This quick dish, made with refrigerated pizza crust, piles on the flavor with pepperoni, ground beef, and assorted cheeses.
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
can (13.8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated classic pizza crust
cup pizza sauce
teaspoon dried oregano leaves, if desired
package (3 1/2-oz size) sliced pepperoni
tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
cups shredded Italian cheese blend or mozzarella cheese (6 oz)
Heat oven to 400°F. In 10-inch skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Lightly spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray. Unroll dough on work surface. Cut dough into 4 equal pieces; place on cookie sheet. Press out each piece of dough to form 6x5-inch rectangle. With fingers, create slight rim on edge of each dough rectangle. Bake 8 minutes.
Spread about 2 tablespoons pizza sauce just to rim of each crust; sprinkle with oregano. Top with pepperoni, beef and cheeses.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes until cheese in center is melted.
A tray of fresh vegetables makes a nice accompaniment to these delicious personal pizzas.
Mozzarella melts easily, making it an ideal cheese for pizza. Fontina, a mild and nutty-tasting, easy-melting cheese, is a tasty alternative.
