Quick Pizza Casserole Recipe - bisquick, pizza sauce, cheese, pepperoni, sausage - takes minutes to mix together - ready in 30 minutes! Great change to pizza night!

Hello everyone! My name is Stephanie, and I blog at PlainChicken.com. I like to say Plain Chicken is anything BUT plain chicken! I make quick and easy recipes, most of which are ready in under 30 minutes. I am super excited to share a super quick and easy recipe with you today! It is a twist on my all-time favorite food, pizza!!!

We eat pizza at least once a week in our house. I am always looking for a new twist to keep pizza night interesting. This pizza casserole was a nice change. It was quick and easy to make. The kids could even help make this for dinner.

Fill the casserole with your favorite pizza toppings. I used sausage and pepperoni. Next time I might do a veggie pizza casserole with green peppers, onions, olives and mushrooms. Get creative! The possibilities are endless! You could even use alfredo sauce in place of the pizza sauce.

If you are looking to cut back on fat and calories you could use Heart Healthy Bisquick,low fat milk, turkey sausage, turkey pepperoni. You can even make this gluten-free with the new Gluten-Free Bisquick mix. Either way, it will be delicious!
