Matzo-Pizza Lasagna. Singing Along To Motherfolkers By Maria And The Gay.

Every time I say the name of this recipe I think of Machu Picchu. Doh!

Matzo-Pizza Lasagna is fusion food at its best. Matzo is an interesting alternative to pasta. The rest of the ingredients blend classic lasagna flavors with that of supreme pizza.

Highly recommended for your dinner really soon.

Matzo-Pizza Lasagna


4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
10 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
1 onion, finely chopped
1 small green bell pepper, thinly sliced
8 ounces italian sausage (sweet or hot), casings removed
4 cups jarred marinara sauce
5 – 6 square matzo sheets
15 oz ricotta cheese, preferably fresh
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
1/2 cup thinly sliced pepperoni
1 teaspoon dried oregano


1. In a large skillet, heat 2 Tbs of the oil over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook until nicely browned, about 5 minutes. Add the onion, lower the heat to medium and cook, stirring, until tender, about 5 minutes; transfer to a plate.

2. In the same pan, heat the remaining oil over medium heat. Add the bell pepper and cook for 2 minutes. Add the sausage, stir and crumble over medium high heat, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat.

3. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 400℉.

4. Lightly grease an 8-inch square glass baking dish. Spread 1 cup of marinara over the bottom. Top with 1 matzo. Break off a piece from another matzo to evenly cover the bottom. Layer on 1/2 cup marinara, the mushroom mixture, half the ricotta, 1/2 cup marinara and 1/2 cup mozzarella.

5. Add another layer of matzo, 1 cup marinara, the sausage mixture, the remaining ricotta, 1/2 cup marinara and a final layer of matzo. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup marinara and 1 cup mozzarella, then with the pepperoni and oregano.

6. Cover snugly with foil, set on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover the pan and bake until golden and bubbling, about 15 minutes. Let cool for 20 minutes before cutting.

I was in the car with my kids yesterday, when this song came on during a podcast I was listening to.

We all laughed at the title, Motherfolkers, and everyone was singing the chorus by the end of the tune.

Infectious little bugger, this one.
