All Turned Around

Tonight was my evening off from the gym, so I had time to try out a new meal. I saw this recipe on Jennyfer's blog and knew that it was something Joe and I would enjoy. Jennyfer did a bbq chicken version, but I chose to stick with the typical pizza elements for now. This was delicious! Joe and I both very impressed with this meal. It was just like eating an upside down slice of pizza. Yum! Below is my modification of the recipe:

Upside Down Pizza

2 teaspoons olive oil
4 links pound sweet turkey sausage, casing removed
1 cup onion, sliced
8 ounces baby bella mushrooms
half a package turkey pepperoni
2 cups pizza sauce
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 tbsp garlic powder
16 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup grated parmesan, romano and asiago mix

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add sausage and cook for 3 minutes, or until browned and cooked through, breaking up the meat as it cooks with a wooden spoon. Season sausage with red pepper flakes and add onion, mushrooms and pepperoni. Cook 2 minutes, until mushrooms are soft. Add pasta sauce and garlic powder, bring to a simmer, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer sauce to the bottom of a 13 by 9-inch baking dish. Top with mozzarella cheese. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and oil until blended. Whisk in flour and salt until well blended. Pour mixture over sauce in pan. Sprinkle with cheese mix. Bake 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
