Submitted by: Gail McIntyre
1 pound uncooked ground turkey
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped green sweet pepper
1/2 of a 3-1/2-ounce package sliced pepperoni
1 15-1/2-ounce jar pizza sauce
1 4-ounce can mushroom stems and pieces, drained
1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds, crushed
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1/2 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
6 ounces thinly sliced mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1. In a large skillet cook ground turkey, onion, and sweet pepper until
meat is brown and vegetables are tender. Drain off fat.
2. Cut pepperoni slices in half. Stir pepperoni, pizza sauce, mushrooms,
fennel seeds, oregano, and basil into meat mixture. Bring to boiling;
reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. Meanwhile, grease the sides of a 3-quart rectangular baking dish; set
aside. For topping, in a medium mixing bowl combine eggs, milk, and oil.
Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 1 minute. Add flour;
beat about 1 minute more or until smooth. Spoon the hot meat mixture
into the prepared baking dish. Arrange mozzarella cheese on top of meat
mixture. Pour topping over mozzarella cheese, covering completely.
Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
4. Bake in a 400 degree F oven about 30 minutes or until topping is
puffed and golden brown. Serve immediately. Makes 8 servings.
