Pizza is one of those incredible Italian dishes that you can get in a multitude of ways. Whether you’re a meat-lover and prefer to add extra pepperoni with your sausage and bacon, or you’re more about the veggies like green peppers and mushrooms, Dalia’s is serving up many different types of pizza so you can enjoy it just the way you like it. Continue reading to learn more about all the ways to customize your pizza.

 

Vegetable Toppings

Did you know that traditional pizzas in Italy are only topped with vegetables? And have you noticed that there are always more vegetable options than any other topping? That’s because veggies are an underappreciated pizza topping. Most pizzerias don’t get creative enough in how they utilize veggies to give you an all new pizza experience. The ultimate way to customize a pizza and add layers of flavor is by topping it with a variety of veggies. Vegetables like crisp peppers, fresh tomatoes, or even jalapeños add texture to a perfectly baked crust and warm, melted cheeses. 

At Dalia’s we’ve created Papa’s Feta Spinach Pizza for those looking to enjoy the lighter side of Italian cuisine. Made with spinach, onion, tomato, and kalamata olives, this pizza is fresh and decadent with a Mediteranean feel. For an even healthier alternative, substitute olive oil for marinara sauce. Another fan favorite specialty pizza of ours is a twist on a popular appetizer – Papa’s Spinach Artichoke Dip, which features our homemade cream cheese dip sauce, spinach, artichokes, and parmesan cheese.

Much like how chicken is starting to introduce new types of pizza, vegetables have opened the door to a whole slew of new flavors. Whether you’re a vegetarian or fancy a healthier pizza alternative, vegetable toppings should be your starting point when customizing your pie.

 

Meat Toppings

Meat is a classic topping for American-style pizza. Traditional toppings include pepperoni, sausage, bacon, and even ham (aka Canadian bacon). Nowadays, chicken is rising as a popular meat topping on pizzas, and it’s often customized more to offer a completely new pizza flavor. 

For a bold new pizza flavor, create a delicious BBQ Chicken Pizza by substituting BBQ sauce, and topping it with some onions and cheese of your choice. For Italian food lovers, mix it up even more by opting for an Alfredo sauce rather than traditional marinara, add chicken, broccoli, artichokes, or even tomatoes for a delicious Chicken Alfredo Pizza. The options are endless as long as you let your imagination and stomach do the talking.

At Dalia’s Pizza, you can enjoy an array of specialty pizzas with all sorts of meat options ranging from chicken to pastrami.

 

Sauce

We’ve alluded to this already, but more and more pizza restaurants are starting to offer different sauce options for all new pizza flavors. We can all agree that marinara sauce is a classic, but sometimes it’s nice to mix it up a bit. All over the country, you can find pizza sauces such as buffalo sauce, BBQ sauce, ranch, alfredo sauce, olive oil, and many more. Some pizza lovers are even opting for no sauce on their pizzas.

 

Crust

Pizza crust – some hate it, some can’t get enough of it. Pizza crust is a defining characteristic for various types of pizza across America. Deep-dish pizza is a Chicago favorite, with a thick crust laid in a pan and built like a pie, whereas New York is famous for thinner pizza crusts. If you’re a true pizza-lover, there is no right or wrong crust option. Thin crust offers a nice crunch that’s the perfect complement to one or two-topping pizzas. On the other hand, thick crusts can be the ideal foundation for meaty toppings. Sometimes, a regular thickness with a nice bread crust you can dip into sauce is the perfect way to go. No matter what toppings and sauces you’re choosing, the crust is the starting point to a truly great pizza.
