Pull up a chair friends because I’ve got an interesting pizza casserole recipe that I created that I thought would be a good fit for busy summer fun.  You can make this ahead and pop it in the oven when you’re ready to use it.  I generally make it on a Friday evening and Saturday when my home is as busy as the grand central station, I just pop it in the oven and voila, lunch is ready.

Have you tasted Domino’s parmesan bites recently? They’re to die for. For my moc recipe, they can be made with a dash of Parmesan and Asiago cheeses (can’t always find this one) along with garlic, butter, parsley and even more Parmesan cheese. If you haven’t tried them, you must. Because I want you to see just how close my Domino’s parmesan bites recipe is to the real deal. They’re going to make up my pizza crust for my pizza casserole. How delish does that sound?

The best part about this recipe is that you can make it as cheap and easy as you want to. I’ve used 2 toppings, and, I’ve used up to 10 toppings. It’s up to you as to what you have on hand (including leftovers) or what you want to spend on toppings.

Okay dudes and dudettes, get on your aprons and let’s start cooking. First, we are going to gather all of our ingredients from the lists below. I’m a dreadfully boring, organized cooker. Ingredients must be in front of me before I start with any recipe.

First, we have to make the pizza crust for the Domino’s parmesan bites. I use a simple 2 ingredient pizza crust recipe for the base of these bites.

Ingredients

Self Rising Flour
1 Cup of Yogurt

That’s it. The reason I like this recipe is that we’re a house full of females and we all know that yogurt contains acidophilus, a beneficial bacteria needed for women. I’m not going to get into why because this is, after all, a recipe and I don’t want you to get distracted from the masterpiece you’re fixing to create.

Once we’ve done that, we can add the good stuff, parmesan cheese, and asiago cheese. If you are having difficulty finding asiago cheese, no worries. You can just use more parmesan cheese as a fit substitute. You could also buy pecorino romano or dry jack cheese to replace it. I use what I have on hand and I ALWAYS have Parmesan Cheese.

Ingredients

Parmesan Cheese
Asiago Cheese
Garlic
Parsley
Butter

Next, we’ll focus on the casserole itself. We like a few ingredients on our pizza but plan to make the casserole with whatever pizza toppings your family most enjoys I generally use what I have on hand when at all possible, even using up leftovers in it. I keep in mind, meat and veggies. If you’re vegan, you can stick to just veggies and leave off the ravioli.

Ingredients

Ravioli or noodles of any type (when in doubt, lasagna noodles work well)
Pizza Sauce

Now that we have our ingredients laid out with easy access, give yourself a pat on the back because your family is going to rave over my Cheap And Easy Pizza Casserole Recipe.

Let’s start at the beginning. Preheat your oven to 450 for the melt in your mouth Domino’s Parmesan Bites recipe. Starting with our 2 ingredient pizza dough, we are going to add half flour and half yogurt. I recommend starting with 1 cup of each. Leave out some flour for kneading.

1 Cup Self Rising Flour
1 Cup Plain Yogurt

Combine the ingredients until well blended then place on a lightly floured surface. Knead until the dough starts feeling right. Then use a tablespoon sized amount to make the balls. Add them to your casserole dish. Once you’ve rolled the balls out, add the good stuff on top of them. Alternately, you can turn the pizza dough into pizza dough by rolling it to fit in your casserole dish.

1/4 Cup of Parmesan Cheese
Asiago Cheese (I skipped this one)
1 Clove of Garlic or 1 teaspoon minced garlic
Parsley Flakes for topping. I was out so I used fresh Cilantro. Just a sprinkle will do.
1/2 Cup of Butter (melted)

Combine all of these ingredients and brush or pour on pizza dough balls in your dish. We are going to add the other ingredients to top these so make sure it’s big enough. Pop in the oven for about 10 minutes.

Open 2 small cans of ravioli or boil 1/2 box of noodles of any type. When the noodles are done, add 1 jar of pizza sauce. Stir, mix, mix, stir. If using Ravioli, you won’t need any pizza sauce.

2 Cans of Ravioli or your Favorite Noodles (1/2 box)
1 Jar Pizza Sauce (only if using noodles)

While that is cooking, dice or slice all of the veggies you plan to add to your pizza casserole as toppings.

Reduce oven to 350. Add your Ravioli or noodles with pizza sauce (start with a half a cup) on top of the parmesan bites.

Then pepperoni.

Now for the final layer which are the veggie toppings. Everything should be washed before use. My recommended toppings are as follows… keep in mind, this is just a guide and you should use only what your family will eat.

Mozzarella Cheese
Parmesan Cheese
Bell Peppers
Onions
Black Olives
Pepperoni
Tomatoes

Add your toppings including the cheese, unless you like your toppings well done, and pop the casserole dish back in the oven. Your oven should be set at 350 by this stage, as mentioned above. Bake for approximately 20 minutes. Start checking it at 20 minutes but depending on the size of your casserole dish, it could take a little more time. The kids don’t like onions and broccoli in their casserole so I fry some onions using and steam a little broccoli to add to mine after it’s finished.

Serve with a nice crisp salad, jalapeno poppers, and garlic bread. What toppings do you enjoy on your pizza?
