At the ripe age of 14, I discovered my favorite food to prepare, Pizza Bubble Bread. This is not at all my favorite food to eat. But, start to finish you are consuming hot grub in less than ten minutes. This relates to summer in that the meal is prepared in your microwave, therefore not heating further your already toasty abode. I learned this recipe at Fred Moore Middle School during Home Ec Class. I’ve been a part of many conversations with former Fred Moorians regarding Pizza Bubble Bread. The conversations are short and boring, but they existed. Everyone appears to remember the funky food with fond memories. Ladies and gentlemen, let’s make Pizza Bubble Bread!
Four ingredients! You probably don’t even need to write them down…Pizza Sauce, Mozzarella Cheese, Pepperoni, and Pillsbury biscuit dough. (The small ones, not the Grands). You will also need a medium sized bowl (make sure it fits in your microwave) and a very small bowl/cup/I-used-a-ceramic-shot-glass to place inside and upside down in the bowl.
This is your pizza/bread pan. Make sure it is not made of any metal. Please don’t make me tell you why.
Here’s the best part: Open the roll of biscuits. POP! Whee! OK, the fun is over and it’s business time. Cut each biscuit into fourths.
Dip each piece of dough into the pizza sauce and arrange evenly on the bottom of the bowl.
Now it’s time to nuke. Three minutes in the microwave on high.
Take the super-hot-don’t-burn-your-fingers bowl out of the microwave and add all that cheese and pepperoni. Then pop it back in the microwave for another three minutes.
And it’s time. Eat and enjoy this white trash classic meal with a plastic cup of grape soda and for dessert, Ding Dongs. Mmm…can’t beat that. If anyone tries this, let me know. Or better, send me photos to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post them here.
I’ll have to try that. It looks pretty tasty.
Just one question. Why do you have to put a small shot glass upside down in the bowl?
Things in the center of the microwave do not cook the same.
I heard that about the tempermental nature of microwaves. But grape soda and Ding Dongs? How about and orange whip and some strawberry Twinkies?
Or DJD’s fave, RC Cola and Moon Pies 😉
I was wondering about the shot glass in the center, too, but that makes sense. My cooking skills max out at making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, but this may be simple enough for me not to screw up.
It was a recipe designed for impatient 8th graders, I bet you’ll do fine 🙂
