Pizza Bake

While I have only recently began to post recipes with poultry, I have yet to post one with beef as I just have not taken to eating mammals just yet, but I made this dish for a potluck the other evening with some modifications and just had to share it here as it is quite good!

Pizza Bake
1 lb ground beef(I used ground turkey and got no complaints!)
2 tubes refrigerated buttermilk biscuits( I used 1-1/2 grands)
1 can/jar pizza sauce(15 ounces)
1 cup chopped green pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 pkg sliced pepperoni(3-1/2 oz, I have yet to find a veggie or poultry sub)
1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
In skillet cook beef or turkey over medium heat until no longer pink. Meanwhile, quarter the biscuits; place in greased shallow 3-qt baking dish. Top with pizza sauce. Drain meat, sprinkle over biscuits and sauce. Layer with green pepper, onion, pepperoni and cheeses. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until cheese is melted. Let stand for 5-10 minutes before serving.
This is a hit with young and old alike! Great for potlucks or company.
