Easy meal ideas are great in the warm weather months when you don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen! This Upside Down Pizza recipe is easy to prepare and you can even cook your ground beef or sausage and chop up some of the topping ingredients ahead of time to speed up the prep work!
You can make this casserole in a 9×13″ pan or baking dish. I took some photos of this dish for Mary & Martha, and I used their Fresh Joy™ Rectangular Baking Dish, available at maryandmartha.com (the Served with Love Napkins also shown in the photo are from there too). This baking dish is a great size for casseroles and it looks so nice on the table when you’re serving your meal! This recipe is actually one from a Mary & Martha consultant, so thanks to Gwendolyn Myers for sharing it!
Upside Down Pizza
UPSIDE DOWN PIZZA
Makes a 9×13″ pan
- 1 pound ground beef or sausage, cooked
- Various pizza topping of your choice (pepperoni, mushrooms, onion, bell pepper, olives, etc.—I used 2/3 cup finely-chopped onion, 2/3 cup finely-chopped bell pepper, an 8-ounce can of mushroom pieces and stems, 2 (2.25-ounce) cans of sliced black olives, and about two thirds of a 5-ounce package of pepperoni)
- 1 (10.5-ounce) can condensed Cream of Mushroom soup
- 1 (16-ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
- 2 cups shredded cheese (Mozzarella or an Italian blend works well)
- 1 (16.3-ounce) can of 8 Pillsbury Grands!™ Buttermilk Biscuits
Place cooked meat in the bottom of a greased 9×13 ” pan. Layer the pizza toppings of your choice over the cooked meat.
In a medium-size bowl, combine soup and spaghetti sauce, blending well, then pour or spread mixture evenly over the toppings in the pan. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top.
Cut the buttermilk biscuit dough in quarters and place evenly over the top of all the ingredients. Bake 350˚F for 35 to 45 minutes (I baked mine for about 38 minutes). NOTE: if biscuits are getting overly browned, you can cover the casserole with foil the last 10 minutes of baking).
