Try this for a lighter version of homemade deep-dish pizza that's packed with flavor, minus the belly-busting guilt. Skinny Pizza Casserole is a super option for anyone watching their waistline.

What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 (9.4-ounce) package precooked turkey sausage, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (13.8-ounce) can refrigerated pizza dough
  • 1 (8-ounce) package low-fat mozzarella cheese (12 slices)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degree F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil over high heat; add sausage, and mushrooms, and cook 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce, oregano, garlic powder, salt, and pepper; cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until heated through.
  3. Meanwhile, unroll pizza dough and press into bottom and halfway up sides of prepared baking dish. Line bottom of crust with 6 slices mozzarella cheese. Top with meat mixture.
  4. Bake uncovered 12 minutes. Top with remaining cheese slices and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake 5 minutes, or until crust is browned and cheese is melted. Let sit 2 to 3 minutes, then slice and serve.

You can go to and plug in the recipe info and it will calculate the nutrition info for you.

I agree they should have the nutricional and calorie information on this, but how low in calories is this with double cheese? Cheese on botton and top? NOT!

I don't think this is skinnier than a veggie pizza - instead of the turkey sausage.

How Skinny is this recipe. Where is the Nutrition Information

I heartily agree with all of the previous posts. Other sites provide not only calorie count, but also NI as regards sodium, cholesterol, fat, carbs, fiber, etc., and it would be such a huge help if that was provided on your site also.

Hi everyone! I too get frustrated that nutritional information is not posted, so I figured it out myself based on six portion servings. I made my calculations using Jimmy Dean turkey crumbles, Pillsbury regular pizza dough, and a 8 oz package of part skim shredded mozzarella cheese. The stats are about 400 calories (395.8) per serving. I am not an "official" on any of this, but I often calculate the stats for myself. I hope this helps someone!

In this day and age nutrition is one of everyones top concerns. Nutritional content of your recipes would be very helpful and appreciated.

I agree that we need to read the nutritional information. Can you add that to the recipes, please?

I so agree. With such a large percentage of the U.S. population overweight or on some kind of restricted diet , nutritional information is a MUST.

Sound great, but I agree 100%, We NEED info. Calories, fat, sodium, fiber, protien, you get the picture. I do not want to sabatoge this eating plan I'm on. Its hard enough to loose the weight, but on a extremely tight grocery budget I don't want to buy and make something I can't afford calorie wise. Thank a bunch for possibly considering this. It would definetly make this website much more complete.

If you advertise recipes as a skinny recipe then you should publish the carb and calorie counts for those of us that need to count them or the recipe is worthlless to us. Thank you, watch you every day on Channel 12 Mankato MN
