Cheeseburger Pizza Casserole

It's Saturday night and I'm at a loss for our menu, he wants beef, I want spice and everyone is hungry. What do I have onhand that will suffice for an easy weekend dinner?

Ready made pizza dough....check!
Ground beef....check!

I think it'll be a Cheeseburger Pizza Casserole!

Refrigerated pizza dough
1 lb ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 package montreal steak seasoning
1 Tb minced garlic or a couple of cloves chopped
1 4 oz. can of chopped green chilis

Cheese Topping:
1/2 stick of butter (4Tb)
2 Tb flour
1/2 cup of milk
2 cups shredded cheese

Preheat the oven to 350. Lightly oil a casserole dish.

In a skillet, brown ground beef and drain. In same skillet, saute onion and garlic.
In a large bowl, mix together ground beef, onion and garlic, mushroom soup, & steak seasoning.

To make the cheese topping:
in a small saucepan, melt butter and mix in flour until smooth. Add milk and stir well. Mix in cheese and stir until melted and bubbly.

Unroll pizza dough line the bottom of casserole dish. Pour ground beef mixture and spread evenly on the dough. Pour the melted cheese over the ground beef until the beef is evenly covered.

Bake for at least 25 minutes or until cheese is starting to brown. Let it cool for at least 15 minutes. YUM!
