I don’t know how it’s possible that we’ve never done a pizza recipe roundup for Frisky Eats, given that we all consider pizza a food group around these parts. Maybe it’s so obvious that we forgot? Well, time to repair that oversight. Here are 14 pizza recipes you can easily make at home — in the oven or on a grill — using homemade dough or store bought. Get it in your mouth, pizza lovers!
I don’t eat a ton of fast food, but I do pay close attention to the fast food industry’s attempts to one-up each other with crazier, weirder and, if you ask me, more disgusting food innovations and hybrids. Take, for example, Domino’s new pizza with a breaded chicken crust. Excuse me, “speciality chicken” crust, whatever that means. (I’m guessing genetically engineered chickens with no heads and 17 breasts, but I could be wrong.) Initially I was picturing a pizza pie with crust made out of, I dunno, minced chicken cooked and shaped into a circle — GAG — but it turns out that this chicken pizza more closely resembles that pull apart garlic bread. Each “pizza” is comprised of 12 chicken bites that, uh, are sort of stuck together in an oblong shape, and topped with various pizza toppings. When you really think about it, this is not altogether different from, say, chicken parmesan … except Domino’s is going a little nuttier with their “flavors.” They’re launching with four varieties: Crispy Bacon & Tomato, Spicy Jalapeno-Pineapple, Classic Hot Buffalo, and Sweet BBQ Bacon. I dunno, sounds like overkill to me. This is one fast food innovation I’ll be saying NO to. [Eater]

You could basically put anything inside a tortilla, top it with sour cream and Tapatio, and I would eat it. And melted cheese inside? Girl.

Here are 10 quesadilla recipes that will appeal to just about everyone.
Admit it. When you think of artichokes, you think of spinach and artichoke dip. I don’t blame you, it’s delightful, but I must beg you to stop limiting the artichoke. This fall and spring veggie has so much more to offer! Try these eight recipes out and see what I mean…
I do a lot of cooking at home, but as a creature of habit, I have to sometimes push myself to try new things. In an effort to do just that, and cut back on my chicken and red meat intake, I’ve been trying my hand at cooking a lot more fish. Salmon has always been my go-to and I continue to love it’s rich flavor and meatier texture, but there are, quite literally, many other fish in the sea. Here are 10 fish recipes to try if you, like me, are indulging your inner pescatarian.
What hath you wrought, cupcake craze? Manhattan has finally gotten its very own Sprinkles Cupcake ATM. Yes, an actual ATM that dispenses cupcakes. While I haven’t tried it yet, I did encounter a Benefit makeup vending machine at the Austin airport last weekend that totally rocked my world and prompted me to spend way more on blush than normally ever would. From makeup to pizza to champagne, it seems like lately everything can be dispensed from a cutesy machine. But why can’t the things we actually need be sold that way? Keep reading »

Just as all things Easter are starting to show up in stores, Dunkin’ Donuts is presenting us with a gift from above: Peeps donuts.

The donuts are flower-shaped and come in pink or green, with a little Peep awkwardly chillin’ at a strange angle in the center. Keep reading »
What’s not to love about a kebab? First of all, it’s common knowledge that anything served on a stick is instantly more delicious and fun to eat, but they’re also great for parties, keeping kids’ (or immature adults’) attention at the dinner table, or just combining interesting flavors in a new way. It might be a bit too early to fire up the grill some of these recipes call for, but most ingredients can be oven roasted and/or seared in a pan for similar results. Ready to get cookin’? Click through for 11 kebab recipes — from cilantro lime shrimp to french toast(!) — that had me drooling on my keyboard…
