Easter and a New Recipe

Here are my Middles and Littles on Easter Sunday.  Aren't they cute?  My Big Guys are getting older and are beginning to spread their wings.  They have plans of their own, which don't always include our family.  Posing for cheesy family photos is not usually part of their plans.  After looking at this picture I realized I will be seeing more and more of these with 'just five kids'.  It looks like way too small of a group, doesn't it?

Anyway, enough of my pondering life.

I have a recipe I'd like to share with you.  It's called Crazy Crust Pizza.  I first had this when I was a little girl and we were visiting friends.  I remember my mom commenting on how quickly the meal came together.  I was reintroduced to this when friend of mine recently made it for us.  I have a new found love for this EASY recipe.  If our whole family is around, one pan is not enough.  But if it's just The King and I with The Middles and Littles, we have plenty.

Crazy Crust Pizza

1 cup flour
1 tsp salt (if you are using salty meat such as seasoned sausage, cut back on this)
1 tsp oregano
½ tsp black pepper
2 eggs
2/3 cup milk

Combine and mix well.  Pour batter into a greased 10 x 15 baking sheet (with sides).  Spread evenly.  Sprinkle your choice of toppings over batter:

I've been using ½ pound bulk Italian sausage (cooked and drained), one small onion, chopped; ¼ to ½ cup sliced black olives; and 4-5 medium sized mushrooms, sliced.  You could use pepperoni, Canadian bacon or ground beef.  Additional veggies would be good too.  Just don't overload the batter with toppings.  This is a soft thin crust and I've found that less is better.

Bake at 400° for 20 minutes.

Remove from oven, spread one cup of pizza sauce evenly over top and sprinkle with 2 cups of mozzarella cheese. Return to oven for about 5 more minutes, or cheese is melted and bubbly.  Cut and serve.

Quick, easy and delicious.  Enjoy!
