Fantastic Bake Along – Pizza Party Results!

I don’t know about you, but my family LOVED our Fantastic Pizza Party:)!   Brenna@crochet539 and her family chose the theme and the recipe this month.  Yum!  Thank you Brenna:)! 

You can find the details and the recipe here.

For my pizza, I decided on an Arizona themed version.  Mine is a type of Navajo Taco or Navajo Pizza!   It was really quick and easy, not to mention DELICIOUS!!

The dough was easy to make, but I did have to add a few tablespoons of olive oil to it to get it to this lovely ball stage.   

I covered it and left it on the counter while I ran to the store.  It definitely over proofed, but thankfully, it didn’t affect the end result:)

I rolled it back into a ball and cut the ball into 10 or so smaller balls.  My daughter in law took the job of rolling out the dough into small mini pizzas about 1/4″ thick.

My son took the job of frying the dough into these beautiful discs of fry bread.  Mmmmm!  I can’t wait!  Here is another shot just to make your mouth water:) 

I was in charge of the Navajo Toppings.  

I browned some meat and onions.  I added a large can of beans, green chiles, and salt and pepper.  It is kind of a quick type of chile beans.

I put the crust on a round pan, and spooned about 1.5 c of the chile beans onto the crust and sprinkled cheese over the top.  I then placed the pizza under the broiler to get the cheese all melted and gooey.  Broiling also added a delicious char to the crust as well:)

Here are a few of my family’s Navajo Pizzas.  Oh my oh my were they yummy!!  We topped them with sliced cabbage and tomatoes.

It really was a party at my house.  Just look at the smile on my son’s friend’s face!!

And a Navajo Pizza Party wouldn’t be complete without SWEET fried bread.  

This is the classic way to serve Navajo fried bread, with honey.  I added a sprinkle of powdered sugar as well.

I am so excited to hear how all of your pizza parties turned out.  I am off to go read about them.  Here are the links:

If you didn’t join in the fun this month, I hope you will hop in next month. We bake the second week of the month and would LOVE to Bake along with you!

  1. Having spent much time in the Black Hills (South Dakota), Indian fry bread/tacos are a “must have” while on a visit. Your version really sounds yummy. Around our house, the only pizza served is homemade always and this one will have to be tried. I always let my dough proof in the ‘frig for at least 24 hours, or more, to really develop the gluten…and flavor. I’ve found that when in a rush, the dough can go from the mixer to the pizza w/o a rise time quite successfully!

    1. Oh! I’m so glad you love Navajo fry bread like I do! This was the first time I have ever broiled on the cheese. My family all agreed that it was a FANTASTIC addition to the recipe:). Next time you make them, give it s try and let me know what you think. I will have to remember the fridge for longer raising time. Why don’t you join us next month? It is so fun, I know you would love it!!


      1. I may have to check it out (although my July is looking a tad insane at the moment…….multiple family birthdays…..and I do mean “multiple”!!! LOL! Thanks for the invite!!!! Hugs…….


  2. That looks delicious. We used to make our traditional Navajo tacos using a big baked potato as a base. I still like to do that because it’s inexpensive and quick and easy. Homesick for the LDS booth at the state fair that always made Navajo Fry Bread – almost as good as the Navajo people in my years on the Res! Do they still have that both, I wonder.

  3. Tracy this looks incredible! The fried dough alone could be my meal, but then you added the toppings it put it over the edge of deliciousness. Thanks again for setting up the bake along, it’s lots of fun each month!
