Friday: Pepperoni Noodle Pizza

Super frugal meal time. This is another fun recipe from my Dinners on a Dime book. I LOVED this one. It's basically a pizza that uses noodles instead of a pizza crust.
1/2 lb. ground beef
4 3-oz. pkgs. beef-flavored ramen noodles, uncooked and divided
1 Tbs. oil
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup pizza sauce
1/2 cup sliced black olives (I left this out, but I am sure it would have been might tasty)
25 slices pepperoni (or less)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Optional: Italian seasoning to taste.

Brown beef in a skillet over medium heat; drain, remove beef from skillet and set aside. Cook noodles as directed on package; drain. Stir in 2-3 seasoning packets to taste, reserving the rest for another use. Add oil to skillet; heat over medium heat. Spread noodles evenly in skillet; pour eggs over noodles. Cover and cook for about 2 minutes, until eggs begin to set. Spread sauce over noodles, leaving a one-inch border around the edge. Top with beef and remaining ingredients. Cover and cook over medium-low heat until cheese is melted, about 5-7 minutes. Cut into wedges. This cuts beautifully after it is cooked. I wish I had taken a picture of it after I had cut into it, but I didn't so this will have to do. Serves 4.
