I’m mixing things up today! I know 99% of you are here for home decor and design posts, but I’ve been hoarding some recipes I wanted to share with you today. Now that the weather has changed and we’re nearing summertime, we’ve been talking more about pizza night, homemade flatbreads on the weekends, plucking herbs from the garden, and eating al fresco on the patio. I live for those warm weekend nights… homemade pizza, a glass of wine, cold beer, or a cocktail in hand, all while relaxing & unwinding outside. It’s the simple things… and tomorrow is Friday, so you know what that means! I know many of you have a similar tradition, as we always wish each other a “happy pizza Friday!” If you’re looking to start a summer tradition of your own, you’re going to want to save some of these delicious recipes! Click through to see 12 pizza & flatbread recipes we’re going to cycle through and try this season…

#1 // Southwest BBQ Chicken Pizza

12 Homemade Pizza & Flatbread Recipes To Try - roomfortuesday.com The first recipe is my own. It’s a go-to favorite we have multiple times each summer… what’s not to love about a good barbecue pizza bursting with flavor? This one is really filling, too!

#2 // Fig Jam Prosciutto Pizza

I have a major sweet tooth, so any pizza with fig, jam, or honey is going to be delicious in my book! This one seems fresh and flavorful for spring. I also enjoy a pizza topped with greens, and arugula is my favorite.

#3 // Spinach & Artichoke Pizza with Cheesy Bread Crust

Cheesy bread crust?! That’s honestly all I needed to hear. Spinach, artichokes, and cheese is always a winning combination. This pizza looks divine- the presentation is really lovely.

Pan pizzas are becoming a fun way to mix things up around here… they provide a nice thick crust and are easy to make. Pesto, tomatoes, and mozzarella are classics that are always a hit in our house!

#5 // Crispy Fried Pizza

How have I not tried making a pan fried pizza? I’m convinced this is going to be amazing and can’t wait to pull out my cast iron. I think we’ll stick with the classic marinara, cheese, and basil toppings for this one! Have you ever fried a pizza?

#6 // Caramelized Onion, Bacon, and Gruyere Pizza

Any food with caramelized onion is a win for me… I put onion on everything! This simple pizza seems like it will be another summer staple for us, and I have a sneaking suspicion we’ll be adding this one to the regular rotation.

#7 // Butternut Squash Veggie Pizza

This is technically considered a fall pizza, but I love squash and veggies! I’ve had this one saved for awhile and I’m determined to make it this summer. Based on the ingredient list, I know it will be packed with flavor!

#8 // Cheese, Radicchio, Onion, & Honey Pizza Flatbread

Honey and onion… you know where I’m going with this one. Ha! This is my kind of sweet pizza. Although, I’d substitute the blue cheese for goat cheese… that’s more my speed.

#9 // Buffalo Cauliflower Pizza with Roasted Onion Cream

Do you like buffalo sauce? I like a little heat and buffalo has always been a go-to flavor in our house. This is actually a vegan pizza! I’m going to make this one, share it with Emmett, and I’m guessing he won’t be able to tell the difference. It looks delicious!

#10 // Heirloom Tomato Flatbread

12 Homemade Pizza & Flatbread Recipes To Try - roomfortuesday.com This recipe is another from my own collection. We make flatbreads all the time during the summer months. They’re quick, easy, and we’re able to grab tomatoes straight from our garden. Is there anything better than arugula, balsamic, mozzarella, pine nuts, and mozzarella? I think not.

#11 // Lemon Ricotta Herbed Flatbread

This flatbread recipe is one I tried last year and really enjoyed! We mix up a lot of lemon ricotta at our house- it has the best fresh flavor for summer.

#12 // Grilled Peach Caprese Naan Pizza

Last, I’ll leave you with this grilled peach caprese flatbread recipe. It’s drizzled with a balsamic glaze and looks heavenly. It’s topped with basil ribbons and I know it would taste as goods as it looks. This is another one I’m really excited to try!

→  get the recipe  ←

Of course we also make a lot of classic options… we devour plenty of pepperoni and margherita pizzas, but it will be fun to get more creative and try some of these outside-the-box recipes this summer. Do you make homemade pizza or flatbread often? Do you order pizza often? It definitely feels like a weekend food to me, and our tradition has become something I very much look forward to each Friday. I’d actually love to install a pizza oven in our backyard someday. I hope you were able to save some recipes and enjoyed this abnormal food post! I wanted to make it live before tomorrow… which happens to be pizza Friday! Have an amazing weekend and I’ll see you back here on Monday.

    We make pizza on Fridays too! Usually pepperoni, mushroom, and red onion with lots of minced garlic added to the sauce for us and a cheese (sometimes with a little crumbled bacon) for our daughters. We were looking for a bit of a change last week, but didn’t want to go to the store again so we used pepperoni, hot honey, and sprinkled extra red pepper for a little more heat. It was great. I love getting the fancy and creative pizzas when we go out, but haven’t made too many at home. You’ve given me plenty of ideas to try tomorrow. Thank you!

      I love that, Misty! Your regular go-to pizza sounds amazing. We also love adding minced garlic to ours… and hot honey- such an incredible idea! I hope your week is off to a good start, and you enjoyed some delicious pizza over the weekend :)

    We started making pizzas at home earlier this year and haven’t looked back! It ended up being much easier than I thought and WAY more delicious than the pizza around where we live. Half Baked Harvest’s Meanest Greenest Pizza has been on repeat over here. We haven’t tried her Spinach & Artichoke Pizza with Cheesy Bread Crust from your post yet. And that buffalo cauliflower pizza looks amazing too! I’m going to add those to our next pizza Friday. Have a great weekend, Sarah!

      It’s so fun! I live for Pizza Fridays. Haha! We’ve actually tried the Meanest Greenest pizza and that’s one of our faves too, though we haven’t had it in awhile! I’ll have to add that back into our rotation. I hope your week is off to a good start, Dana! xox

    Gimme all the pizza recipes! After lots of experimenting last spring, I’ve nailed my crust recipe. Since it makes two big crusts, I just parbake one and pop it in the fridge for the following Friday. Other than the base, toppings are always open for improvisation! Lately, I’ve been making pesto with whatever greens have been languishing in my fridge. I especially enjoyed a lemony kale version. From your list, anything with caramelized onions would be a hit in this house. Why haven’t I done that already? The one with radicchio and blue cheese screams Prosecco on the patio to me. (Are you not a blue cheese fan?) The butternut squash and the buffalo cauliflower both look mouth-watering! I’ve been experimenting with lots of vegan fare lately-to rave reviews! Frying? We heart a crispy crust, so I bet that would be delish! I haven’t made it in a while, but I found a Jamie Oliver recipe for a no-yeast, pan pizza that we gobbled up. So many wonderful options! Where to start? I’m heading to the garden today, and the arugula is going crazy…hmmmmm. Have a delicious weekend! Happy Pizza Friday to us all!🍕💜☀️

    Pizza Friiiiiidaaaay!!! To be honest we order our pizza mostly-but I’m not a huge fan of the pizza in our area. Every now and then we make pizza from home, but this year I’ve been getting in the kitchen like crazy, and am finally ready to go for it on making some different options (at least for us adults). How have you never pan fried a pizza??? That’s our go-to! We’ll take it straight out of the box and pan fry it when we order- it makes the cheese so gooey and the crust so crisp-really there’s nothing like it! The fig jam prosciutto pizza looks delectable, and the spinach artichoke with cheesy bread crust…heavenly! Carmelized onion on pizza is a big hell yes for me! I LOVE onion. I am a huge fan of flatbreads, and that honey pizza flatbread looks incredible. I think that will be the first one to try. What’s not to love about the grilled peach Naan? That one is at the top of my list.
    Question: do you always make your pizza dough from scratch? Or are there any ready made dough options that taste amazing? I’ve heard rave reviews about Trader Joe’s pizza dough. Also do you get creative and add herbs or spices to your dough, or is it all about the sauce for you? I need all the tips and tricks if I’m going to do this right, lol. I’m an all in kind of gal! There’s a cute little pizza oven from World Market on my wish list, and I’ve put off getting it because we haven’t gone the homemade route often…these recipes though…I may just have a pizza oven by the end of the summer. Haha! Last question, and it’s a big one: pizza stone or straight on the oven rack? We’re a divided camp in this house, and I’ll give you one guess as to who is all about the pizza stone (hint: it isn’t me). Maybe you should do a post about the necessities of making pizza at home-complete with one of your sliders of products that are helpful for making pizza (indoors or out). You know I’m here for it all-home decor or not. There’s an entire section in my recipe book devoted to your recipes, and they’re all labeled with your name-safe to say it doesn’t bother me at all when you switch things up! Peggi, your garden sounds like a treasure trove of fresh goodness. Cheers to the weekend ladies!! Have the loveliest time of it! Xoxo

      I know!! I can’t believe I’ve never pan fried a pizza. It’s definitely happening… maybe this coming Friday. I’m also all about the caramelized onion- any sweet pizza is a good one in my book. Ha! I hardly ever make my dough from scratch (probably 10% of the time). I always buy the Trader Joe’s crust! They have two options: original and a garlic butter… we usually do the garlic one. It’s just so much easier and tastes the same as my homemade dough. I want a pizza oven so badly! I think when we finally renovate and rework out backyard someday, we’ll probably put one in. Right now we use a pizza stone in the Green Egg. It gives it a wood fired taste and look. You made my day with your recipe book :) I try to only share the food that we REALLY like. I hope your weekend was filled with relaxing, fun, sunshine, and pizza!! xo
