This is in the oven right now, along with a loaf of brioche for tomorrow:
I’ve simply followed the directions as listed in the recipe exactly (for once), and will top with olive oil, cheese, and crumbled sausage… since I can’t have tomato sauce, I’ll have to be a little inventive. I probably don’t even need the olive oil, come to think about it. Hmm. lol
I’ll let you know how it comes out. UPDATE: Just took it out from the initial bake, and it’s golden-brown and gorgeous. Smells great! Now letting it cool 10 minutes before topping. OTHER UPDATE: I just properly read the pan size, and it’s supposed to be 9X13. Oops. :} ANOTHER OTHER UPDATE: Have just eaten two pieces, and it’s very good. It’s not really a crust substitute as much as it is a casserole; but it’s yummy. 😀
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 Preheat oven to 350.
2 Lightly spay a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray. With a handheld mixer, mix cream cheese, eggs, pepper, garlic powder and parmesan cheese until combined. Spread into baking dish. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow crust to cool for 10 minutes.
3 Spread pizza sauce on crust. Top with cheese and toppings. Sprinkle pizza with garlic powder. Bake 8-10 minutes, until cheese is melted.
