Thanks Dina,

 

Check out history in this Pizza/Pasta section and you will see this recipe. I think it probably has a record of one of the hotest/most used recipe by all of us - very popular recipe for BOOTCAMPERS! It is excellent, although I have transcended it to Pizza Nervana with grilled home made ones. Pizza is so easy to make, and such a struggle to stay away from for me!

 

When you make this, add some mushrooms, a ton of parsley, some minced garlic, a little Essence of Emeril, and really make it come alive!

 

Good luck Pizza Face, :rolleyes: this is really a good recipe that the whole family will enjoy.

 

p.s. Use Turkey meat and you really can cut down the points. If you use beef, you can brown your meat in a plastic collander in the Microwave and really get more of the fat out. I do the turkey meat in a skillet because I like to add lots of stuff to enhance flavor!

We could learn a lot from crayons: some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names, and all are different colors....but they all exist very nicely in the same box.

Thanks for your note, Bill. You must have posted it right after I posted the recipe.

 

Anyway, thank you for bringing a smile to this Washingtonian's (D.C.) face.

 

Have a good week.

We have been making this recipe since it was posted a while back and it is fantastic. Unfortunately my oven is broken, but as soon as I get a new element for it I am going to make it again, only this time I am going to use the Whole Wheat Pizza crust I also found on this website. We love whole wheat at our house. It ought to be good!! :D

Hi Softballmom,

 

Sorry for the delay in response. I don't get to visit the web site very often.

 

The recipe makes 6 servings.

 

Notice at the beginning of the recipe where it says "Serving Size: 6" ...

 

Hope you enjoy the recipe!

 

Dina
