Pizza in a Bowl...no crust no kidding
The kids are getting together tonight to watch a bunch of Dr. Who episodes. My son's a big fan--a "Whovian" so to speak. We fed them popcorn and cheese crackers and pizza. Oooh, but none of that for us. We can still have our pizza fix though. I made the Pizza in a Bowl. It is way too hot to bother with making a low carb pizza crust in the oven. All that yummy goodness is in the toppings anyway, so this is much easier!
Tonight, I just added some precooked ground beef, cheese, onions and pizza sauce in a small ovenproof dish. Everyone can add favorite toppings. I would love green peppers, but they are so expensive this year, I opted not. These are really good with pepperoni and sausage as well, but we had sausage for breakfast this morning, and we ran out of pepperoni. Probably good for my sodium levels to leave that one out. Anyway, just layer the ingredients in and pop them in the toaster oven until everything is melty and hot. Tonight I borrowed some crushed red pepper flakes from the pizzeria. My salad is pre-made and waiting in my Tupperware container, so everything was easy as pizza pie. Now back to the next episode...
