This was one of those recipes I found while browsing Pintrest. It sounded interesting and because pizza is one of our favorite meals in our house, I thought I would give it a try. This was an instant hit. I knew my husband really liked it because he ate the leftovers, which is something he rarely does. Another hint that I had hit upon something amazing was just the next week, he asked when we were going to have it again.
Yes folks, I had on my hands a "Pin Win". This is a great recipe because it doesn't really take a whole lot to prep and it's a fun way for the little ones to eat one of their favorite food. You can also reduce the fat by using reduced-fat biscuits and turkey pepperoni, or even a fully veggie one. Go ahead, make your favorite pizza...in casserole form!
Bubble Up Pizza
- 2 cans of canned biscuits (16 biscuits in total)
- 1 (15 oz) jar spaghetti/pizza sauce
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- Your favorite pizza toppings (pepperoni, sausage, black olives, mushrooms, onions, peppers, etc.)
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x13" baking dish.
- Cut up biscuits into fourths. Place in a large bowl. Add in the sauce, 1 cup cheese, and toppings. Stir until mixed well. Place mixture into baking dish.
- Bake for 30 minutes, or until bubbly. Top with remaining cheese and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, until cheese is melted and starting to bubble.
As I said before, this is a huge hit around here. We have it once a month, at least! There's not really much to it. One thing is that you can either use those baby pepperonis that they have, or, what I like to do, is cut the pepperoni in half. I find that doing this helps distribute the pepperoni more evenly and is more managable to eat.
If there are people that like different toppings, then you can just top the additional toppings before you put the cheese on, like you see with the black olives in the picture above.
