The first time I ever made this recipe was with my great-grandma. Every Saturday for many years, Crystal and I would spend several hours at our great-grandparent’s house. After the cleaning was finished, I loved helping my Grandmother in the kitchen. Even well into her 80’s and 90’s, she loved trying new recipes!
This was one we tried together – and I liked it so much that I copied it out and brought it home with me. It quickly became a staple in our family’s recipe box!
Upside-Down Pizza is an easy, kid-friendly, all-in-one dish. Add a bag of frozen veggies, and dinner is ready!
I rarely follow the recipe exactly, as I love mixing it up with different pizza toppings and spices. Feel free to improvise! (Note: If you end up adding a bunch of salty toppings such as olives or pepperoni, you will probably need to add less salt than the recipe calls for.)
This is a fun variation on pizza that even my pickiest eaters gobble up. If you are looking for something a little different to serve for dinner that only uses basic ingredients and can be at the last minute (or made up ahead of time and frozen) – this is definitely a recipe to add to your “must-try” list!
