Deep Dish Pizza Bake

Now I know this is not "traditional" deep dish pizza as I am from Chicago and I'd like to say that I know all about deep dish. Maybe I'd consider it a pizza casserole but I've been using this recipe for years as one of my simple "go to" dinners and it's called "deep dish" so whatever. It's easy, cheesy, and a family favorite around here!

Deep Dish Pizza Bake
12 oz. italian sausage ( I used italian chicken sausage)
1 jar pizza sauce (I like classico)
1 (10-ounce) can refrigerated pizza dough
2 cups shredded mozzarella
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. garlic powder
Any other toppings of your choice (I used some reduced fat 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 Chicken sausage, stirring until browned. Add pizza sauce and garlic powder 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!
