Easy Basic Crustless Pizza Crust and Pizza Recipes

We love pizza of all sizes and shapes. My family prefers thin, hand tossed, thick, Chicago Deep Dish crust and more! Some of us love a lot of sauce, others prefer less. Our choice of toppings vary, too and for the most part we haven't found a pizza we don't like. Including in this love of pizza is a crustless pizza idea I tried out on my family. It is bread crustless but still has a crust to hold up the ingredients. It is more of a fork pizza recipe instead of a hold in your hand pizza. Give it a try!

Crustless Pizza Recipes - This is an easy recipe to use your favorite toppings.
Once the above crust is done you can add the sauce, toppings & cheese. Substitute any of the below for your own favorites.

Supreme Crustless Pizza

Ingredients

1-2 cups tomato or pizza sauce (depends on how much sauce you like)
1-2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 cup veggies, chopped (raw or grilled)
1/4 cup jalapeños
1 cup meat (precooked sausage, pepperoni, bacon, etc)
2 teaspoons of any combination of seasonings- Italian seasoning, garlic powder, basil, oregano, black pepper
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

Directions

1- On the cooked crust, layer on the sauce, veggies, meat, cheeses and spices.
2- Bake in a 350 degree oven until bubbly at approximately 10-15 minutes.
3- Let cool 10 minutes, cut and serve.

Kitchen Notes-
This is such a flexible pizza. Use whatever you want and in any combination. For the crust and extra Parmesan cheese on this pizza we used Mama Francesca Parmesan, Basil & Oregano combination. This was a new product in our Walmart and turned out a winner for the crust and as the seasoning. If you don't have such product, just use regular grated Parmesan Cheese. I didn't use this combo cheese for the Taco Pizza below.

Taco Crustless Pizza

Ingredients

1-2 cups of salsa (depends on how much sauce you want)
1/4 cup tomato or pizza sauce (opt)
1-2 cups taco cheese or cheddar, shredded
1 cup taco meat (we used leftover from taco night)
1/2 cup jalapeños
1/2 cup tomatoes
handful chopped cilantro (opt)

Directions

1- On the cooked crust, layer on the salsa & sauce, meat, cheeses, veggies and cilantro.
2- Bake in a 350 degree oven until bubbly - approx. 10-15 minutes.
3- Let cool 10 minutes, cut and serve.
4- Before serving, you could top with fresh tomatoes, shredded lettuce, sour cream, black olives, etc. We didn't do that but plan to next time.

I'm giving you heads up on this crustless pizza recipe. You will want to make more than you think. I made 2 pizzas for 5 people (boys/men) and it wasn't enough! Because there isn't any crust to fill people up, more is needed. We love this and can't wait to make it again and again and again.
