Dinner on a Dime: Pastrami Pizza

Bring your pizza dinner up a notch with this homemade treat that’s an instant favorite with kids and adults alike!

Yield: 4 servings

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 55 minutes

Ingredients:

1 package ready-made pizza dough
12 ounces sliced deli pastrami, cut into long, thin strips
2 Spanish onions, diced
1 cup mayonnaise
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon sugar
½ teaspoon mustard
3 medium-sized sour pickles, finely diced (optional)
¼ cup hickory-flavored barbecue sauce, for drizzling
Oil, for sauteing

 

Directions:

Heat three tbsp. oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Sauté diced onions for 20 minutes or until golden.
(Tip: to achieve perfectly golden onions, it’s best to keep flame on high for the first 5 minutes, and then lower to medium-low heat.)
Add pastrami strips and sauté for an additional 5 minutes.
In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, garlic, black pepper, sugar, mustard and pickles.
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Spread a thin layer of the mayonnaise mixture over pizza crust, then top with the pastrami mixture. Drizzle with the barbecue sauce.
Bake for 25 minutes.


Tips:

If you’re left with more mayonnaise mixture than you can use, add 2 tbsp of water and 1 tsp of sugar for a delicious salad dressing. Makes a wonderful and healthy side to round out your dinner! You can swap the pastrami for pepperoni slices or your favorite deli meat.
