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.

      Actually, this is a ‘whatever’s on hand’ recipe. It is usually the smaller size jar, smaller then spaghetti or marinara sauce. Probably about 10oz. But toss in as much or as little as you like. I love pizza sauce so I have been known to use tons more if I am making this just for family and myself.

    I may have done it wrong, but I cooked mine in a big cast iron skillet. The top burnt and the biscuits underneath were still raw. I used Grands instead of regular biscuits so that could have been the problem.

    i’m sure this is delicious. right now i wouldn’t know b\c i just put it back in the oven for the THIRD time b\c the biscuits are STILL not done. so right now i’m at twice the baking time on the can of biscuits- and i have a new oven. maybe an fyi for some people. i’m sure it’s yummy. it certainly smells good!

      Mine also cooked for much longer- 35 minutes and it probably could have gone another five but we were too hungry to wait!!! Gonna decrease amount of biscuits next time to see if it helps… it was as yummy as promised though!

    I just made this for dinner tonight and it is all GONE!!! I put a layer of cottage cheese for protein on top of the dough before the top layer of sauce and then cheese. It was so good!!
    Thanks for sharing!
