Garlic naan serves as the base of the pizza. It’s soft, flavorful, and easy to keep on hand for times like this. It also works well toasted on a charcuterie board served with cream cheese dip, or as a replacement for bread in sandwiches.
This is a great way to use up leftover mac and cheese. Ideally aim for something with smaller noodles but whatever you have kicking around in your fridge is great. If your fridge is lacking in cheesy goodness, you can make some fresh. I’m partial to the simple stovetop mac and cheese recipe. The cheddar and parmesan cheese sauce compliments this recipe well.
Whatever pizza sauce you have on hand is great. We’re going for quick and easy and nothing says easy like spooning marinara out of a jar to assemble these pizzas. If you’re a sauce purist and need fresh made sauce, this recipe looks fantastic and you can freeze the rest for any other pizza related emergencies that may come up.
Mac and cheese pizza is the perfect marriage of two of the best comfort foods in the world. All of the ingredients you can keep on hand for any time you’re feeling for some cheesy goodness.
