Homemade Pizza is THE BEST!
My family LOVES pizza, especially homemade pizza. Of course regular homemade pizza recipes aren’t all the difficult – some sauce, toppings, cheese. I’ve written about whether pizza is healthy or not before plus I’ve tried gluten free pizza recipes. But, truthfully, after a while, I just don’t know what to do with homemade pizza that will jazz it up.
Then, I was given the opportunity to create recipes for Nut Fusions Peanut Butter, but they only wanted savory recipes. So, homemade pizza recipes seemed like a great idea and Thai Pizza was born. I have subsequently tried this pizza recipes a couple times with regular peanut butter and it was good but needed about 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes to make it better.
One other quick tip – if you don’t have coconut aminos (although I highly recommend getting some) or tamari (which is properly prepared soy sauce) you can use regular soy sauce. But, when you run out of your current bottle, please make a healthier choice and switch to either coconut aminos or tamari. I know it’s a little more expensive up front, but seriously, how often do you purchase soy sauce anyway? Pick a healthier option. You can learn more about soy and health here.
Pizza – Your Way
My family fell in love with this homemade pizza even though it didn’t have any red sauce! It was a unique and different pizza but still with a bit of comfort food feel. You can make your own homemade pizza crust or use a premade crust. Many bakeries are not offering extraordinary homemade pizza crusts for sale. I’d recommend avoiding the pizza crust tubes, boxes, etc. as I haven’t found one that is very healthy. The final product, shown in the picture, was a premade crust so that’s what the pizza recipes below indicate. . . you just never know which pizza recipes will turn out for picture taking! So, I guess what I really learned was to just be adventurous – anything is pretty good on a pizza crust!
