Tonight is Pizza Night with the 'grands'. Firing up the Oonie, and everyone gets to build their own pie.

Despite what the naysayers deride, I'm building one with fresh pesto as the base sauce, topped with fresh mozz' from the Italian deli, copious amount of Canadian bacon and PINEAPPLE, under a dusting of the finest Parm I can find.
I never considered doing a pesto based Hawaiian but that sounds amazing! My typical gripe with Hawaiian pizza is the tomato sauce is way too sweet combined with the pineapple. I'm going to have to give that a try!

Either in the brewery or on the road
Whole wheat crust, super cracker extra crunchy thin, olive oil, salt, Parm Regg, basil, onion all over, pepperoni half, gruyere/jack/chedd/moz cheese mix, more parm regg.
Oh, yeah. Oil along with the pesto, fresh basil garnish, and only the best Parmigiano Regiano

I used to base it with a red sauce, but agree with you that it comes out too sweet. A thin coating of good oil and then some really good pesto (my daughter spent a year in Italy; she knows how to make it) is the key, plus fresh parm from the deli.

I sometimes make a BLT pizza that is surprisingly good. Give the dough a little olive oil, a light sprinkle of cheese, some garlic, and homemade bacon. Cook it nice in the oven, then take it out and spread some mayo over it and cover with diced tomato and a lot of chopped romaine. Slice and enjoy.

I'm reminded of another pizza that sounds bloody awful, but is actually quite good:

Cheeseburger Pizza!

Just like your favorite burger. Start with your basic crust, then use half sauce/half ketchup to coat the base. Trust me, it works. Then add crumbled hamburger (fried and drained). Top with American cheddar (yes, cheddar), garnish with yellow mustard, pickles, grilled onions, sliced tomatoes if you want, but hold the lettuce.

As awful as it may sound, if you like cheese burgers you'll really like this pie.

Thats kinda scary you mentioned it, because we actually made cheeseburger pizza last night. I use mustard for the sauce, and top with pickles and onions. The ground beef I cook for a couple minutes before topping with it, but not very long because it will overcook in a 550F oven easily.

We do this too. The secret is the mayo, odd as it sounds.

So for what it's worth, Little Ceaser's has wings for 8 bucks. I didn't get them though. We did get 2 large pizzas for $13 though. I've made about a dozen homemade 16 inch pizzas in the past few weeks watching more Star Wars with my girls.

So trying to make this relevant to beer, I wonder why Pizza Hut quit serving beer. I've heard Chucky Cheese does but the ones I've been in did not serve it. Can you get a brew in Disney World? Where did the PIzza Inns go, they practically invented cheddar and Canadian bacon pizza.

All mindless drunken ramblings.
