Pizza Outside the Box

We make pizzas at least once a week, if not more often. I haven't blogged them all step by step, because once you get the dough down, topping them is all up to you. We try ideas we see on tv, or just pair up things we think we will go good together. The idea is to think about pizza "outside the box". So here are a few we've recently made! I will continue to post these unique and delicious pizzas as we make them.

My new favorite pizza, Mashed Potato pizza.
You have no idea how good this is! I mean, potatoes on pizza? It works though, it works really really well :)
A creamy mashed potato spread, topped with bacon, chives, parmesan reggiano, and mozzarella.

Mac n Cheese pizza. Need I say more?
Here is the recipe for this creamy mac n cheese we used to top the pizza-
Creamy Mac n Cheese (this will make almost twice as much as you need for one pizza, so top the rest with bread crumbs and bake the next day for lunch!
1/2 pd. pkg. of lg. elbow macaroni (half of a 16 oz. bag)
1/4 cup butter
3 tbsp. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
2 cups milk
1 pd, sharp cheddar, shredded

Cook macaroni. In a saucepan, melt butter. Turn heat to med-high. Add flour, garlic, and salt, whisk til smooth. Gradually stir in milk. Keep whisking! Add cheese and stir until melted. Add macaroni.

Prosciutto and Arugula pizza.
Olive oil, Parmesan Reggiano, sliced prosciutto. Baked, and topped with fresh arugula.

Chicken Alfredo pizza.
Seasoned sauteed chicken, diced tomatoes, fresh spinach, alfredo sauce, and mozzarella.

Broccoli & Roasted Red Pepper pizza.
Fresh broccoli florets, roasted red bell pepper, alfredo sauce and mozzarella cheese.
