How to eat pizza for every meal on National Pizza Day
Sometimes, pizza is all you need (for breakfast, lunch and dinner).
It’s finally February, dry old January is behind us and it’s T-minus seven days until the most carb-loaded date this side of Christmas (until Pancake Day comes along, of course). That’s right: the most hallowed of dough-munching days, National Pizza Day, is set to waddle its way into our lives on 9 February. But how to celebrate like you mean it? Well. You could eat a pizza (obviously). Or: you could eat MANY pizzas.
Like a challenge? Love a pizza? Excellent. Read on.
Round 1: The Breakfast Pizza
Because, what better way to start your day fresh and sprightly than by breaking your fast with a slice or two of the good stuff?
This pizza comes fully loaded with sausage, bacon and eggs to help kick things off in fittingly indulgent style.
See also: the misunderstood baked bean pizza (I, for one, still love you).
Round 2: Tomato Soup with Garlic Pizza Dough Bites
A lunchtime-appropriate ode to the traditional pizza pie, this tomato soup is comforting, tasty, and surprisingly easy to make.
Throw a couple of squidgy, garlicky dough bites into the mix and you’ve got yourself double the delectable-ness.
Round 3: Order a pizza
You’ve been cooking all day. Might as well take a load off and order a pizza.
Round 4: The Chocolate Pizza
A decadent end to a decadent day. Swap passata for Nutella, mozzarella for white chocolate, pepperoni for banana slices, and BAM – you’ve got yourself one last pizza-shaped hurrah.
Still in the mood for dough? You will when you see this baby emerge from the oven.
Bonus: you can use this recipe on 5 February too, because it’s World Nutella Day.
