Recipe for Open-Face Pizza Sandwiches


    Open-Face Pizza Sandwiches

    2 cups biscuit mix
    1/2 cup cold water
    1 pound ground beef
    1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    1/4 cup chopped onion
    2 tablespoons chopped green bell pepper
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
    1/8 teaspoon pepper
    12 ounces tomato paste
    2 to 3 tomatoes, thinly sliced
    8 slices mozzarella cheese, each
       about 4 inches square, cut
        diagonally into halves

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

    Grease cookie sheet. Mix biscuit mix and water until soft dough forms; beat vigorously 20 strokes. Divide dough into halves. Pat each half into a 16 x 4-inch rectangle on a cookie sheet with floured hands. Bake until light brown, 8 to 10 minutes.

    Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F.

    Mix ground beef, Parmesan cheese, onion, green pepper, salt, oregano, pepper and tomato paste; spread over rectangles. Bake until beef is done, 20 to 25 minutes.

    Arrange tomatoes down center of each rectangle, overlapping edges; layer mozzarella cheese slices over tomatoes. Bake until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes longer.

    Serves 6.
