Macaroni & Cheese Pizza, Oh Yeah!

After announcing on facebook that my 10 yr old had 9 different dishes of macaroni & cheese on a 6 day vacation my cousin suggested we try macaroni & cheese pizza.

How could it be that we had never heard of this cheesy mac pizza??
The boys have had 2 cooking classes this summer at a local kitchen store.
They wanted to start cooking their own lunches this summer and this seemed like the perfect first project!
Now, most kids like pizza sauce and spaghetti sauce but my boys aren't most kids.
They would rather eat cheese bread sticks at the pizza parlor and when they eat spaghetti it is topped only with cheese.
So there will be no pizza sauce on their Macaroni & Cheese Pizza but feel free to add your own.
We started with these ingredients:

Preheat your oven to 425ºF.
Butter the crust and boil some water.

Add 2 cups of pasta to boiling salted water; cook pasta & bake crust for 7 minutes.
Drain pasta.

Add 2 T butter, American cheese & milk (amounts of cheese & milk depend on your love of cheesyness)
Top pizza crust with cheesy macaroni.

Sprinkle with garlic pepper, optional (I told you my kids were different!)
And now it's time for more cheese!
Sprinkle your favorite pizza cheese blend over the macaroni & cheese.

Bake for an additional 7 minutes or until cheese is all melty & gooey.

Yum! Approval of the 10 yr old.
