Pizza Bubble

Pizza Bubble.  Sounds a bit weird, right?  Well, I, personally, love pizza and variations of pizza, but Evan thought this meal sounded terrible.

Then, I made it, and he apologized.  

I got this recipe from my Aunt Delene last year when I asked for recipes from the people in my family in their own handwriting.  I had never had this dish before, but it is definitely one I will be making again since both my girls declared it delicious!!

(Please forgive me for the few short  pictures I have for this post.  I am so out of practice with this blog. Sorry.)

2 cans biscuits (8 or 10); 1 jar of pizza sauce; 1lb roll of sausage; 1lb shredded cheddar cheese; 1 onion, diced.  I added 2 small cans of mushrooms and would have added black olives if I had any as well. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9x13 dish.

After dicing up the onion, brown the sausage and onion together.  Throw in any other pizza "toppings" you'd like to have in your pizza bubble (mushrooms, olives, pepperonis, peppers, etc.) Cook them until the sausage is no longer pink.

With kitchen scissors, cut up the biscuits.  I ended up using 1.5 cans of biscuits because I didn't want any of the biscuits overlapping and not getting cooked properly. (I then attempted to cook the other biscuits, forgot about them, and burned them. Don't worry, Evan laughed and then quoted Yosemite Sam by declaring, "My biscuits is burnin'! My biscuits is burnin'!"
Once the sausage is cooked and you've drained the grease, pour in the pizza sauce and stir it into the mixture, allowing it to warm through.  Once warmed, poor the pizza toppings on top of the biscuits.  Throw it in the oven for 20 minutes.
After the 20 minutes is up, sprinkle the cheese on top of the dish and cook another 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
I served ours with steamed broccoli.
This was super yummy.  The biscuits cooked perfectly and didn't get soggy from the pizza toppings.  Next time I will be adding more veggies, but the mushrooms and sausage were really good.  Both my girls like it and ate it and even Evan admitted it was pretty good...for a casserole.   ;)
