Pesto pizza

Our great state may be known as an enclave for traditional pizza, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a few places doing some unique things. We have some specialty pizzas you can order that stand out in New Jersey for their selection of toppings. One of the best ways to do this is to change one of the foundations of pizza, which is the sauce. While it’s usually a type of marinara, there are a bunch ways to do it, like olive oil as a substitute, which is how we make our famous Clam Pie. Here are few interesting sauce substitutes.

Italian Options

If you want to keep it focused onItalian food, pesto is a great option. You can make your own or get a jarred version that you can easily spread on dough and add cheese and toppings to. Olive oil and garlic are another great option that adds some real flavor and texture to a pizza. This is a great option if you’re planning on putting your pizza on the grill.

Buffalo chicken pizza

American Favorites

Our New Jersey pizza place offers some options that take classic American entrees and turns them into pizza. Our buffalo chicken pizza uses wing sauce and some blue cheese to create an irresistible flavor combo. The pizza dough helps cut down on the spiciness of the sauce. The same goes for our BBQ chicken pizza. If you want a little southwestern flair, you can create a taco pizza that subs out traditional sauce for salsa and sour cream.

Worldly Influences

If you want to take things in a completely different direction, there are a number of different sauces you can use as a basis for pizza. Here’s a list of a few we think could be interesting to try out:

  • Curry
  • Thai Chili
  • Balsamic Glaze
  • Sweet Hoisin
  • Chimichurri
  • Béchamel
  • Hummus
