Gourmet Pizza Recipes

OK, if you want gourmet pizza recipes, then look no further. This butter garlic herb pizza is gourmet in your own kitchen!

Ingredients Pizza Dough

Making pizza dough used to scare me. But, you’re going to use just a few ingredients for this pizza dough.

I look back now and wonder why! I mean it’s just so easy to make a wonderful crust without much trouble at all. It’s worth all the extra work because the flavors you have once you build your pizza are simply divine!

However, don’t get me wrong. Sometimes I don’t have time to make the dough, so what do I do? I use a refrigerated pizza dough product. 

Easy Pizza Recipes

To take out one step of making your own dough, then I’d recommend you check out Wewalka pizza doughs. I discovered this product quite by ‘accident’ in the grocery store, tried it, and now I’m hooked.

Here’s another great pizza I made using their thin and crispy dough! I call it the holiday Italian pizza because I can escape to Tuscany without packing my bags! 

Pizza with Mozzarella

To me, pizza isn’t pizza unless it’s pizza with mozzarella. You can use pre-grated mozzarella. That makes the process easy. You can grate your own mozzarella. Or you might try to the mozzarella small balls. I love using these on pizza. 

How to Make Garlic Butter Sauce

It’s not difficult learning how to make garlic butter sauce. It’s essential melted butter and garlic. You can use a garlic paste or to make it easier garlic powder or granules. Yes, there can be other steps in making the garlic butter sauce, but for something simple like a garlic pizza sauce, this might just be your ticket.  

Garlic Pizza Sauce

Garlic pizza sauce, easy to make, can become the base for your pizza. Rather than using a marinara or maybe a basil pesto, use a simple garlic pizza sauce like this one from Baked by Rachel!

Garlic Herb Butter Sauce

To my garlic butter sauce I add dried Italian seasoning. Oh, yes, this takes the pizza over the top with flavor! Then we’ll do fresh herbs, too!

This pizza can be made on an outdoor grill using a pizza stone, and you’ll get a hint of smokiness. Awesome!

Yield: One Pizza

From start to finish this butter garlic herb pizza is worth every ounce of elbow grease you exert! Homemade, fresh, and absolutely divine!


  • Preheat oven to 400
  • 2 envelopes (1/4 oz. each) fast rise yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water,  110-115 degrees, divided
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 2 Tbl. oil, canola or olive oil
  • 2 1/2 to 3  cups flour, all purpose, divided
  • Cooking Spray
  • 6 Tbl. butter, unsalted
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. dried Italian seasoning 
  • 2 cups grated cheese, can use an Italian pizza blend, mozzarella balls
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped herbs, basil, chives, oregano, Italian parsley
  • Roasted Peppers (store bought, drained and sliced)
  • Olives (green and black), chopped or sliced
  • Pepperoni, diced


Put 1/2 cup of the warm water in a mixing bowl.  Add the yeast and whisk in.  Cover with a clean dish towel and let it sit about 10 minutes until it gets foamy. Add the salt, sugar and oil and whisk in. Add the remaining warm water and start working in about 1/4 cup flour at a time until you've added about 2 cups. Make sure it's blended well stirring about 5 minutes with a wooden spoon (yes, you'll get a great upper arm workout). The dough will be sticky and gooey.

Form into a ball in the bowl. Give the top of the dough a coating of cooking spray.  Cover with a clean dish towel and put in a cold oven, turn on the light and let the dough rise until it's about double in size.  Remove and punch down. Coat a large surface with the remaining flour (you may need more as you work and knead the dough). Turn the dough out and knead well until the dough is no longer stick but elastic and smooth. Cut into 4 equal pieces and flatten out into random pizza shapes~~the shapes don't have to be round...let it be natural and organic.

Place the dough on a parchment paper covered cookie or pizza sheet. Melt the butter in a small saucepan, add the herbs and blend well.  Using a pastry brush, coat each of the pieces of flattened dough.

Add equal amounts of cheese, fresh herbs to each pizza.  Add additional toppings as wanted!  Bake in a preheated 400 oven for about 15-18 minutes or until the edges are crispy.  Remove and slice with a pizza cutter. Make sure no one robs your pizza!
