Macaroni n’ Cheese PIZZA

Mac and cheese pizza.  It’s a thing.  I wasn’t aware it was a thing, but it is.  I was casually perusing the isles of a Fresh Market grocery store with my 11 y/o daughter and mom one day, when they were giving out samples of a macaroni and cheese pizza.  My daughter went nuts, b/c she is a mac n’ cheese freak.  I think she would eat it everyday.  She ate several samples, it was embarrassing.  Finally I said in that quiet hiss that only mothers can do…’no more! We’ll make one at home!’, and that’s how macaroni and cheese pizza became ‘a thing’ in the mo’betta house.

This is so ridiculously easy that I am almost embarrassed to post it.  Almost, but not quite…b/c if you have a mac n’ cheese AND pizza fan at your house, and you didn’t know this was a thing, then you will love me.  Okay, maybe not love, but, ya know – like me a little, because don’t we ALL need some seriously easy throw-together-at-the-very-last-minute recipes? Yes. Yes we do.

Macaroni and Cheese Pizza (short cut version)

Kraft Homestyle Macaroni and Cheese (or your favorite brand)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or again, your favorite)
prepared pizza crust (I like the Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust)
real bacon bits (to taste…I just sprinkle some over the top)
Prepare macaroni and cheese and pizza crust according to package directions.  The Pillsbury crust says to pre-bake a few minutes, so after pre-baking, spread prepared macaroni and cheese over the crust.  Sprinkle the 1/2 cup shredded cheese and bacon bits over the top.  Pop back into the oven until everything is nice and melty and crust is completely done.
BAM! Dinner is D-O-N-E.
Now, obviously, this is a quick and dirty version, and you could make this with homemade mac and cheese and homemade pizza dough.  It can be as simple or complex as you would like.  All I can say is, it is quite a hit with my 2 girls!  I know it may seem strange, but it is actually pretty good, and I am not a fan of macaroni and cheese. *gasp*  I know, right?!  I’m weird like that.
Have you ever had macaroni and cheese pizza?  What is the “weirdest” pizza you’ve ever had?
