Crustless Pizza

Total Time:
53 min
Prep:
20 min
Cook:
33 min

Yield:
2 to 4 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • Salt
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • Butter, for pie dish
  • 1 cup grated Cheddar
  • 2 ounces small chorizo or pepperoni slices, about 3/4-inch diameter, optional
  • Special equipment: 1 round ovenproof pie dish, 8 or 9 inches in diameter
Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. In a small bowl, beat the egg with the flour, salt, to taste, and milk to make a smooth batter.

Butter a round ovenproof pie dish, then stir half the grated cheese into the batter, before pouring it into the dish.

Bake for 30 minutes. Take the dish out of the oven, sprinkle with the remaining cheese, and add the chorizo or pepperoni, if using, - or anything else - now, too. Return the dish to the oven and cook for another 2 or 3 minutes to make sure it's heated through.

Once the cheese on top is melted and looks burnished fold on the crustless pizza, take it out of the oven and serve, cut into slices. A green or tomato salad on the side would not be a bad idea...

Leftover Note:

Leftovers can be reheated the next day in a hot oven for 8 to10 minutes, but sadly they won't be as nice as the first time around.

Sorry, but I fail to see how the use of flour in this recipe makes it crustless. This recipe should be renamed to...just a regular pizza. item not reviewed by moderator and published
easy and delicious item not reviewed by moderator and published
Prefer crispy crust, but other than that... this turned out great! Kinda like a "Dutch Apple Pancake... but in a savory pizza form. Made it fancier and added some sauteed mushrooms, peppers, onions, and quartered salami pieces. Yum-o! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really good and easy. I made this with a gluten free flour blend, and it turned out so tasty. It really does taste like the middle of a grilled cheese sandwich. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So easy, it's ridiculous! I've been wanting someing like this for so long. This is very yummy. The crust reminds me of a quiche. I will be using this recipe with all kkinds of toppings, but...hopefully it can take a few cooked vegetables thrown into the batter too, because I think that would make a great light lunch. Wow! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a quick, easy and comforting standby. Extra yum-o if you add chorizo, and I expect pepperoni would be awesome too. You should probably eat it right away, while it's hot. If you're expecting it to taste exactly like a pizza, it doesn't - it tastes like the innards of a grilled cheese, which is pretty good in my book! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My crust came out doughy, like a panake. Its not really that quick with a 30 initial bake time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great as either a snack or as a side or even as a main dish. My family loved it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
It great for a quick & speedy after-school snack or a dinner for one. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very speedy & satisfying. For someone who is looking for an exact measurement for the salt, I use 1/2teas. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I actually really enjoyed this. The dough was chewy and very tasty. Reminded me of the Brazilian "pao de queijo". I used parmesan cheese in the dough instead of cheddar. This will be made again, and again :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made your crustless pizza this morning. Came out great and tastes great!! Thank so much. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious and light. Great for a meal or snack. We love onions and added them to the mix. Also added a little pizza sauce at the end. Works great with pepperoni or sausage. item not reviewed by moderator and published
