5 cups filling


  • 1 pound lean ground beef or ground turkey

  • 1 cup chopped onion

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 ½ cup frozen peas and carrots or frozen mixed vegetables

  • 1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes, undrained

  • 1 13.8 ounce pkg. refrigerated pizza dough

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. In an oven-safe 3- to 4-qt pot cook ground meat and onion about 8 minutes or until meat is browned and onion is tender. Drain off fat.

  2. Stir chili powder, salt, and pepper into meat mixture in pot. Add frozen vegetables and tomatoes. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes or until most of liquid is evaporated.

  3. Meanwhile, unroll pizza dough; cut into 1-inch strips. Arrange strips on top of the meat mixture in pot, trimming to fit.* If desired, brush dough with lightly beaten egg.

  4. Place pot in oven. Bake, uncovered, 15 to 20 minutes or until golden.


If desired, arrange strips in a lattice pattern on a sheet of waxed paper. Use the pot lid as a guide to trim the lattice to size. Invert the lattice onto the beef mixture. Any leftover pizza dough can be baked and served as bread sticks.

To Make Ahead

Prepare as directed through Step 2. Place filling in an airtight container; cool slightly. Cover and refrigerate up to three days. To serve, return filling to pot. Cook, covered over medium heat until heated through, stirring occasionally. Continue as directed in Steps 3 and 4.
