Deep Dish Pizza Casserole

Posted: Updated:

Our Test Kitchen put an easy spin on the popular Chicago-style "deep dish pizza" and this is the tasty result. Anyone can make our Deep Dish Pizza Casserole and everyone will love it!!

Serves: 6

Cooking Time: 30 min

What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 (15-ounce) can chunky Italian-style tomato sauce
  • 1 (10-ounce) can refrigerated pizza dough
  • 6 (1-ounce) slices mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, brown beef, stirring until meat crumbles and is no longer pink. Drain, if necessary, and return to skillet. Add tomato sauce and cook until heated.
     
  3.  Meanwhile, unroll pizza dough, and press into bottom and halfway up sides of prepared baking dish (see Notes). Line bottom of pizza crust with 3 slices mozzarella cheese. Top with meat mixture.
     
  4. Bake, uncovered, 12 minutes. Top with remaining cheese slices and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake an additional 5 minutes, or until crust is browned and cheese melts. Cool 5 minutes before serving.
