I was scared of tuna until college. In my mind, no meat or fish should come out of a can. If it’s supposed to stay cold to stay fresh, it should be in the cold aisle. Victoria showed me how awesome tuna noodle casserole was, however, and I fell in love. I had an amazing tuna melt while on tour a few years ago and I crave it every once in a while. Matt also loves a good tuna melt, and we used to make them all the time. One night while at the store, he had this crazy idea, why not make a tuna melt pizza? Now, when I first heard that, I thought “ew, pizza sauce and tuna salad?” but no, Matt’s idea was to just use crust, tuna salad and cheese. It’s genius, absolutely perfect. It’s so simple. Matt makes his own tuna salad (which I believe is the best, but maybe I’m bias), but you can just use store bought tuna salad. Granted, home made tuna salad isn’t hard either!
Matt’s Tuna Melt Pizza
tuna salad (either home made or store bought)
pizza crust or flatbread
cheese of your choice, cheddar is my favorite
- Make your tuna salad, take 2 cans of tuna, feed a little to the cat, mix it with about 1/2 cup of mayo, squirt of mustard, 2 hard boiled eggs, 1 tbsp of pickle relish. Spread the salad on the crust and cover with cheese. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 mins or until wanted level of crispy-ness.
