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

Cheesy pizza casserole is the best weeknight dinner! This recipe combines layers of fluffy biscuit dough with savory tomato sauce, your favorite pizza toppings, and lots of melty cheese.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 1/3 cups 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°F
  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. We used ground beef and ground pork cooked (instead of pepperoni) plus canned mushrooms and black olives. Make sure you get the dough mixture mixed up where there is no flour you can see, that was my only mistake and I should have added a Tablespoon of water it suggested and mixed it with my hands and it would have been better. I googled a Gluten Free Bisquick recipe and used it and it was good. Excited to make it again.
