This is my version. A bit heartier and a bit more friendly to the grown-up crowd. I still use the macaroni and cheese but add in several kinds of cheese, crushed crackers, and put it in a deep-dish crust. Cast iron works great for this.

Deep dish crust

hearty macaroni and cheese pizzaThis is a great way to use up any leftover cheeses you might have (although, who has that? right.) particularly the soft whites. Gouda, mozzarella, Parmesan, and white cheddar are the favorites in my house, I like to fill my crust to the top, if possible, with all that cheesy goodness!

Top the cheese with crushed butter crackers. No need to get fancy, simply grab several and crush them on top. It’ll be amazing! Drizzle a bit of olive oil on top and you are good to go!

The best part of this macaroni pizza recipe is the gooey cream cheese filling…don’t skip that part. Or the cracker crumble. Don’t skip that part either. And for goodness sakes….use good macaroni and cheese!! None of the no-name stuff. Get the good stuff. Β We recommend shells…they’re awesome on this pizza!
