Today’s Menu: Deep Dish Pizza Casserole

 

Deep Dish Pizza Casserole 013
It was a beautiful Summer Morning here in West Chester. But watching the early morning news it was a bad day out on the inter-states. 3 major wrecks had 2 different interstates shutdown this morning, slow down people and take your time! After a light Breakfast I ventured out to Meijer, went for just a few items and ended up with a cart full! Luckily I didn’t need gas, gas prices shot up over $3 a gallon overnight! Back home finished up a couple of loads of laundry for Mom and did some cleaning around the house. With everything done got the cart out for a while to enjoy the day. For dinner tonight I prepared a new recipe, Deep Dish Pizza Casserole.

 

 
To prepare the dish I preheated the oven to 425°F. Greased a 9×13 inch baking dish with Pam Cooking Spray w/ Deep Dish Pizza Casserole 002Olive Oil. I unrolled the Pillsbury Pizza Dough, and pressed it into the bottom and halfway up sides of prepared baking dish. Then spread the dough with the Ragu Pizza Sauce, and then sprinkle the cooked Jennie – O Lean Italian Seasoned Ground Turkey over the top. Cover the Pizza with Cheese and then top with Turkey Pepperoni. Sprinkle the Parmesan over top. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and the Cheese is melted. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with more Parmesan. And we have a Deep Dish Pizza Casserole. I’ll start off by saying this is one of those Keeper Recipes! The crust came out a perfect golden brown. And all the toppings combined to make it one delicious Pizza. Mom and Dad both said it was one of the best Pizzas they had ever had, so it’s Parent Approved!  For dessert later a bowl of Del Monte Sliced Peaches.
