Macaroni and Cheese Pizza
Some things sound crazy until you try it. For example, putting Macaroni and Cheese on a Pizza sounds nuts, until you taste it and realize it takes like delicious baked Macaroni and Cheese. Ian's Pizza in Chicago has perfected, and I think invented, this delicious treat. The problem is that I live outside the delivery zone, and I am not in that area very often. The obvious solution is to learn how to make Macaroni and Cheese Pizza!
My friends requested that I try to recreate the pizza to the best of my ability, which means that this is one of the not-so-healthy recipes on the blog. Sorry! It is worth the calories, I promise.
You will need:
1 Fresh Ball of Pizza Dough (from Whole Foods or Trader Joe's)
1/2 cup Creme Faiche
3/4 cup Cheddar Cheese
3/4 cup Mozzarella
1 cup Tubular Pasta
Salt and Pepper
Optional: Crispy Turkey Bacon
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Then cook the pasta according to the directions on the box. Drain.
Spray a cooking sheet with non-stick spray, sprinkle with flour and then rollout/stretch out the dough.
Spread a thin layer of Creme Faiche over the dough. Then add the pasta, and top with the mozzarella and cheddar cheese.
Bake for 20 minutes. Broil for 2 minutes to brown and remove from oven. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and enjoy!
