I added 1lb. of browned ground turkey and topped with monzerella cheese for a main dish recipe. I omitted the sharp cheese and used 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese instead. My kids loved it.
I don't recommend using tomato paste. It came out so thick, even combined with the tomato sauce. I personally could not eat this dish. I don't know if I did something wrong, but it was awful!
I omitted the pepperoni, used all sharp cheddar, and sprinkled parmesan ontop after baking. It was very simple and very good.
Really tasty! Almost like pizza! Everybody loved it!

This was a hit at my party!
My son loves this dish. I use pizza sauce instead of the tomato sauce and paste. It's fast and easy.
This dish is what my husband would call a "garbage dish" - his favorite! I also substituted 1/4 cup parmesean for the sharp cheddar. And I did not combine the pepperoni with the other ingredients, but rather placed them evenly on the top of it all and then covered with more shredded cheese. Great!!
