Manwich Sloppy Joe Pizza

Manwich Sloppy Joe Pizza

Sloppy Joe’s! I had me at sloppy Joe’s. These messy little beef bombs are as satisfying as they are sloppy. And what better than making a Manwich Sloppy Joe Pizza. I don’t know a single person that doesn’t enjoy a good ol’ sloppy Joe, and if you’re like, “Hey man, I don’t eat meat?” I hear ya! But beyond meat sloppy Joe’s are probably fine, maybe… you’ll have to tell me how they went.

But we can all agree that everybody loves a Manwich sloppy Joe. And how can you not, so darn simple, so damn tasty. Beef, sauce, bread and cheese. Let’s do this! This Manwich sloppy Joe pizza recipe takes an old classic favorite to the next level and funny enough, actually helps keep the sloppy Joe in check, so you don’t slop any of that Manwich goodness on to the floor. No Joe for you floor!

Butter Chicken Pizza

Butter Chicken Pizza

Butter Chicken Pizza

The thing that makes this butter chicken pizza recipe so special, well it’s not just one thing. There is some magic happening here with the comforting butter chicken sauce, thick pan-seared and oven-roasted slices of chicken coated in more sauce. And you can’t forget the layers of red pepper and onions for some crunch and freshness, but those are oven-roasted too, ’cause why not.

I’ve had a lot of butter chicken pizzas but this recipe is by far the boldest one yet. Most of the time you will find tiny cubes of “I think it’s chicken”, but not here! Not at Weird Wild Pizza! Here we deliver giant pieces of delicious chicken you will never forget.
