Pizza Casserole

One of my family's favorite foods is pizza.  But there are only so many ways/times we can do a homemade pizza.  I needed to change things up.  I found this recipe over at One Crazy Cookie and loved it!  The only thing I really changed was to use homemade biscuits instead of store bought ones.

1 pound hamburger or sausage

2 cups spaghetti sauce
4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 c. Parmesan cheese
Whatever pizza toppings you like or your family likes
2 1/4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

4 teaspoons baking powder
3 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening
1 egg
2/3 cup milk

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 9x13 dish with non-stick spray

In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Beat egg with milk; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

Turn onto a well-floured surface; knead.

Break dough into little pieces and place in bottom of dish. Top with about 1 1/2 cups cheese.

Brown the hamburger, drain the grease and stir in spaghetti sauce.  Pour over the biscuits.

Top the sauce mix with whatever pizza toppings your family likes.  Then sprinkle remaining cheese on top and spread pepperoni on top of the cheese.

 Bake for 20 minutes.  Let cool 10 minutes before serving.  Enjoy!!

This also will freeze great too.  Just divide the ingredients between 2 dishes (8x8 pans) or double the ingredients.  In the dish you want to freeze, line with foil, spray with non-stick spray, and place in freezer.  When it is frozen, remove from pan and wrap with foil and place in freezer bag to be enjoyed later. =)
