Easy Mini Pizzas (Using Biscuit Dough)

Now that we’re eating three meals a day every single day at home, I’ve been trying to come up with some new ideas for what to feed our picky, picky kiddos for lunch.  We’ve had sandwiches, chicken nuggets, hot dogs, and fish sticks on repeat, so when Brian suggested making these mini pizzas for lunch one day to change it up, I couldn’t say yes fast enough!  These are quick and easy, so you can make them for lunch as well as dinner, and the kids love them because they’re just so tiny and cute!  Oh, and the biscuit crust… yes, please!

Use It

Baking sheet

Buy It

1 can biscuits (we use the standard size, not the Grand’s, but you could use those, too)
1 jar pizza sauce
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1 package pepperoni
1 tsp. basil

Make It

1.    Preheat oven to temperature recommended on the biscuit can.
2.    Spray baking sheet with Pam.
3.    Press each biscuit into the baking sheet until it’s nice and flat.  The biscuits will act as the pizza crust, so the thinner you press them, the crunchier your crust will be.  When you’re done, you should have 8-10 mini pizza crusts, depending on how many biscuits are in your can.  (Ours makes 10.)
4.    Spoon pizza sauce onto each mini pizza crust.
5.    Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over the pizza sauce.
6.    Place pepperoni on top.
7.    Sprinkle basil on each of the pizzas.
8.    Bake at the temperature and time recommended on your biscuit can.

These are ready in minutes and they’re so delicious!  You could obviously add and subtract toppings to your liking… green peppers and black olives would be an easy way to make them a bit healthier, and you could even do fresh basil instead of dried to make them a little fancier.  The best part about these is that the buttery biscuit crust is even more delicious than traditional pizza crust, so our kiddos eat every single bite… no crust left behind!

  4. YUM! These sound delicious! My mom used to make mini pizzas with bagels or english muffins - love the idea of switching it up with biscuit dough!

  5. These look easy Peezy and oh so delicious! My boys will love them! I’ll have to double or triple the batch LOL

  6. Sometimes I feel like I'm losing my mind....I literally read puzzle instead of pizza at first and was like "oh cool she cut their pizza into a puzzle" What is wrong with me?!! crazy lately. I made homemade pizza last week and it was such a nice change. That may be on our list today!

  7. We totally use frozen Rhodes bread dough as our pizza crust!

  8. What a great idea! My girls eat frozen mini pizzas all the time but this would be a fun way to let them help make them!

  9. So easy and yummy! I usually do mine on a corn tortilla, but biscuits would be a great change up!

  10. These look amazing and so delicious!! I'm totally making them!

  11. YUM! I have been making dough since we have been home and we have made homemade pizza twice!

  12. I am making homemade pizzas tonight, so I will get some biscuits and make these in a few days for the kids lunch. They will LOVE them!

  13. I love this idea!! It's amazing how versatile biscuit dough can be. I use it for so many things other than biscuits!

    1. Yes it can! And I actually like the biscuit crust better than traditional because they're just so yummy and soft and buttery!
