Tasty Tuesday: Mardi Gras Pizza
We LOVE pizza at the House of Collums! Delivery gets too expensive, and I try not to buy the prepackaged stuff very often. So necessity (and not wanting all the preservatives) forced me into finding a dough recipe. This is one of our favorite pizza ideas, Mardi Gras Pizza! This same type of pizza is served at Old Venice Pizza Co. in Jackson, MS and a bbq sauce version at Tom's Extreme Pizza in Ocean Springs and Gautier. We love both versions so much we make our version at home!
Here's my recipe: Makes 2 small pizzas
Mardi Gras Pizza
1-recipe Everything Yeast Dough
1 small red(purple) onion, diced
1 small green bell pepper, diced
1small yellow bell pepper, diced
andouille sausage, browned (amount depends on how much you want!)
1/2-1 block cream cheese, softened
Prepare your dough as directed; bake until lightly browned. Remove from oven and spread cream cheese on top. Then sprinkle peppers, onion and sausage on top (as much or as little as you want). Top lightly with mozzarella cheese and a sprinkle of garlic salt. Bake a second time until cheese it melted.
*When using prebaked dough (like Boboli) start by topping with cream cheese and then proceed as directed.
