Ridiculous Pizza with Guinness
I initially wrote out all the toppings on this pizza, but there are a ton. And they’re all amazing. I don’t usually boast about my own cooking, but this is probably one of my favorite dinners I’ve ever made. It’s got a lot of moving parts, a lot of steps, but my tastebuds totally appreciated the effort. This is probably a better dish to make on a weekend or at the very least start ahead, making your dough and onions the night before.
The pizza crust was perfection. It turned out thin and crispy, but not too crispy. The recipe can be found here. I still have another half round of dough that I’ll be using later on and wouldn’t be surprised if I just make another round of this pizza. I don’t even like leftovers, but it’s THAT good.
Man, this pizza. I managed to save out a couple slices for tomorrow, but I can’t promise I won’t head back into the kitchen and scarf down the rest later.
- 1/2 recipe Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
- Guinness Sweet and Spicy Tomato Sauce or BBQ sauce
- Guinness Caramelized Onions
- Goat Cheese
- Roasted cherry tomatoes (optional)
- 4 Slices Crispy Bacon, crumbled
- Olive Oil
Place a lightly oiled baking sheet in the oven and preheat to 400
Roll out pizza dough on a floured surface. Roll it out good and thin. Let it rest a half hour or so if it’s too stretchy. Brush dough with a bit of olive oil. Add a little sauce. I don’t cover the whole thing, but if you’re into that, go for it. Get saucy!
Sprinkle pizza with remaining ingredients. Add some salt and pepper and carefully transfer the pizza to the hot baking sheet.
Bake for 10-20 minutes until the crust is golden. Let cool about 10 minutes, cut and serve.
