What food goes better with football than pizza? There is nothing more enjoyable than watching the game with a steaming-hot pizza to dig into. Well, so long as it is a homemade one. Sure, there is something incredibly tempting -- and ever so easy -- about picking up the phone and ordering a pizza to be delivered right to your doorstep. But the truth is, it will never taste as good as the one that comes straight out of your very own oven.

The best thing about pizza is that it is so very easy to make -- and nearly impossible to mess up. Once you have the dough and the sauce together, it is just a matter of assembling all the other ingredients. And sometimes, you can even skip the sauce. There is a recipe for everyone in the slideshow below, from personal pizzas, to meat lovers' pizza and one for Thai-food lovers too -- and don't forget about dessert. We even have a pizza recipe with graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows.

  • Individual Grill Pan Pepperoni Pizzas

    There is something extra special that happens when you grill pizza -- it brings you closest to a wood-oven pizza taste. But in the winter, some of us can no longer use our grills. Well, pulling out your grill pan can also get you an excellent result -- extra-crispy restaurant quality crust. <strong>Get the<a href="" target="_hplink"> Individual Grill Pan Pepperoni Pizzas</a> recipe</strong>

  • White-Bean-And-Pancetta Pizza

    This pizza recipe skips a step by using pita bread in place of the pizza dough. While this will give your pizza a different result, it is a great alternative if you find yourself without a lot of time. But don't think you will be missing out on taste -- topping these with pancetta, white bean, rosemary and garlic makes for a winning flavor combination. <strong>Get the <a href="" target="_hplink">White-Bean-and-Pancetta Pizza</a> recipe</strong>

  • Delfina's Broccoli Rabe Pizza

    Don't think for a second that this pizza is going to be one of those healthy, not-so-tasty veggie pizzas. That just isn't the case with this recipe. Mozzarella and salty caciocavallo cheese provide a rich flavor, black olives and peppery broccoli rabe give it depth, and a healthy dollop of heavy whipping cream ensures that this pie is going to come out of the oven creamy and rich. <strong>Get the <a href="" target="_hplink">Delfina's Broccoli Rabe Pizza</a> recipe</strong>

    Can't decide between a turkey sandwich or pizza? Well, this recipe allows you to enjoy both dishes at once.

  • Arugula And Prosciutto Pizza

In this recipe, arugula and prosciutto -- a perfect match -- really shine. <strong>Get the <a href="" target="_hplink">Arugula and Prosciutto Pizza</a> recipe</strong>

  • Personal Pizzas

    What do people like more than pizza? Their own personal pizza. With your own pizza, you don't have to worry about who is taking the bigger slice -- or worse, who is going to get the last piece. Everyone can top their pizza as they wish -- meat lovers can load up on pepperoni and sausage, vegetarians with peppers, spinach and olives. <strong>Get the <a href="" target="_hplink">Personal Pizzas</a> recipe</strong>

  • Pepperoni Bread

    Pepperoni is arguably the most popular pizza topping there is -- making it one of the most ordered pizzas. This recipe keeps the beloved flavor, and presents it in a breadstick form. While it is not the same as pizza, it might be a little bit easier -- and a lot less mess -- to eat while watching the game. <strong>Get the <a href="" target="_hplink">Pepperoni Bread </a>recipe</strong>

  • S'mores Pizzas

    Most of us know those s'mores -- the genius combination of marshmallows, milk chocolate and graham crackers -- from hanging around the campfire. But, let's be honest. They are always a little too messy, a little too sticky and just plain hard to assemble. Well, if you turn that s'more into a pizza, all those problems are solved. <strong>Get the <a href="" target="_hplink">S'mores Pizzas</a> recipe</strong>

  • Pizza With Gruyere, Pear And Chestnut Honey
