Who Doesn’t Love Pizza?!

We are pizza lovers – especially making or own with Homemade Pizza Dough!

Having said that, we don’t always have time for homemade Pepperoni Pizza and when that’s the case, our go-to is this pizza casserole.

It’s a great dinner idea for kids, but it’s so simple the kids can even make it themselves (our 3 oldest take turns making this one. It’s definitely a family fav!

Why we love it:

  • So easy the kids can do it. With simple steps, this recipe takes just 5 minutes of prep time, which makes it an AH-MAZING easy dinner idea.
  • Flavor variations. Casseroles are by nature versatile, and this pizza version is no different! Just top it with your favorites and make it your own.
  • Family-friendly. It’s easy, it’s cheesy – it’s delicious. The entire family loves it.

Ingredients

  • 1 (16.3-ounce) can refrigerator Grand Biscuits or use Homemade Pizza Dough. Pinch off 64 small pieces that are 7 grams each.
  • 1 (8-ounce) jar pizza sauce we like Classico if going store-bought, or our homemade Pizza Sauce Recipe (or White Pizza Sauce).
  • 3 cups Mozzarella cheese burrata cheese is another Italian cheese that melts well.
  • 1 teaspoon pizza seasoning store-bought or Homemade Pizza Seasoning
  • pizza toppings use your favorite toppings

  3. BAKE. Top this with another 1½ cups of shredded cheese and pepperoni slices. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon pizza seasoning on top. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown and cheese begins to brown.

FREEZE. Bake the dish before freezing. Cover the cooled pizza with plastic wrap and again with foil and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw before reheating in the oven. Smaller portions can be heated in the microwave.

    A great meal for the family! Very quick and taSty.

    1. Danielle says:

      I made this today thinking that it would be a fast meal from start to finish. Had a busy night. Put in the oven for 22 minutes and wasn’t close to finish. Kept
      Adding 5 minutes. (Five times). Never fully cooked. Had to leave without dinner. Lucky I had a salad prepared. I think it would be a great meal if I had more time.
