Weight Watcher’s Deep Dish Pizza Casserole comes together in under 30 minutes. The crust is store bought, so you don’t have to wait for it to rise and kneed the dough, and it takes under 10 minutes to brown the ground beef. Browning the ground beef is probably the hardest part. Prep all your ingredients while the ground beef is browning and you’re pretty much done. Super easy and you can use whatever your favorite toppings are. I just added a couple slices of pepperoni to mine and garnished the pizza with some parmesan cheese and some herbs. So good!
I didn’t have any Italian Style stewed tomatoes, so what I did was use an 8 oz can of no-salt added tomato sauce, some italian seasoning, oregano, and crushed red pepper. Turned out marvelous!
