The Dizza: Half pizza, mostly donut, Homer Simpson-approved
In honor of The Simpsons' 500th episode, we've created our very own recipe that will trigger a Homer-esque comatose drooling fit faster than Bart can say, "I didn't do it!" Inspired by two of Homer's biggest obsessions (donuts and pizza), The Dizza is a mouthwatering donut pizza that will have the whole family saying "Mmmmm… Dizza."
- 1 roll Pillsbury Homestyle Butter Grands! biscuits
- Vegetable oil
- A small pack of flour
- 1 container Mama Francesca's pizza topping
- 1 container Ragu's pizza quick sauce
- 32 ounce bag mozzarella shredded cheese
- 1 small bag Hormel's pepperoni minis
- 1 box fully-cooked traditional bacon
Directions:First things first: Fry the donut. Pour enough vegetable oil in a large pot or deep frying pan so it allows the donut to float as it's frying.
Heat the oil on medium-high. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.Next, cover the biscuits in flour. Cut mini circles in the middle of the biscuit "D'oh!" Then toss those bad boys into the preheated oil (and by toss I mean carefully place. Unlike in cartoons, third degree burns don't magically disappear in the next scene.). Stay close by and be sure to flip the donut before it burns.
Once the donut is cooked through, begin building your pizza. Layer with sauce, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, bacon and whatever other toppings you so desire.
Place the donuts on a baking pan and in the preheated oven for seven minutes or until the cheese is melted.

Ay caramba! The biscuits have magically been transformed into a 50 percent pizza, mostly donut, Homer Simpson-approved masterpiece. The only thing missing is the beer. We recommend popping open a cold can of Duff and cramming your family on the couch just in time to catch The Simpsons' 500th episode this Sunday on Fox.
