RECIPE: Chili Dog Pizza

As I mentioned, I've been working on migrating my recipes to this blog, so you may see more of them than usual.

Holy smokes, was this ever good! I don't know why I never thought to do this sooner. But since summer is approaching, I thought this would be a good time of year to post this recipe.

Chili Dog Pizza Recipe

Here is a printer-friendly version!

Chili Dog Pizza

1 pizza crust (homemade, store bought, pre-cooked, whatever!)
1 can hot dog chili (found with the canned chili, it's usually in a smaller can--14 oz?)
4-6 hot dogs (I used 8 Hebrew National 97% fat free hot dogs, but I felt it was a bit much)
cheddar cheese
onions, chopped fine

I'm not being specific with the amounts of everything used, or the nutrition content (because it completely depends on the products you use). Just pre-bake your crust for about 5 minutes at 450 F, then top with the chili sauce, cheese, and hot dogs. Bake until the cheese is melted and dogs are starting to brown, approximately 10 minutes. Then top with raw onions and mustard for serving. Beware--it's very messy! This is a eat-with-utensils kind of pizza ;)


  1. I absolutely love your recipes so I'm excited to see more of them! I love how you keep them simple (especially for busy weeknights) and delicious at the same time! Also this pizza sounds amazing and I'm putting it on next weeks menu!

  2. I can even imagine how much sodium and fat that meal has. It is really, really gross and has little nutritional value at all. Hopefully you balanced that out with a big fresh green salad with A LOT of veggies.

    1. Calm down Libby. Don't like it, don't eat it. It's that simple.

  3. What a great idea! When I was a kid growing up in the 50's and 60's, pizza was gaining popularity, at least in the Midwest, it probably had been popular on the coasts for years. But I remember my Mom saying, "You can put anything you want on a pizza, even hotdogs." And I'm pretty sure she made us a hotdog pizza, although it might not have had the chili base, which makes it genius, if you ask me.

  4. Only someone who grew up in Michigan is going to appreciate that one. LOL


I used to publish ALL comments (even the mean ones) but I recently chose not to publish those. I always welcome constructive comments/criticism, but there is no need for unnecessary rudeness/hate. But please--I love reading what you have to say! (This comment form is super finicky, so I apologize if you're unable to comment)
