Mac & Cheese Pizza (Macaroni & Chizza)

The kid in me (and the kid in my house) will always love two things: mac & cheese and pizza.  This recipe uses both to create a creamy, gooey, yummy, combination of comfort food.  This recipe takes the term "comfort food" to a whole new level!  I present: The Mac & Cheese Pizza (or as my hubby likes to call it, "Macaroni and Chizza").

  • 1 tube refrigerated thin pizza crust (11 oz size)
  • 2 macaroni & cheese cups (1 serving each) - I used "Bob Evans" refrigerated cups, but "Lean Cuisine" also makes frozen single-serving cups.  Prepared "Easy Mac" would also work.

Pan Insert to Use:  Full Round Pan

Servings:  2-4  (makes 2 pizzas)

1.  Preheat grill.  If using the Xpress Platinum, preheat at setting 2.
2.  Spray full round pan insert with nonstick spray.
3.  Cut dough roll into 2 large halves and refrigerate one half for later use.

4.  Roll out remaining pizza dough and divide in half.  Press the first half into the full round pan insert.

5.  Prepare/warm macaroni and cheese in the microwave according to package directions.  Spread over pizza dough.

6.  Place pan insert into preheated grill and close lid.  Cook for about 15 minutes.  Repeat with second pizza.
