Our family is crazy about pizza! I know a lot of people who have weekly pizza night. Here at the house, ours is every Saturday night. We call it “Pizza & AG” night, but I’ll explain the AG part later.
This has been going on for YEARS! We started this when our oldest was a toddler. During times when there wasn’t much money, we feasted on Totino’s frozen pizzas, which I would catch on sale for $1 a pizza. I would purchase three little pizzas for a grand total of $3! We couldn’t make them from scratch cheaper than that.
Since those early days of our pizza night tradition, we’ve added a couple more children, and a vast variety of pizzas. As we started to tire of the standard pepperoni, it became a fun challenge to find new pizza recipes. Pepperoni is still our stand-by when we take a night off from cooking and bring home a pizza, or we are stumped on ideas, or we’re just craving pepperoni!
I thought it would be fun to start sharing some of the different pizza recipes we make each week.
I’ll start with this recipe for Barbecue Chicken Pizza. Click the highlighted link for the recipe.
Besides the expected chicken and barbecue sauce, this pizza delivers (no pun intended) a tasty combination of Gouda and mozzarella cheeses, topped with red onion and cilantro.
We keep this one in the pizza rotation and it cycled around a couple weekends ago. It is one of Joel’s favorites! I don’t usually serve a side with our pizza, but for Barbecue Chicken Pizza, I always add baked sweet potato fries. They just go so well together.
Oh, and the AG part? It stands for Andy Griffith! We always watch The Andy Griffith Show on pizza night, thus the “Pizza & AG”. It’s our favorite show and we’ve been watching it for as long as we’ve had pizza night. We’re total AG geeks and know every line of every episode!
Over and out!
(You AG fans will get that- wink)
