I'll take a plateful of everything please, with the exception of the pizza crust!

Am not big on carbs!

Oops! Went back to see entire recipe and directions ... not just looking at pics (drool) this time.

Has no crust, is a "casserole" type dish broiled in the oven. In that case, hang the carbs, and go heavy on the mozzarella! Yum!!!

Oh yes, please have ready to pick up by 7:00 pm. tonight please! Thanks! :biggrin-new:

Is there no "on the plate" pic because it never made it to a plate?

It was ugly on the plate, it dont hold together like a pizza. Its more of a casserole. But tasted pretty good!

Imagine what would have happened if you'd actually made the pie and eaten it.

It's pizza without the crust. I've got to try that.

I wonder how that would be if you did enclose it in a pizza crust of some sort...

I remember Pizza Hut used to have something along the lines of a baked pizza "pie", with ingredients in the middle and topped with additional crust, sauce, and cheese.

Forget what they called it, but it was GOOD!

This looks like it would be just as good a candidate for the same treatment...

Could try wrapping it in a soft flour tortilla, like a burrito.

Mercy! Now I really want one, darn it! :biggrin-new:

After a false start with this last night (in the middle, I started having issues catching my breath...ended up in the ER and had breathing treatments, diagnosis was bronchitis)...we had this tonight. Ended up in two casserole dishes and since I was reheating it from a cold state, I baked it for 30 mins first. I did manage to get it in the casserole dishes and in the fridge before leaving for the ER but dirty pots, pans, etc were still waiting on me when I got home 7 hours later.

The second casserole dish is in the freezer and will be there for another day sometime in the future.

Also I made it with Rigatoni noodles as I did not have any Ziti in the house. Turned out pretty good.

NOW you tell me...okay, won't make that again in this house...we have NO exhaust fan in the kitchen (don't ask, we just rent the place and it's 70 years old).

I think my other issue was store brand pepperoni...not good quality! Told my husband we would not use that one again.

I should add that warning to any recipe I post that has highly seasoned meat that has to be browned! Some spices can really gag you! Trust me, I know!

WTF! Did you really send that nice Southern lady to the hospital. Dude!

You OK? How'd the dish turn out?

Yes, I am okay...resting and taking meds per doctor's orders. I see my PCP on Monday for a follow up to this.

Considering it was a day late going in the oven, turned out very well. My husband likes it. We are eating the leftovers for lunch at this point. The second one is nicely frozen and wrapped for a future date.
