Pop Up Pizza Pie

 This recipe is one of my kid’s favorite. My son loves pizza and he would eat it every night if I would let him. He thinks this recipe is a good substitute for the real thing. I have not made this in awhile, so I need to put it on the meal plan again soon.

I have made this recipe many times. It is really easy to put together. Serve it with a salad or vegetables and you have a great meal. This is a fast and frugal recipe.

This recipe is adapted from the Best Of Country Cooking cookbook published by Reiman Publications.

    Swwwweeeetttt!! Another recipe that uses ground beef!! This recipe would work well with leftover sauce from “spaghetti night” at my house too!

    Thanks for sharing! 🙂 Going to bookmark it to try sometime soon! 🙂

  3. I’ve been known to dice up a little pepperoni and add it when we make this at our house.
    Yummy!!! And so easy to make.

  4. I am not sure what I did wrong but there was nothing popping up in my pizza. Should there have been some baking powder in the dough? The only thing I changed was used Egg Beaters instead of eggs.

  5. I made this tonight, too, for lunch tomorrow. I had a small bite- yum!!

    I just found this website and this was the first recipe I tried. We loved it. I added black olives, mushrooms, and pepperoni! Can’t wait to try more great, easy recipes!!

  7. I made this for lunch today since we were having company. It was a hit! It is definitely a keeper and was so easy to throw together. Thanks for all the great recipes you share, Lynn!

    I made this for dinner last night. It was great. Have you ever frozen it?

    • I have frozen the meat part and made the batter part right before baking and it works great. I have never frozen the whole thing though. If you try it, I would love to know how it works for you.

  9. Lynn, I made this last night with ground turkey, and it was a huge hit! This is definitely going to be made again. Thank you!

  10. I’ve been making this for years! My friend found it for me in an old cookbook when we did Atkins years about 14 years ago and I still make it. I like it with country sausage and lots of bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms in the base. My dh and my dad like it when I use BBQ beef as the base. I decreased the flour to 2T and it still makes a nice topping without the extra carbs.

  11. I am making this tonight for my family. I have a question. Do I need to use self rising flour or all purpose? Thanks

  12. This recipe is a keeper, thank you!

  13. Have you tried this with GF flour and some xanthan gum? How does it turn out?
