The pan right out of the oven!

Review: SO flavorful! We followed the original recipe exactly, except I used red onion instead of white, and red bell pepper instead of green. I was really happy with how it turned out - so different! I liked the batter on top and rarely get to use my mixer - so that was fun!! I'm definitely going to make this again - maybe i'll add some red pepper flakes to make it a little more flavorful, and maybe less cheese to make room for calories for turkey pepperonis, which I think would be fab in this!! One thing I loved about it - lots of food - I love a healthy portion!
