Pizza Biscuit Bake - Quick & Easy

Today's recipe is quick and easy, absolutely delicious - Pizza Biscuit Bake! Ooey gooey cheesy pizza goodness! This fun dish is ready from start to finish in about 35 minutes with only a 10 minute prep. Even better, this recipe is simple to adapt to your liking using your favorite pizza sauce, fixings and seasonings. Perfect as an appetizer or quick dinner served with salad.  

This pizza bake is a nice change from ordinary pizza. It's like a deep dish pizza, oozing with lots and lots of cheese.  

The original recipe can be found on and calls for Pillsbury Grands Original Homestyle Biscuits (8 large biscuits - Pillsbury brand is best), pizza sauce, cheese and pepperoni. You also need non-stick cooking spray to prep a 9x13 baking dish.   

I use Pillsbury Grands Original Southern Homestyle Biscuits - they work great.  

Simply cut each biscuit in eighths (see photo below), toss them in a medium size bowl. Next, pour 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese and 1 cup pizza sauce on top and mix well, coating all sides of the biscuits pieces.  

Pour coated biscuits in a greased 9x13 baking dish and spread them evenly in a single layer. Next, top with pepperoni (or your favorite pizza fixings - ham, cooked sausage and/or bacon, veggies and more), and top with an additional 1 cup mozzarella.  

*I like to add my favorite Italian seasoning - I add a few pinches in the sauce and on top of the pizza. 

Bake on middle rack of pre-heated oven at 375 degrees f. for approximately 20 to 23 minutes.   

Great served with a side of sauce for dipping and salad. If you are feeding more than 4 people, you may want to double the recipe. My family loves this recipe - two pizza bakes are a must!

Pizza Biscuit Bake (Quick & Easy)

  • 1 can Pillsbury Grands Homestyle Refrigerated Original Biscuits (8 big biscuits), each biscuit cut in 8 equal pieces 
  • 1 cup of your favorite pizza sauce (store bought or homemade)
  • 2 cups mozzarella - divided in half
  • 16 slices of pepperoni, regular size 
  • Italian or pizza seasoning - optional
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Spray a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

Cut each biscuit in eighths and toss in a medium size bowl. Pour 1 cup mozzarella cheese, 1 cup sauce on top of biscuits and mix well, coating all sides. Pour coated biscuits in prepared baking dish, top with pepperoni and remaining 1 cup mozzarella. Bake on middle rack of oven for 20 to 23 minutes. When ready, remove and serve warm. Enjoy!  

  • Use your favorite sauce
  • Add your favorite pizza toppings
  • Add a few pinches/dashes of your favorite Italian or pizza seasonings
  • Serve with a side of sauce for dipping
  • Each oven cooks differently, if you notice your cheese is browning too fast, before the biscuits are ready, toss a piece of foil on top. You can also bake the biscuits a little before adding the last 1 cup of mozzarella on top.   
Thanks so much for stopping!
