Here at What the Forks for Dinner? we are all about pizza! Beer Cheese Brat Pretzel Pizza is our latest labor of love of pizza!
It’s football season*…Sundays in front of the TV and food! Brats, dips, pretzels…….. how convenient….we made a pizza with all those things.
*Side note: I originally wrote this post during football season, and was sure I posted it…..oops……I did not…..blogger brain? Anyway the recipe was tooo delicious to not share!!
I will be the first to admit, that this is a bit labor intensive, but the end result is totally worth it. It has quite a few elements. All of them can be made ahead, so on game day you can just assemble and bake.Continue reading “Beer Cheese Brat Pretzel Pizza”
It’s the weekend….busy Saturdays call for take out? How about take in? Thai Chicken Pizza is the best of two carry out favorites.
When I think of carry out, I think of pizza and Chinese………..Thai Chicken Pizza is carry out combined.
Pizza is a weekend staple for us, and if you have read my blog you know, we love pizza, and have it at least once a week. I love Chinese food, Tim not so much, but he does like spicy, this pizza is all of those things.
Pizza, Chinese, spicy, plus easy to make! What could be better?
Now, pizza has to have sauce, Thai needs peanut sauce. I see a combo……no tomatoes here, but a spicy smooth peanut butter sauce than is the perfect “pizza sauce”.
Pre-made pizza crust make a pizza easy to make at a moment notice. I keep them on hand for that impromptu pizza moment……you know when you just gotta have a pizza.
Pre-grilled chicken strips……in the freezer section, makes it easy to have grilled chicken at the ready.
For toppings, chicken, bean sprouts, carrots, and green onions. Now I know that mozzarella cheese is not Thai or Chinese, but, no self respecting pizza is sans of cheese!
Mozzarella is a bit neutral so….perfect. Compliments but doesn’t over power.
Once the crust is loaded with toppings into the oven for about 10 minutes. I like a brownish cheese, so a few minutes under the broiler helps give that golden color.
But remember, it only take a minute to go from perfect, to slightly more than golden…..a.k.a. burnt! So watch your pizza carefully if you broil.
Once you have that perfect golden cheese, remove the pizza and garnish with the green part of the green onions, cashews, cilantro, and if desired the cooling coconut cream.
Funny story……the day I made this pizza, I made the coconut cream and put it in the frig, so when the pizza was ready and I was taking pictures I could garnish with the cream………I forgot the cream until the next day…..yikes!
So, none of the pictures have the cream in them but, when I reheated a piece the next day I put the coconut cream on the pizza……..OMG it was awesome!
So, this weekend when you want take out – in…….. Thai Chicken Pizza.
But be sure to set the coconut cream out when asking the pizza so you can enjoy the total taste experience…..you won’t be sorry!
Pizza time……..let’s take a trip to the islands……… Twisted Hawaiian Pizza.
As you all know we love pizza, and eat it all the time. One would think we were Italian……maybe by food proxy????
Tim and I had not made a homemade pizza on a loooooong time……….but the time arrived this weekend. We love Hawaiian Pizza……..Canadian bacon, pineapple, and we add onion. Not sure if thats the norm, but it is for us. Continue reading “Twisted Hawaiian Pizza”
