4 Gourmet pizza recipes

From SheKnows Australia
There’s nothing like a delicious carb-heavy meal to take the edge off a miserable winter’s day! We've rounded up four easy, yummy gourmet pizza recipes that will put a smile on your dial, regardless of how cold and gloomy the weather is outside.

Gourmet pizza

The base

The easiest way to create your pizza base is to cheat! Homemade pizza bases are delicious, no doubt, but they can also be time consuming and messy to prepare.

Instead, buy some white or wholemeal pita wraps from the bread aisle of your local supermarket and use them as your pizza base. Because they're thin, the edges crisp up beautifully in the oven, giving your pizza that authentic thin-crust taste.
