What do you do when you ask what they want for dinner and you hear two answers?
Pizza mom! Chili Dogs please!
Believe me you are going to think I must be crazy to even make this pizza after I saw it at a restaurant.
But Chili Dog Pizza is not just for kids, adults enjoy it too.
When my husband ordered this from a nice family restaurant we frequent alot, I thought he was kidding.
It wasn’t on the menu, but he had asked the owner if he would fix it since all the ingredients were already in their kitchen. As we are good friends with the owner he agreed.
I know how much he loves to try things when we eat out that I normally wouldn’t make at home.
When they brought the pizza to the table cheese was running down the edges. I was speechless.
As the aroma of the chili and onions came my way I looked a bit closer intrigued at what I saw.
There on top of the pizza were perfectly blackened bits of hot dog swimming in the chili sauce and peaking around the the chopped onions.
To call attention to all this deliciousness was a nice zig zag of yellow mustard!
The presentation! The aroma!
If the flavors were as striking as these sights and smells I knew the offering would soon be on the menu.
Judging from the nods and smiles from the tables around us I would say that was a sure bet.
A few weeks later I tried my own hand at the recipe.
Chili, hot dog pieces, onions and mustard swimming on top of melted mozzarella smelled sooooo good coming from my kitchen.
I was sure I had pulled it off and recreated the now favorite pizza in my own home.
When the door opened and my husband walked in I could tell he knew what would be on the table for dinner tonight.
All he said was, “I knew it wouldn’t be long before you tried to make this Chili Dog Pizza at home.”
Combining two of the family favorites, chili dogs and pizza, kept peace at the table and the family fed.
I never have been one to shy away from a challenge.
This one offers an easy, fast, and different menu option for your family. You have try it!
I can guarantee if you like pizza and you have a taste for a chili dog, then you won’t be disappointed.
What better way to have a healthy dinner than by making a Veggie Pizza?
No sauce is used, but you can substitute a pesto sauce for the cream cheese.
Having had this both ways it is a toss up trying to decide which is best. So it is a matter of personal taste.
The crescent crust is soft and flaky and the veggies are raw and crispy.
This combination of cooked and raw ingredients makes a perfect texture sensation and allows all the nutrients in the veggies to be consumed.
Your kids will love eating their veggies and there won’t be much of a cleanup for mom. Try this Veggie Pizza today!
In my home we like to take an everyday item and think outside the box.
And all the pizzas we make are very different. From the crust to the sauce to the toppings, we love them all.
I think though the crescent veggie pizza wins out more times than not.
We can dress this pizza with any toppings we like or just finish up some leftovers. It is a winner!
The recipe calls for a cream cheese, sour cream dill and garlic layer under the veggies.
I used a pesto sauce instead to keep it a bit more calorie friendly.
The fresh garden veggies, broccoli, cucumbers, carrots and peppers can be found in your own garden.
This helps to keep the pizza inexpensive too!
We had fun making the pizza as each of us peeled and cut our own veggies.
Feel free to add meats and even fruits. This dish is healthy and yummy!
I am wondering what types of veggies and sauces you may use. Please let me know in the comments below!
What do you do when everybody wants something different for dinner?
But not take out, just good food fast! I make a mash-up of leftovers made into a quick and tasty dish.
Today, that was pizza and taco fixings with leftover kale.
Really, it was great tasting dinner and everyone had what they wanted.
Since most of the ingredients are added after the pizza is baked, everyone can choose what they want with this Taco Pizza.
We love the crunchy taco shells so those were broken into bite size pieces.
I added hamburger with seasoning mix, but I left a portion of the pizza using crumbles of Ready Hour Taco Vegetable Meat Substitute for my daughter-in-law and Miss Jo as they are meatless eaters.
i then added enough cheese to satisfy the crowd, and then some, and threw it into the oven.
Once it smelled done and I could se the crust was golden brown I set it on a rack to cool just a bit.
Then we each took our share and the race for the toppings began!
We had black olives, beans, avocado, sour cream, green, orange, red and yellow peepers in their own ramikens.
Lettuce, kale and sour cream were also available. the sauces for the top were optional.
i believe everyone was satisfied because their was no fighting and no leftovers to clean up and put away.
I am thinking the next pizza mash up night will be a Chili Dog Pizza I saw on a menu.
What do you throw together at the end of the day? See below the recipe card for more of my crazy combinations!
Chicken Club Pizza is a pizza and a sandwich all together ion a pizza dish. I luse the stone pizza dish from Pampered Chef.
I just love a meal that comes together in under 30 minutes and in one dish!
All the food groups are represented too!
Kids and adults alike will love this Chicken Club Pizza.
The kitchen can be cleaned up quickly giving you time to wind down with a good book, watch a movie or play a family game.
With all the hustle and bustle of getting the kids to sports or meetings this time of year, this dish fulfills all the requirements of no mess, no stress that I look for at the end of a busy day.
One of my favorite sandwiches is a good club sandwich.
I usually add chicken to mine. And of course bacon, lettuce and tomato are a must.
Now enter the Chicken Club Pizza.
Use a dairy crust or make your own. with this recipe it won’t matter.
Mayonnaise olive oil, ranch dressing and the triple cheeses containing a bit of cream cheese creates a white sauce that is irresistible.
Go ahead and replace the meat by substituting meatless bacon strips and meatless chicken. I would add some bean sprouts, sliced tomatoes and avocado or a vegetarian take of the pizza.chipotle chiles, stems and seeds discarded
To create a healthier pizza simmer golden raisins, tomato paste, agave syrup and chili powder to make a sauce for salmon fillets. Then top with some mayo and a layer of arugula, and tomato.
I haven’t tried this yet but I plan to very soon.
All in all though I enjoy the more classic club on my pizza.
How will you dress up your next pizza?
