Upside-Down Pizza Casserole



  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 c. onion, chopped
  • 1 c. green pepper, chopped
  • 15-oz. can pizza sauce
  • 1/2 c. sliced pepperoni, chopped
  • 1/2 t. Italian seasoning
  • 6-oz. pkg. thinly sliced mozzarella cheese
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1 T. oil
  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese

To make the filling, in a skillet over medium heat, brown your beef, onion and green pepper. Drain off the excess fat. Stir in the pizza sauce, pepperoni and Italian seasoning. Simmer over low heat for about 10 minutes.

Spoon the beef mixture into a greased 13″x9″ baking pan.

Place mozzarella cheese slices over the hot beef mixture.

For the batter topping, combine eggs, milk and oil in a bowl and whisk for one minute. Add the flour, salt and Parmesan cheese, and stir until smooth.

Pour the Batter Topping over the casserole. Sprinkle with more Parmesan cheese.

Bake uncovered at 400 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes, until puffed and golden.
