The part that usually scares folks away from making their own pizza is the dough — it’s not as scary as it sounds. Actually, it’s not scary at all. (And there’s always the option of buying it pre-made from your local pizzeria or grocery store if you just can’t deal.) Once that part is taken care of, it’s all about the toppings, which is where you can let your creativity shine. Anything goes.
We’ve gathered 30 pizza recipes to get you started, but these are just suggestions — use them as a jumping off point for your own individualized pizza greatness.

When most people think of slow cookers, they think of slow cooked meat, like beef stews, pulled pork or ragu. Your slow cooker isn’t just a meat machine, however. It’s a perfect vessel for cooking up vegetarian soups, chili or mac and cheese. You can make everything from mashed potatoes to dulce de leche in your slow cooker, so why don’t you? You can even steam food in our slow cooker, we recently discovered. It’s the easiest, most effective way we know to draw out deep flavors and produce effortlessly succulent dishes, be they meat-heavy or completely meat-free. The time to get down with your slow cooker is now. Here are 52 recipes to try out!

When it comes to dessert, the HuffPost Taste editors have got you covered. Between chocolate brownies, homemade ice cream, chocolate chip cookies, layer cakes and fruit pies, we got dessert on our minds all day long. (And this is not an overstatement.) You could even say that we’re somewhat of experts when it comes to all things sugar — at least in terms of knowing the best recipes. And so, we thought it only fair to take our dessert knowledge and share it with you.
We’ve put together a collection of the 50 best dessert recipes you can find across all of our favorite food blogs. We’re warning you: these desserts are epic. You will not be able to resist them.
Virtually any Crock Pot recipe will fill your heart and stomach with happiness, but these 19 recipes will give you peace of mind, too. Every single one is good for you, tasty and worthy of saving for tomorrow’s lunch.
When it comes to making a quick and nutritious breakfast, eggs are the obvious choice. They’re easy to make, cheap and will keep you full until it’s time for lunch. What more could you want from your breakfast?
But just because eggs are easy doesn’t mean that you should be making the same recipe every day. Especially when there are so many options. Sure, scrambled is good from time to time, and poached is lovely, but missing out on Eggs Benedict, frittatas and breakfast pizzas is an injustice to yourself that you need not commit.
We’re here to help — with 40 new ways to make your eggs, including some classics.
We know you’ve already mastered how to make the perfect chocolate chip cookie, the giant skillet cookie, and recipes that taste like cookie dough, so we set out to find some recipes that truly showcase the chocolate chip itself. From cakes to bars and everything in between, check out some of our favorites.
The most classic panini are stuffed with pesto chicken and mozzarella, and those are great, but it’s just the beginning.

No, “one pot” does NOT mean that you boil your pasta in a pot, drain it, and cook your sauce in the same pot. It means you literally throw all the ingredients in one pot — pasta, sauce and all — and cook it all at once. Do you know what that means? Fewer steps, and so little clean up. Consider your weeknights saved.
Avocado toast is rich like buttered toast — only heftier, silkier and yes, even richer.

But if you feel like getting creative, we have found 16 recipes to help you take your already amazing meal up a notch or two.
Basically, everything and anything you can imagine can be cooked on the grates of a grill — often times with amazing results. Salads are tastier when grilled first. Steaks, lamb chops and fish make so much more sense on the grill. Even desserts get a little more interesting when charred.
If you don’t own a grill, now just might be the time to invest. But don’t take our word for it, take a look at the 50 all-time best grilling recipes and you’ll see what we mean.
Anyone who knows anything knows that peanut butter is the best food on the planet. It’s the greatest filling for a sandwich, perfectly offsetting the sweetness of jam and fluff. It’s the star of the most delicious candy known to man (ahem, Reese’s). And, it’s chocolate’s best friend. Not to mention how irresistible it is all on its own, straight from the jar.
Behold, the 99 recipes every peanut butter lover needs in their life if they want to experience the best existence possible.
