Cheesy Herb Pizza Recipe

Before I discovered this recipe, making really good pizza—especially the crust—was difficult. Now I get compliments on this pizza all the time!—Ms. Debbie Stieg, Ekalaka, Montana
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 cup canned diced tomatoes
  • 1 medium onion, diced

  • 1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2-1/2 cups (10 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, cook beef and sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain and set aside. In a large bowl, combine biscuit mix and water to form a soft dough.
