Quick Facts

Servings: 4
Cook Time: 45 min.
Ground beef, peppers and pizza dough make this Italian classic a satisfying meal all by itself.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes with onions, drained
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano leaves
  • 1 cup shredded Italian cheese blend
  • 1 Tbs cornmeal
  • 1 package (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust dough

Directions

  • Heat oven to 400F. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add ground beef and bell pepper; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 3/4-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally. Pour off drippings. Stir in tomatoes and oregano; continue cooking 5 to 7 minutes or until liquid has evaporated. Remove from heat; stir in cheese. Set aside.
  • Sprinkle cornmeal evenly over rimmed baking sheet. Unroll pizza dough lengthwise on baking sheet, straightening edges of dough if necessary. Spoon beef filling over long half of dough, leaving 1-inch border on 3 sides. Gently lift and pull top half of dough over filling to enclose; pinch dough edges to seal.
  • Bake in 400F oven 15 to 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Cut crosswise into 8 slices.
