Notes

  • Use a preheated oven
  • Have fun with different toppings.
  • Ideally shred your own mozzarella, pre shredded does not melt as well.
  • The skillet will come out hot, hot, hot from the oven! Make sure you use a towel or oven glove!
  • Make this Pizza Gnocchi Bake vegetarian by omitting the pepperoni.
  • Let the Gnocchi Bake rest for a few mins before serving.
  • You can use any toppings you'd like in place of the pepperoni! Get creative and enjoy.
