"Very easy little pizzas to make -- my family counts on them for New Year's Eve! This recipe uses plenty of melted cheese, a dash of Worcestershire sauce and a dash of ketchup, all mixed with beef and sausage. Perfect for preparing ahead and freezing! " — DREW810

ground pork sausage
processed cheese food
1 (1 pound) loaf
cocktail rye bread
We make these all the time at holidays or when the choice arises. I do not use the ground beef just Jimmy Dean Sage sausage.
Quite good as party finger food. Nothing fantastic, but tasty, easy, and unassuming yet unique. Three stars, however, because processed cheese spread is a horrid thing to recommend in any situation. I used sliced provolone for half of the "pizzas," and smoked gouda for the other half. Next time I'll swap the catsup (I used homemade) and Worcestershire for Sriracha and some other red sauce as well.
I use a spicy mustard instead of worcestershire and ketchup and the hot and zesty roll of sausage. There is no need to microwave the cheese and dirty a bowl. Drain the grease from the meat, put it back in your skillet, add the cubed cheese and cook until melted.
I made these party pizzas for a party I was catering..........I made enough for 50 people, and I still ran out early! These were the hit of the party, and they travel well! Make the topping ahead of time, then assemble and bake at the party. I kept them warm in a chafing dish. Way to go!
A dear departed friend gave me this recipe years ago. She added a handful of oregano. She also gave me the tip that these freeze very well. Just put them together on the party rye, freeze on the cookie sheets, and when you're ready to eat them, just toss a few on a baking sheet and bake at 400 until browned on top.
Good, although I only used an 8 oz. loaf of rye bread and that worked perfectly. 8 oz is equal to one loaf at my local store, not 1 lb. as the recipe suggests. My husband said he would have like this better with some pizza sauce on the bread, although that is no the traditional pizza rye that I know. Also, a friend of mine told me she hads a little mozzarella and oregano to the topping.
These were a big hit at a small family Christmas gathering I hosted. Everyone was familiar with them, had many names for them, but all had the same opinion - that they are delicious! This is an easy recipe that is sure to please!
