Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup olive oil

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine first four ingredients; microwave, covered, on high for 30 seconds. Cool slightly.
Cut each biscuit into four pieces; add to oil mixture and toss to coat. Add cheeses and pepperoni; toss to combine. In a heavy 10-in. fluted tube pan coated with cooking spray, layer half of the biscuit mixture; drizzle with 1/4 cup marinara sauce. Repeat layers.

    "Mine turned out extremely gooey in the center; don't know what happened. I baked for 40 min at 350; will use a different baking dish next time. If I had left it in the oven any longer it would have burned. Turned out very pretty and everyone loved the parts that were cooked."

    "By the way this disappeared from the platter, it must have been a huge success... I didn't even get a bite as it was gone before I could grab some. I found it much easier to use a large plastic dish tub to mix the cut up dough pieces with the oil and other ingredients, and I used my hands instead of a spoon... I doubled the amount of pepperoni. cheese, and marinara, and added some tiny bits of diced onion and red bell pepper, and I had several other sauces available on the side. I provided a large serving fork to break away the pieces. I will make this again."

    "Yes, it is a lot of bread, but it's seasoned bread. I loved it, but unfortunately, family took one bite and made sandwiches instead. So, I won't be making this again. So sad. BTW, I did put more sauce in and I think that helped it not being so dry."

    "Originally made this for a playoff game potluck. Was a big hit! We put several different dipping sauces with it, so people could switch it up a bit (ranch, marinara, a few cheese sauces). Everyone was asking for the recipe! Kids and adults alike enjoyed this "alternative" to regular pizza!"
