Pizza of the Month - Nacho Cheese Pizza

Another crowd pleaser and family favorite. Who doesn't like nachos and cheese AND pizza? Combine both and be prepared to get ooh's and aah's from whoever sets an eye on it, Let alone eat it! This pizza was so delish and it is only available in your kitchen if you decide to make it. I haven't come across any menu as yet which has this particular pizza on it. So my friends, it is totally up to you to decide to make one for you and family or just drool over by looking at the pictures! Choice is yours.

I actually decided to make enchiladas with the sauce I had on hand. Didn't have the tortillas in my fridge. So I ended up making this flavorful pizza for us. Leftover sauce, I froze it which I used just 2 weeks before when my parents were with me. Gotta have them to taste this pizza too.

Everything is very simple and quick to put together. You make the pizza dough and while it's doing it's thing(rising I mean!), you make the sauce,shred the cheese. Once baked, enjoy and bask in the glory of having been able to make pizzeria style pizza right in your kitchen.
