Happy National Pizza Month! Enjoy these pizza recipes for a fun time with family and friends.
Autumn has begun, so it’s time for warm, savory recipes full of flavor and comfort. You can find both of those elements in our pizza recipes. Pizza is a perennial favorite, but it’s especially good for cool fall days as a party appetizer for football games, or as a fun family dinner. Pizza features comforting carbs and savory cheese that are a canvas for an array of toppings, all courtesy of the agriculture industry in the U.S. From the wheat in the crust and the tomatoes in the sauce to the dairy in the cheese and the meats and produce toppings, pizza is a testament to our country’s diverse ag industry. Find some of our favorite pizza recipes below, and try one or all in celebration of National Pizza Month this October!
Pizza Recipes to Fight Autumn’s Chill
Breakfast pizza is one of our favorite pizza recipes. This delicious recipe from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ Fresh from Florida website pays homage to the eggs, meats, cheeses, and vegetables found in a traditional Italian Frittata. Putting it together is easy-peasy for any morning when you use premade pizza dough or crust. This pizza recipe pairs eggs, milk, and sharp cheddar cheese with breakfast meats of your choice—bacon, sausage, etc.—and tasty tomatoes and zucchini for a breakfast pizza that hits all the major food groups and starts your day off right.

Fall is still grilling season, and this pizza recipe found on Farm Flavor is just as at-home on the grill as are hotdogs and hamburgers. Roll out your dough and top it with tangy tomatoes, garlic, savory mozzarella and parmesan cheeses, and flavorful basil for a pizza that has all the taste and flavor of the creations coming out of the brick oven of a Michelin-starred restaurant.

The combination of blueberries and cheese makes for pizza recipes that seem to come from Heaven. There are many tasty blueberry pizza recipes on a blog post by Blueberries from Florida, a website of the Florida Blueberry Grower’s Association, but the one featuring blueberries, feta cheese, and honey-caramelized onion over Naan bread is about more than we can stand. Treat your taste buds and try it tonight! Find the recipe here.
