  • 2 cups precooked Ground Beef (93% lean or leaner)
  • 1 cup diced red onion
  • 1 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup shredded fresh russet (baking) or sweet potatoes
  • 1 pound refrigerated whole wheat pizza dough
  • 4 hard-cooked eggs, peeled
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Ketchup, hot sauce, salsa, sour cream (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add onion, bell pepper and salt; cook 3 minutes or until vegetables are tender and begin to brown. Add beef and potatoes; cook 3 minutes or until potatoes are soft. Set aside to cool.<

    Cook's Tip: You may substitute 12 ounces precooked shredded beef for ground beef.

  2. On lightly floured surface, roll out pizza dough into 14 x 10-inch rectangle. Top dough with beef mixture, leaving 1/4-inch border. Place hard-cooked eggs along short side of rectangle. Working from short side, tightly roll up dough, jelly roll-style; pinching seams and edges to seal.
  3. Transfer bread to parchment-lined shallow-rimmed baking sheet. Brush with beaten egg; sprinkle with cheese. Bake in 350°F oven 40 to 50 minutes or until the bread is golden brown. Transfer bread to cutting board; let stand 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with ketchup, hot sauce, salsa and sour cream, as desired.
