This month we wanted to come up a different use for use tuna. That, we certainly accomplished! My husband actually thought of the idea. I turned up my nose when he first suggested it, but the more I thought about it, the thought grew on me. I knew I didn’t want to use a marinara, so came up with this aioli.

It is super easy because of a new yeast that I found a month or so ago. It’s Fleischmann’s Pizza Crust Yeast. I just mixed it up in my trusty Kichen Aid Mixer with the dough hook attachment. The dough was perfect! There is less spring back than you will get from traditional bread yeast, so it lays out however thin you might like it!

I even went easy on the aioli and used store bought mayonnaise, just added some fresh dill and the juice of half of a lemon. Therefore that took about 2 minutes.

So by the time the Kitchen aid had kneaded the yeast, I was ready to put the pizza together.

This pizza is so good! Keep an open mind and give this Tuna Pizza try!
