Popover Pizza

This is a favorite of my second oldest. It is pretty simple to make and you can add a variety of meats and/or toppings to it to make it even better. I usually serve this with a simple salad to complete the meal.

Impossibly Easy Pizza Bake

My kids love pizza but with so many kids it can get rather expensive. This is a treat they like and it doesn’t cost me an arm or a leg to make. Add a salad to make it a filling meal.

Impossibly Easy Pizza Bake (links to original recipe)

Ingredients:

3 1/3 c. Original Bisquick™ mix (from a 2 lb 8 oz box)

1 c. milk

1 jar (14 oz) pizza sauce

1 package (7 oz) sliced pepperoni

2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese, or the pizza blend

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Spray 13×9-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray.

In medium bowl, mix the  Bisquick and milk until soft dough forms.

Drop half of dough by spoonfuls evenly in bottom of baking dish (dough will not completely cover bottom of dish).

Drizzle about 1 cup pizza sauce over dough.

Arrange half of the pepperoni slices evenly over sauce.

Top with 1 cup of cheese.

Repeat layers with remaining dough, pizza sauce, pepperoni and cheese.

Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown, biscuits in center are cooked, and cheese in center is bubbly.
