Upside-Down Pizza

Upside-Down Pizza

It’s Thursday!! Anyone want a throwback?

This recipe was another favorite of mine as a kid and just really fully incorporates two of the things that kids seem to love the MOST.

First and foremost, pizza!!

And secondly, stuff being upside-down.

Just look at that mouthwatery golden crust! It’s actually just a can of croissant dough spread over the top of meat, sauce and cheese, then baked to golden-brown perfection. So tasty.

This is a really simple recipe that my mom used to make all the time when I was younger. Another that I would request often!

It’s a child’s dream because there are no veggies in there! We usually eat our upside down pizza with a salad on the side, or you could do steamed broccoli, squash, carrots or whatever is your favorite to add some veggie love.

But make sure you try this at least once. Especially you, with the picky eater(s)! This is for you.

Recipe Notes

*I personally try not to eat a whole lot of beef if I can help it, so I frequently substitute ground turkey in the place of ground beef in my recipes. It tastes just as good either way, I think!

*To lighten this up as much as can be, you can use reduced fat sour cream (or sub Greek yogurt), 2% skim-milk Mozz, and you can even add spinach to add a vegetable.

    Yep-an oldie but goody! Sometimes I grated carrot into it but always have a nice salad with it:)
