Contest-Winning German Pizza Recipe

Meet the Cook: Most of our family lives in Pennsylvania. They visit us often, and I like to serve this simple meal when they do. Even if it's just my husband, our 1-1/2-year-old and me around the table, German Pizza is a favorite. We have 280 sows and raise pigs to feeder size. There's plenty to do, and quick meals are appreciated. I do a good bit of canning and freezing. I also enjoy sewing. And I love to read - especially Country Woman! -Audrey Nolt, Versailles, Missouri

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 28, 2014

Hmmm......the idea behind this recipe is great and it tasted ok. I was actually a little excited as I was making it. However, I (and others) just felt like it was a little bland tasting. If I make it again I will add some type of seasoning to the ground beef.
