Hey yall!! Summer is coming to end and that means school is starting up which means we all need a little help in the kitchen getting dinner ready, am I right?
I love getting the whole family in the kitchen to help me whip up some family favorites for dinner. It creates memories, we get to spend quality time together, talk, learn and laugh, oh and cook! Kids can be a great help in the kitchen and the sense of accomplishment they get when they sit down to eat a meal they helped prepare is awesome! Dean loves to help me in the kitchen and his favorite thing to make is pizza (like every little boy huh? lol) However, this mama was getting a little tired of the same old pepperoni and wanted to get a little creative with the pizza. We loaded up and went to Walmart for our weekly grocery shopping and I kept an eye out for anything that screamed “put me on a pizza”. I grabbed our favorite Heinz Classico Traditional Sauce and then I spotted the ricotta. Mmmm ricotta…… mmm lasagna….. mmmmm LASAGNA PIZZA!!!! Genius!! So straight home we went to make this sure to be incredible dinner. I browned up some sausage and boiled some noodles and set out everything for assembly making it easier for Dean to help me make the pizza. You just start with a store bought crust (you can make your own) brush the crust with a little butter and sprinkle some garlic salt over it, then spread a layer of ricotta.
Layer on some sauce.
Then you top with lots of melty mozzarella.
Then top with browned sausage.
Mix the noodles with a tiny bit of sauce and sprinkle them all over the pizza. A dusting of Parmesan cheese and this baby is ready for the oven!
In no time you have a cheesy, flavorful Lasagna Pizza sure to be a hit with everyone!!
