If you are planning on cheering on your favorite team, whether you've got the 'Burnt Orange' spirit, the Cowboys fever, or you're like me sticking w/ her Bears threw thick and thin, and this season looks like thin for right now.¬† Well,¬† the Cool thing is Bud Light is the official Beer of the NFL, so that helps a bit with the sting of the Bears loss, or helps elevate some Good Times when they win.¬† Here's a yummy and easy recipe that goes perfect with 'Your Game' & 'Bud Light'...
Here's the 3 main ingredients, Bud Light, your favorite sauce and a pizza crust.
The rest you can add/ subtract whatever you like.
Here's what Ted & I did..
Bud Light Pizza:
- 1/4lb of pepperoni diced
-6 slices of bacon cooked and crumbled
- 1/2 lb of hamburger
-1/4 cup of onion
-¬†14 oz of tomato sauce/pizza sauce (Classico Pizza Sauce Rocks) -bottle of Bud Light
- 1 TB garlic powder, oregano, thyme, black pepper, Italian seasoning (whatever your favorite seasonings)
- 2 cups of¬† your favorite cheese- mozzerella- a mixture.
-1/2 cup of parmesan cheese
- unbaked pizza crust/ or already prepared crust (just shorter cook time) You can use whatever toppings are your favorite.. chicken/pineapple... sausage and mushroom..whatever you like. It's your Bud Light Pizza!! Alfredo Sauce rather than tomato.. YUM!! Preheat oven to 450 uncooked pizza crust/ directions w/ the already prepared one (375 usually works out well) ¬†
-Fry the bacon in¬† a skillet and place the bacon on a paper towel. Once it's cooled break into pieces. Pour the grease out except for a little bit about¬† 1 TBs in the skillet and add the onions, pepperoni and the hamburger (90-10) and Bud Light. (you can add any extra seasoning to the meat mixture you like. I enjoy garlic/Italian seasoning). While the mixture is browning, put the tomato/pizza sauce in a sauce pan and add 1/2 cup of Bud Light w/ the seasonings if you are just using tomato sauce.. garlic,¬† thyme, oreganoItalian seasoning Rocks too. If you use a season pizza sauce that works too. ¬†Let it simmer.¬† Remove the meat mixture from the heat and the sauce once it's simmered for about 10 minutes.
- Time to make the BL Pizza:¬† Have the crust on a pizza pan/or big cookie sheet and put the sauce on it.... the parmesan cheese.. the meat mixture/veggies if you got them.. then a bunch of cheese on top! Bake! Once the cheese is bubbly, Golden Brown, it's ready to cool a bit then EAT!!¬†¬† THIS IS AWESOME! Give it a try for your next 'Football Game', 'Party/Tailgater' or even a yummy quick¬† dinner. It Rocks!!
