This easy biscuit pizza casserole recipe fits our lifestyle because it uses refrigerated biscuit dough, sausage, pizza sauce, and cheese.  These are all simple ingredients that we all enjoy and typically have in the house.

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.

I’ve been trying to become more sophisticated, but let’s be honest, at the end of the day I LOVE a cheap and easy casserole for picky eaters like this Sausage Pizza Bubble Up.

All of the ingredients in this casserole have a longer shelf life or can be frozen which makes this another easy meal.  Just use some nice freezer containers like this and freeze individual servings for easy meals that can be used in the next two to three months.

My husband would love to add more ingredients like mushrooms, onions, and peppers to this dish, which we could do to half of the pan.  I like that it is a versatile and easy bubble up casserole dish with several options.

I was talking to my mother-in-law about easy meal ideas and she shared this recipe.  It makes a big batch that could easily be cut in half, but we love having leftovers for easy workday lunches throughout the week.

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!
