BBQ Chicken Mac n' Cheese Pizza Recipe
This isn’t so much of a recipe… it’s an idea. A very naughty, indulgent, crazy, yummy idea. A great use of leftovers (which is how this recipe -err- idea was born!) or you can go all out with my Easy Pizza Dough Recipe and Macaroni and Cheese Recipe (which is where my leftovers came from).

Prepare pizza dough. Do this ahead of time to allow the dough to proof. Get the complete step-by-step recipe here. You can also do a quickie version by using pita bread or flat bread for crust. Heck, you can even use bread! As a matter of fact, some inspiration for this crazy pizza was the Grilled Cheese Invitational where a team made a barbecued pork-mac-n-cheese-grilled cheese. UPDATE: That team has become the Grilled Cheese Truck rolling the streets of Los Angeles! Brilliant!

Prepare Macaroni and Cheese. Though I normally make my Mac a little more “crusty” on top, I opted for a more cheesy, less crusty version for the pizza. Gooey, baby. Get the complete step-by-step recipe here.

Top with a little more shredded cheese, if desired, and grill over medium/medium-high heat until cheese is melted and toppings are heated through.

TIP: You can use a grill pan or skillet. You can also bake on a preheated, 450(F) cookie sheet or pizza stone in a preheated oven (450F) for 5-10 minutes. If using the Easy Pizza Dough Recipe, please consult other helpful tips for grilling and oven baking on the recipe page.
