Pizza in a Can

Yesterday, as I was gazing through my boards on Pinterest, I came along this little gem that I had been wanting to try out for a while. It looked tasty and easy enough, so I said, “What the heck! Let’s make this Bubble-Up Pizza.”

And I did.

I changed the original recipe (and the name) quite a bit to have it more suit Sumo’s and my needs, er, wants…(?) It turned out pretty good. There are a few things I would change if I make it again; I’ll post those at the bottom. For now, here’s what you’re looking for.

To see the original recipe, and other delightfully delicious-looking treats, head over to Mo’Betta. She has some really yummy stuff! Baked Meyer Lemon Donuts – get out!

Pizza Bites’a Biscuits (try saying that 10 times in a row)
2 cans of buttermilk biscuits
15 oz can tomato sauce
1 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp parsley
1 tbsp basil
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp garlic, minced
pepperoni (as much as you’d prefer)
2 c shredded Italian 6 blend cheese

1. Preheat oven to 375. Open up the biscuit cans and quarter the individual biscuits.

2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together tomato sauce, oregano, parsley, basil, pepper flakes, and garlic. Add pepperoni and 1 c shredded cheese.

3. Add biscuits, mix well. Place in a 9 x 13 baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Top with rest of cheese and more pepperoni.

4. Pop that sucker into the oven for 25 minutes (I tried 27 and the cheese on top was a bit too done).

5. Serve and enjoy.

Ok, here are my thoughts with this one: It’s has a very simple taste. Don’t take that to mean that I thought it wasn’t good, it just needed a bit of jazzing up for my palate. If I had children, I’m 100% positive that they would devour this like a T-Rex devours a Pterodactyl.

Anyway, my first idea would be to add more sauce. Maybe another 8 oz can of tomato sauce. Also, add in some sliced Roma tomatoes and some chopped onions. Lastly, maybe don’t go with buttermilk biscuits – unless you really like pizza crust. When you bite into a biscuit, it tends to be dry and flaky – as biscuits are supposed to be. I like my pizza on the saucy side. Try plain rolls or, maybe even crescent rolls. I’m just spitballing here, so I’d love to hear your ideas.

All in all, it was really quite tasty, super easy, and much cheaper than ordering a pizza.

Plus you can make it in 30 minutes or less. Well, depending on how quickly you can quarter the biscuits.

About Chrissy

Hi! I'm Chrissy. I'm a 31 year old cast-iron (pretty much) newbie. I'm learning more as I go and screwing up quite a bit along the way. I'm a northern girl (Yay, PA!) who has been transplanted to the south and am trying to embrace becoming a southern lady. Hence the cast-iron pan. I've never made my own biscuits and I have no idea what a dutch baby is. But you can bet that I'll figure all of that out. So stick around and see what happens as I learn the in- and-outs of cooking with cast-iron.
