With the start of the school year, I always find the weeks are packed full. Whether it’s getting back into the routine of things after summer break or it’s that extracurriculars are in full swing, one thing is for certain- life is busy right now! I try to keep meals simple, smart, and cost effective…especially when we are busy bees. I need dinners I can quickly throw together, but something that my family will enjoy and actually eat. So the other night when I tried out a new recipe, I was excited to see if this one would make the “cut.” Have you tried Grands! Pepperoni Pizza Bake?
Let me lay it out for you, peeps: 4 ingredients, under $10 for the meal, feeds 6, and takes about 30 minutes to prep and cook. That’s what I’m talkin’ about! And can we talk about how EASY this recipe is? My 5 year old was in on making this dinner and she could *almost* do it all herself (minus operating the oven). A dinner the kids can make? WINNING!
I adapted the original recipe slightly. I used Pillsbury Grands! Biscuits, turkey pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, and a four cheese spaghetti sauce. I also seasoned the casserole with pepper, garlic, and onion and when I pulled it out of the oven I added Parmesan cheese…all of which is optional.
Because I am gluten free, I wasn’t able to fully
enjoy this meal like I wanted to, but my daughter and husband practically licked their plates and the smell coming off the Grands! Pepperoni Pizza Bake was divine. I loved that this casserole was more like a “pull apart” pizza bread. Makes it more like a “snack” than a dinner and the kiddos are more apt to eat without complaints when it’s a “snack.” But who complains about anything PIZZA anyway? *NOT US!*
Which Pillsbury recipe are you excited to try first? Those Taco Melts look SUPER yummy…
I hope you had a great Friday and an even better weekend!
