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

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (12 inch) pre-baked pizza crust
  • ¾ cup cavatappi (corkscrew macaroni)
  • ⅓ (16 ounce) jar cheese sauce (such as Ragu® Double Cheddar), divided, or as needed
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • ½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Place pizza crust on a baking sheet.
  2. 2 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.
  3. 3 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.
  4. 4 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.
  5. 5 Bake pizza in the preheated oven until golden and bubbling, 8 to 10 minutes. Let rest for 2 minutes before slicing.

  3. 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 - Read more ...
