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. 😀

Crust
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

Directions:

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.

Finished and partially eaten! Looks odd because of the yellow light above the stove -- also, it's in a glass pan sitting on the burner, so it may look like it's just sitting directly on the burner. NO BURNERS OR PIZZA THINGS WERE HARMED DURING THE PRODUCTION OF THIS BLOG.

I am a pretty bubbly person. A dancer, a prancer, and sometimes a vixen. Romantic and striving for grace, but unfortunately the emphasis is on "antic"; occasionally lunatic, trying to be demure. Probably failing.
