Easy Sloppy Joe Pizza....being "too tired to cook" never tasted so good!

Here's a super easy recipe. My Sloppy Joe Pizza won't win any nutritional awards but the kids absolutely beg for it. My family inhales this, and it is my stand-by "no nutritional content" weeknight dinner when I am too pooped to make anything else!

So here's what you'll need:

2 cans refrigerator cresent rolls OR refrigerator biscuits
1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce (We love Sweet Baby Rays Honey BBQ)

1 can of corn
1-1/2 lbs ground beef
shredded cheese (I've used monterey jack, colby or cheddar)

If using cresent rolls, you unroll the triangles of dough onto a jelly roll pan and arrange the pieces to fit together so they create a "solid" crust and squeeze the seams together. If using biscuits, separate each biscuit and slice in half lengthwise so they are half as thick. Position biscuits on jelly roll pan or cookie sheet.  Go ahead and brown the beef (1-1/2 lbs) and when it's done add your favorite BBQ sauce (we use pretty much the whole bottle)and a little water (Maybe 1/4-1/2 cup) just so it's not too thick or dry. Then add a can of drained corn. Mix well and spread over unbaked crust or spoon onto each uncooked biscuit. . Top with shredded cheese and bake at 375 for 30 minutes or so, until the crust is golden and cooked through.  
You can also place each uncooked biscuit in the cups of a greased muffin tin, shaping to create a little cup and making sure the dough isn't too thick. Then fill the cup with the filling and top with cheese. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes otr until the crust is done and golden.  My kids REALLY love the BBQ cups!

I have had people ask if this would work on regular pizza dough. It would work, but the cresent rolls or biscuits add a special flakey, buttery crust which makes this dish so wonderful.

I hope your family loves this as much as my family does!

Have a perfectly wonderful day,
