Meals ~ October 12 – 18 ~Bubble Pizza

Last week was busy as usual. Andrew was nominated for Homecoming King, so we had lots of activities going on, besides our normal busy lives. Every Thursday, I cook something, usually dessert for the Football Team. This week, with all the talk of a baking day on Twitter, I decided to combine my baking day along with my team baking. Even though my baking day didn’t go quite as planned, I was able to get some bake goods done for the boys, including the Pumpkin Cookies, which were a big hit.

I’ve decided to highlight one recipe during my Meal Plan each week.  When I posted by October Meal Plan, I had several comments on the Bubble Pizza that I had scheduled. And since it’s on the plan for this week, I will share the recipe with you.

Update: This was a hit at our house, quick, easy and frugal meal. I used sausage instead of hamburger. And I’ve changed the picture above to include the Bubble Pizza I made.

Cook’s Note:  I found this recipe in my Taste of Home Fun Food magazine. I haven’t made it yet, but it sounded like a good Fri. night meal. I will probably substitute sausage for the ground beef, but you could add whatever pizza topping you like. I will also be using my Homemade Pizza Sauce. I have included the prices for the ingredients, and include this meal with my Money Saving Aldi’s Meals. (the picture is from Taste of Home)


  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef  (sausage $1.79)
  • 1 can (15 oz) pizza sauce   (homemade $.40)
  • 2 tubes (12 oz. each) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits ($.76)
  • 1 1/2 c. shredded mozzerella cheese ($1.14)
  • 1 c. shredded cheddar cheese  ($.73)

Total for meal from Aldi’s  $4.82


In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink, drain. Stir in pizza sauce. Cut each biscuit into quarters, place in a greased 13×9 pan. Top with beef mixture.

Bake uncovered at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with cheeses. Bake 5-10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
