A Crowd-Pleasing Pepperoni Pizza Slow Cooker Bubble-Up Bake
A dish for all ages that your slow cooker would also love to cook for you.
When said that the slow cooker can cook almost any dish, I really mean it can cook any kind of dish! And that includes pizza. Now let us start with something very familiar, a pepperoni pizza.
But let us put a bit of twist to it. Have you ever tried a bubble or bubble-up pizza? That is exactly what this recipe is! Instead of having the typical round pizza dough fro the base, why not try biscuit dough? Yes, biscuit dough. And before you say anything a tad negative, I suggest that your try it out first.
Check out the recipe below.
Pepperoni Pizza Slow Cooker Bubble-Up Bake
- (16.3 oz) Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Homestyle refrigerated biscuits - 1 can
- sliced pepperoni - 1 cup
- Italian seasoning - 2 teaspoons
- Muir Glen™ organic pizza sauce (from 15-oz can) - 1 cup
- shredded mozzarella cheese (8 oz) - 2 cups
- Spray insert of 6- to 7-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Separate 1 can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Homestyle refrigerated biscuits into 8 biscuits. Cut each into 6 pieces; place in large bowl.
- Cut 1 cup pepperoni slices into quarters. Place half of the quarters in bowl with biscuit pieces. Add 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning to bowl with cut biscuits and pepperoni quarters; toss to mix.
- Place biscuit mixture as evenly as possible in bottom of slow-cooker insert. Spread 1 cup Muir Glen™ organic pizza sauce evenly over top of biscuits, making sure to get some sauce around edges so that biscuits are not touching insert without sauce in between.
- Sprinkle 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese and remaining half of pepperoni over top, trying to keep cheese away from touching insert.
- Cover top of insert with large paper towel. Place slow-cooker lid on top of paper towel. (This will prevent condensation from dripping onto biscuits during cooking.)
- Cook on High heat setting 1 hour 30 minutes to 2 hour. (Not all slow cookers cook the same. Test for doneness after 1 hour and 30 minutes by inserting knife into center to make sure biscuits are fully baked; outer edge will be dark golden brown.)
- Remove bubble-up bake from slow-cooker insert while warm to prevent biscuits from sticking to insert. Serve warm.
You won’t need to have your hands messy from eating the pizza after. And you won’t have to worry if you have had too many slices already as there are no slices to count. I promise you this bubble-up pizza will not disappoint you. So try it out now!
