Inside Out Pizza
It was Friday. It was April 1. We made this:
Here you can see my daughter giving it a good long stare. She is studying to see if we really are going to eat cake for dinner.
This recipe that was inspired here, was so simple to make and a lot of fun. The girls were fooled for a short amount of time, but enjoyed the effort of us parents being silly.
Inside Outside Pizza Cake
Bundt Cake Pan, well-greased
Pizza Dough (we used a pre-made White Crust from Wegman’s to look more like cake, but any crust recipe would work)
Pizza Sauce (tomato, pesto, or you could try ricotta)
Turkey Pepperoni or other pizza toppings of your choice, just make sure all toppings are pre-cooked.
1/2 c Mozzarella grated and 8 slices
Allow the dough to come to room temperature. Split the dough in half and line the bundt cake pan with the dough making sure there are no holes. Layer with sauce, cheese and pizza toppings.
Roll out remaining dough into a doughnut shape.
Place on top of pizza toppings and seal really well. You do not want anything to leak out or it will not look like a cake.
Bake in a preheated oven (375 degrees F) for 40 minutes. Flip cake out and place cheese slices on top and return to oven for 5 minutes. Watch carefully, you want the cheese to just melt and ooze to look like frosting instead of getting all brown and toasty (a travesty: NO TOASTY CHEESE).
Once the cheese has melted, serve. I mentioned above, my kids were fooled upon first impression, but quickly figured it out. Regardless, I can see us making this a regular entrée at the house. Really excited to layer it with meatballs, Philly steak with provolone and onions, sun-dried tomatoes with feta and spinach or cordon blue fillings. We had a lot leftover for lunches or dinners later. I love leftovers!!
