Leftovers Pizza

I make pizza a couple times a week, but it never gets old. I don't stick to a basic tomato-sauce-pepperoni-and-mozzarella combo, although that's nice sometimes. I find that homemade pizza is a great way to use up leftovers.

I access my leftovers and any perishable items that I need to use up soon. I have come up with many different pizzas, most of them pretty good. Here are a few of my favorites.

* BBQ-Mix BBQ sauce and ranch dressing for sauce. Top with leftover shredded chicken/pork, diced peppers, onion, tomato and cheddar cheese. After baking, top with lettuce and BBQ sauce.

* Taco-Use taco sauce or salsa in place of tomato sauce. Add leftover taco meat of any type (ground beef, steak, chicken or even TVP), onion, black olives, peppers. Top with cheddar, queso blanco or a taco blend of cheese. After baking, serve with lettuce, tomato and a dollop of salsa, guacamole, or sour cream.

* Breakfast-Eggs, bacon, sausage, peppers and other breakfast goodies make an amazing pizza. Visit eHow for the instructions.

* Veggie-This is a great meal to have when your garden is going nuts. Most veggies are excellent on pizza. My favorites are spinach or dandelion, olives, peppers, broccoli, garlic, onions, mushrooms, green onions, basil and tomato. 

* White- Use alfredo sauce, shredded leftover chicken, caramelized onions, minced garlic and mozzarella. Oh my.

* Greek-leftover gyro meat (is there ever really any?), tomato, kalamata olives, pepperoncini, spinach and feta.

* Cheeseburger -  If you'd like you can press sesame seeds into the pizza dough. Make a sauce of ketchup, mustard and relish. Add leftover ground meat, onions, peppers, and diced pickles. Top with cheddar or a mix of cheddar and mozzarella. After baking, top with lettuce and tomato.

* Bacon Cheeseburger -  Same as above, but add crumbled leftover bacon.

What are your favorite homemade pizzas?

  1. We do homeade pizzas a lot also. http://homesteadingquest.blogspot.com/2010/12/homeade-pizza.html I love fresh jalepenos, tomato and garlic from the garden.... Also raw mozzerella cheese from the farmers market is great. I can a lot of tomato sauce every year and that helps also. Thanks for sharing.
