Sharon’s Biscuit Pizza

biscuit pizza

Here is my biscuit pizza crust can be whipped up quickly…and is very filling for hungry teenagers.  We normally have this when only a couple of the children are at home. It serves 4, but could easily be doubled to serve 8.  Any leftovers can be saved in the fridge and reheated the next day.

Biscuit Pizza

Yield – 4 8″ pizzas
Preparation Time - 15 minutes
Cooking Time - 12 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 cups flour  ($.56) (biscuit dough)
  • 1 t. salt  (biscuit dough)
  • 2 t. baking powder ($.16) (biscuit dough)
  • 2/3 cup vegetable shortening ($ .62) (biscuit dough)
  • 1 1/2 cups milk  ($.27) (biscuit dough)
  • 1 28 oz. can plain tomato sauce  ($1)
  • 3 8 oz. bags of shredded mozzarella cheese ($5.97)
  • Plus favorite pizza toppings

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Mix together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Add the vegetable shortening. Use a fork or pastry cutter to press shortening into the flour mixture, until it resembles course crumbs. Add milk. Stir. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface.
  • Cut biscuit dough into four equal sections.
  • Roll out one of the doughs into a flat, circular shape, around 8″.
  • Place dough onto a cookie sheet or round cake pan. Pre-cook for 2 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, top with sauce and cheese and whatever else you like.  (I use 3/4 of a bag of cheese for each pizza.)
  • Bake for around 10 minutes, or until cheese is bubbling and center of the crust has cooked through.
  • Repeat with the rest of the dough.

Cost $8.58

My mother-in-law gave me a similar recipe as part of a wedding recipe book, but mine is made in a jelly-roll pan deep-dish style. A favorite for dinner, but too much for my husband and I when there are no kiddos at home. I never thought of doing it like this, but I’m gonna give this a try!

Anything with ‘pizza’ AND ‘biscuit’ in the title is a sure hit! Thank you.

I love biscuit pizzas. I actually like buying those really cheap, not so amazing, canned biscuits (like the ones that are almost rockhard when you cook them appropriately, are tiny, and no layers…for like $.35 a can). They’re great for flattening out for quick mini pizzas.
