Reviews for Tebow Family Pizza Pie
"I prepared this recently and we enjoyed it. It is easy to prepare and very filling. Perfect to serve to guests. I would rate this 5 stars. I recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor."
"Five stars for the ease of preparation and for the ability to customize to family preferences! I added mushrooms and onions to my ground chuck, but omitted the green pepper, as my husband doesn't care for them. Biscuits cooked perfectly. Great for lunch the next day too!"
"I wanted something warm & hearty for dinner...I did add some cubed pepperoni as well as some ground Italian sausage in place of some of the ground beef...was delicious, along w a small salad this makes a great dinner."
"This is so delicious, my whole family loved it!! You could add other pizza ingredients but I made just as is and it was great. Thanks so much for sharing, it's a keeper."
"Eh. I don't really know how this is rated 5 stars, I make pizza burgers like this but just with sloppy joe sauce and on white sandwich bread or buns that are better. I have made this twice thinking I just did something wrong the first time, but it tasted the same so I was not as impressed as everyone else. I also use cheddar cheese instead of mozzarella and it makes it so much better. I think the best way that I have ever made this was I made some garlic cheddar biscuit mix instead of the canned biscuits to put on the bottom, used 2 cans of diced tomatoes in garlic, basil, oregano instead of the tomato paste and added onions to a little bit of butter to caramelize them and then to the meat. I also added pepperoni's to the meat while it was frying and then placed it on top of the garlic cheddar bread mix and used some shredded Italian cheese on the top, but even just the sloppy joe sauce instead of the tomato paste and adding cheddar cheese on top still makes a better dish than this one."
"This has quickly become a favorite in my house. We sometimes add other pizza "toppings" such as pepperoni, sausage, or mushrooms for variety. My son Michael often requests this on game day!"
"This is a family favorite recipe... Today I repurposed this recipe. I made the filling, folded in the cheese. Then rolled about a tablespoon each into egg roll wrappers and pan fried. Home made pizza rolls! They were a huge hit with my 4yr old!"
"Just made this tonight, and it is delicious! I omitted the bell pepper because we're a little sensitive to it, but it was still a keeper. I'd also browned my ground beef ahead of time, so it cut my prep time tonight in half. We will definitely be having this one again!"
"I didn't really care for the filling. However, I really like the idea of the biscuit crust. It was really good. I would definitely make it again with the biscuit crust and my own toppings. Thanks for sharing!"
"We loved this. I used part of a jar of ragu sauce instead of the packet and water mixture. My husband and his uncle said it was actually better than take out pizza."
"I really liked this idea. I made ours with mushrooms added and pepperoni under the cheese. Next time I would probably use a can of bread dough or pizza dough and bake it a few minutes before putting the meat in. Having uncooked biscuits in your dinner is like Tim Tebow's professional football career--- not so great.This is a great idea, I would also say that you could use your own homemade or favorite purchased sauce instead of the mix/paste/water if you were so inclined. Maybe put some garlic butter/parmesan on the top "crust" part?"
"This was excellent!! Even my picky eater loved it! Followed recipe as written but added some chopped pepperoni on top of the crust before adding the meat mixture. I like my cheese gooey so I baked it first and added the cheese on for the last 5 minutes. Delicious!!!"
"Very easy & tasty. Will make again. Might add olives & mushrooms next time as my husband & I love them."
"My whole family absolutely enjoyed this!!"
"Delish, family approved for sure!!"
"This recipe is great! I made it tonight without the green pepper (husband hates them) and it was simple and delicious. From now on I am going to call it 'Tebow Pie' :)"
"This recipe is delicious! My family is waiting for me to make the next one!"
"Family LOVES this!"
"Thanks to Pam Tebow for sharing this recipe!!"
"This is so quick and easy to make. It's a great meal for a busy weeknight."
