This was really good and the entire family liked it. My only problem was that it seemed to dry out after baking and we had to squirt some ketchup on it to eat it. Other than that, the flavor was good. I used garlic powder instead of salt and followed another reviewer's advice and subbed cooked Italian sausage for the ground beef (which was great!). I also broiled it for 5 minutes to get a nice brown on the cheese and pepperonis. I'm sure we will make this again with some added sauce. Thanks for posting!
Pretty good recipe.. I used veggie burger crumbles and vegetarian pepperoni to make it healthier.
I got mixed reviews on this. I would probably have to play around a little to get it exactly to our liking but it wasn't something we couldn't eat.
