homemade Pizza


  • 1 pound Ground Beef (93% lean or leaner) 
  • 1 small onion, chopped or sliced thin 
  • 1 small green or red bell pepper, chopped 
  • 1 package thick prebaked pizza crust (12-inch) 
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Salt & pepper


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400°F. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add Ground Beef; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into small crumbles and stirring occasionally. Remove drippings. 
  2. Add onion and bell pepper; cook until vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove from skillet with slotted spoon; season with salt and pepper.  
  3. Place pizza crust on baking sheet. Top with beef mixture, then cheese. Bake in 400°F oven 8 to 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

    Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Ground Beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness.
