Another awesome, really Texan, pizza is really a second day dinner. Meaning, it's made with leftovers! We do a traditional hand tossed crust, with a light layer of bbq sauce. Then we top it with shredded brisket, ranch beans, sliced onions, and some really good sharp cheddar cheese. LOVE it!

One of my MOST favorite pizzas has a light fresh tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, arugula, Italian cured ham, shaved parmigiano, balsamic vinegar, and sprinkled with toasted pine nuts. It sounds like the oddest combination, but is so INCREDIBLY yummy!

Margaret's Pizza Thin Pizza dough: rolled out & on the pizza stone Spread on top: chopped walnuts gorgonzola cheese, crumbled Brie cheese, sliced thin and scattered 2 pears sliced into spears drizzle a little balsamic over it all Bake at 375 10 min or until crust is finished. Remove from oven- Scatter Mixed greens (I like them bitter) Place back in oven for 5 minutes. (too long and the greens will wither up)

I LOVE nuts on pizza! This looks delicious. I usually just clean out the fridge when it comes to pizza, leftover bacon, rotisserie chicken, clams and any vegetable including leafy greens and string beans, you name it. The good thing about pizza is that it doesn't take a lot of anything to top it and have tasty results! I have even substituted traditional sauce with ranch dressing, Alfredo sauce and onion dip when in a pinch. I will be trying this recipe this weekend!

Instead of tomato sauce spread pesto on the base. Defrost frosen spinache , add a tiny amount of double cream, bring to the boil to reduce moisture. Spread the spinache on the pesto. Add mozzarella and bake the pizza. When it is done add fresh diced tomatos and rocket salad. Yum!!
