Slice a small piece of fresh garlic from a clove, chop in to small pieces and add to sauce.

Roll out tube of pizza crust. Use a 3 1/2" round cookie cutter and cut circles out of the dough. Re-roll the extra dough until you have enough rounds. Take the melted butter and brush it around the outside of the pizza dough round. On each round, place a 1/2 to1 teaspoon of sauce and a small cube of cheese on top. It may look as if the sauce will not fit and will over flow when you fold the dough, but the dough will expand when it is baking, making plenty of room.

Fold the rounds in half and place on a parchment covered baking sheet. Bake for 7-8 minutes.

Southwest Santa Fe Pizza

My love of Las Vegas is no secret. It is where I spent most of my adult life. It is where I  graduated college, and got engaged. It is where my son was born, and my husband and I went into business. We picnicked at Mt. Charleston, hiked Red Rock and skied Lake Mead. Needless to say, Las Vegas is such an important part of me, and close to my heart. I've teamed up with Vegas.com and I am excited! The Annual International Pizza Expo that is held in Las Vegas every year is coming up in March, and I am taking part in a fun challenge to create a unique pizza that is inspired by one of the hotels. I created a pizza that is southwestern in style, inspired by the Santa Fe Hotel and Casino.

Fajita Pizza

This Fajita Pizza is perfect when you are looking for something that is quick and easy to make for dinner. I bet you have most of the ingredients in your pantry or fridge. My family and I have been eating some version of this pizza for many years, and we never get tired of it! We have made it with just sauce and mozzarella, shredded chicken tossed in hot sauce topped with onions and 4 cheese mix with ranch on the side, and with alfredo sauce and chicken, scallions and fresh mozzarella. For us, the main ingredient is the tortilla crust. That is what makes it quick and tasty!

Breakfast Pizza!

This month the two ingredients for the Improv Cooking Challenge are bacon and eggs! I love these two ingredients, don't you?  I had a hard time deciding what I should make.  Should I go with breakfast, dessert, or an entree maybe? I finally decided on this breakfast pizza, and I am so glad I did! It was different and it was delicious. I think you will agree!
Breakfast Pizza
Shredded Potatoes
Chopped Onions
Chopped Red, Orange, and Yellow Peppers
Slice of Fresh Tomato, chopped
1 Egg
Pizza Sauce
Flour Tortillas
2 pieces of Bacon per Pizza
Fiesta Blend Cheese
Chopped Avocado
Sour Cream
Start your potatoes cooking on your stove top. 
Chop up your peppers, tomato, and onion.
Add the onions to the pan with the potatoes.
Saute your peppers in your frying pan.
Scramble your egg.
Place your tortilla in a frying pan, and spoon some sauce
 over the tortilla. Heat on medium.
Spread some potato and onion mix on top of the sauce.
Sprinkle some cheese over the potatoes.
Add your cooked egg by spreading it over your pizza.
Add your peppers.
Chop or tear your bacon into pieces, 
and spread the pieces evenly over your pizza.
Add some more cheese over the top.
Check bottom of your tortilla. 
It should be slightly brown and firm.
The cheese should also be melting by this time.
Take the pizza off the heat and add your chopped 
avocado pieces, and a dollop of sour cream.
Thanks for joining me today!
