Steps To Follow For Making Delicious Macaroni And Cheese Pizza

Follow all the directions we have mentioned serially to make this mac and cheese pizza recipe at home. Try not to skip any steps, as it may affect the flavor or texture of the food.

Step One

Set the temperature of your oven to 450 degrees for preheating. Take your baking sheet and line it properly with parchment paper.

Step Two

Cook the mac and cheese by following the instructions given in the package, then add half the amount of all three kinds of cheese to it. Carefully stir and mix it all until the cheese melts completely. 

Step Three

Put the prepared pizza dough on your clean countertop, then carefully stretch and roll it into a large round shape, until it’s 12 inches wide. Transfer it to the baking sheet you prepared earlier. Brush olive oil and sprinkle some garlic powder on top of the pizza dough. Bake it for about ten minutes or until it begins to get golden.

Step Four

Take out the baked crust, properly spread the mac and cheese on top of it, and leave ½ inch border for the crust. Top with the remaining shredded cheese then put it in the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until the crust turns golden and the cheese melts properly.

Step Five

Take it out, garnish it with some chopped parsley and ground black pepper, then serve.

A Few Tips To Make This Mac And Cheese Pizza Recipe More Mouth-Watering

Here are a few tips that can help you in making your mac and cheese pizzas more delicious – 

  • If you want this pizza to have a thin crust, then you will have to roll the pizza dough on a big sheet pan. Rather than reducing the amount of topping on your pizza, you’ll have to spread all the toppings properly across the thin crust to make sure the pizza doesn’t turn out to be soggy.
  • You can add some bacon to your pizza to add some more texture and flavor. You can either fry the bacon or just lay the bacon on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and bake for 20-25 mins. at 400 degrees to make it crispy, then add to your pizza.
  • Rather than using pre-shredded cheese, shred the cheese on your own to ensure a proper melt. Pre-shredded cheeses tend to have a coating of cellulose to prevent them from sticking and clumping to one another.

Although pre-shredded cheese can be used and takes less time to spread, shredding the freshly right at that moment is best. Also, buying cheese blocks is comparatively cheaper than the pre-shredded cheeses, most of the time, so it will be good for your pocket as well.
