Easy Bake Pizza
2 packages buttermilk or country biscuits (I use the Pillsbury brand - 7 1/2 oz)
1 small onion-chopped
1 greenpepper-chopped
1 jar prepared spaggetti sauce (14 oz.)
1 lb. bulk italian sausage
chop up any other "pizza" ingredients you may like, i.e. mushrooms, pepperoni, etc.
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese.

Pre-Heat the oven to 375 degrees and grease a 9X13 inch pan. In a skillet brown the sausage over medium low heat; while the meat is browning dice up the greenpepper, onion or your choice of ingredients.
Add the sauce and your pizza ingredients (onions, peppers, etc) to the skillet, cook for about 5 minutes. Turn off heat, set aside.
On a cutting board lay out your raw biscuit dough and cut each piece in 1/2. Take 1/2 of your batch of cut-up biscuits and layer in the bottom of your baking dish, (bottom won't be covered, rolls will expand while cooking). Layer over the biscuits 1/2 of the sauce mixture, then add 1 cup of the cheese. Place another layer of biscuits over this, layer with the sauce and cheese.
Bake at 375 for about 25 minutes. Serve.
