69 Inventive Pizza Dishes

These Non-Traditional Meal Ideas Celebrate National Pizza Day

— February 9, 2016 — Lifestyle
National Pizza Day is the perfect time to try out some highly creative and slightly unusual pizza pie recipes. While traditional pepperoni pizza is often a party favorite, there are many other ways to enjoy this dish.

Casual eateries and food brands are now offering innovative crust options such as pretzel-styled and bacon-infused. While Domino's recently created a unique pizza crust stuffed with peanut sauce, competitors have opted for breakfast-specific pizzas, healthy quinoa pizzas and even gluten-free pies as well.

In addition to these savory dishes, there are also many dessert pizzas that are ideal for satisfying those with a sweet tooth. Whether it's a cookie dough pizza pie topped with banana slices or a macaroni pizza quesadilla, celebrate National Pizza Day with one of these non-traditional meal ideas.
