BEEF + SAUERKRAUT PIZZA

In an effort to prove to a certain someone that sauerkraut as a pizza topping is a winning idea, I made a beef and sauerkraut pizza a few days ago.  It might not look like much, but it was one of the better pizzas I’ve ever made.  Said skeptic was blown away.  Mission: accomplished.

BEEF + SAUERKRAUT PIZZA

What you’ll need:

  • Pizza dough
  • Tomato sauce
  • Ground beef or pork (or brats!)
  • Oregano
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Sauerkraut
  • Mozzarella and/or provolone

How to:

1. Make/buy pizza dough.  Preheat the oven to 450 or higher.

2. Saute half an onion in a little oil until soft.  Add about 1/2 lb. ground beef or pork.  Season with salt, pepper, oregano, and red pepper flakes, and cook until the meat is browned.

3. Oil a baking sheet (I used a 9X13 brownie pan for a slightly thicker crust) and spread the dough to the edges.

4. Spread the sauce over the dough.  Top with the beef and big spoonfuls of sauerkraut.  Add a little more sauerkraut – you will be happy that you did this.  Cover it all with a bunch of cheese.

5. Bake until the cheese is melted and browned to your liking.…
