Deep Dish Pizza Casserole

I love this dish. It makes a great weeknight meal. Super simple to prepare and a hit with the whole family!

Deep Dish Pizza Casserole
Serves 8
Cal 236, Fat 11.3g , Carbs 20.1g, Fiber 1g, Protein 11.6g

8 oz. crumbled Italian sausage
1 jar pizza sauce (I like classico)
1 (10-ounce) can refrigerated pizza dough
2 cups shredded cheese for pizza
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Any other toppings of your choice (I used some turkey pepperoni)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

In a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, brown Italian sausage, stirring until sausage crumbles and is no longer pink. Drain, and return to skillet. Add pizza sauce and cook until heated.

Meanwhile, unroll pizza dough, and press into bottom and halfway up sides of prepared baking dish.  Line bottom of pizza crust with one cup of the shredded cheese. Top with sausage mixture, parmesan cheese, any other toppings of your choice, and the remaining shredded cheese.

Bake, uncovered, 15-20 minutes or until crust is brown and cheese is melted. Cool 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
