Carne Asada Pizza

Left over carne asada? 

Make Pizza!

I was trying to figure out what to do with my leftover Carne Asada, and then it hit me, 
I actually have leftover whole wheat pizza dough in the fridge. 


Normally, I would have rolled/formed the dough out onto parchment paper and placed
 it on my heated stone. I was out of paper so I just rolled it out onto the stone itself 
and it worked out fine.

I used my favorite pizza dough recipe found here, and substituted 1 1/2 cups of whole wheat
 flour for the white, which wasn't my intention at first, but was because I didn't have 
enough white flour. It turned out really good.

I kept it simple as far as ingredients go. 

Some olive oil drizzled over the rolled out dough, then topped with thinly sliced carne.
I sliced up some onion and yellow bell pepper into a bowl and tossed it with olive oil, 
Italian seasoning, salt and pepper and spread that over the top. 

Next, I sliced up some cherry tomatoes and added those, dotted on some feta, sprinkled on 
some cheddar and topped with freshly grated parmesan. A light sprinkling of salt , pepper and 
more Italian seasoning and another light drizzle of olive oil and it was ready to be placed
into a preheated 475 degree oven for about 15 minutes or so.

Delicious! We ate it with just a drizzle of salsa over it. Very yummy!
