Pizza Casserole

This was dinner tonight....a very easy recipe and good as well! I think next time i may add pepperoni on top. I sprayed the crust with olive oil spray before baking and sprinkled it with garlic powder and some italian seasoning.

Here is my trusty helper! Notice the spatula...he was ready to help mom stir the meat!

Pizza Casserole

1 lb of extra lean ground beef

1/2 onion, chopped

2 cloves of garlic, minced

1 jar of sliced mushrooms, drained

1 jar of your favorite tomato sauce (i used pizza sauce)

olive oil cooking spray

1 10 oz can regrigerated pizza dough

6 oz of park skim mozzarella cheese, divided

Preheat over to 425. in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, cook onion, garlic until softened, add meat stirring until it's browned. Drain and return to skillet. Add musrooms and tomato sauce, and cook until heated through and most of the sauce has been absorbed. While meat cooks, coat a 13X9 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Unroll pizza dough and press into bottom and halfway up sides of the baking dish. Pre-bake in the oven for 5 minutes. remove from oven, then ada a layer of cheese, then layer the meat mixture on top of that, then top meat mixture with another layer of cheese. Bake, uncovered for 12 min. or until cruse is browned and cheese is melted. cool 5 minutes before serving.
