Bubble up pizza is a simple, one pan pizza dinner recipe made with refrigerated biscuits. There’s nothing fancy about it, but it’s always a fan favorite!
We all love pizza, and this is a recipe my stepmother introduced to me when I was a teenager.
Bubble Up Pizza is so easy to make, kids can do it and it uses just a few common ingredients that are easy to keep on hand.
Now, as an adult, I make this for friends kids or as appetizers for when I have company over for games or movies. It’s a fun easy recipe! One of my tried and true favorites.
What is Bubble Up Pizza
For starters, Bubble Up Pizza is a quick and easy baked dish that I totally made countless times as a teenager. A fast and easy snack that anyone can toss together, it’s essentially refrigerated biscuit dough chopped up and tossed with all your favorite pizza ingredients. Thinks pizza meets casserole. Or pizza meats pull apart bread. It’s a perfect recipe to get kids in the kitchen cooking or to share with hungry teenagers.
I have seen mention of it everywhere from Pampered Chef to old school cookbooks – so I claim no origin here, just that this was a recipe taught to me by my stepmother as an easy kid-friendly meal.
Because you’re using biscuit dough, it doesn’t require much prep time. And a warning – it’s light as air! So you’re going to totally eat more than you expect to!
Bubble Up Pizza with Grands Biscuits
The recipe for bubble up pizza requires refrigerated biscuits. You can use Grands, and if they are large, make sure you aren’t using too many. But I like to hunt out the original small biscuits that Pillsbury used to make. They are getting harder and harder to find, as the Grands get fluffier and fluffier. This works with any refrigerated biscuit dough, just make sure you’re cutting the dough into even portions for even baking.
I love saving money and stocking up on the biscuit dough when they are on serious sale! This makes Bubble Up Pizza a crazy cheap meal for the family. I grab the tubes of dough when they are 4 for $2 and then use homemade pizza sauce to pinch pennies. Dinner on a dime, and delicious? Yes, please.
