After my husband and I got married, this biscuit pizza solved the what’s-for-dinner problem. As our family grew, I just made bigger and bigger batches. It never disappoints!—Pat Crane, Pine City, New York

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) pizza sauce, divided
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 3 cups biscuit/baking mix
  • 1-1/4 cups 2% milk
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 plum tomato, chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink, 8-10 minutes, breaking into crumbles; drain. Stir in 1 can pizza sauce and oregano. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until slightly thickened, 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
  2. In a large bowl, combine biscuit mix, milk and egg; stir just until moistened. Spread half the batter onto bottom of a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Spread with remaining pizza sauce. Top with mozzarella cheese, mushrooms, pepper, onion and beef mixture. Spoon remaining batter over top; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  3. Bake, uncovered, until golden brown, 20-25 minutes. Sprinkle with tomato. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
