I always find it hard to cook for guys. Basically, because most guys find my food too healthy, and get scared when I tell them I added cauliflower to their smoothie! Wich, I kind of understand. It's funny tho how some guys are scared to try healthy stuff, and don't like it when you tell them its healthy, but have you ever tried to not tell them you added something healthy and tell them after and ask for their opinion? At least my boyfriend is like that. I'm constantly trying to add something healthy, and most of the time he wouldn't notice. I am a health freak and he is the opposite, which is nice for us both I guess. He makes me eat more of the bad stuff and I make him eat more of the good stuff with makes us a good balance.
The other day we were having some of his friends over for dinner and I suggested making them all Norwegian meatballs because he loves his mom traditional Norwegian food. But he wouldn't risk me failing, haha! So what do you make for 4 hungry guys coming over for dinner? Homemade pizza of course!
We had taco the day before, so I decided using the leftovers from that dinner and made 3 taco pizzas. Then I also made 1 big pizza extra. Sometimes the easy, fast way is the best. So the crust for the big pizza was just a ready-made pizza crust from Peppes Pizza. Easy peasy and not fancy.
What you need for Taco Pizzas, from yesterdays taco dinner:
meat or beans
How you do:
Add the tortillas to a baking paper, and put in the middle of the oven on 175 degrees.
Keep in the oven for like 5 minus only, this way you make the crust more crispy then soggy, If you are short on time this is not nessesary.
Take the crusts out and add taco sauce as a pizza sauce, taco meat/ beans ready made with taco spices, onions, corn, crusted nachos and cheese on the top.
Add back to the middle of the oven again and ready when cheese is golden. This really depends on your oven.
What you need for family size pizza:
Ready-made pizza crust (family size)
Pizza sauce - I use pepper pizza sauce
The same way as the taco pizzas I baked the pizza crust a little before adding the topping. For those who don't prefer a crispy crust, this is not necessary. This time I did a half/ half pizza. I did half with what my boyfriend loves with is only pepperoni and cheese, the other half I made with Serrano, onions, and cheese. Pretty basic, but so good and super fast to prepare! A safe choice that everyone likes!
Hope you like it.
