INGREDIENTS:

1 lb lean ground beef
2 oz pepperoni, chopped
1/3 cup bread crumbs, dry
1 egg
1/2 tsp oregano leaves
1/4 tsp salt
8 oz tomato sauce
8 oz mushroom
1/4 cup ripe olives, pitted, sliced
1 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded

PREPARATION:

Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Mix the meats, bread crumbs, egg, oregano leaves, salt and half of the tomato sauce. Press the mixture evenly against the bottom and sides of an ungreased 10-inch pie pan.
Sprinkle the mushrooms and olives in the meat line pan then pour the remaining tomato sauce over the vegetables. Bake uncovered for 25 minutes. The pepperoni gives a red-flecked appearance to the meat.
Sprinkle the pie with the shredded cheese and bake an additional 5 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes then cut into 6 wedges.
