Tebow Family Pizza Pie

A Tim Tebow favorite, this recipe is quick and easy - it uses refrigerated buttermilk biscuit dough for the crust! —Pam Tebow, Jacksonville, FL
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min.
  • Makes
    6 servings


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 envelope Italian-style spaghetti sauce mix
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tube (12 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


  • In a large skillet, cook and stir beef and pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the sauce mix, tomato paste and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 7-10 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally.
  • Separate biscuits; press onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9-in. deep-dish pie plate to form a crust. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese; fill with meat mixture.
  • Sprinkle mozzarella cheese and remaining Parmesan cheese over top. Bake at 400° for 15-18 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.

    Yum! Yum! Perfect for family with kids definitely. Followed others' rec to prebake the biscuits. They do fluff up quite a bit and we were nervous there would not be room for all our toppings (added mushroom, red onions and olives) but the biscuits flattened out nicely once the toppings went on it.

    I made this for my family tonight. It was so good. I have 2 growing boys, so this was right up their alley. I as well prebaked the biscuits. Making it this way not only worked a lot better but the biscuits were cooked all the way and not raw dough. This is definitely going to be a keeper for our family.

    I'll never order out pizza again! Fabulous recipe. Don't hesitate to try it. I layered pepperoni and sliced fresh mushrooms on top of the meat mixture and then sprinkled the parmesan cheese and topped it with the mozzarella. I pre baked the biscuit crust sprinkled with parmesan for 10 minutes before filling it. I suggest letting it stand and set up a bit after removing from oven and cutting the pie. I just can't say enough good things about this recipe. Diane Michigan

    it is best to prebake the crust if you are worried about it getting done. I make another recipe called Colossal cheeseburger which uses crescent rolls for the bottom. It seems like if I don't get it in exactly the right position in the oven the bottom crust doesn't get done. It is definitely worth a try! Always love an easy meal for the family! PS I have a top crust on the other dinner pie I make and if the bottom crust doesn't seem done I cover the top with foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes an avoid the top curst edge getting too dark.

    Whenever I make a recipe that uses canned biscuits as a crust I bake them first until almost done, then proceed with the recipe. This was no different and it came out fine. I used Italian sausage instead of ground beef and added black olives and some red onion. Came out tasty! We enjoyed it with a green veggie salad.

    I don't know what to think, maybe we just got unlucky; the biscuit "crust" didnt cook completely, and presented as a mucousy, raw, phlegm-like sludge at the bottom of the pie. Plus, it gave three of us watery explosive diahrrea soon thereafter!

    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.
