Upside-Down Pizza (Casserole)

Shelley Simpson


Found this recipe torn from a magazine hidden in mom's recipe box and baked it up this evening. It got scarfed down with everyone's ideas on the endless favorite toppings that we can add to it the next time! So don't be afraid to add your favorite Pizza toppings. Would be excellent with mushrooms, pepperoni, olives or bacon. You name your favorite toppings and it can surely be added!
