Bubble Up Pizza

29 Feb

I’ve had this recipe in my “to make someday” folder for several months now, and finally decided to give it a try.  I enjoy pizza as an occasional treat, and thought this might be a fun way to try making it on my own.  This is a supremely easy and quick way to make pizza, and I’m sure kids would love it!

****

  • 2 containers refrigerated biscuit dough
  • 1 jar pizza sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1 cup pepperoni (or other favourite toppings)
  • 5 fresh basil leaves

Preheat oven as per directions on dough.  With a sharp knife, divide each biscuit into 4.  In a large bowl, add diced biscuit dough, sauce, 1 1/2 cups cheese and toppings; stir.

Pour mixture into greased oven safe skillet or 9×13 pan.  Chiffonade the basil and sprinkle over top, along with remaining cheese.  Bake according to directions on dough, checking to make sure dough is cooked through and cheese is bubbling (10-14 minutes).

****

I prefer thin crust pizzas, so I decided to cut the recipe in half so it wouldn’t be so “doughy.”  I used Parmesan instead of Mozzarella, since that’s the only cheese that I can eat without getting sick, but I’m sure any of your favourite cheeses would be great on this.

This was fabulous!  The taste of the biscuits as pizza dough was interesting, but I liked it.  I had some farmer sausage in the freezer, and it worked perfectly.  It only took a few minutes to prepare and bake, so it’s the perfect thing to cook if you’re feeling as lazy as I was the other night! 😉
