Simple Pizza Casserole is just that – a few ingredients, and you have a tasty pizza casserole that everybody is gonna love!
We eat some form of pizza every week. Whether Zack is making No Rise No Fail Homemade Pizza Dough and we’re topping it with our favorite toppings, or he’s making his Super Easy Pizza Pockets/Calzones, or I’m making Easy Taco Pizza; we eat a form of pizza every week. It’s one of our favorites, and really the concept is really versatile. If you’re watching your carbs you could make pizza topped zucchini rounds, or you could make French bread pizzas, or you could make this Simple Pizza Casserole. It really can’t get any simpler than this.
I buy canned biscuits (Annie’s), but you can buy whatever your family prefers, or if you’ve got all the time in the world (yay, for you!), you can make them from scratch. I happen to have a very easy recipe for Fluffy Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits, if you want to give that a try. I just don’t always have the time to make them, even though they take minutes to whip up, and Annie’s is a brand that we feel really good about using.
This recipe has been known by several different names, like bubble up or pop up pizza, but I like simple pizza casserole, because it’s simple, and it’s basically a casserole. We opted for boring 😉 pepperoni and cheese, but you can add peppers, olives, mushrooms, onions, sausage, or whatever you like. Make it your own!
Simple Pizza Casserole
- 1 can Annie's refrigerated biscuits
- 1 can of pizza sauce
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 3 cloves of minced garlic
- 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
- 2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
- Your choice of Pizza toppings
Cut biscuits into pieces (about 6 pieces per biscuit)
In a large bowl stir together pizza sauce, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, Italian seasoning, minced garlic, and pizza toppings.
Pour into a greased baking dish. (I use an 8X8)
Top with the remainder of the mozzarella cheese and parmesan.
Bake at 350 for 40 to 45 minutes, or until dough is completely cooked through. If you notice too much browning, you can cover with foil.
