  • 1/2 pound bulk Italian sausage, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 package (8 ounces) sliced pepperoni
  • 3 cups biscuit/baking mix – (substitute : For each 1 cup of biscuit/baking mix called for in a recipe, use 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1 tablespoon vegetable shortening [changing it to 1 T butter].)
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

  • In a bowl, combine the pizza sauce, sausage and pepperoni; set aside. In another bowl, combine the biscuit mix, milk, eggs, butter and garlic salt. Spread half of the batter on the bottom and up the sides of a greased 10-in. fluted tube pan. Spoon meat mixture over batter; cover with remaining batter.

Using two large metal spatulas, transfer cake to a serving platter; serve immediately. Yield: 8 servings.
