October is National Pizza Month. (As if you needed a reason to enjoy this treasured comfort food.) It’s time to get creative with new flavors and variations. Here are 15 ways to give your pizza more pizzazz.
1. Pizza Toast
Enjoy your pizza as a light lunch or a late night snack by topping toasted Martin’s Potato Bread with pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, sliced salami, and fresh basil or oregano.
2. Pizza Bread Cups
Use flattened rounds of Butter Bread and a muffin tin to create these customizable pizza cups in varieties like Margherita Pizza, BBQ Chicken Pizza, and Hawaiian Pizza. Great for parties and entertaining guests!
3. Pizza for Breakfast
No, we don’t mean cold leftover pizza from the night before (although, that’s fine too). Make a specialty breakfast pizza topped with scrambled eggs, cheese, and bacon, using flattened Martin’s Party Potato Rolls for a quick and easy crust.
4. Campfire Pizza
Forget the oven! Cook your pizza over the open fire using a pie iron (or mountain pie maker, or whatever you like to call it). These stuffed Pie Iron Pizza sandwiches are easily customizable and perfect for camping or backyard fire pits!
5. French Bread Pizzas
Host a pizza party and let your guests create their own open-faced French Bread Pizzas using Martin’s Hoagie Rolls and whatever toppings they choose! Get creative with options like green peppers, olives, pepperoni, tomatoes, basil, mushrooms, ham, or different kinds of cheese.
6. DIY Lunch Box Pizzas
Pack it to go with a build-your-own pizza kit, using a bento box or small food containers to portion out the tomato sauce, cheese, pepperoni, and mini toast rounds of Martin’s Potato Bread. Perfect for work or school lunches!
7. Pizza-Stuffed Sandwich Pockets
Remember those pizza-filled pastry pockets you enjoyed as a kid? Make them yourself using Martin’s Potato Bread (plus some egg wash and a fork) to seal in your favorite ingredients like mini meatballs, marinara sauce, and mozzarella cheese.
8. Pizza Sliders
Try your classic pizza flavors layered inside oven-baked sandwiches topped with a butter and herb glaze. They’re simple to make for the whole family in either a slider-size or larger sandwich roll size.
9. Pizza Hotdogs
Don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it! These pizza hotdogs are topped with marinara sauce, mozzarella, parmesan, and fresh basil and served atop Martin’s Long Potato Rolls-turned garlic bread.
10. Supreme Pizza Dip
Enjoy all the flavors of a supreme pizza—sausage, onion, green peppers—in dip form. This spreadable pizza sauce can be prepared in a slow cooker and served on toasted Martin’s Potato Rolls for a fun party appetizer or game day meal!
11. Veggie Lovers’ Pizza
Hold the sauce, please. This white pizza is layered with a cream cheese spread and fresh herbs and veggies for a lighter twist that makes the perfect snack or picnic fare.
12. Pizza for Halloween
Halloween is just around the corner but you can enjoy this spooky pizza any time of year, using some black food coloring, olives, and string cheese for easy decorating.
13. Pizza Grilled Cheese
Transform your favorite pizza into another favorite “cheat day” meal: grilled cheese. Try it with any style you prefer, such as the classic margherita or this white pizza grilled cheese filled with ricotta, mozzarella, parmesan, garlic, and Italian herbs and spices.
14. Flatbread Pizzas
Flatbread pizzas are simple and easy to make, especially using flattened and toasted Martin’s Potato Rolls as the “crust.” Get creative with different toppings such as chicken, avocado, and ranch dressing, or tomatoes, olives, artichokes, and feta cheese.
15. Spaghetti Pizza Boat
Leftover spaghetti? Repurpose it into a French bread-style pizza using Martin’s Hoagie Rolls-turned garlic bread boats. After all, it uses all the same flavors of traditional pizza!
