Recipe of the Week! Deep Dish Pizza Casserole

We had this a couple of weeks ago, and we loved it and I would definitely make this again. We had a lot of leftovers so it made a couple of good lunches for both of us and even another dinner one night.

Deep Dish Pizza Casserole

1/2 pound ground round
1/2 pound italian sausage
1 green pepper chopped
1 onion chopped
1 8 oz package mushrooms chopped
salt and pepper
garlic powder
1 (15 ounce) can chunky Italian-style tomatoes
1 can tomato paste
Cooking spray
1 (10 ounce) can refrigerated pizza crust dough
12 ounces shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1.Preheat oven to 425°.
2. Cook meat in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring until it crumbles, add seasonings. Drain, if necessary, and return to skillet. Add tomatoes, and cook until heated through. 3. While meat cooks, coat a 13 x 9 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Unroll pizza crust dough, and press into bottom and halfway up sides of the baking dish. Top the pizza crust with meat mixture add vegetables.
4. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 12 minutes. Top with cheese, and bake 5 minutes or until crust is browned and cheese melts. Cool 5 minutes before serving. Yield: 6 servings.

Can't really remember how I stumbled on your blog. I was looking for recipes and this sounded great. I tried it this week and it was a big hit with my family. I will definitely make again.

Great choice!
