Everyone loves pizza, but kids REALLY love pizza. As an adult I’m like, “I guess I’ll just do pizza for dinner.” But as a child, I was like, “YEEEESSSSS IT’S PIZZA NIGHT! THIS IS THE BEST NIGHT OF MY LIFE!”

This meal is definitely one that your kids will love! Not only do they get to eat pizza (or in their minds, the greatest food ON THE PLANET), but it’s a fun single serve size! And it’s so easy to make, your little chef can actually help you in the kitchen! It’s like they get all the fun and experience of stretching and smushing homemade pizza crust, but it’s just biscuit dough! Genius! Since everyone can make their own individual pizzas, each family member can put only the toppings they want. No more kids complaining about onions and peppers, and no more adults complaining about how boring plain cheese pizza is.

My one complaint about this dish is that the biscuit dough REALLY soaked up the sauce. So it was a little dry. Originally I used 1 cup of pizza sauce, but I put 1 1/2 cups in the recipe because I really think it’d make it better. Use your own judgement and make it fit your own taste!

Mini Biscuit Pizzas

Yields: 8 servings

Serving Size: 1 pizza

Mini Biscuit Pizzas

Ingredients

  • 1 can Grands Homestyle Biscuits
  • 1 1/2 cups of pizza sauce (homemade or store bought)
  • 2 cups shredded Italian Blend cheese
  • toppings of choice (pepperoni, sausage, veggies, chicken, anything!)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a cookie sheet or pizza pan with nonstick cooking spray. (I didn't have a cookie sheet big enough for all 8 biscuits, so I had to use 2)
  2. Flatten each biscuit out on pan until they are 6 inches in diameter. Spread a layer of pizza sauce onto each biscuit. (the biscuits really absorb the sauce, so it's ok if you go a little heavy.)
  3. Sprinkle 1 Tablespoon shredded Italian Blend cheese onto each biscuit. Top with your toppings of choice. Sprinkle an additional 3 tablespoons Italian Blend cheese onto each pizza.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees for 7-10 minutes, until biscuits are golden brown on edges and cheese is bubbly. Serve immediately.

  1. I usually do all these steps using regular flour tortillas..though I really like the idea of a mini size self rising crust (like mini digiornos lol) I’m definitely going to try this!

  2. This pizza recipe really looks good. When I lived in the Middle East as a child my mom use to make something like but with pita bread.

  3. My four year old & I just popped these bad boys in the oven. They have less then 30secs to go! He was so excited to make these. We had fun eating the cheese and pepperoni. Thanks for the recipe

      How sweet! I’m sure he loved cooking with you! Hope y’all enjoy eating the pizzas as much as making them together 🙂

  4. I used to make these all the time for supper with my granddaughters. They loved them. I’m thinking it’s time to try them again. Thanks for the reminder.

  5. Made these in 7th grade Home Ec. Doing them as an add-on for a bible study pot luck. The dinner theme in ‘Italian’.

      Hi Nikki. Obviously, it would make the pizzas half as big (maybe about 3 inches in diameter instead of 6), but if that’s what you’re going for, I don’t think that’s a bad thing! Also, the biscuit dough tends to shrink back up when you flatten it out, so it might make it challenging to flatten. I’d recommend letting the dough warm to room temp before smushing and flattening so it doesn’t have so much elasticity. If you give it a try, let us know how it turns out!

      I’ve never tried it so I don’t know for sure, but I think it would be fine! If you try it, please let us know how it turns out!

      • Just popped them in the freezer until tomorrow for my sons birthday ! I will update and let y’all know how they turn out !!
