MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 10, 2014

Very good main dish using ingredients I always have on hand. I think it would be great to make with half sausage or add mushrooms or black olives for a deep dish pizza taste!

MY REVIEW

Loved it! My husband and picky eater kids loved it as well! I used ground turkey and instead of marinara I used canned tomato sauce with italian seasoning, garlic pepper, and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes, and baked in a 1-1/2 quart casserole dish. Will definitely add it to my rotation!

My family and I love this recipe. The only thing I do different is use half ground beef and half sausage. Quick tip: I make the sauce ahead of time and place in frig - then when I get home from work I make the dough (topping) and I'm good to go. I have made it in a 2 quart dish and in ramekins. Personally, I prefer the recipe in the ramekins. With a salad, this makes a nice meal.
