I love using sausage instead of ground beef in recipes like this because I think sausage has more flavor. Sausage is also often cheaper than ground beef. Pepperoni can easily be substituted to make a more traditional Bubble Up Pizza Casserole too. The Country Cook has a similar Bubble Up Pizza recipe.

How to Make Bubble Up Pizza
Preheat oven to 400°F. Brown and drain sausage. Return sausage to skillet and stir in pizza sauce.
Cut up refrigerated biscuits into 6 to 8 pieces each and sprinkle in the bottom of a lightly greased 9 x 13-inch baking dish.
Pour meat and pizza sauce mixture over top of the unbaked biscuits. Bake for 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and mozzarella and cheddar cheese on top. Bake an additional 5 to 10 minutes until biscuits are baked and cheese is melted.
If cheese is melted, but the biscuits still need to bake cover with foil and bake another 5 to 10 minutes.
Serve warm and enjoy!
