Upside Down Pizza

I made this recipe for a girl's night and it was a hit! There was so much flavor and cheesy goodness in this that I didn't want to stop eating it! Just like the Pizza Burgers, you could add your favorite pizza toppings in this casserole (or whatever you have on hand). I love casseroles for that reason!

Upside Down Pizza-adapted from Taste of Home
Total Time 45 Minutes
Serves 8
  • 1 pound Italian sausage
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, chopped
  • 3 ounce black olives, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons, plus 1 cup all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seed, crushed
  • 15 ounces tomato sauce
  • 8 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated
Preheat oven to 425. In a large skillet, brown Italian sausage with onion, mushrooms, black olives and garlic. Drain once meat is no longer pink and return to skillet. Stir in 2 tablespoons flour, basil, fennel seed and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 2 minutes.

Transfer meat mixture to an ungreased 9x13 inch baking pan and stir in mozzarella and cream cheese. In a large bowl, beat together 1 cup flour, eggs, milk, olive oil, salt and Parmesan cheese until smooth. 

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
