Make Your Own Self-Rising Flour

Make Your Own Self-Rising Flour

The widespread flour shortages have created a situation where we’re grateful just to get our hands on whatever we can get. Whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, cake flour, whatever bag is left on the bare shelves, we’ve probably just grabbed it and been happy we could get anything at all.

If you are used to baking with self-rising flour but can’t find any, the good news is that it is really,...

Why You Should Order Your Pizza 'Uncut'

Why You Should Order Your Pizza 'Uncut'

Since dining out (my favorite hobby) isn’t an option right now, ordering delivery has become something of an event, especially ordering pizza. And, since there’s not much else going on, there’s a lot riding on those pizzas, happiness-wise. This is why I’m ordering my pizzas un-sliced.

Where to Find Deals on National Pizza Day

Where to Find Deals on National Pizza Day

I’ll be honest: I’m not a fan of food “holidays.” But National Pizza Day? That’s one worth celebrating, because pizza is great. In fact, there are few foods I find more delicious than pizza. So I invite you all to celebrate along with me on February 9.

Now, don’t go thinking you’re going to get free pies everywhere you look this Sunday. Life is simply not that good. But there are a few...

Protect Your Mouth From Hot Pizza With Slices of Mortadella

Protect Your Mouth From Hot Pizza With Slices of Mortadella

As an eager eater, I burn my mouth quite often. Pizza is particularly dangerous, as cheese never cools as quickly as you want it to. (Also, pizza just tastes best scorching hot! Facts don’t care about your feelings!) If—like me—you are prone to such injuries, I have a solution: Drape cold slices of mortadella over your hot slice of pizza.

How to Obtain High-Heat Results in Your Non-Commercial Oven

How to Obtain High-Heat Results in Your Non-Commercial Oven

The difference between restaurant food and homemade is widest when extreme heat is required. Commercial ovens are designed to reach the high temperatures needed for blistered pizza and crusty artisan bread; home ovens just aren’t. But even if you’ve got an ancient, wimpy rental,

clever rack positioning can trick your oven into acting hotter than it is. Get to Know Your Oven Better and Never...

How to Make Your Own Stuffed Crust Pizza

How to Make Your Own Stuffed Crust Pizza

The greatest gift that home cooking has to give is happiness, and few things make people happier than a slice of pizza. So, on this National Pepperoni Pizza Day, I’d like to talk about just how easy it is to make pizza at home—even a fully loaded, stuffed-crust monstrosity.

Whatever anxiety or skepticism you have about homemade pizza, I promise that it doesn’t have to be like that. It doesn’t...

An Engineer Explains Why You Should Always Order the Larger Pizza

An Engineer Explains Why You Should Always Order the Larger Pizza

In general, the more pizza we have the better, so get ready for some good news. It is almost always better value to order larger-sized pizzas, according to math (well, an engineer). Here’s why.

Over at NPR’s Planet Money blog, Quoctrung Bui explains:

One day last year, an engineer and I went to a pizza place for lunch. The engineer told me he wasn’t very hungry, but he said he was going to get...

How Much Money You Save Buying a Large Pizza Instead of a Small

How Much Money You Save Buying a Large Pizza Instead of a Small

We’re big fans of math and pizza here at Lifehacker, so you probably already know that it’s always a better deal to

buy a large pizza instead of a smaller pie.

Groupon could not merely rest with the knowledge that, based on surface area, a 10” pizza is almost twice as expensive as a 16” pizza. The deals site took it a step further, calculating the cost per person for pies based on surface...

How to Choose Quality Cheese for Your Pizza

How to Choose Quality Cheese for Your Pizza

Besides barbecue, few foods insight as much impassioned shouting as pizza. Being from the Southern United States, I feel no allegiance to any particular style, which is nice because I can enjoy them all (with pineapple). But pizza is comprised of three main components—crust, sauce, and cheese, and where crust is divisive, cheese can be unifying (maybe even healing?).

How to Choose Quality...

Pizza Hut’s Book-It Program Is Still Around

Pizza Hut’s Book-It Program Is Still Around

As a bookish, curious kid growing up in a rural, working class area in the 90s, my life revolved around three things: my soccer team, the library, and Pizza Hut. The latter two were intrinsically connected for reasons I will explain shortly (and the first certainly helped burn off the calorific aftereffects of the last). See, for six glorious months out of the year, I had access to the most...

Make Papa John's Garlic Butter Sauce With No Garlic and No Butter

Make Papa John's Garlic Butter Sauce With No Garlic and No Butter

It’s hard to separate a problematic figure from his art.

In the case of “Papa” John Schnatter, that art comes in the form of a garlic-flavored, buttery dipping sauce.

So if you want to get your hands on this savory sauce without having to support PJ’s by purchasing their “pizza,” Claire Lower has devised a recipe to make your very

own garlic sauce at home .

Using just a few ingredients, Claire...

Where to Get Discounted Pizza Today for National Pizza Day

It seems like there’s a day for everything now, and today is National Pizza Day. While I’d like to argue that pizza doesn’t need a day dedicated to celebrating it, I’m always up for a deal, especially on food, and there are a ton of them to be had to today on everyone’s favorite round meal.

Here’s a rundown of what a lot of the national chains are doing to celebrate the big day. Your local...

Order Free Pizza for Your Polling Place 

Happy election day! Everybody is hungry for democracy, which means they’re probably hungry for literal food, too. The voting lines this evening will be long and you might need sustenance. Why not order some pizza? You won’t even have to pay for it!

Pizza is as American as apple pie, but much easier to eat while standing. Pizza to the Polls is a non-profit that will deliver free pizza to any...

I'm Scott From Scott's Pizza Tours, and This Is How I Work

I'm Scott From Scott's Pizza Tours, and This Is How I Work

You can eat pizza for a living, if you’re good enough at it—and if you work hard and get to know everyone in the pizza business. Scott Wiener turned his love of pizza into Scott’s Pizza Tours, a growing business conducting food tours by foot and by bus in Manhattan. In this video episode of How I Work, we shadowed him for a day and learned how he chooses locations, trains tour guides, and...

This DIY Garlic Sauce Is Way Better Than Papa John's 

This DIY Garlic Sauce Is Way Better Than Papa John's 

Papa John does not make good pizza, but he does make an addictive garlic dipping sauce. In fact, some (Virginia and myself) would say it is the only item worth its salt on the menu, and it has a good bit of salt. If, like us, you are also a fan of the golden, garlicky sauce, but missed your opportunity to buy a giant jug of it, do not despair, friend. We have a recipe for you, and having a...

Turn Your Shredded Hash Browns Into Pizza Crust With a Waffle Iron

Turn Your Shredded Hash Browns Into Pizza Crust With a Waffle Iron

I’m a big fan of super crispy pizza crusts. Shredded hash browns provide that perfect base for a crispity, crunchity bottom of a breakfast or anytime pizza. All you need is a bag of frozen shredded hash browns and the almighty waffle iron.

This idea comes from Curls & Whey. The recipe calls for frozen hash browns, but you could also prepare and grate your own shredded potatoes (make sure the

Why You Need a Cast Iron Skillet For Homemade Pizza

Homemade pizza nerds are a passionate bunch; for a timid novice, the sheer amount of conflicting information available on various pizza-enthusiast boards is anything but encouraging. I’m here to tell you that you don’t need to build a backyard brick oven or even buy a stone to make great pizza—in fact, you probably already have everything you need.
