Like most other homes, pizza night is a favorite in our house. When I can, I like to make it from scratch, which always involves making the dough and waiting for the rise. But the truth is that sometimes I just don’t have time to wait for the rise, and for those hectic days this homemade pizza bake is an easy and tasty choice.
To get started, gather your ingredients and heat the oven to 375°F. Next, grease a 13x9-inch pan.
You’ll first want to cook the ground sausage in 10-inch skillet over medium heat until browned. Once the sausage is done remove it from the pan (using a slotted spoon) and onto a paper towel to drain.
Next, remove all but 2 tablespoons of the drippings from pan. Add the diced onion, and cook until translucent but not browned. Add sliced mushrooms and salt, then cook until mushrooms are softened and onions are caramelized. Remove from heat.
In a medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix and water until soft dough forms. To build your pizza bake you’ll begin by dropping half of the dough by the spoonful into the greased pan. Please note that the dough will not completely cover the bottom of the pan. Next, spoon half of the pizza sauce over the dough; sprinkle with half of the cheese and half of the sausage mixture. Repeat layers in the same order using the rest of the dough, sauce, cheese and sausage mixture.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until golden and serve immediately.
