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.

Just 10 minutes later in a 400 degree oven: DSC01318 DSC01319 DSC01320

The leftovers from my pizza lasted me all weekend!  I guess that’s what happens when I put onions on things…
