Jan,what I call chili beans are just canned PINTO BEANS with seasoning. They are just labled chili beans.Usually found with the canned vegs,.Don`t confuse them with red Kindey beans.The pintos are so much better than the kidney.beans..Tender skins and creamy inside.
Hope I didn't confuse you.
Thanks Rosie. I have bought pinto beans before when the recipe called for it. The chili recipe i use calls for red kidney beans, thus the confusion. So 'chili beans' are pintos with seasoning. I will look for them. Want to make Weebill's pizza chili. (and every other pizza recipe on this thread!!). Jan.
Here is my 2nd Pizza Themed recipe which I tried tonight, 1/17/14.
Cheddar Apple Pizza
Note: I also reviewed this recipe as well for my recipe rating and I was pleased with the results! I did make modifications to this recipe and they've been noted in the review!
Pastry for single-crust pie (9")
I used at least 2 large Granny Smith apples-actually, some were from another recipe which I'd had leftover apple
slices-I thinly sliced the apples
1/2 cup CHEDDAR cheese, shredded
1/4 cup EACH packed brown sugar and granulated sugar
1/2 cup combined chopped pecans & walnuts
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 cup ground nutmeg
2 Tbsp. cold butter OR margarine-I used margarine, cut into small pieces
Prepare pastry and roll out to fit a 12" pizza pan. Note: I didn't grease the pizza pan, but I DID use my Pie Partner pie shell insert pan on top of the crust and baked 10 minutes at 400o F. to make sure that the crust didn't pull away from the pan. I built up the rim in order to flute the crust-i had to work with the crust carefully in order to keep it pliable and flute the edges!
Arrange the apple slices in a single layer in a circular pattern to completely cover pastry. Sprinkle with cheese. Combine brown sugar, white sugar, nuts, cinnamon and nutmeg; sprinkle over the cheese.
Cut butter or margarine into small pieces and top top of pizza. I baked for 30 minutes longer or until apples are tender and filling is bubbly. I left pizza intact as I plan to treat one of my depts. at the local hospital where I volunteer. I put the pizza in the refrigerator. Recipe makes 12 servings.delowenstein:-)P

DH and I will be hosting a small Super Bowl party. I've been looking for a cold dip that I could serve. Below is a recipe that DH and I will try later this evening. If you are interested in seeing what it looks like, there is a picture of this on line. Wish I knew how to add it to this post. I will edit this post to give a review after we taste it. Lori
Pizza by the Scoop (originally posted in the August/September 1999 TOH, by Georgene Robertson of Pikeville, Ky.); 14-16 servings; Prep:10 mins.
2 pkgs. of cream cheese, 8 oz. ea., softened
1 bottle of chili sauce, 12 oz.
1 pkg. Canadian bacon, 6 oz., chopped
1 sm. onion, chopped
1 sm. green pepper, chopped
3/4 c. part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded
3/4 c. cheddar cheese, shredded
Spread cream cheese on an ungreased 12" pizza pan. Spread with chili sauce. Sprinkle with Canadian bacon, onion, green pepper, and cheeses. Serve with corn chips.
Ok, since it is just DH and myself, there was no way we needed 14-16 servings, so I cut the cream cheese to 1 brick, 6 oz. of chili sauce, 3 oz. of Canadian bacon, 1/2 an onion and 1/2 a green pepper. Kept the same amount of cheese. Placed the ingredients in a deep dish pie plate, but a regular one would have probably been just fine.
The ease of putting this recipe together was little to none, done in a flash. Let it sit several hours, and there is where I noticed a small problem--the chili sauce began to break down. I double checked to make sure it wasn't an expired bottle and it wasn't. Since it was just DH and myself, I made a note of it and moved on--wouldn't like that in front of my guests.
Next, after sitting on the counter 20 minutes to soften the cream cheese, came the all important taste test. I used the Fritos Scoops because of the weight of the cream cheese. Sorry, but to be very honest with you, both DH and myself were big time disappointed. We sat there and picked away at about half of it trying to figure what it was that we didn't like. Although I use chili sauce in several recipes, we felt this was what we didn't like in this dish. It just wasn't doing it, per DH.
Glad I made it? Yes. Would I make it again? No, a least not as the recipe was written. Maybe I'd change the chili sauce to pizza sauce and the Canadian bacon to pepperoni as it didn't taste anything like a pizza to either of us.
Morning! Here's my Pizza recipe that I made last night.
I increased the sausage to 3/4 lb., removed the casings and scramble cooked it, and drained it. I doubled the amount of the veggies and added some sliced green onion...used red bell pepper. Used 4-cheese blend and put 1 cup in the casserole and 1/2 cup on top of low-fat baking mix. Sprinkled 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning on top of veggies.
This was super easy to make, and I will make it again. The top crust truly tasted like pizza crust, and it was nice an crunchy. When cut, it came easily out of the pan...I used a large spatula.
Thanks for all of the recipes; I think they are all keepers!!!

These are some great pizza ideas and I am looking forward to trying many of them!
I spent yesterday cooking for our family Christmas, which we finally had today (yes...January 19!), so I wanted something quick and easy for our Saturday supper. I chose "Puffed Pizza Casserole" and will definitely make it again! I used my home canned pizza sauce instead of the sauce in the recipe and added mushrooms and black olives. Not only was it delicious, it was the perfect serving size for my husband and me!

I thought the same of Ann's upside down pizza. I've set that recipe aside for a Saturday lunch with the grandkids. I decided on Sausage Pizza Soup, by Beth Sherer from Wisconsin. Very tasty, everything on hand but used pork sausage instead of turkey. Very good. Sorry l haven't mastered the picture part yet. Janet
I know, I know...i'm a couple of days late. Just want to say, thanks Sue and Janie for the heads up on the Apple Crisp Pizza. Had DH's birthday cele. on the weekend, complete with cake. Today is his real birthday and he loves apple pie, so i made tha apple crisp Pizza this afternoon for him (& me too!) This recipe will be made many times in this household, let me tell you..Delish! A little goes a long way tho, so next time i'll make sure there's more than just the 2 of us to eat it. I'll take some to the DDs tomorrow. Jan.
I had my recipe picked out and all the ingredients when DH and I decided on the spur of the moment to take a little getaway trip. Well, with last minute packing, etc. I never did get my dish made. But it's never too late, is it? Tonight we had Slow Cooker Pizza Casserole.
I did a few things differently but stuck to all the same ingredients. First, as usual, I halved the recipe and still had some left over. Secondly, I did not use the slow cooker. I put it in a casserole dish and baked it for 30 minutes at 350º. End result was delicious. I didn't have any tube pasta so I used spiral pasta which worked well. This is a very easy recipe to prepare and I'm sure just as easy using the slow cooker. I used the turkey pepperoni and I think the regular would have been better but at least it was good for us - LOL. Really, there wasn't that much difference in the taste.

My family loves pizza so this is like the best challenge ever! I made 3 new recipes:
1 homemade pizza crust
1 C. Hoisin Sauce
1 tsp Garlic
1 tsp grated Ginger
2 C. Mozzarella Cheese
2 C. cooked, diced Chicken
1 can sliced Water Chestnuts
1/4 C. chopped green onions
1 TBSP cilantro
Spread hoisin sauce mixed with ginger and garlic over crust. Sprinkle cheese evenly over that. Layer chicken, water chestnuts, green onion. Bake in 35 oven for 10-15 minutes or until cheese melts. Sprinkle cilantro over the top.
I found this recipe idea on "life made delicious" blog. It was entitled Spicy Chinese Pizza but I changed it so much it barely resembles the original.
Chicken Pesto Pizza
1 homemade pizza crust
1- 6 oz container Basil Pesto Sauce
2 C. Romano Cheese
2 C. grilled, diced chicken
2 Roma Tomatoes, sliced
1/2 small Red Onion, sliced thin
Spread pesto sauce over crust. Sprinkle cheese on top. Arrange chicken, tomatoes, onion on top of that. Bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes until cheese melts.
This was originally a martha stewart recipe entitled Shrimp and Pest Pizza
Chicken Potato Pizza
1 C. Alfredo Sauce
1 C. Mozzarella cheese
1 C. Romano cheese
1 tsp Rosemary
1 tsp garlic
2 Potatoes, thinly sliced and baked in the oven at 350 for 5-10 minutes, until tender.
1/4 C. Green Onion, chopped
2 C. cooked, diced chicken
Spread alfredo sauce mixed with rosemary and garlic over pizza crust. Arrange cheese over the top. Add potatoes, green onion and chicken. Bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes until cheese melts.
I don't remember where this came from originally but again, I changed it so much it probably doesn't matter!!!
