1 pound ground round
1 (15-ounce) can chunky Italian-style tomato sauce
Cooking spray
1 (10-ounce) can refrigerated pizza crust dough
6 (1-ounce) slices part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided


Cook meat in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring until it crumbles. Drain, if necessary and return to skillet. Add tomato sauce, and cook until heated.

While meat cooks, coat a 13- x 9- x 2-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Unroll pizza crust dough, and press into bottom and halfway up sides of baking dish. Line bottom of pizza crust with 3 slices mozzarella cheese. Top with meat mixture.

Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 12 minutes. Top with remaining 3 cheese slices, and bake 5 additional minutes or until crust is browned and cheese melts. Cool 5 minutes before serving.
