No Dough….no problem

I’ve been intrigued of late by some Facebook posts, Pins, and recipe posts talking about a dough free pizza. Pizza without crust? Whatsa matter for you? Believe it or not…. this stuff is good. And for those who need to be gluten free or carb free…it is a BONANZA! I decided on a rainy day to make a big batch of Beef Barley and Mushroom soup. But I wanted a side dish to make the meal a little more hearty. So… why not try the dough free pizza?

Unfortunately, while I was cleaning my oven, the glass door cracked and needless to say I had no oven to bake the pizza in. I started to think…hmmm…could I make a pan pizza on the stovetop? Or in my trusty electric frying pan? Yes….and yes….both will work for this recipe. The latter is better if you prefer a little lighter “crust. In other words, it is much easier to control the temperature on an electric fryer than on an electric stovetop!
And, disclaimer for both…if you detest the taste of slightly burnt cheese….do not make this recipe! The cheese does get dark on the bottom because the heat comes only from that direction….so accept that and move on to the delicious, pizza wonderful taste of this great recipe.

The “Crust”
3-4 cups mozzarella (shredded)
3-4 eggs (beaten)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1tsp basil or oregano
Mix together and spread into a cast iron skillet or 12-15 electric skillet.
Cook at 450 degrees 10-15 minutes or until top is set and bottom is medium golden brown. Cover after 5 minutes. (if you do this in a cast iron skillet, spray with Pam and preheat on medium for 5 minutes) Add toppings, re-cover and finish cooking with stovetop/temp. on off. The residual heat will melt the cheese and warm the toppings.

The Toppings
Use your imagination!
1/2 -3/4 cup pizza sauce or any good past sauce
1cup mozzarella (shredded)
1/4 cup asiago (shredded)
roasted red peppers, onions, ham, olives…etc.
