Mock Pizza

Almost Pizza

Well, calling this a pizza is a bit of a stretch – think of it more as a pizza flavored Yorkshire Pudding. Nigella calls it Crustless Pizza, but this could possibly be misleading to pizza purists.

But the point is that it’s really yummy and it WILL make you happy.  It’s great as a snack, or with a salad for lunch. It’s a bit naughty and makes you feel like a kid, or I suppose if you’re not in the refuse-to-be-a-grown-up camp, this would be a great meal FOR the kids…

It’s easy and quick and cheaper than ordering real pizza, and you can change up the flavorings any way you please.

Make. Happy.



1 egg

2/3 cup flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

pinch of dried oregano

1 cup whole milk

1 cup grated cheese

2 oz pepperoni or turkey pepperoni slices


Preheat oven to 400. Grease a pie dish with butter, oil or cooking spray.

Whisk together the egg, flour, salt, spices, milk and half of the grated cheese. Pour into the pie dish and bake for 25 minutes.

Remove the pie dish from the oven and arrange the pepperoni slices over the crust. Sprinkle over the remaining cheese.

Place the dish back in the oven and bake for 5 more minutes.

Allow the pizza to cool slightly before removing from dish and slicing.

Serves 1 or 2 very happy kids or kids-at-heart.
