Kind of a Reuben Sauerkraut and Swiss Pizza


We made it ! FRIDAY!!! Fridays always make me think about Steve Urkel, you know, the geeky guy from the show Family Matters who's catch phrase was "Did I do that?.  Weird, I know, but when I was a kid, Fridays meant TGIF on abc (the Tv show line up) It was something I looked forward to all week.  Get out of school, go home, have dinner (usually pizza) and spend the night in front of the Tv. And honestly, not mush has changed. We still keep Fridays the same. Work, Pizza, and Tv.. Just now its not Family Matters and Urkel, but Netflix binge watching and me making the mister a fancy ass pizza. But if Family Matters makes it to Netflix… I will for sure be watching that!

 So anyways, This particular pizza was inspired by a small batch of kohlrabi and red cabbage sauerkraut I made, plus a block of swiss cheese that I found hidden in the back if the fridge. I guess it was meant to be.  The mister was much into this concoction… like I will be making this again and maybe again after that. Its kind of like a reuben, but without the corn beef, which you could totally add if you wanted, or the mayo and ketchup dressing, which you could swap in instead of the mustard sauce.  You can even make it vegan if you use vegan cheese. Do what ever you need to do here cause hey, its your pizza to eat.


The stuff. Pizza dough, stone ground mustard, shredded swiss cheese, kraut, and caraway seeds. 


The dough is rolled out and smeared with the mustard. (The mister said I could have added more)


Top that with the kraut


Cheese goes next and a good sprinkle of caraway seeds too.  Now stick that lovely into the oven.


And after 15 minutes, this is what you get… Bubbly, cheesy, crusty pizza.  


And it's for real one of the prettiest pizzas that I ever have made.  Slice and serve…. and eat in front of the TV.
