Does your house have a dedicated pizza night? We sure do! Some weeks we even have two! 😉

While we like to make a lot of homemade pizza, we’re always looking for fun, new ways to eat it. We heard about baking biscuit pizzas and immediately new we wanted to turn it into a casserole.

We’re so glad that we did, because it is now one of our all-time favorite movie night meals!

Ingredients

Overhead look at the ingredients to make biscuit pizza casserole: canned Grands! Biscuits, shredded mozzarella, fresh mozzarella, pepperonis, butter, minced garlic, and parsley.
  • Biscuits – Canned biscuits are the the hero in this recipe. We used Pillsbury Grands! Southern Homestyle.
  • Pizza Sauce – We always keep some jarred pizza sauce on hand, but homemade makes this recipe extra delicious if you have some.
  • Cheese – Use fresh mozzarella to stuff each biscuit and shredded mozzarella on top of the casserole.
  • Garlic Butter – Fresh garlic and butter mixed with a little bit of fresh parsley gets brushed on the casserole to add extra flavor.
  • Toppings – We kept it classic by using pepperonis as our topping, but you can use whatever you’d like. A supreme or Hawaiian version of this casserole sounds amazing!

Tips

  • If you substitute another brand of canned biscuits, make sure that they are “big” or “jumbo” sized.
  • For a shortcut, buy pre-sliced fresh mozzarella.
  • To make a smaller version of this casserole, use half the ingredients and a deep pie plate.

Ingredients

2 8 count Cans of Grands Southern Homestyle Biscuits

8oz Fresh Sliced Mozzarella Cheese

20 Slices of Pepperoni

1/2 Cup Pizza Sauce

1 Tbsp Parsley

3 Tbsp Salted Butter

3 Cloves Garlic, minced

1/2 Cup Shredded Mozzarella

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 375° F.

Open and separate biscuits. Cut into the middle of each biscuit to form a pocket. Stuff with one slice of mozzarella cheese, a couple slices of pepperoni, and a spoonful of sauce. Place each biscuit open side up into a 10″ oven-safe pan or casserole dish.

Melt butter, stir in garlic and parsley. Brush bread generously with butter mixture. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella over the top.

Place in the oven for 35-40 minutes, until cheese has melted and the biscuit tops are beginning to brown.

Serve immediately with extra pizza sauce for dipping, if desired. Enjoy!
