Recipe 35: Pizza Mac Hack v2.0Posted: September 24, 2012
Holy crap, has it really been almost a month since I have updated? Forgive me, Weekly Mackers! I hope this doesn’t put me too far behind, but time shall tell. Catch-up time!
You may see the title and think “Pizza Mac Hack? We’ve seen this already!” Hold your horses, crazy-pants! This one is different, I swear.
Take a pizza dough base. You can make your own, use a store-bought mix, even a bought pre-prepared one – heck, some pizzerias will even sell you some of their dough. If you are gluten-free like me, Udi’s sells a frozen base, Bob’s Red Mill sells a mix, and several other brands do as well if you don’t have a recipe of your own to use. Pre-cook the base according to any directions. While the pizza is baking, make your mac according to package directions. When the crust is cooked, pour the finished mac on top. Because pizza isn’t filled with enough cheese and carbs, is it? You could of course put down a sauce before adding the mac and/or mix in some pizza toppings with the mac like veggies or pepperoni, but don’t feel you have to.
I’ll be honest, despite loving cheese and carbs, this might be a bit too indulgent even for me. But hey, try it out – you might like it!
