I won’t pretend I invented using Pillsbury Grands as mini pizzas. If you Google it you will find a variety of recipes and pictures. In fact Jason introduced me to a similar idea the other weekend. He uses the biscuits to make sloppy joe pockets and one time smashed all the pieces together to make a large pizza sheet. I
was lazy got creative and made mini pizzas instead.
Pillsbury Grands! Mini Pizzas
What you will need:
- 1 can Pillsbury Grands! (8 count biscuit)
- 1 jar pizza sauce
- 2 cups shredded cheese
- Toppings: I used black olives, green pepper, and banana pepper
- Preheat oven to 350 degree F
- Open the can of Grands! and pull each of the 8 biscuits apart so you have 16 servings (spread the dough for a larger pizza or leave as-is for a fluffy crust)
- Place each biscuit onto a cookie sheet or other oven safe dish (I used my Stoneware large bar pan from Pampered Chef)
- Using a spoon, measure out pizza sauce onto each of the biscuits (I used about 1 tablespoon per biscuit)
- Finish each pizza with cheese and desired toppings
- Bake for 25-30 minutes (I like a light and fluffy crust, some recipes call for 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes for a more “golden” crust)
I knew these would be yummy, but I forgot HOW yummy. A serving should be about 2 pieces, the night I made them I chowed down on 5 before I knew what I was doing!
I LOVE the ease of using the biscuits as the dough. I used southern style because all the other varieties have palm oil. So, I can’t comment on the differences in flavors for the other types of dough
Overall I think this took me about 10-20 minutes to prep and that was because I needed to open cans and prep the green pepper. Another 25 to bake and then an easy cool off. A VERY quick meal
Consider doing this for other easy meals. Like I mentioned above, ground beef + sloppy joe sauce + cheese = a fun variety on “pizza”
Have you made mini pizzas with Grands before? Do you think you will now?
BTW a bit of housekeeping as it may be called. My Earth Fare contest is over. There were 16 entries and lucky #11 was the winner. I’ve reached out to Christen and hopefully will hear back shortly with mailing info.
