Pizza...it is so versatile! We have pizza night almost every Friday night. You can do a gazillion things with pizza, but we find ourselves always defaulting to the same old cheese pizza, sometimes adding pepperoni or mushrooms. So a couple of weeks ago I decided to be CRAAAAAZY, and choose one of those gazillion options to try!
Beef and blue cheese is one of my favorite flavor combos. Of course, neither one would be considered an inexpensive ingredient, but all-in-all this pizza ended up costing us less than pizzeria pizza, so it was still a win!
Thing 2 was a little skeptical as I was preparing the pizza, because he does not particularly like blue cheese, but he ate this and enjoyed it! I think the mozzarella toned down the strong blue cheese flavor enough for him. However, it was still a prominent flavor (important for me!!), so we were all happy. Hooray!
Of course, could vary this by adding more of less of the mozzarella or blue cheese or steak, or even experiment with adding mushrooms or other toppings!
Thing 2 rating = (3 biscuits out of 5)
