Sandie’s Upside-down Pizza


Whoa!  That is a whole lotta pizza goodness. My mother-in-law was a great cook. Her meals were simple,  but very tasty. This recipe is so easy and so good.  The best part… it isn’t full of preservatives and additives.


  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 lb sweet Italian turkey sausage,  casings removed
  • 1 onion,  chopped
  • 1 red pepper,  chopped
  • 8 oz  mushrooms,  sliced
  • 1 cup pasta sauce
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup to 1 cup sliced black olives, as preferred
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp  salt
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese,  grated


  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Heat 2 tsp olive oil over medium heat.  Add sausage and cook until browned and cooked through, breaking up meat as it cooks with a wooden spoon. Drain fat,  if needed.
  3. Add onion, pepper,  and mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes,  until soft.
  4. Add pasta sauce, pizza sauce, and olives and bring to a simmer.
  5. Remove from heat and transfer sauce to the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish. Top with mozzarella cheese.
  6. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and 1 Tbsp olive oil until blended. Whisk in flour and salt until well blended.
  7. Pou flour mixture over sauce in pan. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  8. Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
  9. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
