Mark has been asking to do a make-your-own pizza night lately. For some reason, we both put toppings on our own that we know the other hates. I made a BBQ chicken pizza with onions (Mark hates that), and he made a Dewey’s-inspired Billy Goat pizza with olives on it (which I hate). I don’t think either of us really did it intentionally though – maybe I speak for myself on that? We were both happy with how our pizzas turned out though so that’s what is important
I used Bandana’s BBQ sauce for my base, instead of tomato sauce.
I bought prepared black bean salsa. This had 2 important advantages: less chopping and less opening cans but only using a little bit.
I added chicken to the pizza and the black bean salsa.
Then I topped it with shredded monterey jack cheese.
Here is Mark’s pizza. The Billy Goat at Dewey’s is one of our favorites. Mark added salami and olives to the traditional ingredients: mushrooms, goat cheese, mozzarella, and sun-dried tomatoes. The base of the Billy Goat is olive oil.
The leftovers from my pizza lasted me all weekend! I guess that’s what happens when I put onions on things…
