Pizza: the ultimate, universally agreed upon comfort food. From traditional Neapolitan and giant cheesy New York style to Chicago deep dish, we’ve never met a pizza we didn’t like – even bad pizza is good pizza. If you’ve been stress-baking at home, you’ll be thrilled to know that the base ingredients you’re using – yeast, sugar, salt, and flour – are the basis for most pizzas.

If you want to try your hand at a homemade version, these five recipes include versions beyond the traditional. They’re also easy to make and insanely delicious. The best part? You can customize these pizzas to your heart’s desire using the ingredients you already have in your pantry.

Traditional Pizza

If you’re in the mood for traditional pizza, Tasty’s recipe can’t be beat. The title of video, below, says it all, but more than that, this recipe is simple to replicate and the dough is mixed by hand, which means you don’t need any fancy equipment in order to march to your kitchen and start making it circa now. It also includes different topping variations for inspiration.

Keto Pizza

We’re already huge fans of “fathead” pizza, so it should come as no surprise that it makes an appearance on this list. With a base of cheese, mixed with almond flour and egg, keto-friendly pizza couldn’t be easier to whip up at home, with no special equipment required.

Dairy-Free Pizza

A dairy-free pizza is ideal for vegans and lactose-intolerant people alike, and has the added benefit of being really easy to make – as long as you have some vegan mozzarella cheese on hand. Fortunately, this kind of item is usually stocked at local grocers, like Kibsons. Our preferred recipe comes from Minimalist Baker, with options that include a gluten-free dough.

Puff Pastry Pizza

Color us shocked that you can turn puff pastry into pizza, but it makes sense. The light, flaky dough makes for a great base, and the pre-made stuff you can buy at any supermarket rules out any guesswork. This recipe came to us by way of Food Network’s Ree Drummond – a.k.a. The Pioneer Woman – and has won rave reviews for its fast prep time and the crust’s pleasant texture.

Pizza Bagels

After binge-watching the Gourmet Makes series with Claire Saffitz, we got really hung up on one episode in particular. Now, the recipe that Saffitz tackles is too complicated for us to try at home; she made her own itty bitty bagels using ingredients that aren’t exactly common in our kitchens. However, it did inspire the idea to make our own using pre-made bagels, and it’s a recipe from Kevin & Amanda that we’re turning to.
