Any biscuits will work for Pillsbury biscuit pizza casserole: homestyle, flaky, buttermilk, etc. Whichever kind you use, be sure to cut each into 8 equal pieces so everything bakes evenly.
Mini pepperoni slices would be great with the bite-sized biscuits, but if you can’t find them at the store, regular is fine! The regular pepperoni slices are cheaper and could be sliced in half. You could also use cooked sausage or add your favorite pizza toppings like black olives, mushrooms, green peppers, or onions.
Use your favorite pizza sauce or even make your own. This recipe is so easy to alter to your tastes. Think about adding some parmesan cheese!
