We are having one of our favorite properly combined meals tonight, pizza with a garlic cheese crust! I have to say this is also a wonderful side dish as a garlic "bread",just make the crust without adding toppings. Then cool slightly and slice into squares. It is so YUMMY!
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, 1 ounce
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
whatever pizza toppings you want
Beat the cream cheese and eggs with a whisk until smooth. Add the cream, parmesan and seasonings. Grease a 9x13 pan very well then spread the mozzarella evenly in pan. Pour the egg mixture over the cheese. Spread slightly with a spatula. Bake at 350º for 20 minutes to set. Take out of oven, let set for 5 minutes. Then top with pizza sauce, shredded cheese and your pizza toppings and bake for another 5-10 minutes. Cook until cheese is melted.
If you are going to be using pepperoni, I suggest cooking it in a skillet before putting it on your pizza - it really brings out the flavor. This is also helpful for onions and peppers.
So what is for dinner at your house?
*For anyone that might have read this immediately after I initially posted, I did change the baking directions just a little.
