Pizza Hot Dogs


Pizza Hot Dogs

We just returned home from a week vacation back to New York.  Though it was a fun time it was BUSY!  We visited friends and laughed until our faces ached and our sides hurt.  The kids danced in a Feis.  We went to a 96th birthday dinner for my mother-in-law.  Had an orthodontist appointment for my daughter.  She may get her braces off at her next visit!  And, visited with my parents who were on their way south.   I am ever so happy to be home to rest.

So, dinner was whatever we had in the house which wasn’t much.  I had to get creative and this is what we came up with, Pizza Hot Dogs.  Served with a side of baby carrots and dip this was our first meal home.

Ingredients:

  • 8 hot dogs (use your favorite brand)
  • 8 hot dog rolls
  • 1 (8 oz.) jar pizza sauce
  • grated cheese – I used a mix of mozzarella and cheddar
  • your favorite pizza toppings such as olives, mushrooms, pepperoni, Italian sausage (precooked), peppers, onions, etc…

Directions:

  1. Cook your hot dogs as you normally would.  Boil, broil, bake, grill, etc…  We prefer ours on the George Foreman Grill.
  2. Turn your broiler to preheat.
  3. Once hot dogs are cooked line your hot dog roll with 1-2 TBSP of pizza sauce and any extra meat you are using pepperoni or Italian sausage. 
  4. Place the hot dog on top of the sauce and or meats.
  5. Add your toppings and cheese.  We did a little bowls of everything so each person made a personalized hot dog with all their favorite toppings.
  6. Once cheese has been placed over the top we used different markers for each one – My daughter’s above had the mushrooms on top, my son’s had olives – just so you can tell which goes with each person.
  7. Place hot dogs on cookie sheet and place in broiler until cheese melts and starts to brown.  This may be as little as one minute so watch them closely!
  8. Remove from oven and serve.
