Gramma CAT's Quick 'N Easy Pizza Casserole
This dish goes very well when you are in a hurry and not wanting to make anything too fancy. My kids and grandkids love it, and even my significant other enjoys it. You can add other ingredients like pepperoni and black olives if you want or eliminate some if your family doesn't care for them.

1Roll out 1 tube of the crescent rolls and pinch the seams together in a 9 X 13 baking pan. Pre-bake for about 5 minutes at 375 degrees.
2Brown the ground beef, onion, and green bell pepper. Season with a little salt and ground black pepper. Drain. Place the meat mixture over the pre-baked crescent rolls.
