“Easy Pizza Four Ways” was what I used to make for my family back when I was extremely busy with a restaurant and a photography studio and I didn’t have the time to make complicated meals for the family. For some reason, only known to my kids, they decided last night we needed to have it again. I wasn’t going to share this recipe because I thought it was to simple but my daughter reminded me that I am not the only mom that has been too busy to think straight and that at times something easy, simplistic, and fun can do wonders for family night. So, Raychel and I spent a little time in the kitchen making pizza in the 4 different ways I use to make it when I was too tired to cook.
The first way is with flattened biscuits, the second with flour tortillas, the third with french bread, and the fourth is a great low carb way using eggplant.
Easy Pizza (4 Ways)
Yield = as many as you want
- Choose one – Canned Biscuits, Flour Tortillas, French Bread, Eggplant
- Hamburger Meat
- Pizza Sauce (My kids really like Prego Sauce)
- Mozzarella Cheese
- Roma Tomato
- Olive Oil
- Italian Seasoning
If you are using biscuits, you will need to flatten them on a baking sheet and bake them in a 350-degree oven for 15 minutes. For flour tortillas, I bake them for 10 minutes in a 350-degree oven. For the french bread, I slice it thin and drizzle a little olive oil and sprinkle a little Italian seasoning on before baking them in a 350-degree oven for 10 minutes. The eggplant, I slice, dip in water and then roll in cornmeal and Italian seasoning. I pan-fry them in a little bit of olive oil until they are browned.
Once the “base” of your mini pizzas are ready, you top them with browned hamburger meat, a tablespoon of pizza sauce, either a slice or some shredded mozzarella cheese. You may use any toppings you would like, but these are my family favorites. I add the Roma tomato to the eggplant pizza for a little adulting.
Place the mini pizzas on a baking sheet and broil on low until the cheese is melted and the edges of the base are crisp. Serve with a salad and enjoy some family time. Dinner doesn’t have to be complicated when life becomes that way. For another easy and fast dinner recipe try my Easy Chicken and Shrimp Pasta recipe!
