Non-Traditional Crust Ideas For Your Next Pizza Party

Pizza has always been a classic treat and is often a go-to choice for parties and gatherings. However, sometimes the same old pizza options can be boring. If you're interested in shaking things up for your next pizza party, you might want to try some of the more unusual or non-traditional crust options to form the foundations for the pizzas you're ready to make. Here are a few choices that you can consider.


Roast a head of cauliflower, then put it in the food processor. Add an egg, a bit of olive oil, and enough flour to form a dough. You'll also want to add a quarter-teaspoon of salt and a half teaspoon of granulated garlic. Once it's all combined, you can spread it on an oiled pizza pan. Bake it for about 20 minutes at 375, then top it and bake it till the cheese melts.

Sweet Potato

You can create a versatile pizza crust from one medium roasted sweet potato. Take the skin off the sweet potato then cube it. Put the pieces in the food processor and add about half a cup of rolled oats, a quarter of a cup of parmesan cheese, an egg, and a little bit of garlic powder and salt. Blend it till it forms a dough. Spread the dough on the pizza pan, then bake it at 400 degrees for about a half hour or until the top is dry and cooked through. Then, you can top it and bake it as you like.

Vegetable Crust

You can create vegetarian pizzas by investing in some eggplant, zucchini, and portabello mushrooms. Take the stem out of the mushroom to form a cap. Slice the round vegetables thinly, approximately a quarter-inch thick. Then, top all of them with sauce, cheese, and any of your favorite toppings. Bake them at 400 degrees until the cheese is bubbly and the vegetable base is soft.

English Muffins

English muffin pizzas are some of the most fun to make, especially if you have children. Slice the English muffins in half, then place them on a baking sheet with the inside facing up. Spread sauce on each one, then top each of them as desired. You can use any toppings that you'd traditionally use on pizza. Bake them at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the cheese melts.

These are a few great ideas to make less-than-traditional pizza crusts. If you decide you're not ready to venture into these less-frequent options, you can also order from your local pizza delivery shop.

Learning More About Dining Out

When my family and I moved overseas, we realized that we were going to have to do something a little different for dinner. Because our new apartment was exceptionally small, I realized that there were some serious problems with the idea of eating at home each and every night. I wanted to make dining more comfortable for my kids, so we decided to start dining out most nights of the week. It was a fun adventure, and before we knew it, we found all kinds of great restaurants near our home. Check out this blog to learn more about dining out.
