Bubble Up Pizza Casserole

I stumbled upon this recipe and met it with a unique mixture of disgust and desire. Made it vegetarian and took out the store-bought biscuits, plus a few other changes along the way.

Stephanie's Bubble Up Pizza Casserole

  • 1 Tofurkey Meatless Italian Sausage, chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 c sliced mushrooms (I would have used more, but that's all I had. But they were shiitake! Mmm)
  • 1/2 tsp dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 jar Trader Joe’s Fat Free Pizza Sauce (I used almost the entire jar)
  • 1 pizza dough (I'd planned on using homemade, but didn't have any on hand, so I grabbed a pre-made one from Trader Joe's)
  • 1 c Finely Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1.  Preheat oven to 375 and grease a 9×13 dish. 
2.  Heat a splash of oil in a large frying pan.  Add sausage and brown, then remove/set sausage aside.
3.  Add vegetables (and another splash of oil) to pan and cook until soft, approximately 5-7 minutes. Add spices, spaghetti sauce, and sausage. Mix well and remove from heat.
4.  Coat the bottom of your pan with pizza dough.
5.  Spread half of the sauce mixture over the biscuits. Sprinkle with half of the cheese. Repeat layers.
6. Bake for 23-28 minutes or until golden brown. Cut into squares and ENJOY!
