Recipe for Hillbilly Pizza

Not sure where this recipe came from, so chefs and diners beware!

[I have family from Kentucky, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, but they prefer to remain anonymous]


Dough – two cups cornmeal, half-cup wild goat milk, half-cup of lard

Sauce – one cup ‘maters, one cup of water

Cheese – half-cup curd cottage cheese, quarter-cup goat cheese

Spices – black pepper, sage, dried dandelion greens, hot Tabasco sauce


Mix dough by hand. Place on well-scrubbed hubcap. (your hubcap, not the neighbor’s) Mix sauce with spices and cover dough. Cover sauce with cheese and toppings. Place in a roaring fireplace and bake until it smells right good.

Suggested Toppings



Rocky Mt. Oysters




Yeller squash
