Mac & Cheese Pizza

Do you like mac & cheese? Do you like pizza? Then you’ve got to try….Mac & Cheese Pizza!!!

It’s sort of become a tradition for my friends and I to make pizzas together. One of my friends was talking about how they serve mac & cheese pizza at her college’s dining hall, so we decided to make our own. Here’s what you need:

  • Pizza Dough (we used store-bought dough, but I’m sure there’s lots of recipes online if you’d like to make your own)
  • Olive Oil
  • Macaroni
  • Cheese(s) of your choice (We used a combination of sharp cheddar and mozzarella)
  • Salt & Pepper

First, roll out your pizza dough onto a baking sheet. We didn’t want our pizza to be dry, so we lightly coated the top and bottom of the dough with olive oil. While you’re getting the dough ready, you can boil the macaroni. (Note: Some store-bought doughs should be pre-heated before you add the toppings. That wasn’t the case with the dough we used, but I think Pillsbury pizza dough instructions say to do that.)

Once the macaroni is done cooking, you can begin to add the toppings! First, put a layer on cheese on top of the dough, followed by a layer of macaroni, followed by another layer of cheese. Then add a little bit of olive oil and salt and pepper to the top for seasoning. Put it in the oven, and take it out when the cheese is melted and starting to brown.

We had some leftover macaroni and some leftover cheese, so I made this mini plate of mac & cheese & pepperoni. I just added the toppings and put it in the microwave for maybe like…30 seconds? It was actually so good (I think I liked it even more than the pizza…shh).

Next time you have friends over, think about making pizzas! It’s actually really fun and everyone can customize their own. Bye!!
