We loved Cici's pizza so much that we made our own mac and cheese pizza! It is quick and easy!

  • Bring a small pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook cavatappi in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but firm to the bite, 10 to 11 minutes. Drain and return pasta to the pot.

  • Stir 1/2 the cheese sauce and butter into the cavatappi pot over medium heat until butter is melted and pasta-cheese mixture is combined. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Spread a thin layer of cheese sauce over the pizza crust. Sprinkle shredded Cheddar cheese over the cheese sauce onto the crust. Pour pasta-cheese mixture over the Cheddar cheese, and top with another 1/2 the cheese sauce.

  • Bake pizza in the preheated oven until golden and bubbling, 8 to 10 minutes. Let rest for 2 minutes before slicing.

This was a surprisingly good yet easy macaroni and cheese pizza:) My commissary in Germany doesn't sell cavatappi pasta so I had to use plain elbow noodles. I used a cup of noodles cooked them to just al dente and once I added the cheese sauce and butter liberally added salt and pepper:) I also used quite a bit more than a half cup of shredded cheese as I wanted the browned cheese on top! Overall a pleasant surprise and my husband 2 year old son and I really enjoyed it! Read More
