Calling All Pizza Lovers!

If there’s one food that’s sure to please a crowd (especially one including kids), it’s—you guessed it!—pizza. And it’s such a versatile meal: You can serve it for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even dessert.

At 40NORTH Restaurants’ Italian neighborhood bistro, Piattino, located in Mendham New Jersey,, our executive chef Kevin Felice takes traditional Neapolitan style pizzas and transforms them into modern day classics. The Picante Pollo Di Buffalo is created with braised chicken, gorgonzola, stone-fired new potatoes, caramelized onions, Mozzerella di Bufala and our signature buffalo sauce. It’s delicious! If you have a sweet tooth then our Nutella Pizza with strawberries and fresh whipped cream is a sweet pie you will love.

Here are some other great twists on the traditional pie that you can try at home with your family:

Chicken and raspberry pizza

Combine sweet and savory flavors, and you have a hit meal. This recipe is similar to the Hawaiian version (ham and pineapple). You can make the dough from scratch—or just pick some up at the supermarket. Throw on some fresh raspberries, grated mozzarella, pizza sauce and chopped roasted chicken (even last night’s leftovers), and bon appetit.

Rocky road pizza

This decadent recipe combines Nutella, miniature marshmallows, chopped smoked almonds and chocolate chips. Simply spread the Nutella on individual pizzas, then sprinkle the goodies on top. Everyone will be begging for seconds!

Mexican pizza

If your family likes their food a bit spicy, this might be the pizza for you. It features chili-spiced black bean puree, tomatoes, olives, shredded lettuce, low-fat Jack cheese, and low-fat sour cream. You could even serve it to friends, since it has a gourmet feel to it.

Breakfast pizza

Yes, you can eat pizza for breakfast! This recipe’s main ingredients are eggs, a few slices of bacon, grated Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses, minced chives and pizza dough. It’s quick and delicious—and a great way to start your day.

Pizza del Papa (butternut squash and smoked mozzarella pizza)

This recipe is so delicious that it was served to Pope John Paul II! It’s a good time to whip this one up, since butternut squash is in season. The recipe is a bit more involved, but it’s healthy—the pizza is topped with smoked mozzarella, butternut squash, zucchini and bell peppers.
