Ground Beef Pepperoni Pizza Casserole

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This is delicious! The complete casserole (with the crust on) can be prepared up to a day in advance and refrigerated until ready to bake. I used mozzeralla slices for this in place of shredded mozzeralla... add in any of your other favorites also.

I had wrong expectations of this. I thought the batter poured on top would bake up on the bottom, creating a bottom crust. It does not do that - it stays on top. BUT this is a really good pizza casserole, that the kids and I really enjoyed this afternoon. I did make a major change though in that I didn't add either the pepperoni nor the bacon. Once I had poured the meat sauce into the pan, it certainly looked like enough and, in order to cut some calories, I left it there and proceeded with the recipe without pepperoni and bacon. Worked out just fine for us and I'm glad to have saved a few calories!
