Meals ~ October 12 – 18 ~Bubble Pizza

Jump to recipe!

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.
