Chili Cheese Dog Pizza

You might think, upon hearing the utterance “Chili Cheese Dog Pizza” that we had come unhinged but you would be wrong. Just take a look at that golden deliciousness! Yum hat 3 people. HAT THREE!!

OK, so you have a crazy idea which is Chili Cheese Dog Pizza. You think it’ll work because what is really bad about crust, chili, cheese, onions and hot dogs? Just because you don’t standardly see Chili Cheese Dog Pizza on any pizza menu (and if you do, let me know where you live cuz I want to order from THAT pizza place!) doesn’t mean you can’t have it. Au contraire! We at the booniverse (i.e. mostly TheMan) have come to your aid and bring you a kickin recipe for [cue reverb]

First, the chili. You could go with canned but we made our own.

1 lb ground turkey
1 onion, chopped
1 ~14oz can tomato sauce
1 ~14oz can kidney beans

Brown turkey and onions. Add tom sauce and beans. Simmer 45 minutes.

Next, the crust. We snagged a pizza dough crust recipe from the User Manual & Bread Recipes for your Oster Bread Bot. On Page 64 is a perfect crust recipe, although I might suggest the 1.5 pound recipe unless you have a baking stone bigger than St. Paul. We went with the 2 pounder so here it is:

Pizza crust
4 c. bread flour
2 tsp active dry yeast
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1 3/8 c. water
3TBL olive oil or vegetable oil

Combine ingredients and do some fiddly bits with the bread bot which probably equates to kneed dough until elastic. 5 minutes? 10 minutes? You may have to get a bread bot of your own to make this recipe because I have no idea how long to kneed dough anymore. ANYWAY! After you do your kneading or watching your bred bot do its kneading, spread out your dough into your desired crust shape. We went with round but if you’re a square pizza eater that’s just fine too.

Did I mention to preheat the oven to 400 degrees? No? Do that.

Slather the chili onto the pizza crust like it was the pizza sauce for your pizza. Because it is in this case. Top with shredded cheddar, sliced hot dogs and onions. Bake in oven 15-20 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Eat.

2007: I also want to jump off the edge of the world just to see how long the game will render a falling gnome before it gets bored and kills off my crazy toon. What?

2006: Two out of three dogs approve of the new set up. “Can we help? Huh? Can we? Please? I want to be the one who taste tests the bacon!”

2005: JSFR: Ramune

2004: I don’t want to work, I want to play on my drum all day! Except I don’t have a drum and I don’t really play drums anyway but the sentiment is so there.

2003: Hee, I just realized that Catholic is spelled Cat-Holic, like someone who can’t get enough cats.

    Back in the day, there was a place in Detroit called American Pizza Cafe. Jeff and I went and got their Coney Island pizza. Sooooo good!!! (Those were the pre-Kosher, pre-religion days. Sigh).

    Dude, our pizza was totally all Kosher! We used turkey dogs. Mmm, coney island pizza…

    You aren’t supposed to mix meat and cheese 🙁 (Or have shellfish and a bunch of other things). You know, I think I should start doing more for the religion and then I could eat what I wanted and not feel guilty! I just do this b/c I do very little else for the religion and if I die, I figure I can say, “But look!!! I didn’t mix the meat and cheese!!!! I didn’t eat the yummy Coney Island pizza!!!!!!!!” and God of course will be all, “Why, come on in, my daughter!” and all is well.

    Oh hey–I got a BSOD yesterday and totally thought of your shirt.
