Thank goodness for pre-made biscuits. I know in my previous post I said that I would cook more but for those times when the cooking bug isn’t biting I have easy go-to recipes like this. In honor of Throwback Thursday, I wanted to put this up. My cousin, Segun and I were too lazy to cook something up so we whipped something up instead.
Pizza Mizza Pizza Ritza
1 can of pillsbury rolls
1 small packet of tillamook shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 small packet of tillamook shredded mozzarella cheese
1 small onion
1tbsp of olive oil
1 tsp of red pepper
1 jar on pasta sauce*
1 can of tomato paste*
1 lb of Mince meat
Turkey sandwich slices
* I don’t make pizza on the regular so it’s not like I have pizza sauce at the ready all the time
Chop the onion into tiny pieces and set them aside.
Put your cooking pan on medium-high. After a few minutes, add the olive oil and then the chopped onions. Allow those to heat up for a bit before you place the mince meat in. Leave it to cook all the way through occasionally stirring it so it doesn’t burn or stick.
Set the oven to 350º f / 175º c
Pop the can of rolls (I love doing that!) and lay them out on a baking pan. You can cover it with foil if you want an easier clean-up like we did here. Just knead the dough so it flattens out into round circles.
For every cup of pasta sauce add 1 table spoon of tomato paste. The paste will act as a thickener so the pizza sauce is not too watery. Mix that together (My ingredients don’t call for it but you can add a few pinches of black pepper because the paste is basically condensed tomato and it might be a bit much taste-wise).
Take the turkey slices and just shred them into tiny pieces them using your hands. Set that aside.
Use a spoon to scoop the newly-made pizza sauce and then use the back to spread it over the dough. Take the shredded cheese and layer it on top. Following that, layer your toppings on. Throw some more cheese on. The cheese will melt over everything and will keep your meats from tumbling off after you take them out of the oven.
Bake for 15 - 20 minutes and voila!
