Easy Dinner Recipe: Pizza in a Pan

Oh yes. This happened. More than once.
I was pinning, you know, like we ladies do when we create meal plans. Honestly, how did we create meal plans before Pinterest? I don't even want to think about it. Currently we are getting ready to head to Virginia to see our family which includes our new nephew! So stoked. This mind is rushing, planning, mentally packing and mentally freaking out about the 6-7 hour drive with a 16 month old.

Pardon me, dinner, but you will just have to cooperate with me and be done in about, oh, 20 minutes okay? Yes, dinner did cooperate and was ready in less than a half an hour! Boom. Case closed.

I adopted this recipe from Pillsbury right here but changed it very slightly. Basically I am cheap so I used spaghetti sauce instead of pizza sauce and generic biscuits instead of name brand. Sorry, Pillsbury. I love ya but the wallet sometimes screams for mercy from my purse when we hit the store.

If you're looking for a quick, easy, yummy dinner that can feed two or the multitude, look no further! I made this in two pans for a family of about 15 this past summer and it was a hit. Can't say it was my brilliant culinary expertise (sounds snazzy though) but it simply was because everyone LOVES pizza! So throwing all the ingredients in a pan and having it cultivate into a delicious hot, cheesy dish really makes the hearts flutter. And mouths water.

What you'll need:
1 can of Jumbo Biscuits
1 can of pizza or spaghetti sauce
2 cups mozzarella cheese
Handful of pepperoni and/or other toppings

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cut each biscuit into 8 small pieces. In a large bowl, combine the biscuit pieces, sauce and 1 cup of cheese. Mix well. Spray a 13x9 baking pan and pour the ingredients from the bowl into the pan, spreading evenly. Sprinkle the remaining cheese, add the pepperoni or your favorite toppings and bake for 20 minutes uncovered. When done, let cool for 1-2 minutes.

That's it! I'd like to try this with veggies.
Now tell me, what kind of pizza toppings do you like?


  1. My word - my mouth was watering all the time I ready this one: and it's so darn quick too! Must try it out sometime - maybe when staying with daughter in her house, as planned shortly! Thanks for sharing.


    1. You're welcome! I'd love to know if you do try this at your daughter's. Have a great time, God bless.

  2. How many ounces for the sauce?
