The Atkikns Meat-zza

This is one of the old recipes. from a a quick and easy recipe book. There are a few modifications, but it is good and very filling.

2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese grated.
1/4 cup medium salsa

1 6 oz Can of Sliced Mushrooms
1 Tsp of Season Salt
1 glove garlic finely minced
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp ground fennel.

Mix the egg, season salt, fennel garlic oregano and meat in a bowl (The egg is to aid hold the meat together as soon as cooked, not a necessity but handy) Pat the meat into the 9 round baking Dish The meat must be spread evenly on the bottom of the dish, about 1/2 thick Location the dish into the oven at 450 degrees for 10 minutes Eliminate and drain grease.


Soon after the meat is accomplished you can empty the baking dish by turning it upside down over the cookie sheet for a crispier crust Or you can can leave it in the baking dish

add the cheese, the salsa, and sprinkle the onion and mushrooms over the top, put back in the oven just long enough to melt the cheese and heat the veggies.

The origanal recipe severed two, but I always found it could really feed 4.
