  • 1/4 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. In a skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add salt, celery salt and pepper; set aside. On a floured surface, roll dough into a 13-in. circle. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 12-in. pizza pan. Spread sauce over crust to within 1/2 in. of edge. Top with cheese and beef mixture. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until crust is golden and cheese is melted. Yield: 4-6 servings.
If you don't have time to thaw frozen bread dough for Basic Beef Pizza, you can use a refrigerated pizza crust instead.
