Bubble-Up Pizza Casserole



When I was younger, my mom made this fun recipe from a Pampered Chef cookbook. I enjoyed it so much, and I recently remembered it, so I just had to make it.

I would describe it as really easy and quick deep-dish pizza, but then it has this excellent pull-apart quality that is completely irresistible.

We always seemed to put in some zucchini from the garden, and I think that's part of why I like it so much. But put in whatever you like and/or have on hand. This recipe is so easy and fun! (Very kid-friendly, too.)


Bubble-Up Pizza Casserole
PRINTABLE RECIPE

Ingredients:
2 cans pre-made buttermilk biscuits
3/4 - 1 c. pizza or pasta sauce
mozzarella cheese
pizza toppings of your choice

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350 and grease a 9x13" casserole pan.
Tear or cut the biscuits into fourths and place in a mixing bowl. (I like to use the "flaky biscuits.) Toss with about 3/4 of the pizza or pasta sauce - we just used the pasta sauce we keep on hand. Mix in a handful of cheese along with toppings of your choice. We used green pepper, zucchini (sliced thinly), and pepperoni. Season with salt and pepper. Press very lightly into the prepared pan and cover with remaining sauce and sprinkle with mozzarella.
Bake for 20 - 30 minutes, until the biscuits in the middle are cooked through. (I just take a fork and twirl it in the center and pull out a bit of biscuit to test. When it's fluffy, the casserole is ready.)

  3. Hi I will definitely make this for my friends in Massachusetts when I go. I just have one question probably a stupid one but.... it looks to me like you used a heavy skillet? can a glass dish be used or an aluminum pan?

    1. Not a stupid question at all. A regular 9x13" pan -- either glass or aluminum -- will work great. Hope you love it as much as I do!

  4. Ok I feel a bit dumb, but in your directions I was a bit confused. Do I mix the biscuit pieces with the sauce then spread them in the pan and top with cheese+ or do I mix the cheese in with the biscuit pieces and sauce then put into a pan??

    1. Not a dumb question at all. I like to do both -- a little bit mixed in and a good layer on the top. You could certainly skip the cheese mixed in, but there should definitely be cheese on top. Hope that helps. And thanks for your comment!
