Alex Guarnaschelli's new pizza recipe is extra crispy and delicious - SheKnows

Homemade pizza is one of life’s greatest joys. Especially one topped with fresh ingredients and tons of cheese! But the worst part is the amount of prep and bake time these usually take (it’s so much easier to order delivery sometimes). Fortunately, Chef Alex Guarnaschelli has the perfect solution: no-bake pizzas!

The chef posted a recipe for her Baked Ricotta, Tomato & Basil Pizzas on Mother’s Day, and it doesn’t need to be baked in the oven. How cool is that?

“I love how easy this recipe is to put together,” she captioned the photo of the delicious pizza on Instagram. “Just roll out the dough, sear it until crispy and put it on. No oven needed.” Astonishing!

To make the pizzas, you’ll need prepared pizza dough, ricotta, Parmesan cheese, halved cherry tomatoes, basil leaves, balsamic vinegar, and more. You start by rolling the dough into two loose balls, cover with a tea towel and let it rest. Then roll them out to 8 inch round sizes and cook them in a skillet with olive oil.

Pull them out and cover with the rest of the ingredients. For an extra kick, add Pizzeria Salt, made with oregano, Parmesan, red pepper flakes, and more.

This recipe yields two medium pizzas for a total of 4-6 servings.

We’re not the only ones who make it look delicious. One person commented “Oooooooooweeeeeeeee!!!!🔥🔥🔥” Another wrote, “Why do I feel like this will be on my menu all summer? Aperol spritz on the side 😋.”

This recipe was also featured on the Sunday episode of “The Kitchen” on Food Network. Chef Alex, mother of Ava, 13, with ex Brandon Clark, wrote on Twitter, “It’s Mother’s Day today on ‘The Kitchen’ and I’m making a classic flatbread that I want Ava to make for me. My mom would have loved it too. A special day.”

Make this deliciously crispy pizza for your mom or for yourself — it’s so easy, you don’t need a special occasion!
