1 pound ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped green sweet pepper
1 15 1/2 oz jar pizza sauce
1/2 of a 3 1/2 oz package sliced pepperoni, halved
1 2 oz can mushroom stems, and pieces, drained
1 teaspoon fennel seeds, crushed
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1/2 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1 cup all purpose flour
1 6 oz package thinly sliced mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
In a large skillet cook ground meat, onion and sweet pepper until meat is brown and vegetables are tender. Drain off fat. Stir in pizza sauce, pepperoni, mushrooms, fennel seeds, oregano and basil. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, for topping, in a small bowl combine eggs, milk and oil. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 1 minute. Add flour; beat about 1 minute more or until smooth.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease, the sides of a 3 quart rectangular baking dish. Spoon meat mixture into prepared dish. Arrange mozzarella cheese slices over meat mixture. Pour topping over cheese slices, covering completely. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until topping is puffed and golden brown. Serve immediately. Makes 8 servings.
