Pizza Palooza ... Macaroni n' Cheese Pizza

Before you make a funny face just think of it your yummy gooey favorite mac and cheese served on your favorite pizza crust!  Ok yes it may sound weird but the boys thought it was a hit!  A big Thanks to Kim from Makin' it Mo Betta for this Macaroni n' Cheese Pizza


Macaroni and Cheese Pizza 

Macaroni and Cheese (or out a box)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Homemade pizza crust (Or Premade pizza crust)
Bacon (or Bacon Bits)

Prepare macaroni and cheese and pizza crust.  I pre-baked the dough, then spread macaroni and cheese over the crust.  Sprinkle the 1/2 cup shredded cheese and bacon over the top.  Pop back into the oven until everything is nice and melty and crust is completely done.




Macaroni n' Cheese (recipe I used)
INGREDIENTS:
8 ounces uncooked elbow macaroni
2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3 cups milk
1/4 cup butter
2 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 pinch paprika
DIRECTIONS:
1.Cook macaroni according to the package directions. Drain.
2.In a saucepan, melt butter or margarine over medium heat. Stir in enough flour to make a roux. Add milk to roux slowly, stirring constantly. Stir in cheeses, and cook over low heat until cheese is melted and the sauce is a little thick. Put macaroni in large casserole dish, and pour sauce over macaroni. Stir well.
3.Melt butter or margarine in a skillet over medium heat. Add breadcrumbs and brown. Spread over the macaroni and cheese to cover. Sprinkle with a little paprika.
4.Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes. Serve.


Homemade Pizza Dough (recipe I used)
INGREDIENTS:
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45
degrees C)
2 1/2 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
DIRECTIONS:
1.Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). In a medium bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
2.Stir in flour, salt and oil. Beat until smooth. Let rest for 5 minutes.
3.Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat or roll into a round. Transfer crust to a lightly greased pizza pan or baker's peel dusted with cornmeal. Spread with desired toppings and bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Let baked pizza cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Enjoy and watch the smile around you.
