A fun twist on a family night favorite. Bake your pizza and then set up a topping buffet so everyone can have it like they want it.
- 1¼ c. cornmeal
- 1¼ c. unbleached flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1½ tsp. salt
- 2/3 c. milk
- 1/3 c. melted butter
- ½ lb. hamburger
- ½ lb. pork sausage
- 1 (6 oz.) can tomato paste
- 1 (15 oz.) can diced tomatoes, undrained
- 1 envelope taco seasoning mix (or make your own)
- ¾ c. water
- 2 c. shredded cheese (we like colby/monterey jack)
- green onion
- additional cheese
Combine corn meal, flour, baking powder, and salt. Add milk and melted butter; mix well. Press onto the bottom and sides of a greased, 12 to 14 inch pizza pan. I find a rolling pin helpful to get it spread out. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned.
Brown hamburger and sausage together. Drain. Stir in tomato paste, tomatoes, taco seasoning, and water. Bring to a boil. Simmer, uncovered, for 5-10 minutes.
Spread meat mixture over crust. Top with cheese. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes, or until cheese melts.
Place toppings in individual bowls. Slice pizza. Add preferred toppings individually.
