Featured Recipe of the Month: Venison Deep Dish Pizza

Feeds eight.

Ingredients:

2 lbs. ground venison
2 tbs. garlic powder
1 tbs. seasoned salt
2 tbs. Italian seasoning
¼ cup olive oil
1 cup water
3 ¾ cups Bisquick
1 small can mushrooms (or other pizza toppings)
1 large jar of pizza or spaghetti sauce
¾ cup parmesan cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
 
Preparation:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 11 X 13” glass pan with olive oil to prevent sticking.

Brown venison over medium-high heat, add 1 tbs. seasoned salt, 1 tbs. garlic powder, and 1 tbs. Italian seasoning. Cook until all venison has turned brown (about 7-10 minutes). Remove from heat.

In a medium bowl, mix Bisquick, water, remaining garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Mix until consistency of pizza dough. Split into halves and place the first half in greased pan, spreading evenly over the bottom.

Add 1 lb. (about ½ of the ground venison), followed by ½ of the pizza sauce, ½ can of mushrooms (or other pizza toppings), ½ of both cheeses on top.

Take other half of the dough and spread out on counter. Place on top of the cheese layer, and repeat all layers.

Place in oven and cook for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is golden brown.
