Dorothy’s Democratic Pizza

Dorothy’s Democratic Pizza

Tell me that name doesn’t make you curious! What makes a pizza Democratic?!

Ironically this recipe was printed in the Republican Women’s Club cookbook from 1964. I love the opening clause of the cookbook as it states, “Adding a little spice to the cookbook are some good democrat cooks too!”

There’s nothing fancy about it but these are delicious! With kids home for summer this could be your go to summer lunch or a last minute dinner. They’re quick to make and the recipe states, “Teenagers love them, and men are particularly fond of these little goodies.” How can you go wrong with a testimony like that??

Sharp cheddar…don’t mess with the mild stuff. (Ok, personal preference…now you know mine!)
