Pizza might just be the greatest food ever created. It’s carbs, sauce and cheese, plus a variety of delicious toppings all combined in one dish!

Starting a pizza recipe with a delicious dough and scrumptious sauce is the key to a great pizza. I love experimenting making different pizza sauces. The Three Cheese Jalapeno Ranch sauce that I created for this Jalapeno Sausage Pizza is an all time favorite. But this Sriracha Pizza Sauce is now tied for first!

Growing up, one of my favorite pizza restaurants in Oklahoma was Hideaway Pizza. I would always order their “Maui Magic”, a pizza topped with pineapple chunks, mandarin oranges and Canadian bacon.

This recipe is my adaptation of that delicious pizza! In this version, I added homemade Sriracha pizza sauce and swapped out the Canadian bacon for prosciutto.

The spiciness of the sriracha pizza sauce pairs perfectly with the sweetness of the pineapple and mandarin oranges. If mandarin oranges on a pizza is just too weird for you, they can always be left off. Already have ham at home? Use that in place of the prosciutto.

But for the love of Sriracha, take a little time before preparing the pizza to make this sriracha pizza sauce! The recipe makes enough for 3 pizzas. Save extra sauce in the fridge or freezer to make delicious pizzas over and over!

I love pesto! All different kinds of pesto, sun dried tomato pesto, basil pesto and kale pesto!

I love tossing pesto with tortellini, stuffing it in chicken and adding it to potato salad.

The best part about pesto is how you can make an easy, flavorful meal with it in less than 30 minutes. I combined kale pesto with pasta, sun dried tomatoes and goat cheese to make this easy pesto spaghetti recipe in just 15 minutes!

I’ve made this recipe with both traditional spaghetti and corn spaghetti, to make the recipe gluten free. Both versions work great!

Rosemary Focaccia Bread

Baking homemade rosemary focaccia bread is easy, fun and delicious! This Italian bread recipe can be served as a side or appetizer. Or slice it up to make a delicious sandwich!

There’s really nothing better than the smell of fresh bread baking in the oven!

I love to bake up a couple loaves of rosemary focaccia bread on the weekend. One is served with Sunday family dinner, usually with Beef Ragu or Creamy Tortellini Soup.

And I save the other loaf for making sandwiches throughout the week. I mean, you could eat Rosemary Tri Tip French Dip Sandwiches on another type of bread. But why would you want to?

My Dad has been making this easy focaccia bread recipe for years. He always makes extra loaves to share with coworkers, friends and neighbors. It’s one of the most requested recipes he makes. Well, that and his Famous Captain Crunch Fried Chicken, of course!

Gluten Free General Tso’s Chicken

Gluten Free General Tso Chicken is easy to make in only 20 minutes! This recipe is healthy & even better than Chinese takeout with the most delicious General Tso sauce!

In the blogging world, I’d say that I’m most known for my recipes with buffalo sauce. But coming in at a close second are my gluten free Chinese recipes!

Around the same time I started blogging, my brother was diagnosed with celiac disease. He asked me to recreate some of his Chinese food favorites to make them gluten free.

Being the wonderful sister that I am (haha!) I obliged and created some of his favorite recipes. This Gluten Free Orange Chicken is his all-time favorite. But these recipes for Gluten Free Honey Chicken and Gluten Free General Tso Chicken, both come in at a close second!

Typically, general tso’s consists of battered, deep fried chicken thighs, covered in hoisin sauce. I made this recipe healthy and gluten free by lightly pan frying the chicken, instead of deep frying it. I also used chicken breasts instead of chicken thighs.

Chicken breast meat is lower in calories and fat, creating a healthier dish. I switched up the general tso sauce recipe to give it a similar taste to hoisin without the gluten.

The sauce is slightly spicy and so delicious! It’s so good that I’ve also used it to make General Tso’s Vegetarian Noodle Stir Fry and General Tso’s Chicken Wings.

You can actually double, or triple, the sauce ingredients in this recipe. Keep the extra sauce on hand to make more chicken, noodle stir fry or chicken wings throughout the week. The sauce will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for 5-7 days.

Let me tell you about my love of one pot meals. It’s a great love, a love that can only come from the fact that I absolutely hate doing dishes! One pot meals allow me to wash just one dish at the end of preparing the meal. Yes, please!

I love one pot rice dishes, like this Taco Chicken and Rice and this Kimchi Fried Rice.

I also love one pot potato recipes, like this One Pot German Meatballs and Potatoes and this One Pot Meatloaf Hash.

But let’s be honest, one pot pasta dishes are always a fan favorite! This One Pot Greek Pasta is a huge hit on the blog. It’s so flavorful, you’ll want to make it every week! And this One Pot Cajun Pasta is always a fun way to spice up a weeknight dinner!

Now when it comes to finding the perfect vegetarian one pot meal, this Vegetarian Tortellini recipe is where it’s at! Creamy cheeses, combined with sun dried tomato pesto make an amazing sauce to toss with the cheesy tortellini and fresh veggies.

This vegetarian tortellini is one of my favorite recipes of all time and I keep it in regular rotation on Meatless Mondays! It’s an easy dinner to make and clean up!
