  • 1 pound ground uncooked bulk Italian sausage

  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 1 cup chopped onion

  • 1 medium red or green bell pepper, chopped

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 15 ounce can pizza sauce

  • 1 8 ounce can pizza sauce

  • ½ 3 ounce pkg. sliced pepperoni (about 24 pepperoni slices)

  • 1 2.25 ounce can sliced pitted black olives, drained

  • 2 cup shredded Italian cheese blend (8 oz.)

  • 1 32 ounce pkg. frozen fried potato nuggets


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Grease a 3-qt. rectangular baking dish. In an extra-large skillet cook the first five ingredients (through garlic) over medium until beef is browned. Drain off fat.

  2. Spoon beef mixture into the prepared baking dish, spreading evenly. Spoon pizza sauce over beef mixture. Top with pepperoni, olives, and half of the cheese. Top with potato nuggets.

  3. Bake, uncovered, 30 to 35 minutes or until potatoes are browned, sprinkling with the remaining cheese and, if desired, additional pepperoni and sliced black olives the last 10 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
