Buffalo Chicken Pizza and Macaroni and Cheese Pizza are two of my most popular pizzas. What could be better? Taking two great ideas and putting them together to create Buffalo Chicken Macaroni and Cheese Pizza. This was a fun pizza to make and to eat. The flavors from the cheese and the Buffalo chicken were distinct, but when combined tasted outstanding. Here’s how I did it.
I made my macaroni and cheese in one pot (using cheddar and pepper jack cheese). At the same time I marinated chicken in Wegmans Buffalo Wing Sause
in a pan with sautéed onions and celery. Then, I combined the two in the mac and cheese pot and left it on low heat. I spread the mixture on the pre-baked dough and let it bake for eight minutes on 450. Before serving, I drizzled Marzetti Light Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing on top of the pizza.
Last summer I created a delicious grilled steak pizza. I was reminded of it while Andrew was grilling steaks for dinner one night, and quickly convinced Andrew to save some steak for a repeat of that delicious pizza.
I marinated the steaks in a similar homemade teriyaki marinade that I used last summer. It consists of soy sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, olive oil and minced garlic. This marinade is super easy to make and tastes fantastic on beef or chicken. After snatching some steak from the grill I sliced it into bite sized pieces, along with peppers and onions. Andrew has been craving pepper jack cheese lately and I thought it would go great on this pizza. I threw everything on top of a layer of marinara sauce, then baked it for about 10 minutes.
Pepper jack cheese was definitely the right choice for my Steak, Peppers and Onion pizza recipe. The kick of the cheese complimented the juicy, savory flavors of the teriyaki sauce on the steak. Another great summer steak pizza has joined the list!
