Two Pizzas

Pitta Perfect Pizza

Set yourselves up with our family friendly pitta pockets, which will melt in your mouth. Buy some large pitta bread and dash on your favourite toppings for an alternative pizza base recipe for you and the kids!

The thin base is a carb-friendly option, and takes the heat off trying to make your own pizza dough. It’s fun for the whole family!

If pitta isn’t your thing, then you can get even more creative and use naan bread as your base.

This thicker option will hold all of your favourite toppings and give you a crunchy and alternative pizza crust. You can even make your own pillow-like naan bread with added herbs and spices to bring another level of flavour to your guests’ mouths.

Veggie Vibes

Maybe you have a vegetarian in the house? Or maybe you just want to try something different, don’t fret, we’ve got heaps of vegetarian-based pizza ideas for you!

A cauliflower base is the new trendy thing. Its ease and impeccable taste is second to none, when matched with your favourite healthy toppings. For crust lovers, don’t stress, cauliflower holds together really well, so there’s plenty of crunchiness to go around.

Just like cauliflower, a zucchini base can provide an excellent alternative pizza base recipe. It’s a low carb alternative and can thrust your thin, green pizza base into the spotlight.

It’s simple to make, just add your shredded zucchini into a bowl with flour, garlic powder, oregano, basil, salt, eggs and cheeses. We promise that this one will not disappoint.

If you want to get extra creative, a mushroom base is also an excellent way to get a health kick and still indulge in a few slices on a weekend evening at home. Portobello mushroom caps are the perfect size and shape for your pizza base. Just remove the inside ribbing and grill the mushroom. Then with a tablespoon, just add some red marinara sauce and other fancy toppings. Then, just pop it back on the grill for the perfect melting treat!

Superb Slices

Remember the old fashioned panini? Well think that, but like a pizza. A baguette can do the trick for the perfect alternative pizza crusts that will support your loaded toppings.

A pizza baguette is simple to make! Simply chop the baguette in half, lay down some red sauce, sprinkle some cheese and then add your favourite toppings before placing it on the grill.

If you’re after some extra flavour, then a garlic bread base can also suffice! Vertically slice your garlic bread into tiny slices and then customise each piece with fresh toppings. They’re easy for the kids and barely make any mess in the kitchen too.

If you’re all about crust in your house, then a long slice of Turkish bread is a great idea for an alternative pizza crust. Their pillow-like texture is utterly delicious, and large enough to feed the whole family too!

Something Different

If you like experimenting in the kitchen, then we’ve got you covered. Try a new kind of healthy base that also brings out the best flavours. These pizza bases are best suited with other tomato-free pizza toppings.

Polenta is an underrated cornmeal dish that can be a suitable contender for an alternative pizza base recipe. Just add some boiling water over some polenta, along with some salt and cheese for a low calorie surprise.

Also, why not give your favourite seedling a go? Quinoa is a nutritious grain that works with nearly any pizza topping. The key to this base is to rinse the quinoa very well, and leave it to soak overnight. Then bake the base the following day and you’re good to go! You can even mould the crusts to your desire.

If you’re still keen on a traditional pizza base, well why not try our surprising pizza dough recipes? These ideas will blow you away, and keep everyone’s dietary needs fulfilled.
