Alternatives to Traditional Pizza

Sharing is caring!

Does your family love to have once a week homemade pizza night? Maybe you play games and watch movies and it is a weekly tradition?

Do you love pizza but get tired of the same ol’, same ol’ round pizza thing?

Have a house full of people who all like different things on their pizza and need a way to make it easier to personalize?

Wanting to try something new?

Here is a list of some of my favorite alternatives to traditional pizza.

MckMama’s Pizza Pockets

Homemade Pizza Pockets by MckMama– love to make these for lunch! Fast and simple!

Pizza Roll by an awesome site called Grocery Shop for Free. This is a great way to hide healthy things in your pizza- like a layer of spinach!

Pizza Wheels by a sweet little site called a little bit of everything. Kids love these and they are perfect for get-togethers.

English Muffin Pizza by a site called My Wooden Spoon. Great way to make personalizing pizza easy!

Bacon and Egg Bagel Pizza by Kraft- what an awesome breakfast pizza idea that is individual for all of your little ones.

Crystal & Co. french bread pizza. Yum!

French Bread Pizza I make my own version of this all the time. It is an awesome lunch idea when all the kids are home during the summer and is a super quick week night dinner idea for a night you need to get dinner done fast. A whole loaf of french bread will make four nice size servings that make personalizing easy!
