Single Lady Cornbread Pizza

Single Lady Cornbread Pizza // take a megabite

Sometimes my hunger sneaks up on me and I require dinner on the quick. Sometimes on these nights I’m feeling too lazy to grate cheese. (Who am I!?) That’s where this pizza comes in. The best part, besides it’s tastiness, is that this can be whipped up and ready to eat in under 30 minutes.

There’s just no reason not to make this all will-nilly-like, ya’ know? It’s a breeze to throw together and goodness knows I always have pizza fixin’s in the house. I topped this particular little guy with homemade tomato sauce (freezer-style) asiago cheese (pre-shredded), crumbled goat cheese, baby spinach, and red pepper flakes.

P.S. I also make this quesadilla and this salad all single lady-like. Oh! And this crumble or cobbler for dessert.

I already eat way too much cornbread, now I have a reason to eat it in the form of pizza. :)
