Pizza is always a classic, right?! Who doesn’t love a good pizza on Friday night when it’s time to celebrate the weekend. It’s definitely one of my favorite weekend meals!

Today, I’m going to share how easy it is to make an upscale version of pizza. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good pepperoni or all cheese pizza, but sometimes we need to switch it up. Our homemade version is going to rival some of your favorite restaurant pizzas!

Pizza Party

One thing I love about pizza is that you can change it up based on your dietary needs. We use a gluten free crust alternative. I love this gluten free pizza crust from Bob’s Red Mill or PaleOMG’s take on gluten free pizza crust. You could also omit the cheese and add more toppings for a vegan friendly version, or even use vegan cheese. For my keto friends, try a cauliflower pizza crust.

Prep Once, Eat All Week

Do I have any friends out there who hate to cook? Well then, this one’s for you! The pork and fig pizza is part of our part of our prep once, eat all week series. If you’re new to this concept, go check out my Instant Pot shredded pork shoulder recipe. The basic idea is that we prep our protein on the weekend, and then use it to make three different meals throughout the week.

The pork and fig pizza is just one of the three recipes. We also have crispy pork gyros, as well as spicy pork carnitas bowls. All three of these meals have such a unique flavor combination. You won’t even be able to tell you are eating the same protein all week long. If you hate cooking and need a quick fix, you’re going to want to try this out!

    Made it tonight for dinner! (Forgot to buy the rosemary it still very good!). It was a bit too sophisticated for my youngest, but that came as no surprise. Used a g-free crust. Would be nice to cut into smaller pieces for an appetizer when company visits!

    I love the idea of pizza as an appetizer, esp fancy ones like this. It turned out amazing and th crust was better gluten free than with wheat flour. Who knew ? ❤️
