How do you add a fresh twist to a classic dish that's been around for centuries? Well, when the dish in question is pizza, that's quite a tall order. You can always try out new toppings or use new ingredients for the crust, but for the most part, pizza is still pizza - no matter the constituents. So, how do you truly add variation to pizza?
Here's what you do: combine the best elements of pizza with pasta and bake it in a large dish. In essence, you'll be creating a pizza casserole.
Pro tip: Remember that the perfect pizza is the one that accommodates to your personal tastes. Don't you like bell peppers or onion? Not a fan of pepperoni? Get creative with the toppings and tailor the baked pizza. Try tomato slices and basil for a classic Margherita. Add blue cheese to the mozzarella and Parmesan to create a 3-cheese baked pizza.
