This stuffed pizza is a real treat—and the frozen bread dough makes it a snap to prepare as well.—Carol Gillespie, Chambersburg, Pennsylvania


  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 small green pepper, chopped
  • 2 loaves (1 pound each) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 4 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 18 slices pepperoni
  • 1 can (4 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pizza sauce


  1. In a large skillet, brown ground beef, onion and green pepper until meat is no longer pink; drain.
  2. Meanwhile, divide one loaf of bread dough in half. Press over the bottom and up the sides of two 9-in. greased pie plates. Sprinkle each pie with 1-1/2 cups mozzarella cheese. Divide beef mixture and spoon over cheese. Top with pepperoni and mushrooms.
  3. Divide remaining loaf of bread; form into two 10-in. circles. Cover each pie with dough; crimp edges to seal.
  4. Spread half of the pizza sauce onto each pie. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake at 400° for 25-30 minutes.
