Upside-Down Pizza Casserole

Yay! I finally have a picture!!

1 1/2lbs ground beef
1 15-oz can Italian-style tomato sauce
1 4oz can sliced mushrooms, drained
1/4 cup sliced pitted black olives (optional)
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
15-20 slices pepperoni
1 12-oz pkg refrigerated biscuits (10)
basil (optional)

Preheat oven to 400. In large skillet, cook meat over medium heat until brown. Drain off fat. Stir in tomato sauce, mushrooms, and olives; heat through. Transfer mixture to an ungreased 2-qt baking dish. Cover with pepperoni slices. Sprinkle with 1 cup of the cheese.

Flatten each biscuit slightly with your hands. Arrange the biscuits on top of meat mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and, if desired, basil.

Bake, uncovered, for 15 to 17 minutes or until mixture is heated through and biscuits are golden. Makes 5 servings.

*I could only find huge biscuits, so only 4 would fit on mine, and they took longer to bake. I actually had to flip them over to cook the under part because they were still doughy.
*This recipe is SO easy and the kids LOVED it!!
