Upside-down Pizza

This recipe uses sausage and mushrooms, but I don't see any reason why you couldn't use other toppings. I used ground beef and mushrooms, and it worked fine.

2 teaspoons olive oil
1 pound sweet or hot turkey sausage, casing removed
8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
1 cup pasta sauce
1 cup pizza sauce
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 Parmesan, grated

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. Add mushrooms and cook 2 minutes, until soft. Add pasta sauce, pizza sauce. 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 Parmesan.

Bake 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
