Deep Dish Pizza Casserole

This is another easy and low calorie meal. I think the whole thing took me 30 minutes and that includes the baking time. It was yummy in my tummy and easy, which is good since I had a mishap at work yesterday and am sore today!

Deep-Dish Pizza Casserole recipe

Source: Cooking Light

1 pound ground round (I used turkey instead of beef)
1 (15 ounce) can chunky Italian-style tomato sauce
Cooking spray
1 (10 ounce) can refrigerated pizza crust dough
6 (1 ounce) slices part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided

Cook meat in a medium nonstick 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 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

Unroll pizza crust dough, and press into bottom and halfway up sides of baking dish. Line bottom of pizza crust with 3 slices mozzarella cheese. Top with meat mixture. Bake, uncovered at 425 degrees F for 12 minutes.

Top with remaining 3 cheese slices, and bake 5 additional minutes or until crust is browned and cheese melts. Cool 5 minutes before serving.
