Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 2 packages refrigerated, ready-to-cook biscuits
  • 1 jar of pizza sauce or tomato sauce with basil
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small package pepperoni slices (approximately 50 slices)
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • 8 ounces shredded cheddar
  • 8 ounces shredded mozzarella
  • grease or nonstick spray
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Separate and quarter all of the biscuits. Place them into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Quarter all of the pepperoni slices. Add them to your mixing bowl.
  4. Brown and drain the ground beef. Add it to your mixing bowl.
  5. Grease or spray your 9x13-inch pan.
  6. Add the sauce, the minced garlic, and half of the cheddar to your mixing bowl. Thoroughly mix together everything in the bowl.
  7. Spoon the mixture into the pan. Spread evenly.
  8. Bake the dish for approximately 25 minutes. The biscuits should have risen a bit and feel firmer to the touch than an uncooked biscuit.

  11. Serve immediately and mangia!
