This recipe has been around for years. I am not sure where it got started, but maybe it was Pillsbury since you use canned biscuits in it. It is also considered a Pampered Chef recipe. Whoever came up with it, it's a good one! As I have told you before, I am not a big fan of the canned biscuits, but in a few things, they work. This is one of those few things! They work perfectly! This is so easy and it would be a great recipe to get the kiddos involved in making. Let them cut the biscuits up and sprinkle the cheese and pepperoni. If you have teens, this is a dish they can make themselves, start to finish! I always find that kids will eat what they have a hand in cooking with much more enthusiasm and pride, than if they are just called to dinner when it's all done! Let them get creative with this and add their own choice of toppings. I used the basics, but you can add mushroom slices, chopped olives. chopped onion, ham, bacon...whatever you like on your pizza! Here is what you will need for this recipe:
1 lb. ground sausage or ground beef, browned (could use Italian sausage also)
1 (16.3 oz.) can of Pillsbury Grand's Biscuits (can use 2 cans regular size canned biscuits)
1 (15 oz.) can of pizza sauce
1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
8 oz. pepperoni slices
1/2 cup shredded or grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Brown the sausage or ground beef in a skillet. Drain any excess grease. Cut the biscuits in 6 pieces by cutting them in half and then in 3 wedges each. If you use the smaller canned biscuits, just cut each on in fourths. Turn the heat off under the browned sausage or beef. Add the canned biscuits to the skillet.
Add the can of pizza sauce and lightly toss to coat all of biscuit pieces and mix the meat.
Spray a 9"x13" baking dish with nonstick spray. Spread the biscuit mixture evenly. Top with the mozzarella and cheddar cheeses. If you prefer, you can use all mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle the top with the pepperoni slices.
Sprinkle the top with the Parmesan cheese. Place in the 375 degree oven and bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
It will be nice and brown on top! Remove and serve immediately!
Add a tossed salad and dinner is served! It doesn't get much easier!
