Pizza Casserole

Rich and gooey, this deep-dish pizza-flavor casserole puffs up as it bakes. It's as much fun to make as it is to eat a surefire bet for kids.

PREP TIME : 30 minutes                       SERVINGS 8
 1-1/2        pounds ground beef
1               onion, chopped (1 cup)
1               green sweet pepper, chopped (1 cup)
1               garlic, minced
11-1/2      ounce package spaghetti sauce mix
1/2           teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1              15 ounce can tomato sauce
1/2           cup water
1              cup milk or  chicken broth
2              eggs
1              tablespoon vegetable oil
1              cup all-purpose flour
1/2           teaspoon salt
1              cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 ounces)
1/4           cup grated Parmesan cheese
Pepperoni slices (optional)

1 .  Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In an extra-large skillet, cook ground beef over medium heat until brown; drain off fat. Stir onion, sweet pepper, garlic, dry spaghetti sauce mix, and oregano into meat. Add tomato sauce and the water. Cook and stir until boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

2 .  Meanwhile, in a medium mixing bowl, beat milk, eggs, and oil with an electric mixer on medium speed for 1 minute. Add flour and salt; beat for 2 minutes more.

3.  Transfer hot beef mixture to an ungreased 3-quart rectangular baking dish. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Pour egg mixture evenly over top. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese; top with pepperoni slices (if desired).

Bake, uncovered, for 25 to 30 minutes or until puffed and golden. Serve immediately.
