For the "crust"
1 8oz package of room temp cream cheese
1/4 tsp ground plack pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup pizza sauce (I used the jar sauce I had in the fridge)
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
and then whatever other toppings that you want..... pepperoni, peppers, mushrooms, hamburger, sausage, pineapple, tomatoes, etc. We used just cheese for our first time making this.
Preheat oven to 350*. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray. Mix cream cheese, pepper, garlic powder and parmesan cheese until combined. Spread into baking dish. Bake for 12-15 min or until golden brown. Allow crust to cool for 10 minutes.
Spread sauce onto "crust" and top with cheese and other toppings. Bake another 8-10 minutes until cheese is melted.
