'Pizza' Shepherd's Pie

Rated as 4.26 out of 5 Stars

"Frozen pizza dough often comes in two 1-pound balls, and you need only 3/4 pound for this recipe. Either freeze the rest, or cut off a bit, pat it out, sprinkle with parmesan and olive oil, and bake it alongside the pizza."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Cook and stir beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally and breaking up lumps, until no longer pink, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain beef and return to skillet.
  3. Add tomatoes and black pepper to beef; bring to a simmer and cook until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Spoon mixture into a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate. Scatter mozzarella cheese over the top. Stretch pizza dough over top with your hands, pressing it onto the edge of the pie plate.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until crust is golden brown, about 30 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

It was just so-so. I found it bland. If I try it again, I will use less crust because it was very "bready" and will spice it up.

Made this for dinner in a glass oblong dish. Used non-frozen pizza dough, but next time will roll the dough thinner. Added extra garlic and basil to the meat. Serves 8 I would say with a sala...
