Meat Crust Pizza

My sister, Pixie, found this while participating in a Somersize e-group.  My family wipes it out every time I make it.

1 lb. ground beef

1 bl. Italian sausage

1 package of pepperoni (and other toppings as desired)

1 cup of pizza sauce

1 & 1/2 packages of shredded mozzarella cheese (3 cups)

Brown the ground beef and sausage together.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Put the beef/sausage mixture in a large bowl.  Add one package of cheese (2 cups).  Mix it together well.  Put the mixture on a cookie sheet and spread to the edges.  Put the pizza sauce on the mixture.  Place the pepperoni, etc. on top.  Top with cheese.  Cook for 15 minutes or so.  When the top cheese start to get brown, it is done.  The crust is really good and because of the cheese, it will hold its consistency, especially if you let it sit out for a few minutes before cutting.

I usually make this in a 9″x13″ pan.  We like to add thinly sliced onions and bell peppers, black olives, and a few mushrooms.  Any favorite pizza topping will work for this delish dish.
