Step 1Gather the ingredients.
Step 2Preheat the oven to 400 F. Spray a 15 x 10-inch jelly roll pan or a 14-inch round pizza pan with a nonstick baking spray containing flour and set aside.
Step 3In a large, heavy skillet, cook the ground beef, pork sausage, onion, garlic, and carrots together until the meat is browned, stirring to break up the meat. This should take about 6 to 9 minutes.
Step 4Drain the mixture well, if necessary, and set aside. Stir in the drained mushrooms and set the beef mixture aside.
Step 5Then, in a medium bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder, and pepper and mix well with a wire whisk. Beat the eggs in a small bowl until combined.
Step 6Stir the eggs and milk into the flour mixture and stir just until combined; do not overbeat or the crust will be tough.
Step 7Pour the batter into the prepared pan, gently spreading so the batter covers the pan's surface. Arrange the meat mixture evenly on the batter.
Step 8Bake the pizza at 400 F for 20 to 25 minutes or until the pizza crust is golden brown. While the pizza is baking, combine the tomato sauce, mustard, and Italian seasoning in a small bowl and mix well.
Step 9Remove the pizza from the oven, spoon the sauce mixture over the meat and sprinkle with the cheeses. Return the pizza to the oven for 10 to 15 minutes longer or until the cheese is melted and begins to brown. Cut into squares to serve.
