An extremely fattening and extremely delicious Meservy family favorite.
Macaroni & Cheese Pizza
- Your favorite store bought/recipe for pizza dough, prepared and rolled out
- Diced onions
- Diced garlic
- Macaroni & Cheese, prepared (we used Kraft Macaroni & Cheese – you could easily get two pizzas out of one box. We have also used the seashell pasta Velveeta kind which is even better)
- Bacon, cooked and sliced
- Pepperoni, if desired
- Garlic salt
- Mozzarella cheese
Sprinkle diced onion and garlic onto dough and top with mac & cheese. Top with sliced bacon and pepperoni. Sprinkle garlic salt and oregano on top of dish and top with a layer of mozzarella cheese. I just eyeballed the ingredients so I don’t have measurements for you! Since most of the toppings have already been prepared cook according to dough directions, mine was 375 for 15 minutes, or until dough is cooked through and cheese has melted. Voila! Cheesy goodness.
*Yields 4 hot pockets
1 package thick crust Pilsbury pre-made pizza crust
1 can pizza sauce (you may want to change this to alfredo sauce if you use chicken)
1 1/2 C pepperoni slices (you may exchange this for another meat or add to)
2 C mozzarella cheese
*note amounts may vary depending on what you want more or less of.
- Add diced mushrooms, deiced red bell peppers, spinach, chopped onions, chopped broccoli, hot sauce, etc.
- Top your hot pocket with seasoning such as parmesan cheese and basil leaves.
Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees (or whatever your pre-made pizza dough package says) Roll out your pre-made pizza crust. Cut into 4 pieces. Fill dough with desired ingredients and enclose your hot pocket so that it is in fact a “pocket.” Place parchment paper on pan and place hot pockets on top. Cook for 15-16 minutes if using regular oven and 13 minutes in convection oven (or whatever your pre-made pizza crust package recommends)
The fun thing about this recipe is that you can really put whatever you want in it and each person can make their own so it becomes a personalized Hot Pocket!
I would love to see how some other people designed their hot pockets so please share your masterpieces!
I found this recipe on a really cute blog and it is delicious! She has great step-by-step pictures and everything – genius! Here is my version:
1 bag of egg noodles, boiled until soft
1 extra large can of your favorite pasta sauce
3 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
1-1/2 pounds of ground hamburger or sausage, browned
1/2 package of pepperonis (the BEST part – the more the better)
Preheat the oven to 350 and get ready to layer the ingredients in a 9×13 glass pan. First, spread a thin layer of sauce on the bottom of the pan. Follow this by layering the following: half of the noodles, half of the meat, half of the sauce, rest of the noodles, half of the cheese, rest of the meat, rest of the sauce, rest of the cheese. Top with pepperonis and cover with foil. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 15 minutes. When done let cool for 10-15 minutes and then enjoy!
