“This is a quick and hearty vegetarian meal for one that I cooked up tonight for dinner, and it doesn't call for a pizza base, sauce, or special cheeses! It's a bit "upside down", with yummy parmesan cheese in the crust, followed by a layer of sliced tomatoes, which acts as the "pizza sauce". A little bit of stove-top "crust"-making and a little pop in the oven, and your yummy, unconventional pizza is ready!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together Bisquick, milk and water in a bowl and whisk until a smooth batter of pourable consistency is formed.
  2. Ensure that the batter isn't too thin; you need a substantial base to hold all those veggies!
  3. Preheat oven to 250 degrees Celcius (480 degrees Fahrenheit) using the top heating element only.
  4. Instructions for ovens without this facility with follow.
  5. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside.
  6. Heat a non-stick skillet (or spray a regular skillet with cooking spray) on a medium-high flame until hot.
  7. Pour the Bisquick batter onto the skillet quickly, such that you get a 6-inch diameter circle or thereabouts.
  8. My"crusts" are usually pretty darn weird-shaped!
  9. Immediately sprinkle oregano, paprika and parmesan cheese over the top of the"crust".
  10. Cook only on one side for a minute or two, or until the bottom of the pancake is well browned (This is IF your oven has the facility of heating only the top element).
  11. If your oven is old-fashioned and it heats from all sides, cook the crust until it just starts to brown.
  12. Now remove the crust from the skillet and place it carefully (same side up, DON'T FLIP) on the baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
  13. Carefully place the tomato slices over the crust covering as much of it as you can.
  14. Now top with onion and bell pepper slices, and corn kernels.
  15. Sprinkle with black pepper.
  16. Bake in the preheated oven with only the top heating element switched on, even now, if you have that facility, for 15 minutes.
  17. Even in a regular oven, with all heating elements switched on, bake for 15 minutes (you adjusted the time during the crust-making, see!).
  18. Remove from the baking sheet onto your serving plate gently.
  19. Attempt to slice it, give up, grab a large spoon and dig in!
  20. Relish the satisfaction and thank the parmesan cheese.
  21. enjoy!
