Mac & Cheese Pizza 


Oh yes! Yes, I did.

Before making this, I was debating on just making PB&J, but the grumbling in my tummy was too real for that. I put together Presli’s love of Mac and cheese mixed with my desperate love of carbs (crust).

First, you make that dough!

Preheat your oven to 375 

I used what I think is mostly typical ingredients for crust. I did not use yeast because I was hungry and did not want to wait. This took me about 8 minutes to make.

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 cups of flour
  • 1 heaping tablespoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 4 tablespoons of butter (room temp)
  • 1 cup milk

Just blend these all with either a wooden spoon or a dough mixer until it forms a big dough ball.

I put that aside while I started boiling the eggs noodles.

The cheese sauce ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups of milk
  • 3 tablespoons of flour
  • Spoon full of bacon grease
  • Roughly 6 cups of shredded cheese
  • Salt and pepper

Warm 1 cup of milk with the bacon grease until it slightly bubbles. Mix together remaining milk with the flour until blended and slowly stir it in the bubbling milk.

Keep stiring until there are no more clumps.

Wait for the sauce to get thickened before adding in the cheese and spices.

Mix together egg noodles and sauce.

Going back to your dough…

Flatten it out over flour onto a flat surface. Then you just fold over the edges to make a plump crust edge.

Pour in your Mac and cheese!

I added minced garlic to my crust edges.

I added Panko bread crumbs to the top of the pizza.

Pop it in the oven for 12-15 minutes!

My 7 year old thought it was amazing!

Josh had several pieces, I am guessing it was good.

For myself, I ate 3 pieces and didn’t look back!
