Bubble Pizza

I don’t have a clue where bubble pizza originated, but it seems many people have their own version of it.  My little one says this is easy-peasy-pumpkin-squeezy.  In the summer she said it was easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy.  🙂

Speaking of kiddies, this is a great recipe for them to take charge of.  It’s a versatile dish that’s actually perfect for a young teen to make…wink wink 😉  My 3-year old was able to do most of the work for the version pictured since she cut the mushrooms with her safety knife and put it all together with mommy only slicing the onions and grating the cheese.  I love meals like this where she feels like she “cooked” it all herself.

Since it calls for canned biscuits, I try to use a brand that has less of the unpronounceable words in the ingredients list.  We use Trader Joe’s biscuits or Pillsbury.  Add whatever ingredients you like or have on hand and have fun!

Bubble Pizza

Bubble Pizza
Recipe type: Entree
  • •2 cans refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (I use Trader Joe's biscuits which contain 8 biscuits per can or Pillsbury)
  • •1 jar of homemade or store-bought pizza sauce (about 15 oz.)
  • •2-3 cups of mozzarella cheese, shredded/grated
  • •Toppings of choice such as: sliced mushrooms, cooked sausage, pepperoni, thinly sliced red onions, sliced olives, Canadian bacon, etc.
  • •Basil, chopped (optional)
  1. Preheat oven according to biscuit instructions (usually about 350°). Grease/spray a 9x13 pan lightly. Cut all biscuits into quarters and place in a medium to large size bowl. Add sauce to biscuits along with 1 to 1.5 cups of cheese and all toppings. Toss together, coating all biscuits pieces. Transfer to the greased pan. Top with remaining cheese (1 cup or as much as you like!) and basil. Bake for about 25-35 minutes until biscuits are cooked through (check center pieces) and cheese is melted and a bit bubbly. Enjoy!

  1. YUM and FUN! I think my 20 something would love this – I’ll be sure to remember…hopefully!! haha Miss your sweet face and that of your darling ‘lil Lisey…<3 p.s. I'm living vicariously through Cozycakes!

  2. p.s. Still haven’t been to SAC, yet…blah!! My nieces who are pre-teens/teens would love this, too, perhaps soon I’ll make it for them in person…hmmm?? They’ll need this comfort food as the weather changes, right? You know how cold it can get up North in them there hills!!

  3. I love this but never knew what it was called! A friend brought this over for my family this summer when we were dealing with a death in the family. My kids ate it up! I’m excited to see it is so easy – will be making this soon!! Thanks for sharing!

    1. lol yes do it! Heck, tell them to get dinner going for themselves and head to Cracker Barrel with your hubs. That shouldn’t be an issue, right ? 😉 I didn’t have it as a kid though I bet I would’ve loved it. I only discovered it as a grown woman and ate it like I was 5.

  4. I’ve never even heard of this (Erin and I must be in the same bubble). Maybe this is a pizza that Violet will eat. She used to love pizza, but now not so much. I, on the other hand, will always have a (large) place in my heart for pizza!
    Is Munchie’s safety knife marketed as a knife for kids? Where did you get it?

    1. LOL Yes, I lol again. It is more biscuit-ey than pizza..does she like biscuits? Yes, her knife is a kiddie knife and I got it from Pampered Chef 🙂 Do it. Munchie has jabbed her hand with it, but nothing happened–awesome.

I love your comments and read them all.
