When it comes to pizza topping combinations, the sky is the limit. In addition to being able to order favorites like pepperoni and sausage, many people are in search of their family's next go-to combo. However, it isn't always easy to think outside of the box. Here are three custom pizza combinations you might love.
1. Alfredo Sauce, Bacon, and Mushrooms
If you love pizza but you have grown tired of traditional marinara sauce bases, consider mixing things up by trying Alfredo sauce as the base. This cream-based sauce features parmesan cheese to create a truly smooth, mild flavor.
When topped with mozzarella cheese, bacon, and mushrooms, this classic white pizza will make your mouth water. To add more nutrients to the pizza, ask about adding fresh spinach. Since this pizza is a more mild take on traditional pizza, make sure to have crushed red pepper flakes handy for the spicy food lovers in your life.
2. Ranch, Chicken, and Hot Sauce
Another excellent flavor combination is a pizza topped with ranch, grilled chicken, and hot sauce. This mouth-watering combination is reminiscent of a wing dinner, with spicy notes from the hot sauce, smooth flavors from the ranch, and chicken to make the entire meal very filling.
If you order this combination, make sure you feel comfortable with the hot sauce levels on the pizza. If you are skittish about hot sauce, ask for the sauce on the side or add a splash on your own. For a fun touch, consider serving carrot and celery sticks alongside additional freshly prepared ranch dressing to make the occasion really feel like a night out at a fun wing place.
3. Barbecue Sauce, Pineapple, and Sausage
For the flavor of the Hawaiian islands, consider asking your favorite custom pizza place if they carry barbecue sauce, pineapple, and pork sausage. When barbecue sauce — especially a sweet, smoky barbecue sauce — is drizzled over a pizza crust, topped with mozzarella cheese, and finished with fresh pineapple and caramelized pork sausage, you can enjoy a sweet, flavorful take on pizza like you have never had before. Serve your Hawaiian pizza alongside tropical juice or some cut tropical fruit to really round out the meal.
If your mouth is watering for tasty pizza, look for a place that designs custom pies in your area. Ask them what the locals order, and don't be afraid to try something a little different. You never know — by ordering something truly unique, you may just find your new favorite kind of pizza, which can be an incredible experience.
