New recipes - Pizza Skillet Hot Dish

This week I have been trying out new dishes to make for dinner. I have been getting bored with some of the ones I have been making so I decided to whip out my cook books and start experimenting. It must be the nesting in me. :-)

Sunday Night we tried one from Pillsbury (where most of mine come from), it's called "Pizza Skillet Hot Dish". It is so yummy! And Payten even loved it!
Hope you enjoy!
