I love trying a new twist on an old favorite and this is just that.  Thanks to Real Mom Kitchen, I now have a new main dish in my arsenal.  This was so flavorful and easy, which makes it a perfect weeknight dinner idea.  It is also easy to tweak it to your taste with different pizza toppings. Thanks, Real Mom Kitchen!


1/2 cup diced onion

1/2 lb. ground beef

1/2 lb. Italian sausage

1/8 tsp. ground red pepper

1 tsp. Italian seasoning

1 cup pizza sauce

1 tube crescent roll dough

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and spray a 9×13” baking dish with non-stick spray.  Cook the onion, beef and sauce in a skillet over medium heat until the meat is cooked through.

Add the red pepper, Italian seasoning, and sauce to the meat mixture.  Reduce heat and allow the mixture to simmer for 10 minutes.



Line the bottom of your prepared pan with the crescent roll dough.  Press to seal seams.  Sprinkle 1/4 cup of the grated parmesan over the dough.  Next, spread the meat mixture over this.  Top it off with the mozzarella and the remaining parmesan. 


Bake at 400 for 15 to 20 minutes or until the top is golden brown.  Serves 4-6 and goes great with a fresh tossed salad.
