1. Pizza Vesuvio

The real surprise with this pizza, topped with the works—artichokes, ham, ricotta and salami—is that part of it is folded over to form a calzone while the rest is left open-faced.

2. Bacon and Egg

Pizzas crowned with a sunny-side-up egg have become a new classic. But this one—topped with crisp bacon, crème fraîche, brie and mozzarella—has custardy scrambled eggs added for the last two minutes of baking. Brunch perfection. 

3. Caramelized Onion and Andouille

A mix of deeply flavorful caramelized onion and sun-dried tomatoes act as the sauce for this sausage-topped pizza. 

4. Squid and Aioli
