Garlic Ravioli Pizza with Polish Sausage


My family likes to try and stump me sometimes by taking two or three packages of meat out of the freezer and then have me try and make something different from each one. The other day they took out chicken, bacon, and Polish sausage.  Chicken and bacon were super simple. The Polish sausage stumped me…

Beer Brats & Caramelized Onion Pizza


Taking those things we love and turning them into something new for us! Brats are always on sale here and with the Super Bowl a few weeks ago sales were really great. I picked up a few packages to have on hand because they are like the hot dogs of the Midwest. If you read…

Barbecue Hawaiian Pizza


The ham is going away. I have used three meals from it – ham and baked potatoes, ham and cheese hashbrown casserole, and now barbecue Hawaiian pizza. My family isn’t tired of it because each dish has highlighted a different flavor and is something completely different. But, before they do tire of the ham I…

Cauliflower Pizza


I see cauliflower pizza crust recipes all over the place. I have been fairly curious about them, I am always up to try something new. But, I hate the thought of making something and wasting all the ingredients. We were at the grocery store and I saw these crusts on sale and thought I would…

Roasted Vegetable, Pesto and Chicken Pizza


Pizza is a great simple dinner when I don’t have a lot of time to get dinner on the table. I love the variety of topping you can put on it too. Our CSA share has been full of zucchini, summer squash, egg-plant, tomatoes, and large red peppers. I hate having anything go to waste…

Pizza Sliders


It’s back to school in most parts of the Northeast and Midwest this week. Both of my kids start today. It will be a long day until my son gets home so I can hear about how his first day in high school went. I have a 9th grader and a senior. Where has the…

Reuben Pizza on a Pretzel Crust


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…

Simple Chili Cheese Dog Pizza with Herbed Crust


The first day of summer is usually a day to celebrate for us. The longest day of the year is a day we generally go to the beach or watch the sunset over Lake Michigan. Yesterday was cool and cloudy so those things were not going to happen. Changes in traditions are tough for my…

Lasagna Bread – Revisiting an Old Favorite


This was one of my first recipes posted and one of my families favorites. Quick, easy meals are always tops on my list. This meal can be put together and baked in about 30 minutes. Just enough time to have the kids help you put together a salad and vegetable while the bread is baking!…

Philly Cheesesteak Pizza with Creamy Garlic Sauce


You know I love making some of our favorite dishes into new items. This is one of those dishes. Philly Cheesesteaks are delicious! I have made them into Philly Cheesesteak Pasta Bake (click for link to recipe), Slow Cooker Ground Beef Philly Cheesesteaks (click for link to recipe), and Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes (click for link…

Italian Sub Pizza


In a blog post earlier this year I wrote about how I get inspiration for dinners. One thing I said was I try to take something we like and turn it into something new. Make a favorite casserole into a sandwich, a sandwich into a pizza or a soup into a casserole. This is one…
