This Simple Pizza Casserole is made quick, using canned biscuits, cheese, and any of your favorite toppings. If will be your family's choice for pizza night!
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 pizza and pop up pizza.
