This is my granddaughter's most requested meal when she comes to visit. It's a meal in itself, but a salad would go nice with it. Have fun experimenting with your favorite pizza toppings.

I was very skeptical about this dish...I don't really know why but intially, it didn't appeal to me. However, I made this per my boyfriend's request. He asked me to make a pizza-like dish without having to make actually make a pizza or the ones that have the noodles in it. I used italian sausage instead of beef, added a chopped green bell pepper, and instead of using 2 pkg biscuit dough, I had a can of "Pillsbury Grands" = which are large and thick. I split the refridgerated biscuits horizontally in half and layered them, following the remaining instructions. Its a little salty for my taste (not sure why????) but good and my boyfriend really seemed to enjoy this alot. Although I'm still trying to figure out where the saltiness came from (the sausage perhaps?) overall, it was pretty good and I might make this again when my boyfriend has a craving for his "pizza dish." Thanks Ginny. Read More

Yes its just tasty. But you might as well make lasagna or something. This is something that hcildren would love. THe bisquits did make it taste good. I cooked the bisquits for 8 minutes before everything on top of them. And I seasoned the beef and the sauce. I only used beef pepperoni and chopped onion and green peppers. THis is more of a kid-friendly recipe. Read More

A great inexpensive way for a quick pizza. However I made just plain cheese and it was very good. I've found that it turns out better in a glass baking dish since a metal one browns it up on the bottom a bit more and quicker before the topping is done. I've already made this multiple times and will continue to. Read More

We love love love this recipe!! We "have" to have it at least once a week (if not more). This is something I can prepare the night before and hubby puts in the oven right before I get home from work. My daughter has to have at least 2 helpings (unusual!!). I have slight variations: I use plain 'ole tomato sauce (2 8oz cans) instead of pizza sauce and put italian spices in the meat or the sauce. I also don't use the sausage we use regular pepperoni. I also cut up onion and green pepper into tiny pieces and cook with the hamburger as well as using the food processor to chop up a can of mushrooms and putting them in the sauce. Absolutely no one noticed and they still gobbled it down. i used cheap biscuits they worked great. And I made it with the biscuits cut up and not cut up I prefer cut up it's easier for the kids. All in all a wonderful recipe! Definitly on my list every week!! thanks! Read More

This was tasty and I was surprised how tall it rose. I used 3 "7.5 ounce" cans of biscuits. Use only 2 if you prefer a thinner crust. For those of you who had problems with the crust drying out too much be sure to cover the ENTIRE crust with especially the edges and corners. Also for those who thought the crust tasted like too much like biscuits use the old fashioned (non-flaky) biscuits rather than the buttermilk ones. TY and will keep this in my file!!! Read More

I've made something like this several times before but lost my recipe and had to look up the temperature and time. This is pretty much fool proof. I just dump everything together in a bowl and spread it out in a 13x9 inch pan. I don't bother with layers and it turns out really nicely. You can add any ingredients you want to this my favorite being bacon (already mostly cooked through to loose a good amount of the grease) onion and ground beef with a little bit of the cheddar cheese mixed in with everything as well as on top. Super easy and good. Read More

This is a delicious and easy favorite for this family on the go. Since my husband and 2 sons all like different pizza toppings I solved the problem by dividing the ingredients into 2 deep dish pie plates and had one "adult friendly" and one "kid friendly" dish. Baked a little quicker and worked out great. Thanks Ginny! Read More

I too was skeptical about this recipe but it is now a family favorite. Look for Walmart brand biscuit as they are the only ones I have found to have no trans fats. I vary the toppings every time I make this but even my young nephew asks for more. It's amazing. Read More

I made this without the ground beef - just layered the quartered biscuits then pizza quick sauce then mozzarrella then pepperoni (with onions and mushrooms on the grown-up's side). It was DELICIOUS and very easy!! The kids and dad loved it and I will definitely make again. Read More
