    • Grease a 9×13 baking pan with cooking spray or butter. Transfer the mixture into the prepared pan.
  7. Top with Cheese and Pepperoni:
    • Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella cheese over the top of the mixture. If desired, add pepperoni slices for an extra meaty flavor.
  8. Bake:
    • Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 30 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown and cooked through.

Note: This recipe can easily be customized to suit your family’s preferences. Feel free to add your favorite pizza toppings, such as diced bell peppers, onions, or olives. If you prefer a meatless option, simply omit the ground beef and pepperoni, and add more vegetables or your favorite meat substitute

here are some tips to make your Meaty Pizza Bubble Bake even more delicious:

  1. Customize the Sauce: Experiment with different flavors of spaghetti sauce or add your favorite herbs and spices to enhance the sauce’s taste. You can also make your own homemade pizza sauce for a personalized touch.
  2. Add Vegetables: Sneak in some veggies for added nutrition and flavor. Bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, and olives work well. Ensure they are diced small to cook evenly.
  3. Cheese Variety: Mix different types of cheese for a more complex flavor. Consider adding Parmesan or cheddar along with the mozzarella. You can even use a blend of Italian cheeses for an authentic taste.
  4. Spice it Up: If your family enjoys a bit of heat, consider adding red pepper flakes or a pinch of cayenne to the sauce for a spicy kick.
  5. Fresh Herbs: Toss in some fresh herbs like basil, oregano, or parsley for a burst of freshness. Add them just before baking for the best flavor.
  6. Prevent Biscuit Sticking: To prevent the biscuit pieces from sticking together, lightly coat them with flour before mixing them with the sauce and meat.
  7. Layering Technique: Layer the biscuit mixture evenly in the pan to ensure even cooking. Press it down gently to avoid air pockets.
  8. Cooking Time: Keep an eye on the baking time and adjust if needed. If the top is browning too quickly but the biscuits need more time, cover the dish with foil for the remaining baking time.
  9. Serve with Dipping Sauce: Consider serving the Meaty Pizza Bubble Bake with a side of marinara or garlic butter for dipping.
  10. Reheating: When reheating leftovers, use an oven or toaster oven instead of a microwave. This helps maintain the crispy texture of the biscuits.
  11. Make it Ahead: You can prepare the Meaty Pizza Bubble Bake ahead of time and refrigerate it until you’re ready to bake. Just ensure that the biscuits are not too soggy before baking.
  12. Experiment with Toppings: Feel free to get creative with the toppings. Try different types of cured meats, or even experiment with a layer of thinly sliced tomatoes or a sprinkle of grated Parmesan on top.

Remember, cooking is an art, and these tips are just suggestions. Feel free to adapt the recipe to suit your family’s taste preferences and make it your own
