Biscuit Mini Pizzas {Kid-friendly recipe}

mini-biscuit-pizza-recipe

My kids love pizza. Whether it’s delivered, grilled, frozen, homemade dough, deli-fresh dough. . .they don’t really discriminate, they love pizza. This week we tried something new – mini pizzas with Pillsbury Grands! Flaky Biscuits. It was so incredibly easy, it’s a little ridiculous. You can literally have these done in under 15 minutes. And if you’re fast with the prep, I dare you to get ‘er done in 13 minutes. 🙂 Did I mention they were easy?

My disclaimer – I’m not pretending they are healthy. Their redeeming quality is that that they are easy. Inexpensive. Fast. And actually taste pretty good.

INGREDIENTS

Pillsbury Grands! Flaky Biscuits
You can almost always find coupons for these, check the coupon database
If you prefer, make your own pizza dough with this recipe or Pillsbury makes a pizza crust, but it’s almost never included on sales like the biscuits.

Pizza Sauce or just tomato sauce

Oregano or Italian Seasoning

Mozzarella Cheese

Pepperoni

What other toppings you like
Our favorites are black olives, basil, mushrooms, spinach

HOW TO PREPARE

1.) Preheat oven according to instructions on biscuit package. Mine said 375 degree F

2.) Open the can of refrigerated biscuits. Using clean hands, stretch out the biscuits to make them flatter – about 6-inches across. If you had the time and patience – have the kids help! Work on a surface away from the preheating oven and have them help make their own. 

3.) Spread out onto cookie sheet. I could fit six to a cookie sheet. Which left me with two “extras” that I put into mini heart-shaped spring form pans (see similar product on Amazon).

4.) Put about one spoonful of pizza sauce on each crust. Spread around. Sprinkle with italian seasoning (some sauces come pre-seasoned).

5.) Add cheese and other toppings

6.) Pop in the oven and check after 10 minutes. Bake until golden brown and cheese is melted!

I was busy blogging so I didn’t pull them out until 12-13 minutes and some corners were a little well done. 🙂

Heart-Single-Serve-pizza

I “love” how the heart shaped ones turned out. Because they had a springform edge, I put more cheese on these – they were thicker pizzas. I think this would be a cute idea for Valentine’s day and I wonder, because of the edge, if you could layer them. . . . may have to try this at a later date!

If you’re a fan of thick-crust pizza you’ll love these. And they still have the flaky factor. If you prefer thinner crust you can either roll them out thinner (make bigger pizzas) or try and pull the layers apart. I didn’t try this, so I’m not sure exactly how it would work.

My kids approved! I hope yours do, too.
