Dinner Tonight: Pepperoni Pizza Bake
Started off with breakfast, workout, and shower. Cooler outside today after 68 degrees yesterday.
Rain on and off almost all day. So not much going on outside, stayed inside and cleaned the house today. Had to have the repairman we always use to come and do for work for us today also. We had a kitchen drawer break its slider bracket and we had to have the heating tape for our waterlines replaced. It seems lately it's always something, be it the house or car that needs repaired! For dinner tonight a new recipe, Pepperoni Pizza Bake.
Came across this Pillsbury recipe and one other in a cooking magazine and couldn't wait to give them a try. I'm preparing the Grands Pepperoni Pizza Bake, I'm saving the other recipe for later (Sausage Crescent Cheese Balls). To make this dish I'll need just 4 ingredients; 1 can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Homestyle refrigerated original biscuits, 1 can (8 oz) pizza sauce, 2 cups finely shredded mozzarella cheese (8 oz), and 16 slices pepperoni (1 1/2 inch). I used Ragu Homestyle Pizza Sauce, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, and Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (Traditional Cut).
To prepare the dish I started by heating the oven to 375°F. Sprayed 13x9-inch (3-quart) baking dish
with Pam with Olive Oil Cooking Spray. Separate the dough into 8 biscuits. Cut each biscuit into 8 pieces. Then in large bowl, toss with biscuit pieces, pizza sauce and 1 cup of the cheese.Top with pepperoni and remaining 1 cup cheese. Baked for 23 minutes, and the biscuits were golden brown. The dish turned out incredible! Just a fantastic combination of 4 ingredients that work together. The Pillsbury Grands Biscuits gives it that Pizza texture and taste. You could add Mushrooms, Sausage or any of your favorite Pizza toppings to the dish. I've left the original recipe and web link at the end of the post. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse.
