My family loves pizza, but then again, most families probably do too. While takeout pizza is good, it gets pretty expensive to feed a family of four that includes two teenagers. It's a lot cheaper to make it yourself and you know what goes into it.
So I made something that I saw on Pinterest...a lot. I tried to find where this recipe came from, and it seems to be a Pampered Chef recipe. It's being called "Bubble Up Pizza," but I'm just going to call it Biscuit Pizza because that's what it is.
I always have some homemade marinara sauce on hand. Here's my recipe for Basic Marinara. You can use the jarred stuff or even that pizza quick stuff for convenience. But, if you can make your own, it's always much better.
You can really do what you want as far as toppings go here. I found some little mini pepperonis that I used and I also used some Italian sausage. My family really loved this. Pay attention to the cooking temperature. I tried it the first time at a lower setting, and we had pasty dough instead of a crust. I think your family will enjoy this, especially if you have kids.
One can Grands biscuits, 8 count
2-3 C Basic Marinara (depends on how saucy you want it)
Red chili flakes, to taste
5 ounces pepperoni
1/2 lb Italian sausage, cooked and crumbled
8 ounces shredded Mozzarella
1/4 C shredded Parmesan cheese
Chopped Italian parsley, for garnish
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cut each biscuit into fours. In a large bowl, toss the biscuits around with the marinara sauce, red chili flakes, the pepperoni, and the sausage. Put the biscuit mixture into a casserole pan (you can use a cas iron skillet or even a bundt pan) where they can slightly touch but aren't crowded together tightly. Bake for about 30 minutes or until the biscuits have puffed up well and are done through. Sprinkle the cheeses on top and broil for a couple of minutes to melt. Garnish with parsley, if desired.
