OK. So technically not really pizza. But I did get your attention, didn’t I? I’m on a flatbread pizza-y kick right now that I wanted to tell you about.
First stop. Hawaiian Pork ‘tacos’.
I made this yummy crock pot Hawaiian Pork Tenderloin last week. I got one of those crock pot pouch thingys that they have now where you can just dump it in the crock pot and add meat. If I could remember the name of the brand, I would totally pimp it out. It was awesome.
But I had leftovers.
I hate leftovers. Loathe leftovers. Despise leftovers.
You get the idea.
I knew I had to re-purpose the meat, but I didn’t have a game plan until crunch time (zero dark hungry hours). I looked in the kitchen and had tortillas, black beans, and shredded cheese.
The black beans were in a microwaveable pouch. Which is an awesome idea because the canned refried beans are a pain in the bean.
I put the beans (that I warmed up a little) on the tortilla, then the meat and some of the Hawaiian sauce. For the kids, I just put some shredded cheese on top. For the adults, I added some pickled jalapenos. I then popped them in the oven until the cheese was perfect. For me that’s when it gets those brownish crusty bits.
It was flucking amazing!! In fact, this is one of those times where the leftover tasted better than the original dish. For the side, I made a coleslaw using plain yogurt and pineapple.
My second flat bottom dish was technically a flat bread pizza.
I used wheat pitas that I brushed with some olive oil and sprinkled with some garlic salt. For the boys I used some tiny pepperoni and italian shredded cheese. For Hubby, some sun-dried tomato pesto and cheese. For me. I used the pesto and olive spread with a little cheese.
We ate our ‘pizzas’ with Progresso Tomato Basil Soup. I added some Garlic Kale Chips in my soup. My pizza dipped in the soup was delicious 🙂
