Make It a Meal Monday: Football Food

Two things make fall great– pumpkin and football. Yesterday most of the country got to enjoy their teams playing but us Eagles fan have to wait until tonight.

Hazel’s ready for the game too!

Seriously, 90 percent of the country got to stuff their faces with pumpkin related food while watching their teams play. We have to wait until tonight. But back to the point of this post– food. We love having people over to watch the games and we love feeding those people (especially if they bring us beer) but we don’t need to have guests over to gorge ourselves on food during a football game.

Which brings me today’s meal– Popup Pizza.  I’ve made this dish, not for a football game but a Pizza Monday celebration where it was a massive hit.  The recipe hits most of my criteria:

  • Is it semi-easy to make?
  • Is it good
  • Does Hazel like it?

Popup Pizza can be as elaborate or as simple as you choose. Now on to the recipe!

What you will need

Popup pizza recipe

  • 2 cans of biscuits
  • 1 Jar of tomato sauce
  • 2 cups of mozzarella cheese
  • Any desired pizza toppings

1. Open the cans of biscuits, and quarter each biscuit. I recommend opening one can and cutting all the biscuits before opening the second can. I also recommend cutting only one biscuit at a time, I attempted to cut two at a time but they started merging together.

Side note: I used the whole wheat reduced fat biscuits and it turned out great. I understand this meal isn’t very healthy but I like to try when I can such as with lighter biscuits and 2% mozzarella cheese.

2. Open the jar of sauce and pour it over the quartered biscuits. Mix.

3. Add a half cup of cheese to the biscuits and mix. If you have other pizza toppings you want to add, this is when you can add them.

4. Lightly spray a 9×13 dish and dump all the quartered biscuits. Evenly spread the mixture in the dish.

Side note: I didn’t realize Hazel photobombed the picture as I was taking it. Thought you’d enjoy seeing my little food stalker.
