Deep Dish Pizza Casserole

Hope you don't mind another post. Since ramping up again on WW, I've gone back and looked a some of my cookbooks. This recipe is from a WW cookbook entitled "5 ingredients, 15 minutes." This recipe is a keeper:

1 pound ground round
1 (15 oz) can chunky Italian-style tomato sauce
Cooking spray
1 (10 oz) can refrigerated pizza crust dough
1 1/2 cups (6 oz) preshredded park-skim mozz. cheese
(I also add onions and peppers as toppings)


1. Preheat oven to 425
2. Cook meat in a nonstick skillet over medium-hgih heat until browned, stirring until it crumbles. Drain, if necessary, and return to skillet. Add tomato sauce, and cook until heated.

3. While meat cooks, coat a 13x9 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Unroll pizza crust dough, and press into bottom and halfway up sides of baking dish. Top bottom of bizza crust with meat mixture.

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 (you could probably get more than 6 if sliced smaller)

Re: Deep Dish Pizza Casserole

That sounds really good!
I bet it would be good with some turkey pepperoni added too. 17 slices is only 2 points, so you could get by without adding much to the points value.

Re: Deep Dish Pizza Casserole

shelly, i added the turkey pepperoni.i just chopped up about 9 and added them with the sauce, good! no difference in pts, my kids are still asking me to make it again!

Re: Deep Dish Pizza Casserole

oh, i also chopped up green peppers and cooked them with the beef(so my kids wouldn't notice)and layered fresh mushrooms under the cheese, any way to get a few veggies in, it was soooo good!

Re: Deep Dish Pizza Casserole

Can someone tell me the difference between ground round and ground beef? Can you use lean ground beef in this recipe?

Re: Deep Dish Pizza Casserole

ground round is a leaner cut of beef than regular ground beef.
