Upside Down Pizza Casserole

1 pound Lean Ground Beef

1 Teaspoon Dry Basil Leaves

1/2  Teaspoon Dry Oregano leaves

1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

1- 24oz. Jar of your Favorite Gluten Free Pizza Sauce ( I used Rinaldi)

1- 6oz. wedge of Parmesan Cheese Freshly grated (reserve ¼ Cup for Crust)

Crust:

2/3 Cup Gluten Free Bisquick Baking Mix

2 Teaspoons White Granulated Sugar

1/3 Cup Buttermilk

1 Large Egg Beaten

1/4 Cup grated Parmesan Cheese

In medium bowl add all ingredients for crust,( except cheese) and whisk together until smooth. Fold in Cheese and let set until you are ready to spread over beef mixture.

Preheat oven to 400*

In 10 inch cast iron skillet, brown ground beef adding spices just before beef is fully cooked. ( it should only take about 10 minutes to brown beef on medium high heat). Remove from heat and add pizza sauce, spreading over meat. Do not stir into beef. Then sprinkle grated cheese over sauce, then top all of this with crust batter, spreading to outer edges. Place skillet in oven and bake for 20 -25 minutes or until crust is baked through and browned on top. Remove from oven and serve warm! Enjoy!

Gluten Free Veggie Pizza

Pizza Crust:

2 Cups Gluten Free Bisquick Mix

2 Eggs

2/3 Cup Milk

2/3 Cup GF Oil

Preheat oven to 325*F.

In medium size mixing bowl, whisk eggs and milk, add oil, and fold in Bisquick mix. Mix well and set dough in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. The Bisquick is a little gritty, so I like to let it set to absorb the liquids as long as possible. When ready to bake, grease a 12 inch pizza stone or nonstick round baking pan. Pour dough onto pan and spread dough with your hands until completely covering pan and forming a raised crust around the edges. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until crust is lightly browned. Let crust cool and cover with filling below.

Filling:

2 – 8oz. packages additive free cream cheese ( I use Philadelphia)

1 Heaping Tablespoon of Gluten Free Mayonnaise ( I use Hellmann’s)

1 Heaping Tablespoon Gluten Free Dry Ranch Mix( see recipe in Vegetables and Dressings)

1 Large head of Broccoli chopped (just florets do not use large stalks)

1 Sweet Red Bell Pepper, washed, seeded and cubed into small pieces

1 Sweet Orange or yellow Bell Pepper, washed, seeded and cubed also

1 medium tomato cubed or about 1 ½ cups of cherry tomatoes sliced in half

In food processor blend cream cheese, mayonnaise, and dry ranch dressing mix, until smooth and creamy. Spread cheese mixture onto cooled crust, then cover with chopped vegetables. Slice into small pizza slices and serve. ( Note: add any vegetables you like, or you can even add chopped avocado, or if you want to turn this into a meat pizza, then add some chopped GF ham. )

Pizza Dough

2  1/4 Cups of a good Gluten Free Flour (I use Better Batter or Tom Sawyer/Betty Crocker GF Flour Mix)

¼  Teaspoon Salt

¼ Teaspoon Baking Soda

1 Teaspoon Gluten Free Baking Powder

¼ Cup White Granulated Sugar

1 ½ Teaspoons Dry Active Yeast

1/2 Cup Pure Butter Milk

2/3  Cup Pure Egg Whites

1/8 Cup Oil

In mixing bowl or food processor, whisk all dry ingredients together, including yeast. Then add all liquid ingredients. Mix or blend until dough is smooth and there are no more lumps. Place dough in bag or bowl with a sealable lid and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. You can leave dough in refrigerator overnight. When you are ready to bake remove from refrigerator and dust with GF flour.  Place on greased pizza pan,( or parchment paper for personal pan size in a small cast iron skillet) and roll out to desired thickness. This should make 1 large thin crust pizza, or 2 small personal pan pizzas.. (Or several pizza pockets.) Cover dough with desired toppings.  and bake at 375* for 25 – 30 minutes, or until crust is browned to desired crispness.

For these two pizzas use cooked and drained GF sausage. GF pizza sauce and freshly grated GF mozzarella and pepper cheese. The other is GF ham or Canadian bacon, GF pizza sauce and mozzarella cheese. I layer cheese, meat, and sauce, then repeat again for 2 layers and bake. You can add Gf parmesan after you remove from oven. Enjoy!
