Mac & Cheese Pizza

 

 

I remember being a kid and Home Alone was my little brothers favorite movie.  He would watch it ALL the time, not just at Christmas time.  So, I knew that once we let our little boys watch it, it would become one of their favorite movies too!  And sure enough it is!  It’s one of the movies they look forward too the most at Christmas!  And they are both so much like Kevin McCallister that I think thats why they love this movie so much! Haha!

And just like Kevin they both love Mac and Cheese and pizza!  I wanted to create something that would bring us back to the 90’s and Home Alone.  As we know Kevin loved Cheese pizza. And before he started wreaking havoc on the bad guys he was about to enjoy a dinner of mac and cheese. So I wanted to make a mac and cheese pizza dinner that combined the bet of both worlds!  I added pepperoni because my boys love it!

This is INCREDIBLE!  It tastes just like mac and cheese and pizza!  It’s so good!  Everyone in my house loved it!  It was gibe within 15 minutes!

So grab a slice, a cold one Home Alone and hit play!

Enjoy!

Merry Christmas you filthy animals!!!!

 

Ingredients:

1 lb elbow pasta

2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar

4 oz cream cheese

2 cups milk

4 tbsp butter

14 oz can pizza sauce

2 cups shredded mozzarella

pepperoni

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400°.

Cook pasta (cook a little less time then it calls for on the packaging, because it will cook more in the oven.)

In heavy bottom pan melt butter, once butter is melted add milk, stir constantly for about 5 minutes.  Then add in your cheese, stir constantly so cheese doesn’t burn and cream cheese melts.

Once cheese is melted mix together with pasta.

Spray pizza pan with non stick spray or cover with non stick foilSpread mixture out onto pizza pan, then use any flat object (plate or pizza stone) press it down on top of pasta to create flat crust.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until edges are slightly brown.

Once you remove mac and cheese crust from oven spread on your pizza sauce, sprinkle with mozzarella and add on your pepperoni.

Bake for another 20 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Let pizza cool for 10 minutes, it will help keep the pizza from falling a part.  When it’s hot it’s very soft as it cools, it will firm up.

Enjoy!!!!
