Upside-Down Pizza

Kids can help by sprinkling the cheese, measuring the basil and crimping the edges of the crust

Prep: 20 minutes
Bake: 30 minutes
Yield: 6 servings

  • 1/2 lb sweet Italian turkey sausage, casings removed
  • 1/2 lb ground turkey
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 (28-oz) jar tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 cups shredded low-fat mozzarella
  • 1 (9-inch) refrigerated pie crust

    1. Preheat oven to 375°F. In a large skillet, sauté sausage and ground turkey in olive oil until well browned. Break sausage into small pieces.

    2. Pour sauce over meat, and stir in basil. Simmer 5 minutes.

    3. Coat a deep 9-inch pie dish with cooking spray. Pour half the meat mixture into the pan. Sprinkle with 1 cup of cheese. Add remaining meat mixture and top with the rest of the cheese.

    4. Place crust on top of the filling, and crimp edges. Cut a few slashes in the middle and bake for 30 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.

How kids can help: Sprinkle the cheese; measure the basil; crimp edges of crust.
