Reviews for Upside-Down Pizza Bake
"Delicious and super easy; I really liked this served with a simple Caesar salad."
"If you like the taste of pizza without the work, this is a keeper."
"Instead of spaghetti sauce I used pizza sauce. I also sautéed spinach and added it in. It turned out delicious! The advantage is you can add all the toppings you like!"
"Sandy, thanks for the inspiration. This is a keeper!"
"The bones of this recipe are really good. I made mine with left over bolognese sauce and no mushrooms since my family won't even look at them. It tasted good but I think it needed more sauce on the bottom to go with the biscuity topping. Otherwise, the taste was really good and it came together super easy. A great quicky casserole!"
"My family enjoyed this very much. Goes together fast and lends itself to different toppings."
"This is an excellent base recipe that is easily modified. I omitted mushrooms and doubled the cheese and it was great."
"Oh so delicious! A super easy recipe that can easily be adjusted to your family's tastebuds."
"This recipe is super easy and increadably fast! I like to use spicy italian sausage to add a little kick and everyone in my family devours it! I also added a bit more sausage."
"I have a large family, so I altered this recipe a bit. Since my children tend to pick mushrooms out of food, I opted for the spaghetti sauce with mushrooms (they couldn't tell). I also doubled the sausage, and cheese. This is a very easy dish to make, and very delicious! I have made it twice in the past week (at the request of my family)."
