When we heard that 9th February was National Pizza Day (YES. REALLY!) we couldn’t have been more overjoyed. Admittedly, we hadn’t been planning for this very special occasion – it was social media that alerted us to the existence of this happy day when we arrived at Birchbox HQ this morning. However, we’re not the type of people to ignore a) a chance to celebrate or b) pizza. So, in honour of our new favourite day of the year, we’ve rounded up 5 awesome pizza recipes for you to try at home tonight… (You can thank us later.)
1. THE BREAKFAST PIZZA
Combining probably three of the most social media-friendly foods – avocado, eggs, and pizza – we can’t wait to tuck into this tasty breakfast pizza first thing! Plus, regardless of how good it looks, we will always get on board with any recipe that’s attempting to make pizza a socially acceptable morning food.
2. THE PIZZA THAT’S 1 OF YOUR 5 A DAY
Okay, technically speaking, we haven’t worked out exactly how many portions of veg these mini cauliflower pizzas contain. But, the base is made from cauliflower (seriously!) so that equals healthy in our eyes. Who’s with us?!
3. THE INSTAGRAMMABLE PIZZA
There are many reasons we love the look of this rainbow veggie pizza – it’s colourful, it’s flavourful, and it’ll look great on our Instagram feed – but the main one? It uses a a naan bread as a base! Yes, forget messing around with homemade dough – all you need is a shop-bought flat bread and a ton of your favourite toppings. Simple.
4. THE GUILT-FREE PIZZA
Ok, we know that nothing looks guilt-free about the image for this Galentine’s Day pizza but, trust us, this pepperoni feast is served with a salad. Yes, a salad! It might be dressed with a scattering of parmesan cheese and caesar sauce but who cares?! We’ll be tucking into this delight with our BFFs as soon as possible!
5. THE DESSERT PIZZA
If, like us, you’re looking at this pizza round-up as more of a daily to-eat list then it makes sense to round of the day with a fruit pizza. Now, if you’re one of those people that hates the thought of pineapple on your pizza (Seriously, who are you? It’s delicious!) then don’t panic. This one actually has a sugar cookie crust, strawberry cream cheese, and a scattering of coconut – so it’s definitely more pudding than pizza. We love it regardless.
