Becky Low shares this cheesy recipe.

Method:

Fried Cheese Pizza

Ingredients:

  • 2-6 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 ½ cups shredded Mozzarella cheese (see notes below)
  • 2-4 tablespoons pizza or marinara sauce
  • Italian seasoning, garlic powder, to taste
  • Toppings of choice (see suggestions below)
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Red pepper flakes, optional
  • Grated Parmesan cheese

Method:

Heat non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Sprinkle 1-2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese over 10-inch circle. Evenly sprinkle Mozzarella cheese in the circle. Allow cheese to partially melt, spoon on pizza sauce and sprinkle to taste with Italian seasoning and garlic powder. Add toppings of choice, use suggestions below or others of your choice (NOTE: add fresh sliced tomatoes after removing pizza from the pan).

Cook until sizzling and edges are browned; pizza is done when a spatula may easily slip underneath the pizza. Slide pizza onto cutting board, top with fresh tomato slices, snipped fresh basil leaves, optional red pepper flakes and grated Parmesan cheese to taste. Cool 5 minutes, slice and enjoy! (Pizza will continue to firm as it cools, but this is a soft pizza)
