Best Homemade Fancy Pizza Recipes

Before I get into all the delicious pizza recipes, I wanted to give you a few quick tips on making amazing pizzas at home.


  • Preheat your oven or pizza stone before baking.
  • Try using different types of cheese for your pizza to add complexity and flavor.
  • Consider adding herbs or spices like fresh basil, oregano, thyme, garlic powder, or chili flakes for an extra kick.
  • Don’t be afraid to experiment with toppings; try adding ingredients you wouldn’t normally find on a pizza!
  • Use a store-bought dough to save time, or make your own for an extra special touch.
  • If using a pizza stone, make sure to let it cool completely before washing it.
  • To reheat leftover pizza, use the oven or a skillet rather than a microwave to keep the crust crispy.
