Beef Nacho Casserole
Recipe from 
Servings: 8 servings
Prep Time: 10 mins
Total Time: 50 mins
     tablespoons  olive oil
    1/2  pound  pre-sliced sweet peppers (about 1/2-inch-wide strips)
     pound  lean ground beef
    1/2  teaspoon  garlic salt
     tubes (10 ounces each)  refrigerated pizza dough
     jar (16 ounces)  medium-hot salsa
     cups  shredded taco-cheese blend
     can (2.2 ounces)  sliced black olives, drained (about 1/4 cup)
     large  scallions, trimmed and sliced
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Coat 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add peppers, ground beef and garlic salt; cook, stirring to break up clumps of beef, until the peppers are soft and beef is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Drain off any excess fat from skillet.
Remove pizza dough from tubes. Cut the dough crosswise into 1/2-inch-wide slices, then cut each slice into quarters.
In large bowl, toss together dough pieces and salsa. Add cooked meat mixture, 2 cups of the taco-cheese blend and olives. Scrape mixture into baking dish. Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup taco-cheese blend over the top.
Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Sprinkle scallions evenly over the top. Bake an additional 5 minutes.
