Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 12-inch pizza pan with cooking spray and place it on a large baking sheet with sides.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper, mushrooms and basil; cook, stirring, until softened, about 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine beef, garlic, breadcrumbs, milk and salt in a large bowl. Mix well.

  • Transfer the meat mixture to the prepared pan. With dampened hands, pat into a 10-inch circle. Top with marinara sauce. Spoon the vegetable mixture over the sauce and sprinkle with cheese.

  • Bake until the meat is browned and the cheese has melted, about 30 minutes. Drain off any fat. Cut into wedges and serve.


Equipment: Use a perforated pizza pan so excess fat drips away.
