A friend gave this recipe to me at my wedding shower. I realized then and there that I'd better learn how to cook! My husband loves these hand-held pizzas.—Laronda Warrick, Parker, Kansas

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

In a large skillet, cook the beef, onion, green pepper and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain and set aside.
In a saucepan, bring tomato sauce and Italian seasoning to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir 1/2 cup into the meat mixture; keep remaining sauce warm.
Unroll pizza crust onto a floured surface. Roll into a 12-in. square; cut into four squares. Spread cream cheese over each to within 1/2 in. of edges. Top with meat mixture. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese, mushrooms and olives.
