Pizza Mac and Cheese


Can we just stare at this photo all day!? How amazing does this look!? It’s rich, creamy and delicious. The perfect comfort food. If you have tried (and loved) my hamburger mac and cheese, this is a step up!! I made it with ground chicken here but it’s also great with ground beef, if you prefer.
