30 Creative Pizza Ideas for Your Next Pizza Night
Mix up your next family pizza night with one of the recipes on this list of creative pizza ideas! These kid-friendly homemade pizza recipes are sure to delight your family.
If you’re anything like my family, pizza night is a big deal! We set aside every other Friday night or Sunday night as family pizza night. My kids love helping to assemble their own pies, and my husband and I like to try creative and different ideas for ours.
You just gotta face it: pizza is delicious. But having the same type of pizza every pizza night can get old, fast. That’s why I was excited to find some new and creative pizza recipes for our own family.
There’s just something special about a homemade pizza versus a delivery one. While delivery might be easier, making a homemade pizza together as a family is always more fun! Whether we make one 100% from scratch, or just add to a store bought pizza, family pizza night has become one of our favorite traditions.
What Do You Need for a Pizza Night?
Part of the fun of family pizza night is creating your own pizza! For a great pizza night, you need a mix of ingredients, like different sauces, cheeses and of course, toppings!
You can buy a pre-made dough at the grocery store, make your own or even add toppings and extras to a cheap frozen pizza (my family does this all the time). I chop up all of our toppings before we get started and put them individual bowls to make it easy for little hands to help.
Here are a few great (and easy) topping ideas if you need a start place:
- Traditional pizza: pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, sausage
- Hawaiian pizza: pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, pineapple and ham
- Buffalo chicken pizza: pizza sauce, ranch dressing, chicken tossed in buffalo wing sauce and mozzarella cheese
- BBQ pizza: pizza sauce, mozarella cheese, chicken or pork tossed in buffalo wing sauce
- All the meats pizza: pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, sausage, ham, chicken and bacon
- Veggie lovers pizza: pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, mushrooms, green peppers, red onions
The options are really endless. The most important ingredient for family pizza night? FUN!
