Free Recipe Wednesday! (Pizza Dogs)

Welcome again everyone to another Free Recipe Wednesday.  Today's recipe comes from my friend Nate.  Every Tuesday night we have video game night (yes I'm a bit of a gamer) at his place and last night he made these Pizza Dogs for all of us and they were so delicious I had to feature them on my blog this week.  Nate said that he used to get something similar to this from Orange Julius but apparently they are no longer available, at least not at our Orange Julius, so he decided to make up his own.  There are 2 things I really like about these Pizza Dogs.  First, the balance of hot dog to pizza sauce to pepperoni was spot on.  No one flavor took over and I think that was really what made them so good.  Second, baking them in the oven for 5 minutes really finishes these off nicely.  The cheese melts obviously but also the buns get slightly toasted and it even makes them easier to pick up and eat like you would a regular hot dog.  This is definitely something that I will be having again.  Give them a try and see if you agree about how good they are.  As always, please leave comments below.
