So I threw all the good stuff in my mixer, made some dough, and proceeded to make the pizzas - kiddos first of course. The pepperoni pizza was pretty straight forward, with the exception that Thing 1 insisted that it be in the shape of a triangle. For Easter. (He decided this should be the recognized shape of Easter - triangle Easter chocolates coming your way soon ;). So a triangle pizza we made.
While that one was cooking I made up mine. I had memories of Godfather's Cheeseburger Pizza floating through my head the whole time. Unfortunately, it didn't quite turn out how my memory expected it to be :( It was, OK, but not great. The crust was good and crunchy, and the flavor was OK, but only so. I was going for mouthwatering, I want to eat the whole thing, great.
Here's what I did:
- Dough (I added garlic and onion powder to it)
- Sauce (equal parts Miracle Whip and Ketchup with a good squirt of mustard)
- Browned Beef/Turkey mix seasoned
- Mix of Cheddar and Mozzarella cheese
- Dill Pickle coins
Here's what I think I'll do next time
- Pizza Sauce this time? Or leave out one of the three condiment/sauces
- Either use relish in the condiment sauce so there is more pickly-ness to it, or at least at pickle juice to sauce. Or add pickles after it's cooked
- Add sauteed onions to toppings (I was too lazy to unthaw mine from the freezer)
- Add Crumbled Bacon
- Plan ahead and have lettuce and tomato to shred to top after it's cooked
Maybe I'll try recreating a BLT pizza next time. Jet's Pizza makes a mean BLT hand tossed....yum...good thing I made the gym this morning ;)
***Editor's Note: I'm feeling better about my creation - DD just got home and had some - he said it was "yummy." I'm also feeling good about myself that I was able to save $$ by making this at home. I was looking through today's mail and noticed a Papa Murphy's ad for a Cheeseburger Pizza for $10 - $12 for the family size. ***
