Step 1: Get the Casserole Base Ready

Brown the ground beef and Italian sausage in a large pan over medium heat until they are well done.
Add the minced garlic and chopped onions, and sauté until the onions become transparent.
Add the crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, dried basil, dried oregano, and salt & pepper after adding the pepperoni slices.
Allow the mixture to simmer for 15 to 20 minutes so that the flavors may combine.
Creating the Crust in Step Two

Almond flour, grated Parmesan cheese, eggs, melted butter, baking powder, and a dash of salt should all be combined in a mixing dish.
Stir to make a dough.
To make a thick crust for our pizza masterpiece, press the dough evenly onto the bottom of a casserole dish that has been buttered.
Stacking the Casserole in Step Three

Evenly distribute the cooked meat and tomato sauce mixture over the crust.
A coating of gooey, delicious mozzarella cheese will be created when it is sprinkled over the top.

To add a pop of color and variation, place sliced black olives, bell peppers, mushrooms, and more pepperoni artistically on top of the cheese layer.
