Garbage Pizza & Atomic Buffalo Turds

I will be honest with everyone, ever since the failed attempt at Chinese I am fearful of creating another recipe and posting it. I have been having problems coming up with a good one for the Spinach and Chicken Pasta Toss. Daniel and I even went to the mall today to get his replacement wedding band and when we stopped in the food court for a snack we discussed the different options of possible sauces for it. The sauce has me stumped. Does it even need a sauce, who knows. Either way we didn't have it for dinner tonight and trust me when I say that doesn't hurt my feelings. Our fridge is stuffed to the max with leftovers from last night so I didn't want to add to the chaos. Instead for dinner we made our garbage pizza since we had all of the leftover ingredients from last nights dinner and previous nights dinner. We have made this pizza once before using a store bought crust but tonight we made our own since neither of us were in the mood to go to the grocery. Plus after learning that my tire on the Equinox is not repairable and will need a new $140 tire, money is going to be tight and every cent counts around this house. Good news though, the jeweler is replacing Daniel's so called indestructible wedding band for free. They also informed us that even though the ring is indestructible, it is a brittle medal so dropping it on ceramic tile like Daniel did, can shatter it. Doesn't quite make sense and that information would have been useful before we purchased it three years ago, but whatever. Indestructible my tushy. Sorry, got a little sidetracked there, back to the pizza.

Here is what you will need to make our garbage pizza;

1 Pizza Crust, you can either make your own like we did tonight, or you can use a store bought.
Leftover pulled pork
BBQ Sauce
Onion, chopped
Cheeses of your choice, we had leftover mozzarella, mild cheddar, and parmesan.

1.) Take your pizza crust and pour on your BBQ sauce.
2.) Layer your pulled pork, top with your chopped onion, sprinkle with your cheeses. 3.) Top with your BBQ Rub. A thin layer is all that is needed.
Now you will notice I didn't measure anything. It is hard to do when everyone has their own preferences. You as little or as much of the ingredients as you would prefer. You will cook your pizza according to the instructions provided with your crust. For the last minute of baking we turn the broiler on and let the top get a really nice brown color to it.

Now as promised, here are the atomic buffalo turds. Daniel did these on the smoker, however you could get away with doing them in the oven.

Here is what you will need;

10 Jalapeno Peppers

1 Block of cream cheese, you will only use about half

1/3 C. Shredded Mild Cheddar

5 Pieces of bacon, cut into two pieces


1.) Begin by cutting the tops off of your peppers and with the handle of a small spoon scrape out the inside of the pepper. Most people take the easy way out and cut the pepper in half and scrape and stuff that way. Daniel found using the spoon allows you to get down into the pepper without the need to split it.

2.) In a separate bowl mix half of the block of your cream cheese along with your shredded cheddar.

3.) Stuff your cream cheese mixture into each pepper, filling to the top of the pepper.

4.) Wrap the top half of your pepper with your slice of bacon, use your toothpick to keep the bacon in place.

5.) Cook or smoke until the bacon is cooked and the pepper has softened.

I hope you enjoy these recipes, they are both really good although I wasn't brave enough to try the buffalo turds. Daniel and my Dad really enjoyed them so that was a good sign. I will try to post a few new recipes next week but I will be taking a break starting Thursday because I have to do my prep for the dreaded colonoscopy on Friday. Everyone please keep me in your thoughts and prayers that they finally figure out what is wrong with me. I have been sick since July having attacks that started every few weeks and that now without my steroids would be a daily occurance. The Doctor feels my Crohns disease is finally in remission so they are all stumped as to what is causing my problems.

Mmmm...this looks delish! I used to make a pizza like this all the time, sometimes I added cilantro as another topping.

Atomic Buffalo Turds? LOL! You are too funny! I love bacon wrapped stuffed jalepenos. We use turkey bacon (hubby doesn't eat pork). Thanks for making me chuckle this early Monday morning.
