I found a corned beef in the freezer! Yes, this is super exciting for my family. It means a break from chicken and ground beef for dinner.
I try to only do a big shop once a month. So as we start to get to the bottom of the freezer I am looking for different dishes I can make with what we have on hand in the pantry and freezer. This dish was perfect for that. I still had 2 corned beef in the freezer and a big bag of sauerkraut in the refrigerator. Perfect for a Reuben pizza.
As I started to make the pizza crust I thought why not change things up a bit and try a pretzel dough crust. It is not brown like a pretzel because for it to brown like a pretzel you need to boil the rolled crust in baking soda and water. I do not have a big enough pan to boil a pizza crust in. So, it is a pretzel dough pizza crust just not browned like you may expect.
This was a hit with the family. It is VERY filling. Each person only ate two smallish slices. My family likes to eat so this tells you how filling it really is. Some of us added an extra drizzle of Russian dressing over the top some preferred it without. Over all this was a delicious dish with plenty of leftovers for lunch the next day.
We served this with a green side salad to complete the meal.
