Chock full of zesty flavor: Hot Dog Pizza Snacks
Mixing two snack food classics can be a bit risky, but when it's done right it can result in an unforgettable flavor explosion. Take this next recipe for example: we took a good old-fashioned hot dog and combined it with delicious pizza. The result? A zesty, hearty snack that will keep your family and friends coming back for more...
You'll need (for 4 portions):
- vegetable oil
- 1/2 of a green bell pepper, diced
- 1 onion
- 14 oz tomato sauce
- 1 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, chopped
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 package pizza dough
- 4 hot dogs
- 5 oz cheddar cheese cut into finger-sized pieces
Heat the oil in a pan and fry the green pepper lightly. Add the onion and tomato sauce. Season with rosemary, garlic, sugar, salt and pepper. Let the sauce simmer.
Pour the sauce into a casserole dish.
Cut the pizza dough in a zig-zag fashion to create four triangles. Remove the outer two triangles.
Now lay a hot dog at the bottom of each triangle and put a piece of cheese in front and behind it.
Roll the dough up to the pointy end of the triangle. It should look a bit like a croissant.
Put the hot dog rolls in the sauce in the casserole dish. Bake at 350 °F for 15 minutes.
We called it a snack, but as you can see what you end up with is more like a meal. So if you're tired of plain old hot dogs and pizza, try this unique fusion of flavors to give your taste buds a wakeup call!
