A SERIOUSLY DELICIOUS PIZZA RECIPE

It’s that time of year again! The National Cornbread Festival is happening in the small town (but with big hearts!) of South Pittsburg, Tennessee! It happens every year in April. I have been fortunate enough to visit the festival a couple of times over the years. It is totally worth the journey to this special little town in Tennessee. They roll out the red carpet for visitors every year and it is always so much fun! It’s perfect family fun.

    1. Hi Rebecca, I would reheat it in a skillet. Almost like you’re reheating pizza. Place a slice in the skillet on a low to medium heat to gently warm it up. You may need to cover it to let the cheese melt again. Hope that helps!

  1. If I don’t have small 6 oz packets of cornbread mix, would I just use 6 oz of mix from a larger package? Same difference? No adjustments? Thanks

  2. I made this and baked it on a large cookie sheet, I like thinner crust. Then I top it with refried beans and taco meat and cheese. Once melted I top with all my taco fixings. My older less picky kids love it. I couldn’t figure out what to do since they stopped making the Grands corn biscuits. Thanks.

  3. 5 stars
    I made this tonight as per the directions and it was so good,,,,,a hit with my picky eater !,,going into my rotation….Thank you for great recipes Brandi ….

  4. Are you going to be at the Cornbread Festival this year? I am going – for the first time ever, if you can believe it! I’d love to see you there. The cornbread pizza looks great, by the way.
