This is so easy and can be frozen. You can add any other fixing you like after the meat mixture on the bottom. Great to make ahead for company..35

Everyone (2 adults, 4 year-old, and a 1 year-old) loved this. I only used one pound of ground beef, and that worked out fine. I used Pizza Hut Pizza Sauce - ( Copycat) for the sauce, and added in a can of diced tomatoes. The crust and the cheese bake together to form a cheesy, chewy top that we all enjoyed. The leftovers are enough for another whole meal for us. Thanks for sharing! :)
This was really yummy! Only thing I changed was using pizza sauce instead of spaghetti, and no green peppers. I have 4 kids and a very hungry husband, and we still had leftovers! It makes a lot and is very filling! Thanks!
Crust was excellent! I added 1 tsp salt to hamburger mixture and the 1/2 tsp salt crust. Wish I had used the entire 16 oz Mozarella cheese ball. I used Turkey Pepperoni and it was delicious. The crust burned after just 14 minutes (in the center of my huge oven), so next time I'm going to use the lowest oven rack.
