They say there's no such thing as bad pizza, and after perusing Brit + Co's best pizza recipes, we'd have to agree. We like to think of pizza as a blank slate. The basic formula of crust, sauce, and toppings remains the same, but there are so many variables that we never get tired of the stuff. You really can't go wrong with options ranging from dessert pizzas
to deep dish pies
cooked in cast iron skillets. The next time your craving strikes, check out one of Brit + Co's best original pizza recipes.
15 Minute Pizza:
There's only one thing to do when the craving for pizza strikes. Whip up one of these 15-minute baddies and get ready for total satisfaction.
Cast-Iron Skillet Pizza:
Cooking pizza in your cast-iron skillet gives you the ultimate fluffy-yet-crispy crust. If you let some cheese sprinkle over the edge of the dough, you'll get the most perfectly browned bits to munch on.
Grilled Kale Pesto + Corn Pizza:
Most home ovens don't get hot enough to give you the authentic flavor of pizza cooked in a brick oven. That's why the grill, which can reach much higher temperatures, is the secret to making the best crispy, slightly smokey pies at home.

We all know that the toppings are the best part of any pizza. Keep things gluten-free and topping-heavy with this surprisingly healthy recipe.
