Upside-Down Deep Dish Pizza
This looked and sounded very strange to me when I first found the recipe but I figured who doesn't love pizza? I'm glad I decided to try it out because it was super yummy! It still looks strange to me but we will be making this delicious yet strange dish again!
The ground beef mixture can be cooked ahead of time and refrigerated in the baking dish until assembly time. Just heat it in the microwave until hot before topping and baking.
