Children grow up on two easy, comfort foods that make up in taste what they lack in nutrition. Mac and cheese and pizza are favorites for any parents who want to please their kids without slaving over the stove. Finally, there’s a recipe that combines these two amazing dishes into one weird dinner. If you add Italian seasoning, pepperoni pieces, and some tomatoes to noodles you get pizza macaroni but that’s too simple! Instead, tonight we’re making macaroni pizza!
Since it’s combining two of the easiest dinner options there’s no need to get too fancy. You can opt for a homemade mac and cheese blend that is baked with breadcrumbs but somehow the Kraft boxed version is the best with the least effort. There’s something about that mysterious orange powder that gets your mouth watering. You have the same option with the pizza side of things too as you can make homemade dough or just get a dough ball to flatten out from the store.
First you’ll want to make about 3 cups of macaroni and cheese. If you’re taking the easy way out and opt for a box you’re in luck because it makes about 3 cups total. To make a little more cheese sauce you can melt in a few slices of American cheese or add a little more milk.
Brush your pizza crust with olive oil and dump in the macaroni. Top it with about a ½ cup of shredded cheese to get a nice cheesy spread over it when it bakes. All you have left to do is bake the pie for 7 or 10 minutes at 450 degrees. The time isn’t totally absolute, just leave it in until it’s the golden brown you’re looking for. Bon appetite! Enjoy the cheesy goodness and don’t you worry about your heart health when you scarf down this fun dinner! We’re all kids at heart anyway!
