  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1-1/4 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 3-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon salt

1 serving (1 piece) equals 348 calories, 14 g fat (5 g saturated fat), 31 mg cholesterol, 1,139 mg sodium, 37 g carbohydrate, 3 g fiber, 18 g protein.

Directions

  1. For crust, dissolve sugar and yeast in water; set aside. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Stir in yeast mixture and oil; mix until dough forms a ball. Knead on a lightly floured surface 6-8 minutes or until smooth. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile, for filling, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain and cool. Stir in the olives, mushrooms, spinach and cheese; set aside.
  3. Punch dough down. Divide into two pieces, one slightly larger than the other. Roll out the larger piece into a 15-in. circle. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 12-in. deep-dish pizza pan. Cover with meat mixture.
  4. Roll out remaining dough into a 12-in. circle; place over meat mixture. Crimp edges of crusts together to seal; gently press top crust onto meat filling. Cut a 1-in. slit in center of crust. Spread spaghetti sauce over top crust.
  5. Bake at 475° for 35-40 minutes or until lightly browned. Yield: 10-12 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 19, 2011

Do not bake @ 475! The top crust is brown before the rest of it has time to bake. I turned it down to 375. I also had to make some variation in the amount of ingredients. You have to figure out what works. I wasn't able to put 4C. of spaghetti sauce on top.
