Deep-Dish Pizza Casserole

This is a great simple recipe that I recently came across. I used shredded mozzarella and added onions, green peppers, and mushrooms. I couldn't find the Italian style tomato sauce, so I just got regular and doctored it up with herbs & spices.

Deep-Dish Pizza Casserole

1 lb. ground round
1 (15 oz can) chunky Italian-style tomato sauce
cooking spray
1 (10 oz) can refrigerated pizza crust dough
6 (1 oz) slices part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided

Cook meat in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring until it crumbles. Drain, if necessary and return to skillet. Add tomato sauce, and cook until heated.

 While meat cooks, coat a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray. Unroll pizza crust dough and press into bottom and halfway up the sides of dish. Line bottom of crust with half of the mozzarella. Top with meat mixture (and any added ingredients).

Bake uncovered at 425 degrees for 12 minutes. Top with remaining cheese and bake 5 more minutes or until browned and melted. Let sit 5 minutes before serving.
