Stuffed Pizza Casserole



I love a good pizza and well, who doesn't? I think Chicago has the BEST pizza and yes, I'm a little biased since I'm from Chicago, but I do think we have the best pizza. Sorry, New York! :)
One of my favorite pizza's is Giordano's stuffed pizza. A deep dish pizza filled with toppings and cheese with another layer of crust on top and more sauce and cheese? Oh, Yes! I decided to create my own stuffed pizza at home but in casserole form. It was super easy and BEYOND good! You have got to try it for yourself and I'm sure you will agree!

Stuffed Pizza Casserole
Serves 8

Ingredients
2 cans refrigerated pizza dough, divided
3 cups shredded cheese, divided (I used Sargento Pizza Blend)
1 1/2 cups pizza sauce, divided
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
Toppings of your choice (I used crumbled italian sausage and pepperoni)


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. 

Meanwhile, unroll 1 pizza dough, press into bottom and halfway up sides of prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with 1 cup cheese, top with 3/4 cup pizza sauce, and sprinkle pizza toppings evenly over sauce, add 1 more cup cheese. 

Unroll and place second pizza dough on top. Press bottom and top crust edges together to seal. Make a few small slits in top crust. Bake 15 minutes.

Remove from oven, pour remaining pizza sauce over crust and sprinkle with parmesan and remaining pizza cheese. Bake an additional 8 to 10 minutes, or until crust is browned. Let sit for 5 minutes before cutting. Enjoy!
