  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 12x8- or 11x7-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef, bell pepper and onion over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is browned; drain. Add frozen corn, beans, tomato sauce, 1 cup of the barbecue sauce, the Worcestershire sauce and salt; reduce heat to medium. Simmer 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until heated through. Transfer mixture to baking dish.
  • 3
    Remove dough from can, and separate into 6 rounds (do not unroll dough). Cut each dough round into 6 pieces; arrange dough evenly on top of hot beef mixture.
  • 4
    Bake 22 to 25 minutes or until dough is baked through and deep golden brown. Top with cheese; bake 2 to 4 minutes or until cheese is melted. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Drizzle with remaining 1/4 cup barbecue sauce before serving.

Expert Tips

  • When cutting dough rounds into 6 pieces, some piece sizes will vary. Just make sure to evenly place dough pieces on top of the beef mixture for best results during baking.
  • Barbecue sauce varies in sweetness and spiciness, so feel free to use your favorite!
  • Try swapping pepper Jack or Monterey Jack cheese for the cheddar cheese!
  • Top with chopped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley before serving, if desired.
