My fiancé works in a city with the best speciality slice pizza place, and my go-to is always their carbonara pie. Not only is it delicious, but I love how it's got all the flavors of one of my favorite pasta dishes on a cheesy slice of pizza. Ever since I first tried that, it really opened up my eyes to how the pizza topping possibilities are really endless!
That slice got me thinking about some of my other favorite classic pasta dishes that could be incorporated into a homemade pie, and I instantly thought of Amatriciana. So simple, with guanciale (or pancetta), a slightly spicy tomato sauce, and pecorino romano which has the most unique flavor. I knew I had to go for it and this saucy and slightly smokey pizza did not disappoint.
The guanciale or pancetta! If you can find guanciale I would use that, otherwise pancetta works great also. Cook that up in a large skillet until golden.
This simple sauce is so delicious, fresh, and couldn't be simpler. It comes together so quickly and is the perfect base for this pizza.
Layer that pie up and pop it in the oven!
Serve with extra parmesan and crushed red pepper!
The most delicious and simple pizza take on a classic pasta dish!
