Pizza Casserole

I don’t know about you but sometimes dinner planning is just TOO much.

I seem to have dessert ideas for days, but dinner, I get stumped. Not because I don’t have the resources. I mean there is this whole website called PINTEREST that is basically YELLING at you to make all the food. AND I have a whole board designated to “Dinner Ideas“. So yeah, I have all the tools. Yet, sometimes I sit here scratching my big fat head.

Anyhow, when I have no idea what to feed my family unit, I always revert back to pizza. It’s basically a completely balanced dinner all in a slice. So, win. And coming up with new and different ideas to eat pizza is pretty much a full time job. Remember these Pizza Sticks?

Well, now we’re taking the basic pizza ingredients and turning it into a casserole. Because it really just makes sense. And this recipe couldn’t be easier. You most likely have everything on hand right now to make! PLUS it’s infinitely adaptable to your own topping preferences.

So yep yep…Easy Pizza Casserole. Get it.

Description

This SUPER Easy Pizza Casserole only uses a few ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. It’s a totally adaptable, quick and easy weeknight meal!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 3/4 cup Bisquick
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • 1 (14-15 oz) jar pizza sauce
  • 6 oz sliced pepperoni
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°
  2. Spray a 9×13 baking dish lightly with cooking spray, set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl combine Bisquick, garlic powder and Italian seasonings. Add water and stir until a soft dough forms. (If dough is too sticky, sprinkle a few tablespoons more Bisquick, if it feels dry add a tablespoon of water).
  4. Divide dough in half and drop dough by tablespoon sized portions all over the bottom of the prepared pan. Pan will not be covered by the dough.
  5. Drizzle 1 cup of the pizza sauce on top of the dough. Then layer half of the pepperoni on top of sauce.
  6. Sprinkle half of the mozzarella cheese all over the pepperoni. Repeat this entire process again with remaining ingredients.
  7. Bake 20-25 minutes. Cut into squares and serve warm.

  1. I was intrigued by the pictures and reviews, but I should have known it would take just like you’d think a biscuit with tomato sauce and cheese would taste. Nothing against this recipe, just not for us.

    1. I’ve never tried homemade bread dough, but pizza dough works well, so I would imagine it would be fine!

  2. Going on 50ish min baking and the dough is still gooey… used the same amount of sauce but your photos look like way less than what mine looks like… this sounds/smells amazing…what could i have done?

  3. I would love to make this but we do not have Bisquick here in Australia. Does anybody know of an Australian equivelant to it? Also how many grams in a stick of butter?

  4. Made this last night for my boys and best man. Loved it!
    This will be going on the rotation for easy weeknight dinner.
    My college guys will be learning how to make this one as well – so easy!!
    Thanks for sharing!

  5. Shelly! I made this a few days ago, and brought some left overs to work and all my co-workers were oogling over it! It was amazing! Thanks for the beautiful recipe!

  6. I made this recipe last week for my family. It was a hit. Everyone loved it and it was so easy to make. Thanks for a quick and easy dinner to make for a busy family!
