The Best Nacho Pizza

Nacho Pizza is fabulous and once you see and taste it for yourself you’ll agree.  Nachos very often have a real nice spicy sauce over them with melted cheese, also Onions, Peppers, chopped Tomato and Olives, Avocado or Guacamole and very often, Lettuce and Sour Cream.  Well, you guessed it.  those are all of my ingredients for this Nacho Pizza and if you dare to try it out for yourself, you’re going to love it.

Pepperoni Vs. Nacho Pizza

Clearly, there’s no comparison between a classic Pepperoni Pizza and a Nacho Pizza.  In fact I’m just showing off a nice pic I took of this Pepperoni using Vita Versa’s Pizza Peal.  And I am so glad they sent it too me.  I had this old Baking stone I hadn’t broke out yet and I’ve just been dying to use it.  So between the two, i can crank out some fantastic Pizza.

The Pizza Peel is easy to use and making pizza is a lot more enjoyable now when pull this off the wall to slide the dough in and out.  As you will see in my Nacho Pizza Video down below, owning your own peal makes total sense.  And it cleans up and stores with ease.  So if you’re interested in Vita Verse’s Pizza Peel, check out their page.

You might also need a few other recipes if you want to make your Nacho Pizza the same way I made this one.  I’ve got those links listed down below along with the Pizza Dough recipe as well.

Stromboli Recipe – How to make Stromboli Supreme

Stromboli Supreme main pic

My Stromboli is Huge!

I’m using enough pizza dough for one 14″ Pizza to make this Stromboli. It’s approximately 2 ft long so it makes it real easy to cut off a slice, just like you would a sub sandwich, to serve to family and friends.  Make yours however you want but I highly recommend making it this way.  The Stromboli is both fun to make and equally impressive when it’s served.

Stromboli

This Stromboli recipe follows the idea of a Supreme Pizza with fresh veggies and Italian meats but you can put whatever you want in it.  And that’s the best part.  I love vegetarian Stromboli’s because they have so much flavor.  Broccoli and Cheese Stromboli… Spinach, Onion and Mushroom Stromboli (Chicken)… Are you starting to see where I’m going with this?  The possibilities are endless!

Stromboli

You may need a good Marinara or Pizza Sauce for dipping so I’ll include a link for that down below.  You will also find a link for pizza dough in the ingredients if you need a recipe for that too.  Both recipes are restaurant quality and worthy of hanging on to or even sharing with friends and family.  Just be sure to tell them where you got it!
