Quick Deep Dish Pizza

Quick Deep Dish Pizza

I needed something fast and was craving pizza, but  pizza delivery is only a dream for me.  I didn’t have time to make pizza crust, but I had some refrigerated bread stick dough and thought, why not make pizza with that.  If you have refrigerated pizza dough, or time to make your own that would be just dandy.  I threw together a green salad and had supper in well under an hour, which is important when I have boys who think they are starving from the moment I step foot in the kitchen.  No fancy ingredients here, just what I had in the pantry and fridge, you can make this work with whatever you have on hand.  I love these kind of recipes and I think you will like it too.

Quick Deep Dish Pizza


1 1/2 pounds ground beef

1  10 3/4  oz can condensed tomato soup

1 11 oz can refrigerated bread sticks

2 cups mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup sliced black olives

4 green onions, chopped

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic

1/2 teaspoon basil

1/2 teaspoon oregano

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Cooking Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.  Add ground beef to a skillet and season with salt and pepper.  Cook, stirring often, until ground beef is well browned.  Drain excess grease and add tomato soup, undiluted, and seasonings, stirring until well combined; remove from heat.  Remove bread sticks from can, unroll  and press seams together to form crust  into bottom of a 9″ x 13″ baking dish (or equivalent).  Pour meat mixture over crust, top with mozzarella cheese, green onions and olives.  Bake for 30 minutes or until crust is baked through and crispy on the bottom.  Cool for two or three minutes in pan before cutting and serving.  So easy and delicious!
