Our Favorite Summer Pizza Toppings
When it’s hot outside, the last thing you want to do is cook. Or even think about cooking. But even if it’s hot, you can’t starve, so the simplest solution is to order something. A lot of takeout food, however, can be pretty heavy, which is not really appealing when it’s hot, either. So what do you do? Check out our favorite summer pizzas at Alley Cat, of course! Some of our favorite pizza toppings are perfect for summer and make for a delicious and light yet satisfying meal.
Mediterranean food is known for being light and yet full of flavor. For a traditional pizza with a Mediterranean flair, try ordering black olives and sliced tomato as your toppings. If you want some extra flavor, add some fresh garlic to the mix. Are you feeling even more adventurous? Add anchovies, too! We know they’re not everyone’s favorite, but you can’t deny they add a unique flavor.
Vegetarian pizzas are classic summer fare, and one of our favorite veggie topping combinations is tomatoes, onions, and mushrooms. It’s a delicious flavor combo and brings together a medley of textures. All three flavors are distinct, but none of them are so strong that they overpower each other. You can also adapt it to your personal tastes. For example, you can replace the tomato with green pepper or add hot peppers for some added spice!
Does neither of these pizzas sound light enough for you? Then try an Alley Cat specialty: the White Cat. We don’t use tomato sauce on this pizza, and the toppings are simple: olive oil, garlic, and oregano. The delicate flavors play off each other as they come together to make the ultimate summer pizza. It’s a unique experience and perfect for a hot summer evening.
There’s never a wrong time to order pizza, no matter the weather or time of year. At Alley Cat, we have specialty pizzas that appeal to everyone’s taste. And if none of those quite match your cravings, you can always build your own.
