Looking to do pizza night a little differently? Then look no further than this incredibly easy Bubble Up Pizza. What’s a Bubble Up, you ask? Well, it’s kind of like a casserole… but, an easier, modernized, fun casserole. Morsels of refrigerated biscuit dough (or dumplings, or breadsticks, or even pretzel dough) top a delicious saucy concoction in a casserole dish, and as it simmers in the oven, the dough plumps up and the sauce below “bubbles up” and surrounds the biscuits with flavor. This is our pizza version and it’s cheesy, hearty, and delicious and almost too easy!
When I say easy, I mean that you only need five ingredients to make this. Five ingredients and maybe five minutes of prep time from you – the oven does the rest of the work.
You start with a tube of biscuit dough, and you cut each round into eighths.
The wedges go into a bowl (or you can just do this in the baking dish!) and get tossed with pizza sauce and Italian seasoning.
Once that’s arranged in the baking dish, you top it with mozzarella and sliced pepperoni and pop it in the oven. There’s no stove top work, there’s nothing to precook, and yet you end up with a doughy cheesy pepperoni affair after just a few minutes of effort.
As it bakes, the biscuits puff up in the sauce, the pepperoni goes crispy, the cheese gets melty… It’s everything you want from a pizza, it’s just in a bit of a different format. But that format makes it both super easy to prepare and to enjoy. It makes for the perfect pizza night!
