Today’s Menu: Deep Dish Pizza Casserole

 

Deep Dish Pizza Casserole 011
We have the hazy, hot, and humid weather back! Awfully humid out there today. Had a bowl of Kroger Brand Bran Flakes for Breakfast. Ran a quick errand for Mom and back home for the day. Finished up some laundry for her and did some outside cleaning before it got too humid out. After that it was “Sofa City” after that, just my easy chair and remote for the afternoon. For dinner tonight I prepared a Deep Dish Pizza Casserole.

 

 

Deep Dish Pizza Casserole 001

I had made this a couple of weeks ago and everybody loved it! So I’m preparing it again for dinner tonight. To make this Pizza I’ll need the following: 1 (13 ounce) Pillsbury™ Refrigerated Pizza Crust, 1 1/2 cups Ragu Pizza Sauce, Jennie – O Lean Ground Turkey Breakfast Sausage ( 1 lb. package and precooked) , Sliced Black and Green Olives, Sliced Mushrooms, 2 1/2 cups of your favorite cheese (I like using Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Italian Blend Cheese or Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Mozzarella Cheese), Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, and 1/3 cup Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese.

 
To start I fried the Ground Turkey, till no longer pink, and sliced the Olives. Then to prepare the dish I preheated the oven to 425°F. Greased a 9×13 inch baking dish with Pam Cooking Spray w/ Olive Oil and sprinkled Corn Meal across the bottom of the dish. I like using the Corn Meal when making Pizza, the Corn meal on the bottom of the Deep Dish Pizza Casserole 009crust gives it nice texture and helps keep it from sticking to the dish or pan. 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 Ground Turkey and Sliced Mushrooms, and the Sliced Olives 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 and already a family favorite! The crust came out a perfect golden brown. And all the toppings combined to make it one delicious Pizza. Plus you can use what ever toppings you want for this. 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 Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
