no cook pizza sauce recipe! The best part is, it’s also an authentic Italian recipe–so what are you waiting for? Next time you make pizza, this is your recipe!

I am amazed at how many pizza sauce recipes I’ve found that are so complicated, include a laundry list of ingredients (including sugar) and that are nothing like a pizza sauce that I’ve ever seen in Italy!

What you’ll need to make the best pizza recipe

There are a few tools that will ensure the pizza making process is an easy one, and like with anything you bake, the measurements need to be accurate. These are the tools I have at home and all of them are affordable.

Digital Kitchen Scale:

I couldn’t stress enough how important a scale is. When it comes to baking pizza, you want to measure your flour in grams. Using a measuring cup will more than likely, end up by having more flour in your recipe than what its called for. If you don’t have one yet, I would seriously consider ordering one online. They range in price, but go as low as $10.00. If you want to try this recipe and don’t have one at home, spoon the flour into the measuring cup and level it with a knife.

Baking Steel

When I first started baking pizzas, I bought a pizza stone. Within a few years, I had to keep replacing them. You see, to make sure your pizza dough cooks evenly and fast, the oven hast be heating for an hour at its highest temperature (usually 500 F or 550 F) before baking the pizza. The problem with a pizza stone is that it can’t simply withstand that amount of heat, and after a few uses it will break. So I decided to invest in a durable baking steel instead. Not only it will last you a lifetime, but it has a much greater thermal conductivity as well. Meaning that it retains heat more evenly and for longer than a baking stone does, and cooks the pizza faster and more effectively. On top of that, you can also use the baking steel to bake rustic breads. Mine is from Baking Steel and you can find the one I have here.

Pizza Peel:

A must to transfer your pizza to and from the oven. Again, they range in price. I have a wooden one that has lasted for years and was not expensive.

These tools will make the process of baking the best pizza recipe, simple and stress free. And believe me when I tell you, it’s worth it.

How to Make

Take the two pizza crusts, and cut each in half, on the cheese side of the crust, I spray with cooking spray, to keep from sticking.

I started making my own pizza dough for these. I oil and sprinkle pan with corn meal. Spread dough as if making a pizza and bake for 10 - 15 min at 400 degree F.

Remove from oven, take the crust off on the cheese side, add the lettuce, tomato, onion and mayo. Cut in half and enjoy. These can be a bit sloppy to eat, you made need a bib..but oh so good!!In my opinion Boboli's crusts are the best for these, they get nice and crispy, yet stay chewy..any thin crust will do, have had to use another, when I couldn't find the Boboli's. The possibilities for this sandwich are endless..

Italian Pinwheels

“Keep calm and eat Italian food”

Have you guys heard this quote? I just find it kind of funny because, well, I’m Italian, and I cannot keep calm ?

Everybody knows that Italian blood is just a little more red than others, and we more easily see red because of this too

I’m Italian Italian… like my dad’s parents are fresh off the boat to America. My dad was the only one out of his five other siblings to marry a non-Italian woman

My mom is as Irish as they come, and as you can imagine my grandma did not like this at all

He always told me a famous story about a young Italian man telling his mom he has found the one and that he wants to marry her and have his mother meet her

He says “just for fun I’m going to bring three girls over and I want you to have small talk with them and tell me which one you think I love”

The Italian mom ends up saying “the one on the right”

Then the young man excitedly says “you’re right! How did you know that?”

And she says “because I don’t like her”

Now, I won’t say this story holds true to my family, but I won’t say it doesn’t either, LOL

You can’t go wrong with Italian pinwheels, they’re amazing!

The spread and the meats just give it enough kick to give it a little spice while the cheese, lettuce, and cream cheese tone it down and add a little creaminess to it. I love how easy these are to make, seriously

There are only five ingredients to make the pinwheels and then you can customize the pepper spread using any of the ingredients she lays out for you

They also make 21-36 pinwheels depending on how thinly you slice them, which is perfect for any event

Simple and tasty, I think olive these!

Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Grilled cheese sandwiches are kicked up a notch with the addition of pepperoni slices, mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce, creating pizza grilled cheese sandwiches.

It was a cloudy day in San Diego today, perfect weather for these pizza grilled cheese sandwiches. Does anyone else feel like their energy level is significantly influenced by the weather? For me, sunny days mean I’m hopping with energy, but cloudy days sap all the strength out of me and I just want to curl into bed.

So, obviously we’re taking a slight break from the healthy recipes. It’s all about balance right? I don’t feel too guilty because at least I’m keeping up some other resolutions. Okay maybe just one other. But that’s better than nothing.

One of my New Year’s resolutions is to take better care of my face before I start getting wrinkles and can no longer turn back time. The last few years, I’ve definitely been skating by on my Asian genes. My nighttime skincare routine was maybe slapping on some cream before bed if I remembered.

During a Christmas party, some of the girls started talking about beauty treatments, facial masks, etc. And that made me realize that I really needed to start taking better of my skin and should have started long before. So I started researching Korean skincare because Korean actresses have the most amazing skin and they are obsessed with facial skincare. Their regime consists of 10+ products and steps. Yikes. I bought what I thought were the essentials (which were not cheap!) and so far I’ve been really good at keeping it up every night.

I have to confess though, I don’t see any difference yet. I’ll give it some more time.

Since I’ve been keeping up with my skincare regime, I don’t feel as guilty about posting about these pizza grilled cheese sandwiches. These were so good, especially with all that sauce and stretchy cheese. I really love pizza-izing dishes so if you are looking for more ideas be sure to check out my Pizza Puffs and Pepperoni Pizza Cones, too.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Lightly brush the insides of the rolls with the Italian salad dressing.

On the bottom half of each roll layer the salami, turkey, ham, provolone cheese, tomato, and onion.

Place the tops of the rolls on and wrap each sandwich tightly in aluminum foil.

Place the foil-wrapped sandwiches on a baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted (unwrap on end of the foil to peek).

When ready to serve, carefully remove the foil and slice the sandwiches in half. Serve warm.

Recipe Summary

  • 1 1/2 cups warm water (115 degrees)
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons (two 1/4-ounce envelopes) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for bowl and baking sheet
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Coarse salt
  • 4 1/3 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for surface
  • 6 vine-ripened tomatoes, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup crumbled soft goat cheese (5 ounces)
  • 32 thin slices soppressata (8 ounces)
  • 1 pound fresh mozzarella, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 8 ounces baby arugula (about 10 cups)
  • 2 cups fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from 2 lemons)

Make the dough: Pour warm water into a large bowl sprinkle with yeast, and let stand untilfoamy, about 5 minutes. Whisk oil, sugar, and 2 teaspoons salt into yeast mixture. Add flour,and stir until a sticky dough forms. Turn out dough onto a floured surface, and knead until smooth, about 8 minutes. Transfer to an oiled bowl, and turn to coat. Let stand, covered, in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.

Meanwhile, make the filling: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spread tomatoes on a rimmed baking sheet, drizzle with 3 tablespoons oil, and season with salt. Roast, flipping after 30 minutes, until shrunken and slightly dehydrated, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Let cool. Raise oven temperature to 500 degrees (with convection on if possible).

Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface, and divide into 8 pieces. Form each into a ball.Let rest, draped with plastic wrap, for 15 minutes.

Place 1 dough ball on a lightly oiled baking sheet, and shape into a 7 1/2-inch round. Arrange a layer of tomatoes on half of the dough, and dot with 2 tablespoons goat cheese. Top with 4 slices soppressata. Tear off pieces of mozzarella, and place over top. Fold dough over to enclose filling, but do not seal. Repeat with remaining dough, tomatoes, goat cheese, soppressata, and mozzarella (arranging 4 sandwiches per baking sheet). Bake until golden and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Let cool for at least 15 minutes before serving.

Meanwhile, toss arugula and basil with lemon juice and remaining 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoonsoil. Season with salt and pepper.

Open each sandwich, and fill with arugula-basil mixture. Cut each in half.

Frequently Asked Questions & Answers

Can you Freeze Keto Pizza Crust?

Yes, you can! Simply freeze it after it&rsquos all baked. When ready to serve, microwave and toast it for a few minutes before serving.

Can I Make this Pizza Crust Ahead?

Yes, you can! Simply bake the crust before freezing. Wrap it in a Ziploc Bag and freeze up to 2 months.

When you&rsquore ready to eat this keto pizza crust, take it out of the oven, let it thaw for an hour, add your toppings and bake an additional 15 to 20 minutes.

Help! My pizza crust turned purple or grey.

This is perfectly normal and fine. Some brands of psyllium husk tend to turn purple or grey when baked. The dough is still perfectly edible and tastes exactly the same, it&rsquos only the color that is affected.

I always suggest using the NOW Psyllium Husk powder as I&rsquove personally never had any problems with it.

Help! There&rsquos yellow bits in my pizza dough.

Totally normal. The yellow bits are just the egg yolks. They&rsquoll be gone once you bake the pizza crust in the oven.

Can I use Whole Psyllium Husks?

They don't work quite the same as the powdered version so I suggest grinding them in a blender first.
