It was ok...not enough spice so this would be a good recipe to play with. I would put half the beef mixture down then some pepperoni then the other half of the meat mixture. You MIX the first 7 ingredients then CRUMBLE the hamburger over the mixed ingredients.

Dish was okay. Nothing to rave about. Kind of bland.
