This is more a technique than a recipe. I was watching Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives late one night, and they were at a place that made these huge pizza bowls. They looked way too big, and way too cheesy, but I thought the technique was cool and decided to try it.
I used some ramekins I had in the cabinet, sprayed them with Pam, and covered the bottom with shredded mozzarella. Then I filled them about halfway with a mixture of cooked, drained sausage (1 pound), 1 large can mushrooms, one small coarsely chopped onion that I had cooked with the sausage, a fistful of chopped basil and oregano from my garden, and a small jar of pizza sauce.
Then I rolled out a tube of refrigerated pizza crust, cut it into six parts, and draped one over each ramekin. (Michael helped, and those are his hands in the picture, not mine. I do not have man hands.) I baked them according to the pizza crust package instructions (I think it was 350 degrees for about 6 minutes), and then pulled them out and inverted each one onto a plate.
I ended up adding some more shredded mozzarella, because they just didn’t look cheesy enough (I guess that’s why that other guy was on the TV with Guy and not me), but they ended up tasting pretty fantastic!
What a great way to use up some extra veggies and make a quick summer meal. And since it’s frugal I’m linking it up to The Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe Swap, which is a great place to find frugal recipes every Friday!
