Chili Dog Pizza. Oh Yeah.

So.....two days ago my son asked me to make chili dogs (he had one at school and really liked it).  Got a "Game-Day Chili" recipe from a Southern-Living Cookbook (recipe below) and make chili dogs.  fast forward to Friday - which is pizza night in my house.  Decided to make a chili dog pizza, among others. It was amazing - tasted JUST LIKE A CHILI DOG.  Also have posted pics of other pizzas made tonight.  

Pizza Recipe First:
Take a greased cast iron skillet (12"), fill with pizza dough (deep dish style).  Punch dough with a fork to aerate; spritz or brush with olive oil.  Fill liberally with chili.  Spread cooked hot dog slices on top of the chili.  Cover with cheese (used a cheddar/mozzerella mix, need some cheddar to make it taste like a real chili dog).  Had the egg up to 600 degrees, cooked it for 10 minutes until the dough was raised and cheese was just starting to brown.
