The only thing missing is the crust!
Pizza toppings with pasta and sauce in a hot melty baked casserole!
Customize with what YOU like on a pizza.
Here I've used hamburger, and turkey pepperoni, with red onion and red pepper

I serve this with garlic bread and a green salad.

Pizza Hut used to have something like this on their lunch buffet...years and years ago!
