Baked Pizza Casserole


I like to peruse The Nest a lot. I read forums about cooking (of course), gardening, financial matters and fitness. I found this blog on the health & fitness forum and I’m SO glad I did. Amanda of Random Ramblings posted this great recipe that I just had to try. It’s W/W friendly and involves PIZZA. I’m there!

Source: adapted from Random Ramblings


  • 1 lb lean beef
  • 1 can chunky italian tomato sauce
  • 1 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese  (We used 1 1/2 cups…I love cheese!)
  • 1 refrigerated roll of pizza dough
  • 1/2 tsp. each of oregano, marjoram and basil
  • 1 tsp. each of salt and pepper


  1. Brown meat in a pot and add spices during the cooking time. Add tomato sauce and stir together.
  2. Put meat mixture into pan. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes. Add cheese and cook another 5 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Spray a 9×13 pan (or use parchment like I did) and spread dough onto bottom. Make sure it goes up the side a little to catch the toppings when you put them in the pan.


Serves: 6   POINTS* value: 8 (since I added extra cheese!)
