Upside-Down Pizza and a Giveaway!

Upside-Down Pizza and a Giveaway!

An easy and unique way to make a delicious pizza in less than 45 minutes! No yeast dough to make! Just a quick and easy batter that is poured over the sauteed pizza toppings and then baked in the oven until golden brown and bubbly! Everything is sautéed and then baked in one pan!


Upside-Down Pizza and a Giveaway!
Upside-Down Pizza

2 Tbls. olive oil
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 large onion, diced
4 large cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. dried oregano
1 lb. 93% lean ground beef
2 Tbls. grated romano cheese
1 cup of homemade or jarred tomato sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Heat a 10-12" diameter, oven safe saute pan, on the stovetop to medium with olive oil.
When oil is hot, sauté the veggies with the seasonings until tender.
Then add in the 93% lean ground beef and cook and stir until well browned, breaking up the meat as you brown it.
Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes.
Then stir in 2 Tbls. grated romano cheese, tomato sauce and shredded mozzarella.
Evenly spread out the mixture to cover the entire bottom of the pan.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. And prepare the pizza batter below.

 PIZZA BATTER
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 tsp. olive oil

Whisk the pizza batter ingredients together in a bowl until well combined.
Pour slowly and evenly over the cooked pan ingredients, making sure to thinly cover it completely. Bake uncovered for 25 minutes. Sprinkle more grated romano cheese thinly over the cooked pizza batter and bake for another 5 minutes to lightly brown the cheese.
Remove from oven and allow pizza to cool and
 set for about 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
Serves 4 people


That large beautiful pan, used to make my Upside-Down Pizza, was manufactured by a

company named Gastrolux. They are well known in Denmark as the makers of high quality non stick cookware. Now they are making their mark in the US.


Because I'm a very active food blogger they approached me to ask if I would be willing to test their product. But that wasn't good enough for me...nooooo! I told the Gastrolux company that if I loved their cookware  enough to blog about it that I would like for them to offer a free pan to one of my readers! They were so sure of their product that they agreed! And now I can see why because their cookware is extremely well made and designed!

Gastrolux generously sent me their 12" diameter, two-handled, sauté pan! I decided to create this recipe using the pan so that I could see how well it performed on the stove top as well as in the oven! While sauteing the vegetables I noticed how evenly heated the large pan was, even though it overlapped the burner on my glass top range. The pan sizzled evenly from edge to edge! And the pan even preformed beautifully in the oven! All the edges of the pizza were evenly browned! The pan and lid can bake at temperatures up to 500 degrees F. Their single handled pans have detachable handles! A very cool feature for easy storage! And I love that the Gastrolux non stick coating is PFOA and PFOS free which means it doesn't contain any carcinogenic materials, as many other non stick cookware does.

 Now one lucky reader will get to have their own Gastrolux pan! All we need to do is get the word out by getting their new Facebook page at least 300 'Likes'! And leave a comment on their wall about my giveaway while you're there!  I'd also like you to follow them on Pinterest if you have a Pinterest account! That's it! Simple and easy! Then comeback here and leave a comment telling me which one of their pans you would like! That's right...Gastrolux is nice enough to offer one winner the pan of their choice!!! Very cool!!!

Now for the rules and links!
