Sauce Tip

Use a thick pizza sauce or drain a looser pizza sauce for best results.


Preheat oven to 400°. Coat a 7×11-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.

Brown sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat, breaking up the meat with a spoon until no longer pink and cooked through. Transfer sausage to a colander to drain, discarding all but 1 Tbsp. drippings from skillet.

Sauté mushrooms in drippings until softened, 35 minutes. Stir in sausage, pizza sauce, and olives until heated through, 12 minutes; transfer to prepared baking dish.

Top sausage mixture with mozzarella and provolone; unroll crescent dough sheet (if using crescent roll dough, carefully unroll sheet without separating triangles); arrange over cheese. Top crust with Parmesan.

Bake casserole until Parmesan and crust are browned, 1518 minutes; let cool 510 minutes before serving.
