After a fun filled weekend with the kids, I was in the mood for something simple for dinner last night. Those delicious tubes of biscuits were on sale at the grocery store and I knew exactly what I wanted to make with them….Bubble Pizza. I know it’s not exactly gourmet, but it tastes like a deep dish pizza, and I was craving that rich crust with the nice crisp edges and gooey cheese. Of course, I also used a pizza sauce that had extra vegetables in it, so I did have a little trick up my sleeve. ;-) Another fun part about this meal is that the kids can practically do all of the work for you! I had one adding biscuits to the bowl, another stirring in the sauce, and another “cheese specialist”. All I had to do was turn on the oven!
You can get creative with this recipe and use whatever toppings you like, but my house was pretty set on pepperoni!
- 1 can Grands buttermilk biscuits, cut into 8 pieces each.
- 1 – 15 ounce jar of pizza sauce (I use an added vegetable one)
- 28 pepperoni slices (or as many as you would like to put on or eat while you make it)
- 3 cups shredded pizza blend cheese (usually a mix of mozzarella and provolone)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium mixing bowl combine 1.5 cups of cheese, biscuit pieces and pizza sauce. Gently stir until all biscuit pieces are coated with sauce and the cheese is evenly distributed. Pour mixture into a 9×13 pan or into an oven proof dish about the same size. (I used a 12 inch round “everyday” saute pan) Top with pepperoni slices and then the remaining cheese. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is golden brown on the top and biscuits appear to be cooked through. Remove from the oven and cut into squares or pizza wedges if using a round pan. Enjoy!
