Mini Deep Dish Pizzas

It’s impossible to make too many of these mini deep dish pizzas. They’re perfect for the big game or any get-together. They’re easy to make, and with a little imagination, you can make a variety of them to please anyone. We decided to go the simple route and just top these pizzas with cheese and mini pepperonis. We both thought they were fantastic.
Mini Deep Dish PizzasMake sure you leave the mini deep dish pizzas in the oven long enough to get a bit of a crunchy crust on them. They’ll also get a bit more crunchy after you take them out of the oven and cool a bit.

Muffaletta Flatbread Pizza

True story: I often dream about muffaletta sandwiches. They have the perfect combination of flavors. Smoky provolone. Cured meats. Fantastic olive salad. This muffaletta flatbread pizza takes all those great flavors (and more) and puts it on a bite-sized crunchy slice. Perfect for a party, perfect for any time!
Muffaletta Flatbread PizzaI make my own olive salad when I have time. It’s completely amazing, and definitely one of my favorite things to make. No matter if you use homemade or store-bought, make sure you drain the salad a bit before using it. You want a bit of the great olive oil flavor, but you don’t want a soggy pizza.

Also try my white garlic chicken flatbread pizza. For a great side dish, try my muffaletta pasta salad.

White Garlic Chicken Pizza

This white garlic chicken pizza reminded me that I really need to eat more white sauce pizza. I usually opt for red, making my own sauce, but the creamy, garlicky, cheesy sauce on this pizza was fantastic. Black olives, shallot, moist and tender chicken and Mozzarella topped it all off delicious bite-after-bite.
White Garlic Chicken PizzaI used chicken that I had roasted on my Char-Broil Big Easy when making this white garlic chicken pizza, but any cooked chicken will do. Grab a rotisserie chicken next time you’re at the store and shred or chop it. Perfect.

Also try my BBQ chicken and muffaletta flatbread pizzas.
