Skyline Chili Pizza & Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Last year we started making our own Skyline Chili at home in big batches and then freezing to save time and use for a quick dinner. This stuff is good on top of spaghetti, baked potatoes, hot dogs, in tortillas as a wrap/burrito, and yes, on pizza! Shame on me for not dragging out my light box to take this photo.

This post is actually for 2 recipes - the skyline chili pizza and the whole wheat pizza dough. This was my first time using whole wheat flour and now I'm really not sure why I didn't try it sooner. It was great! I'll definitely make it again. We usually make one crust fresh and freeze the second dough for another time.

To help the crust get a little more crispy/not soggy, I spread out the dough onto the pizza stone and bake 5-7 minutes by itself. Then, I take it out, add the chili, cheese and onions.

Pizza Dough Source: Allrecipes.com

1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1 cup warm water
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup wheat germ
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon honey

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.

In a large bowl combine flour, wheat germ and salt. Make a well in the middle and add honey and yeast mixture. Stir well to combine. Cover and set in a warm place to rise for a few minutes.

Roll dough on a floured pizza pan and poke a few holes in it with a fork.
Bake in preheated oven for 5 to 10 minutes, or until desired crispiness is achieved.

Source for Skyline Chili Pizza: I think Donato's or Dominoes offered this in our area for a limited time, so we decided we could make this ourselves.

Skyline Chili (probably about 2 cups for a large pizza)
2 cups cheddar cheese
1 small onion, chopped

Make the pizza dough as directed above. Spread the dough onto a pizza stone and bake at 45 for 5-7 minutes.

Remove crust from oven and top with the chili, cheese, and onions and bake for 15-20 minutes longer.

You could also put black olives on this pizza!

I never thought to put it on a pizza!! I make a sykline casserole and skyline roll ups and I order the burrito when I go there......but pizza?! YUM!

Hmmm...never heard of this combo. I'm always up for trying something new!

Is that your pizza stone? Looks pretty seasoned! Mine's getting darker and darker...I love it!

Thanks - it is a bit different, but really good! Yes that's my stone, but the photo is deceiving. It only looks like that on the outside edge. The inside still looks new, but I'm working on it!
