Deep Dish Pizza...Casserole?

I got this recipe from my WW leader. She emailed me a file of WW recipes that helped her lose 65+ pounds five years ago. She swears by this one and we thought it First of all, it was huge. Which is great for a night that I haven't eaten much during the day, but today was not a great on plan day. Not a terrible day but not fantastic either. We liked this but maybe we just weren't in the pizza kinda mood (if that is possible!). One slice though (1/6th of the pizza) is definitely a good sized portion. :) Oh and please excuse the aluminum pan...I didn't want to do another dish. Hee hee!

Deep-Dish Pizza Casserole

(source: WW leader)

1 pound 95% Lean Ground Beef

1/2 cup Green Peppers, chopped

1/2 cup Onion, chopped

1 small can Mushrooms, drained (I omitted)

1 – 15 oz. can Chunky Italian-Style Tomato Sauce

Cooking Spray

1 – 10 oz. can refrigerated Pizza Crust Dough

1-1/2 cup (6 oz) 2% Shredded Mozzarella

Cook meat and vegetables in a non-stick skillet until browned, stirring until it crumbles. Drain and return to skillet. Add tomato sauce, and cook until heated through.

Coat a 9x13-inch-baking dish with cooking spray. Unroll pizza crust dough, and press into bottom and halfway up sides of baking dish. Top with meat mixture. Bake, uncovered at 425 for 12 minutes. Top with cheese and bake 5 minutes or until crust is browned and cheese is melted.

Cool 5 minutes before serving.

6 Servings – 6 POINTS each

you could even cut points by using fat-free shredded cheese. just spray a little PAM over the top of it to keep it form drying out. MH doesn't even know i switched to FF cheese (and i'm going to keep it that way!)
