Upside-down Pizza

2 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped mushrooms
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 lbs ground turkey
2 (15 oz) can Italian-style tomato sauce
2 tsp dried basil
1 cup chopped pepperoni
1 tsp pepper
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 (13.8 oz) pkg prepared pizza dough

1. Heat the oven to 400 °. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat. Add the onion, mushrooms and garlic and cook stirring frequently, until the onions begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Add the turkey and continue to cook and stir, breaking the meat into small pieces, until it is no longer pink, about 8 minutes.
2. Stir in the tomato sauce, basil and pepperoni and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Add the pepper, then transfer the mixture to a 9x13 casserole dish.
3. Scatter the cheese on top and later on the pizza dough. Bake the casserole until the dough is golden, about 20 minutes. To serve, spoon out portions with a large serving utensil.

Kind of fun and different! I made a full recipe but made it in 2 pans so I could freeze one. And even with one 8x8 we still had some leftovers. And I used beef instead of turkey and I also used a big can of pasta sauce instead of the tomato sauce and it was pretty tasty!
