MANWICH™ PIZZA - Easy Recipe


I love nothing better than an easy recipe with few ingredients. A friend suggested this to me, and gave me a verbal recipe. I tried it and my husband and I like it, so we make it occasionally. I never use a recipe, I just throw it together with what I have available.

Ingredients:
amounts are approximate: use more or less as you prefer

•1 pre-made pizza crust or focaccia
•1.25 lb. ground turkey (regular or all breast meat which has less fat) or 1 lb. ground beef or 1 lb. cubed chicken breast
•1 can of Manwich™ sauce
•Shredded mozzarella or provolone or sliced provolone to cover pizza
•Optional: sauteed onions or peppers, sauteed or drained canned mushrooms, cooked broccoli, sliced tomatoes, or other traditional pizza toppings. Be creative.

Preparation:

•Cook the meat.
•Add enough Manwich™ sauce to cover the meat, but not enough to make it soupy ---usually about 3/4 of a can. Heat until hot.
•Spread the cooked meat mixture on your pizza crust.
•Place other toppings either on top of the meat mixture or on top of the cheese, whichever you prefer.
•Cover with cheese.

Bake according to the pizza crust's instructions.
If there are no instructions heat long enough for the crust to brown or if the focaccia is already baked, make sure the toppings (except the cheese) are hot, then heat the assembled pizza in a hot oven (450-475 degrees) just long enough for the cheese to melt.

Enjoy!

wow, never thought about using manwich sauce. But I do make little pizzas with ground turkey and veggies on pita bread. It crisps up really well.

Thanks for sharing this recipe it's definitely a really good reward for my brother who got his Food Safety Course last week. But still work on the dough first. I'm not really the cook-type but I'd like to do something special for him.
