Supreme Pizza Bake
Who doesn’t love pizza? It’s probably one of my favorite “cheat” foods; so cheesy, rich, and delicious… Every bite just hits the spot! 🙂
That said, I crave pizza pretty often – as I’m sure a lot of you do – so why not have a meal you can make weekly that curbs that craving (or until you treat yourself to the real thing)?
This supreme pizza bake has all the flavors you love from takeout pizza: cheese (of course), two different kinds of meat that will keep you full and satisfied, fresh veggies, the traditional red sauce and even some buttery crust to tie it all together!
The great thing about this recipe (what am I saying, there are so many great things about this!) is that you get the taste of pizza that you’re craving, but for a fraction of the calories and lots of protein so you’ll fill up faster than you would with a traditional pizza! (Let’s be honest: I know I can put a decent dent in a pizza! Haha.)
If you aren’t one for veggies just make this a meat lovers… you really can make this what ever you want it to be! It’s an easy weeknight meal you can throw together and feel like it’s a cheat night.
TIP: If you’re looking to save on some time, prep the turkey portion the day/night before. Then all you have to do is layer the casserole the next day and bake! Makes for great leftovers too 🙂
