Seeing how much of the country is freezing this week, I’m willing to bet that the general crockpot population (yep, that’s a thing) is feeling the love. If you find yourself with any leftover pot roast, then I have just the recipe for you.
Heck, it was so good even if you don’t have leftover pot roast you should probably just make one now so you can make this pizza.
In our household, a good crockpot meal will last for days. But (much to my husband’s dismay) I get tired of eating the same thing for days at a time. I’m really trying to get better at this. So re-purposing our meals is key.
Last Friday morning I was preparing dough for our weekly pizza night and I remembered that we had leftover pot roast.
It was sitting in the outside fridge and I could basically hear it crying out to me:
“Don’t forget me!”
“Ditch the pizza, use me up!”
“Alex will be so disappointed if you let me go bad”
Talk about a guilt trip.
I couldn’t ignore the pot roast, but didn’t want to break tradition. So I put the pot roast on the pizza. Problem solved.
Pot roast + gouda + parmesan + onion + arugula = pot roast pizza.
No one was mad.
