  1. Great giveaway! My favorite pizza is spinoccoli pizza – a yummy white sauce, cheese, fresh spinach, and broccoli. Delicious! 🙂

  2. I love taco pizza!

  3. GREAT giveaway! I like fig, prosciutoo, and arugula!

  4. Favorite pizza topping?! OMGosh! We just love pizza! We have 2 favs in our house, other than just plain old cheese n pepperoni. One is ground beef, onions and mushrooms. It’s kind of a mild pizza, but sometimes you want home baked meat and potatoes on a pizza. Another favorite in our house is pepperoni and pineapple…I know it supposed to be ham, but ham, well, I don’t like ham! And Cause I’m the mama, I get what I want!
    P.S. We love you too!

  5. I have always wanted a pizza peel! 🙂

    One of the best pizzas I make is an adaptation of California Pizza Kitchen’s Tostada Pizza. Bake your crust. Add refried beans and salsa (and cheddar cheese, if desired)…bake for about 5-10 more minutes. Top with shredded lettuce, diced green onions, chopped tomatoes, chopped cilantro and crushed tortilla chips. In a small container make a southwestern ranch by adding ranch (I do a homemade soy ranch) and either hot sauce or cayenne pepper. Drizzle on top of the pizza. Slice and enjoy!

  6. White pizza is my favorite!

  7. My absolute favorite pizza toppings are bacon, ricotta cheese, and mushrooms together. It is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!

  8. All time favorite is black olives and mushroom. But a newer favorite is pineapple and jalapeno!

  9. Greek Pizza…YUM. Peppers,onions,olives,feta cheese!

  10. The wood of this peel is gorgeous…I don’t think I’ve seen one this pretty! I love pizza and switch up my favorite toppings regularly, but one classic style that I know I can always refer to is a Margherita Pizza (and don’t forget the wine)!

  11. I’m a big fan of Hawaiian pizza, but I like it best with pineapple and mushrooms (skip the ham!) We also like to make calzone with ricotta, Italian sausage, veggies, and mozzarella. YUM – pizza sounds good, I’ve been craving it for the last nine months! : )

  12. I have 2 favorites- eggplant parm pizza and vodka sauce pizza with fresh mozzarella cheese….

  13. Favorite pizza?! How can I pick just one!
    Right now, it would have to be a BBQ chicken pizza with caramelized onions (lots of them).

  14. We’re pretty boring! We love spinach, garlic, sausage and mushrooms! Delish!

  15. my fave pizza toppings are TONS of veggies, namely mushrooms (lots of mushrooms), olives, peppers, onions, spinach and topped w/ mozzarella.

  21. I like my pizza simple, cheese only!

  22. I LOVE goat cheese on pizza. Goat cheese with any combination of vegetables would have to be my favorite! Now I think we’ll have pizza for dinner…

  23. My favorite topping combos vary, but the one I always seem to come back to is roasted red peppers, sopressata and fresh basil.

  24. Thanks for the giveaway Nikki! John and I have recently found lots of new pizza recipes-one we tried (that believe it or not the kids ate too!) is a white pizza: ricotta for the base, sprinkle on cooked and finely chopped broccoli, chopped sun dried tomatoes and then top with mozzarella. It was a surprisingly tasty combination. (And the kids got their veggies in their pizza-gotta love it!) Thanks for the chance to win!

  25. No new ingredients here – olive oil, fresh tomatoes, fresh moz and basil. The very best!

  26. I’m so boring- my favorite topping is just plain ol’ cheese.

  27. This would be perfect! Thanks for the chance. Hubby and I have started doing make at home pizza and I’d live to own a pizza peel! We do simple stuff at home but when I’m out my fav pizza has roasted eggplant, caramelized onions, and bacon! Yum!

  31. I just started reading your site a couple weeks ago. I LOVE food blogs, so thank you for having a good one 🙂 My husband and I make homemade pizza all the time. He made a bunch of homemade sauce that we just defrost when we make a pizza. The best toppings, in my opinion, are sauteed peppers and onions plus the variety pack of mushrooms pre-sauteed to drain the water out. I can see this being a good pizza with alfredo sauce, but we’ve always done red sauce! The pizza peel looks beautiful!

  32. My favorite pizza is spicy thai peanut pizza. A very yummy peanut butter based sauce, topped with marinated chicken, caramelized onions, roasted red peppers, scallions and of course either chopped peanuts or crispy noodles

  39. I love making pizza! I’m finally getting better at it and I bought an Emily Henry pizza stone (highly recommended, you can even clean it in the dishwasher). I’ve been using the back of a baking sheet as a pizza peel, but I’m ready to step my game up. Can you share where you got this one for all of us who don’t win? It looks like it’s easier to store with that nice, short handle.

    I like making pizza with chicken, bacon and a little red onion, fresh mozzarella and tomato sauce, white pizza with broccoli… doesn’t matter!

  40. A household favorite for the whole family is pizza on the grill with homemade pesto sauce, tomatoes, and mozzarella!

  55. Oh, I would love a pizza peel! I made a potato, carmelized onion, and gorgonzola pizza that was delicious!

  56. It’s not a new idea, but I love to make BBQ chicken pizza!

  57. I didn’t think I’d like a barbecue pizza, but I made one the other day that was really good and really simple. I made a homemade thick crust and spread some barbecue sauce on it instead of pizza sauce. I topped that with cooked ground meat moistened with a little more barbecue sauce (I used venison, but you could use beef, pork, chicken), added a generous amount of mozzarella cheese, and on half of it, I added chopped green pepper and onion. Mmmm!

  60. We just made a homemade pizza two nights ago! We covered ours with corned beef, chunks of bratwurst, saurkraut & loads of chees. It is delicious & our kids love it!!

  61. I love pineapple, banana peppers, any type of olive, and sun-dried tomatoes (but not together)! We make homemade pizza at least once a week at our house and try to switch it up. Our most recent favorite is Annie’s Mexican Pizza!

  62. That should say “lightly fried eggplant” (not friend)!

  63. We love hawaiian pizza with ham or bacon and pineapple. I also LOVE white sauce pizza with a little spinach, tomatoes and fresh mozzarella. also white pizza (with oily type sauce) with pesto and tomatoes YUM!

  77. Thin crust pizza with fresh basil, sun dried tomatoes, grilled chicken and ricotta. So delicious!

  78. Pineapple, banana peppers, and a tiny bit of red onion on homemade thin crust. The crunchy spicy/sweet thing works really well, and the red onion is there to balance out the color.

  79. We have really gotten into making homemade pizzas lately and there is really nothing better. Out current staple is the mexican pizza where we use salsa instead of sauce and ground beef seasoned for our meat! A splash of cheese and jalapeno with all our favorite olives! Once cooked we top it off with lettuce, sour cream and tomatoes! Voila! Perfection!

  80. My favorite pizza is a Ledo pizza with mushrooms, pure heaven

  81. I love your site! My family makes home-made pizza almost every Friday night. The kids like it plain and simple, I throw a bit of garlic powder in a simple crust recipe, then make 1/2 cheese and 1/2 with pepperoni. Now, my husband and I have more fun with ours. We’re still working on finding the perfect crust, but top the pizza depending on our mood, and what’s in the fridge. We start with a home-made sauce made from a can of tomatoes, tomato paste, herbs & spices. We’re traditionalists, pepperoni is a must, often with diced ham, fresh chopped tomatoes, red onion, bacon, green pepper, and, of course, plenty of cheese. Not a low fat night, but yummy!

  143. We had pizza last night…funny. I used bread flour in the dough recipe for the first time, I’m not convinced it was better. I used the traditional sausage olive combo.

    When I visited Australia last year I found that they had some of the most inventive toppings such as garlic tiger prawns on roasted red capsicum topped with fresh arugula & aioli, thinly sliced lamb fillets marinated in garlic & white wine, with roast pumpkin, marinated mushrooms & shallots, topped with crushed pistachios & finely chopped rosemary, and cherry tomatoes, roast pumpkin, caramelized onion, toasted pine nuts and feta, with wild arugula.

  186. I’m a traditional cheese girl.

  187. I do love the old standby of sausage, pepperoni, and mushrooms – if the crust is homemade, and the sausgage and mushrooms are browned together with fresh globe basil, oregano and garlic. Fresh is a must! Cover it all in mozzarella cheese. Delish!

  189. thanks for the giveaway!! my fav pizza is homemade sauce with canadian bacon, pineapple and mozz cheese sprinkled on top.

  191. Ohh….it would have to be the tomatoes that sit in olive oil and garlic for an hour or so and fresh slices of mozzarella and then when done cooking, a fine sprinkling of basil. Oh wait, that’s a Margherita pizza? Whatever, since I’ve learned how to do it, it’s the ONLY pizza I want to make 🙂

  192. My favorite pizza is something my husband and I came up with when we use to work at Dominos in college. lol. It’s a thin layer, with barbecue sauce, onions, bacon, chicken and topped with cheddar cheese.

    That’s a beautiful pizza peel.

  193. I have two favorites. I love a regular supreme pizza (sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, green peppers, onions, and black olives) but I also have been really digging BBQ Chicken pizza lately.

  194. I love BLT Pizza! On the crust, you put just a little olive oil inflused with garlic. Top with some bacon, tomato and cheese. Cook it like that until brown and bubbly. Then you smear mayo on top and top it off with shredded lettuce. Yum!

  195. Spinach, feta, sun dried tomatoes, red peppers, mushrooms, and toasted pine nuts.


  197. My favorite pizza toppings are fresh spinach, pesto and sausage with lots of veggies. I have recently discovered a riced cauliflower “crust” and I swear that I will never make regular pizza crust again. Even my teenagers love it!

  198. Chicken, broccoli, feta, and mozzarella… Delicious!

  199. Oh, I’ve been wanting on of these! I love all pizza, but my favorite is pepperoni and mushroom or BBQ chicken.

  200. Sara Moulton has a bunch of interesting pizza ideas. We had the Mediterranean pizza tonight.

  201. When I lived in Vancouver, BC there was this amazing pizza shop. I loved their artichoke/pesto pizza. It’s the best!!

  202. One of my favorites is thinly sliced tomatos, fresh mozz, fresh basil and olive oil

  203. Spinach, Fresh Tomato, Garlic, Onion, Pesto, Feta cheese, Olive Oil and No Red Sauce: YUM!

  204. Pineapple and black olives. Thank you!

  205. I made a chicken bacon ranch pizza, and it was pretty amazing! Definitely didn’t expect it to be so good.

  206. I like sun dried tomato olive and feta! Top with fresh spinach tossed in really good olive oil! Yum!

  207. Hey I just found your blog and love it! Thanks for sharing!
    Okay I really love this smoked mozzarella and arugula pizza that I got from Giada on the food channel. My husband and I and even our kids LOVE it. Mmmm

  208. In the summertime, we make homemade pizza using our grill and summertime finds. One of my favorites from August was caramelized onions, fresh green figs and goat cheese.

  209. Our family LOVES Chicken Bacon Ranch pizza. We have some sort of homemade pizza every friday night. Love it!

  210. My favorite is buffalo chicken dip pizza. Start like you’re making traditional buffalo chicken dip (diced chicken,franks red hot, ranch or bleu cheese and cream cheese), spread on top of pizza dough then top with mozerella. Ah-mazing.

  211. Love pizza with sun dried tomatoes, onions, peppers, feta cheese, fresh basil. Mmmm Mmmm good!

  212. I don’t have any clever combinations to share since my favorite topping is classic pepperoni. But one of my favorite ways to trick my kids into eating extra veggies is to put a layer of pureed carrots under the sauce, and/or add pureed spinich into the sauce. They don’t know it’s there and gobble it right up. :o)

  213. My hubby and I love to make homemade taco pizza. Definitely have to use taco sauce, sour cream and crushed up taco flavored Doritos..Yum-o!

  214. I love all pizza equally. I can’t say no to anything covered in cheese. I love making homemade pizza because it get my little ones to try new veggies.

  217. My favorite toppings (with the basic mozzarella and tomato sauce) include meatballs, ricotta and lots of veggies

  219. I love pizza with bacon, onions, and mushrooms with a Creme Fresh sauce 🙂 Soooo yummy

  220. Thanks for the chance to win! My favorite pizza is mushrooms (lots of them) and spinach! Oh, and some garlic, too! Yummy! Don’t forget the mozzarella!

  221. I once ate a fancy schmancy pizza place and was totally disturbed that they did not have pepperoni … good ol, plain pepperoni. I ordered one of the few familiar things on the menu, which was a chicken alfredo pizza. And Oh.MY.WORD., it was the BEST piece of pizza I have EVER put in my mouth. That place soon became my favorite place for pizza, I tried other stuff on the menu, all very good, but none ever measured up to the first pizza. And I wish like crazy I could find a way to replicate it, but no recipe I have ever found was the same…. SO good!

  222. All veggies

  223. A pesto base with feta, artichokes, diced eggplant, and kalamata olive. Nothing better than that.

  224. I love a baked potato pizza – my daughter made this more me and it was wonderful . . . She uses a sauce consisting of sour cream and ranch dressing . . . tops it with actual baked potatoes, bacon, green onions and lots of wonderful cheddar cheese. Yummy!!!!

  225. Pesto-base w/ spinach and goat cheese!

  226. I really enjoy fajita pizza-salsa, pepper jack cheese, and sauteed green peppers and onions and of course chicken!

  233. I love everything at Dewey’s Pizza but especially the Billy Goat: Olive Oil, Minced Garlic, Light Mozzarella Cheese,

    Peppers, Fresh Tomatoes. Yummy!

  234. In D.C. recently, I had a pizza with pesto and potatoes and it was excellente!

  238. I only like dessert pizza. With cinnamon, butter, and icing drizzled on it!! 🙂

  243. Goat cheese, sausage, roasted red peppers and pesto!

  244. My favorite is DEFINITELY ricotta cheese and sausage, topped with fresh basil once it’s outta the oven.

    I use good Italian sausage and brown that and throw that on top of tomato sauce and drop little mounds of ricotta cheese with a bit of Parmesan cheese mixed in. I also sprinkle some minced garlic all over and the fresh basil once it’s outta the oven is just heavenly!

  245. I have two favorite pizzas:

    Bacon, lettuce & tomato with ranch dressing instead of pizza sauce (bake the crust with just cheese, then add the dressing & toppings when it’s done).

    Hawaiian – with bacon, ham, & pineapple

  246. Great giveaway-thanks for the opportunity!! My favorite is yellow squash, garlic, tomatoes and feta cheese. Yummy!

  247. My favorite topping would have to be pepperoni but my favorite specialty pizza is chicken parm pizza. Yum!

  248. We make pizza almost every Friday. While it doesn’t require the use of a pizza peel, my favorite is a deep dish with homemade sauce, chicken sausage, roasted red peppers, fresh mozzerella & pecorino romano made in mt trusty springform pan!

  249. There are so many! Ham and pineapple is probably our go-to, but feta cheese, black olives, marinated artichokes and diced tomatoes (add extra veggies) is delicious, too! For a non sauce variety, we do roasted butternut squash, sauteed spinach and caramelized onions (just brush on olive oil in place of sauce). Yum!

  250. I love a Chicken BLT Pizza. And one that is soooo wrong but deliciously soooo right, Loaded Baked Potato Pizza.

  251. BBQ chicken pizza with red onions and bacon!!! Yummmm

  252. My favorite pizza is lahmajun, Turkish flatbread pizza with a spicy tomato, bell pepper and beef topping! Or just plain old thin-crust with bell peppers and onions.

  253. I really love grilled chicken and caramelized onions on my pizza – especially if it’s a white pizza!

  254. pepperoni and onions with fresh garlic

  255. My new favorite pizza combo: whole wheat pizza crust, spicy aribita sauce, roasted chicken, olives, onions, and mozzeralla cheese. Its a winner!

  256. My favorite is from a place I use to work at. It is called Marguerita Pizza. It has Broccoli, yellow squash, zucchini, onions, tomatoes, and a white sauce. It’s served with lime (I always get extra lime because it’s so yummy!)

  257. I’m not a big fan of tomato sauce, so I usually make my pizza with a mustard & olive oil sauce. I love ham, green peppers, and green/black olives… the hubby and kids like pepperoni and extra cheese, lol.

  258. I just recently found your blog and love it! I am making our favorite pizza right now. It has pesto as the sauce and eggplant and tomatoes as the toppings! I make a variation of the PW favorite pizza recipe. Yum, so good!!!

  259. My favorite pizzas are 1) black olives, mushrooms and pepperoni or 2) BLT pizza

  260. I enjoy a whole wheat crust, with pesto, fresh mozzarella, basil and tomato!

  261. That pizza peel is beautiful! Hmm…favorite pizza…
    Actually the best pizza-esque thing I’ve had lately was this: http://eatliverun.com/cheesy-zucchini-pizza/
    It is extremely easy to make, and so tasty.
    I usually like the more veggies the better, and I’m always partial to white pizzas.

  262. I have a BLT pizza recipe that is wonderful! Take the bacon, tomato, shredded lettuce, a homemade pizza crust, and a cream cheese spread (with Italian seasoning mixed in)… delish!

  263. I love a breakfast pizza with eggs, sausage, cheese and a country gravy over it all. Yum!

  267. Happy New Year to you & your family Nikki! Also, I would like to wish Judah a Happy Belated 1st Birthday. I am not certain if, you remember me, or not. I am Cara Swartz’s older sister. I realize this may be a conflict regarding the contest. Feel free to take me out if need be.
    However, I still wanted to include one of our favorite pizza pie recipes. My husband & I have tried to recreate specialty pizza shops (PieWorks & the like). A sure-fired winner has been the Chicken Buffalo Bleu Pizza.
    1 Pizza crust (We usually buy a premade one such as Mama Maria’s).
    1-2 Celery stalks finely chopped
    2.5 cups Cubed chicken (or you may also shred the chicken to your liking)
    Moore’s Buffalo WIng Sauce (We always eyeball it. The key is…Make sure it’s enough to coat the chicken!)
    1-2 Tablespoons Bleu Cheese dressing
    2 cups Mozzarella Shredded Cheese (Skim, 2%, or Whole Milk- Again, your preference.)

    First, take the bleu cheese dressing & spread it evenly along crust (instead of a traditional pizza sauce). Second, place the cubed chicken in a separate bowl & add the buffalo sauce (enough to coat all the chicken). Then, add the chicken to the pie. Spread the celery evenly amongst the chicken. Top the pie with the mozzarella cheese. Place in the oven @ 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes (depending upon the oven). Lastly, let the pizza rest for at least 5 minutes & then enjoy!

  268. My favorite pizza is a garlic olive oil base with mozz, grilled chicken, red onion, kalamatas olives, capers, artichoke hearts, pieces of fresh boccacini mozz and spinach. My favorite Italian restaurant that I used to work at makes it. Delicious and filling enough to have leftovers for lunch!

  269. Love just original pep pizza with extra cheese!

  270. Congrats on the site…I enjoy it! Pizza….this house loves pizza…it’s a staple! We love the basic everyday pizza with cheese pepperoni and fresh veggies such as peppers and mushrooms. Love when they can be fresh, crisp vegetable! Would love to see a recipe for some kind of chicken topping!

  271. caramelized onions, bacon, and goat cheese. mmmmmmmm.

  272. BBQ chicken pizza with caramelized onions. So good.

  273. New to your blog (found it looking for mac & cheese-yummy!) and think it is great! My favorite pizza is a white pizza with tomatoes, spinach, garlic (not too much!) and lots of fresh basil!

  274. How awesome! I just recently found an incredible NY style dough recipe and boy is it ever sticky. It never dawned on me to use a pizza peel – putting that only my gadgets to get list!

  275. chicken marinated in buffalo sauce, celery thinly chopped, and a thin layer of blue cheese dressing at the base of the pizza all topped with mozzarella cheese. 🙂

  276. This is an awesome giveaway 🙂
    I think my favorite pizza would have to be thin crust with pepperoni, bacon, mushrooms and pinapple 🙂 YUMMY!

  277. MMMM I love pizza….My favorite toppings are for BBQ chicken pizza, Chicken, Mozzerella, bbq sauce, zucchini, red onion, cilantro and olives. Now the best part bbq the pizza on your grill (my Dad’s trick) it is awesome 🙂

  283. Pesto Chicken Pizza…. YUM!

  285. We eat homemade pizza all of the time! My favorite is spinach, feta, almonds, red onions and tomatoes. YUM!

  286. My favorite pizza is Arni’s in Indiana – there are probably 6 to 8 locations spread throughout Indiana. What makes it great? They grind the pepperoni – sooooo good! It’s very similar to Pizza King (also love!). It’s the only type of pizza I like sausage on as well.

  287. My favorite pizza is thin crust with a nice topping of Portuguese Linguicia. For me, always light on the sauce!

  288. I’m pretty boring–I’m a pepperonin and hot sausage lover on my pizza–and that only! Unless, of course, it’s white pizza! MMMmmm…..pizza!

  289. What a beautiful pizza peel! My favorite pizza has no tomato sauce base….just a drizzle of olive oil, purple grapes cut in half, brie cheese, and parmesan. Pine nuts are sprinkled on right before it is removed from the oven just to toast a bit…

  290. Any homemade pizza. Deep dish is one of my favorites

  291. I love chicken and pesto with red onions. Yummm!

  292. great giveaway! our favorite pizza toppings are fresh basil, fresh mozzarella, and sausage. perfect everytime!!

  293. Thanks for the chance to win a pizza peel. I got my first stone for Christmas, but I’m finding it’s hard to maneuver without a peel!

    My current favorite pizza is a Thai chicken pizza. For the sauce, I use a Thai peanut sauce. On top of that, sprinkle a thinly sliced red and yellow pepper (a mandoline gives paper-thin slices), chopped scallions, and chopped cilantro. Next, scatter thin slices of a mesquite-grilled chicken breast. Place tiny dots of cream cheese (1 or two ounces) randomly in spaces between the chicken pieces, and bake for 10-12 minutes at 500 degrees.

    This is also really good cut into small squares for an appetizer.
