WW Pizza Casserole

This is another good ol' Weight Watchers recipe someone came up with years ago but its really good and a bit healthier alternative to real pizza. This calls for a refrigerated pizza dough but I sometimes make it with homemade dough- which is even more delicious. We have changed it up alot too it- sometimes we pull the dough thin onto a cookie sheet, instead of the more deep dish version you get in a 9 x 13 pan. We have also pulled it thin and then rolled it up to get a sort of calzone type which is fun. Also, P loves to add turkey peperonni to it. I ususally cut the slices in half and add them to the meat with the sauce to simmer.

1 lb lean ground beef
15 oz can tomato sauce (I buy Classico fire roasted tomato which is too big but usually one jar will have enough to make two pizzas and it keeps in the fridge for a while)
10 oz refrigerated pizza dough
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella

Season and brown the meat. Drain. Return meat to pan and add sauce. Heat until simmering. spray 9x13 dish with cooking spray and press dough into bottom of pan and up the sides (to creat a crust around the edge). Top with meat mixture. Bake at 425 for 12 minutes. Pull out of oven and top with cheese. Then bake for 5-7 minutes longer, until cheese starts to brown.
