  • 8 oz ground sausage
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 cups mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups Original Bisquick™ mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 jar (14 oz) pizza sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 oz)


  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Grease 13x9-inch pan.
  • 2
    Cook ground sausage in 10-inch skillet over medium heat until browned. Remove with slotted spoon onto paper towel to drain. Remove all but 2 tablespoons of the drippings from pan. Add diced onion, and cook until translucent but not browned. Add sliced mushrooms and salt, and cook until mushrooms are softened and onions are caramelized. Remove from heat.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix and water until soft dough forms. Drop half of the dough by spoonfuls into pan. Dough will not completely cover bottom of pan.
  • 4
    Spoon half of the pizza sauce over dough; sprinkle with half of the cheese, and scatter with half of the sausage mixture. Repeat layers with the rest of the dough, sauce, cheese and sausage mixture.

    Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until golden. Serve immediately.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    You can prepare this recipe in advance. Cover unbaked dish with plastic wrap, and refrigerate up to 24 hours. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes before baking.
  • tip 2
    If top of the bake browns too quickly, cover with foil for the rest of the bake time until cooked completely through.
  • tip 3
    To reheat, cover with foil to prevent it from drying out. Place in 325°F oven for 30 minutes.
