Steps

Step 1

A pot of salted water should be boiled. After that, cook orzo pasta according to package instructions until it's al dente. Once done, drain the orzo and set it aside.

Step 2

It begins with heating olive oil in a skillet and sautéing chopped onions until they become fine. Minced garlic is then added and cooked for an additional 1-2 minutes. After that, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, dried oregano, dried basil, salt, and pepper are added to the skillet and mixed well. The sauce is then allowed to simmer for about 5-7 minutes to let the flavours meld together. Finally, the oven is preheated to 375°F (190°C), although it is not specified what this temperature is used for.

Step 3

Combine the cooked orzo and the tomato sauce mixture in the skillet and stir until the orzo is evenly covered. Then, transfer half of the orzo mixture to a baking dish and spray half of the mozzarella and Parmesan cheese over the orzo. Finally, add your favourite pizza toppings evenly over the cheese.

Step 4

Repeat the layers, finishing with a warm sprinkle of cheese on top. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbling and melted, in a preheated oven. If desired, broil for an additional 2-3 minutes to reach a golden brown crust. Before serving, take it out of the oven and allow it to cool for a few minutes.
