crazy pizza...

crazy pizza

8 oz extra lean ground beef or turkey
1 3/4 cup pizza sauce
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms (if desired)
1/2 cup chopped green pepper (if desired)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup sliced ripe olives (if desired)
1 can Pillsbury refrigerated buttermilk biscuits - 7.5 oz can
2/3 cup grated mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8x8 inch baking dish with cooking spray. In a large skillet brown meat. Add mushrooms, green pepper, onion and olives. Mix well to combine. Stir in pizza sauce. Remove skillet from heat. Separate biscuits and cut each biscuit into 4 pieces. Gently stir biscuit pieces into meat mixture. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish. Bake 20 minutes. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese evenly over the top. Continue baking until cheese melts, about 10 minutes. Place baking dish on a wire rack and let set 5 minutes.
Ok, easy peasy! This was such an easy dish to throw together. Not only that, but it really does taste surprisingly good. I am not the biggest fan of biscuits in a can...and I really don't love casseroles (I even hate the word), but I really loved this, so did the fam. You could easily double this, just bake in a 9x13 if doing that. And the green peppers, mushrooms & olives are only suggestions, you could use any pizza toppings you like. I actually only used olives. Not too many pics on this one...I was STARVING and just wanted to get going on the making & the eating!!

This is a great idea! I cannot get refrigerator biscuits, but I wonder how it may work with homemade biscuit dough or even with pizza dough cut up in small pieces? I make pizza almost every Friday, I will have to do this instead one Friday!
