Reuben Pizza

If you know me personally, I’m sure you’re thinking duh. Of course she did a Reuben pizza..but you’re right. Duh, of course I did a Reuben pizza 😆 For those who do not know me personally, Reuben’s and pizza are my two all time favorite things to eat. And to smack them together? Stick a fork in me bc I’m done.

So the crust, I did a quick pizza dough but subbed in half of the flour with rye flour. It does make for a thicker crust FYI but the rye taste with the traditional reuben toppings were just magic. You can also stick to your normal pizza dough because the toppings are where all our flavor is. Do what works for you! Hear me out though…instead of corned beef I went with pastrami. I was born a corned beef girl, but something happened one holiday…last Christmas. My father and I were making corned beef Reuben’s for dinner together and he brought over some thin sliced pastrami too and it was ever since I changed my ways. I LOVE pastrami. If you like corned beef more, nothing changes. Both are perfect for this. Let’s get to it!
