Pizza used to be a strictly Italian dish with red sauce, cheese, and toppings. Not so anymore; it seems that anything with a crust, some kind of sauce, and toppings qualifies as a pizza. The following Easy Reuben Pizza is not traditional, not at all Italian, and not a dish to be missed. The crisp crust is made quickly with Master Baking Mix , rye flour, and caraway seeds; it doesn’t need a mixer, and doesn’t need to be rolled out. Bottled thousand island dressing makes up the pizza sauce, which is topped with deli-sliced corned beef, sauerkraut, and Swiss cheese. Hands-on time is about 15 minutes; baking time is 25-30 minutes.
With this easy pizza, Reuben sandwich lovers can have the best of both worlds – flavors of the sandwich and the simplicity of easy-to-hold pizza wedges.
