Iron Skillet Upside Down Pizza

Aug
1

A meal in a skillet–and it’s upside down, just for fun! See how it puffs up when it bakes? Like you did some magic on it. Plus, you get to call it “pizza” and you know how everybody likes that word. And, okay, you don’t have to cook it in an iron skillet, but don’t you want to? It makes me feel like a pioneer and I love feeling like a pioneer. You know, in between checking my email and watching TV. (I have chickens!) I always wanted to be Laura on Little House on the Prairie, have I mentioned that? No? Maybe we shouldn’t go there with this post, or go into my whole David Cassidy obsession. And then there was my Robert Conrad thing… Where was I? Iron Skillet Upside Down Pizza!!!


(Do you feel like you were just inside my head? And wasn’t it scary there?)

How to make Iron Skillet Upside Down Pizza:

1/2 pound ground sausage
1/2 pound ground beef
1/3 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
approximately 2 ounces sliced pepperoni
1 1/2 cups Basic Italian-Style Tomato Sauce or pizza sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup grated Parmesan





Cook ground sausage and beef in a 10-inch skillet. Drain grease. Add onion, garlic, salt, and Italian seasoning and mix in skillet. Spread pepperoni over meat and onion mixture. Pour on the sauce and top with cheese. In a bowl, combine eggs, milk, salt, and flour. Mix well and spoon over sauce and cheese. (That isn’t a mistake, by the way–no baking powder is required!)





Sprinkle on the Parmesan (and I like to add some extra Italian seasoning here for decoration). Bake in a 400-degree oven for about 20 minutes, till the pizza crust top is golden and puffy! Yum!

You can change this up to whatever suits your taste for your favorite kind of pizza. Add hot peppers or other vegetables. Make it with chicken and bacon. Use different cheeses. The world is your pizza.

And now it’s upside down!

    I found this site on Charleston Daily Mail’s website and Suzanne, my dear.. I am IN LOVE! (not with you, of course, just the site) It reminds me sooo much of going out to my aunt’s farm. I haven’t been there in ages. (she has a pretty good bit of land just outside spencer) But the photography is amazing, and considering I’ve only been reading this blog for a day and I’m like, already addicted.. pat yourself on the back, sista… job well done!

    I forgot to mention, about the Robert Conrad thing, I know what you mean..I’m widowed now but my husband of 39 years bore a striking resemblance to Robert Conrad..or maybe Robert Conrad bore a resemblance to my husband since I think my husband might have been a year or two older..anyway they BOTH WERE DIVINE!!

    I too have been cooking in a cast iron skillet for almost 40 years – nothing better and they say you get a little iron fromit which is a plus (as opposed to what you may be getting from teflon). The pizza looks great. It’s been years since I’ve made my own – it’s so easy to do take out.

    Suzanne,

    DH made this last night. We so tasty and we really enjoyed it. It’s a keeper. We changed up the recipe and used italian sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, yellow and red peppers. DH wants to call it “Pizza potpie” but I am sticking with Upside Down Pizza.

    Did you make up this recipe?
    Thanks, Mary

    Hi, Mary! No, I got this idea from a friend who used to make it a lot and I don’t know where she got it.

    My hubby is a pizza fanatic. I have to try this some day soon!!!

    I might make this today in my iron skillet. Do you serve it upside down or turn it over on a plate like upside down cake? Does the bread part have the same texture as pizza crust?

    I had a crush on Bobby Sherman, Davie from the Monkeeys, and David Cassidy. I liked Robert Conrad too. I had giant pictures of them on my walls.

    I served it upside down, right out of the pan. The bread is similar to pizza crust.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
