What is bubble pizza?

Bubble pizza is fun to say out loud and even more fun to make.

The biscuit pieces are covered with sauce, cheese, meat and toppings and then baked in a casserole pan to golden perfection. It may not look like traditional pizza, but it’s sure to satisfy a family dinner, hungry grandchildren or a big crowd.

Bubble pizza has become a recent food obsession on social media platforms such as TikTok. Check out this video tutorial below:

The benefits of using biscuits


It’s easy to love biscuits. They’re light and fluffy on the inside, crispy on the outside and bursting with buttery, salty flavor. Biscuits come prepared in many ways: topped with gravy or fruit jam, made into a breakfast sandwich or paired with fried chicken. But using them as pizza dough? Turns out, it’s an easy and delicious short-cut with an even tastier pizza crust. (For buttery biscuit recipes, click through for 2-Ingredient Biscuits and Homemade Popeye’s Strawberry Biscuits.)

A staple of Southern cuisine, biscuits are a flour-based baked bread made with baking powder instead of yeast. Because of this, they are a type of quick bread, meaning they don’t need time to rise before baking.

So, what makes biscuits great for pizza? “Biscuit dough is an interesting alternative to pizza dough because it is so much more buttery and flakey in texture,” says Claire Rifkin, MS, RDN, a woman’s health dietitian at Claire Rifkin Nutrition, LLC. She explains that baking soda or powder “create a soft and tender crumb that can contribute to the ‘cloud’ or ‘bubble’ like texture this trend is going viral for.” Additionally, “because biscuits are typically made with butter and pizza dough is made with oil, there is a rich buttery flavor profile.”

Tips for making bubble pizza

Trying out this recipe for the first time? Don’t worry, we’ve got some expert-approved tips from Woman’s World Food Director Julie Miltenberger, who shares how to make the best bubble pizza.

1. Cut biscuits with kitchen shears

Instead of a knife, “use kitchen shears to cut up your biscuits,” says Mittenberger. “Simply spritz the blades with nonstick cooking spray to keep them from sticking.”

2. Personalize toppings

Feeding a crowd? Miltenberger suggests “personaliz[ing] the toppings to your crew: Add pepperoni to one section and crumbled sausage and peppers to another, then let guests pick and choose their perfect portion.”

3. Use pre-made biscuit dough

Bubble pizza is meant to be a quick, no-fuss meal, and that’s why using a can of pre-made dough is best. If you want to make your own, check out our favorite recipe for flaky biscuits.

4. Storing bubble pizza

To save some pizza for later, it’s easy to store it. Just place an air-tight lid or tightly wrap aluminum foil overtop the casserole dish and store in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days. Click to learn how to reheat pizza in an air fryer so it stays crispy.
