I almost always make some modifications to recipes I try, and this was no exception. I wanted to keep the dish healthy, however, so I subbed ground turkey for the ground round, added garlic, italian seasoning, chopped bell peppers, mushrooms, spinach, and onions. Pre-baking the crust for about 10 minutes prior to adding the toppings helped make the crust a little crispier, which is how we like it. Delicious result, and this is going into my recipe rotation!
I Make this all the time. I add 2 small cans of tomato sauce(basil,oregano & garlic) flavored. Drain the juice from the tomatoes. Pre Cook your pizza crust for 10 minutes by itself, then add meat mixture and cheese and cook an additional 10 to 12 min., till good and brown. The recipe from the cookbook calls for an onion, but I prefer it w/o the onion. Hope these tips help you! Everyone that tries it loves it and wants the recipe. Enjoy! :)
I am really excited about this recipe because it is so easy and good. I used whole wheat pizza dough that I baked for 10 minutes before adding toppings. Then I added cooked hamburger, diced tomatoes mixed with some pizza sauce, italian seasoning, black olives, red onions, light mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese. I then baked for about 10 minutes more. It was thick and delicious and so filling. I'm sure I will make again. Thanks for posting!
I made this using veggie crumbles instead of beef (I am a vegetarian). And, I sprinkled some spaghetti seasonings into the tomato/crumbles mixture. YUM!! And, with the new Weight Watchers Points Plus program, this came up to 5 points a serving. This was very easy to make and I will definitely be making this again!
This was really good! Both my kids even like it and they're really picky! I did make a couple changes. I added Green peppers, onions, mushrooms and black olives into the meat as I browned it and I also added an 8oz can of tomato sauce in with the canned tomatoes just to make it a little more saucy. It came out really well! I'm adding this to my regular meal list. Thank you!!
Delicious! I also subbed in onions, tri-pepper dice, olives, and pizza sauce. Can't believe how good this is -- husband loved it, too (and couldn't tell it was healthy!).
Very good! so good that my husband and daughter both had 2 pieces so that leaves one extra for my lunch tomorrow : ) I added mushrooms and next time will try it with pizza sauce instead of tomato sauce.
Super easy and my comfort food loving hubby loved it too.
This was very simple to make. It passed the kid and husband test and will definitely be made again when we feel the craving for pizza. I added in mushrooms, onions and green pepper for a more filling topping and will adjust the cooking time to a bit longer next time as the crust wasn't quite finished all the way through.
I have made this recipe several times now, and my family loves it! Doesn't taste like a ww recipe at all!
