Pizza Hot Dogs

Yes! Give me a pizza hot dog any day and I’m a happy guy! Great sauce and ooey-gooey cheese with a little basil. What is there not to like? I approach these dogs exactly like I would a pizza crust. I can put the same toppings on my hot dog as I can on my pizza. Onions, mushrooms, pepperoncinis, it doesn’t matter what!

Pizza Hot DogsI make a big batch of marinara sauce in our slow cooker and keep some on hand in the freezer for easy meals like these hot dogs. Just warm the sauce a bit and spoon it over a cooked dog. This is also a great way to use up those last few tablespoons of jarred pizza sauce that we always end up with.

Also try my salsa dogs.
