Quick Dinner Fixins: Bubble Up Pizza

When you love to cook, it’s hard to remember that not every dish needs to be elegant, time consuming and complicated. Sometimes it’s about coming back to the basics – which is something I am guilty of. I like to put a nice meal on the table every night, so spending a few hours in the kitchen isn’t even something I blink at – but not everyone enjoys cooking the way I do (why you’d be reading a food blog and not enjoy cooking though… well that just boggles me).

Bubble Up Pizza is something I was educated in when my father and I moved in with my now step-mom and sister. It was a quick, inexpensive meal for nights when the parents may have been out late or we needed an after school snack.

Quick Dinner Fixins: Bubble Up Pizza


  • 2 containers refrigerated biscuit dough, 6 biscuits each (I used Pillsbury)
  • 1 jar pizza sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1 cup pepperoni (or other favorite toppings)
  • 5 fresh basil leaves


Preheat oven as per directions on dough. With a sharp knife, divide each biscuit into 4. In a large bowl, combine diced biscuit dough, sauce, 1 1/2 cups cheese and toppings. Stir to combine.

Pour mixture into greased oven safe skillet or 9×13 baking pan. Chiffonade the basil and sprinkle on top along with remaining cheese. Bake according to directions on dough, checking to make sure dough is cooked through and cheese is bubbling (I always bake mine for an additional 5 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes before serving.

You’ve been warned: this is light as air so you will eat waaay more of it then you intended to. Serve with a salad and fill up on that before diving into this.

  1. […] This week has been a “Dinner from Pinterest” week at our house.  On Monday, we tried Crispy Garlic Shrimp (which I just realized I think I found via a pin, but don’t have pinned and can’t find now… if I find the link, I’ll edit the post and share it!) – this was yum!  We had it with rice and salad.  Very light dinner. On Tuesday we had Carmelized Chicken and Crack Potatoes (I made a half batch – super easy to cut this recipe in half!).  The chicken was ok.  Not my favorite.  Potatoes were really good though!  Tonight will be Corn Chowder and tomorrow will be Bubble Up Pizza.

  2. […] Bubble Up Pizza 5 Apr I’m stuffed!  So much for not cooking for a week in preparation to leave for a month.  I cleaned out the refrigerator and everything but having absolutely no food in the house sucks.  So I made a quick trip to the grocery store today for just enough stuff to make a recipe I found on Pinterest.  Find the recipe here.
