There’s a tradition that my colleagues at Granthshala will miss out on newsroom pizza on election night this year, which is a fancy way of saying that the office will order dozens of pies for those working through the night as the votes come in. In turn from that, I was inspired to create my own version of election night pizza, combining it with elements of an all-day breakfast for those who were on long shifts and felt crazy after voting all night. Was doing.

To reheat the pizzas the next day, use a toaster oven or, better yet, put them in a pan over medium heat. Cover for a few minutes for the topping to heat up and then remove the bottom crust to finish so that it becomes crispy again.

As a bonus, I’ve also included a kid-friendly recipe for sweet pizza, which you can decorate with your favorite party-colored candies.

Dessert Party Pizza

Candy-topped pizzas aren’t new, but they’re fun to make and it’s something you don’t see at a local pizzeria. Brushing the dough with a seasoning butter gives regular pizza dough a slightly sweet edge so it compliments the toppings and spreads better. You can use jam, peanut butter, whatever dessert spread you want.
