Alternative to Pillsbury Pizza Dough For Ninja Foodi Chili Cheese Dog Bake
If you can’t find the pizza dough, don’t worry. Ours is located in the refrigerator section by the canned biscuits. If your store doesn’t carry the pizza dough consider buying crescent rolls. I have used these in a pinch, and it bakes up nicely as well. They are flakier, but it is still a tasty pairing. You would potentially adjust cook time, to ensure the rolls don’t overbake.
Can I Use Homemade Chili In Replace Of Canned
Absolutely! If you have some homemade chili on hand or in your freezer, go for it. We do can for the fact it makes it an effortless meal to prepare, but you are welcome to use homemade if you prefer that.
Best Way To Store Chili Cheese Dog Bake
If you find you have leftovers, merely place leftovers in an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to three days. After that, you will want to toss out any leftovers you might have. As it can spoil and go bad.
What To Pair As Sides to Chili Cheese Dog Bake
To be honest, we usually don’t pair this with other sides. It is hearty enough of a meal on its own. But you can pair with a green salad, coleslaw, steamed or roasted vegetables, for more options! Or if you want to go more of a classic route reach for a salty chip or even french fries.
Can You Make This Chili Cheese Dog Bake in The Oven
You sure can! Just follow the baking instructions on the dough package for temperature the oven needs to be an amount of time. The main thing is cooking the dough till it is baked through.
