Do you love pizza, but hate waiting for the delivery boy? If so, do you like to cook? Here is an Instructable on how to make delicious biscuit pizza, with basically half the time it takes to order it!

Step 1: Ingredients...

Picture of Ingredients...

Here is what you will need...

1 pan

1 oven

1 can of biscuits, thawed to room temp.

1 jar of Ragu pizzaquick pizza sauce

1 bag of shredded pizza cheese

1 bag of pepperoni slices

About 2 cups of flour, in a bowl.

Step 2: Pre-heating the Oven and Making the Crust...

First off, preheat the oven to required temperature as instructed on biscuit package. Mine was preheated to 350 degrees, since just about everything cooks at 350 degrees.

Here's the tricky part... Spreading out the biscuits.

First, take the biscuit patty and drop it in the flour, making sure to leave no sticky parts. Then, starting from the center and pushing out toward the ends, spread the biscuit into a flat, thin crust with even pressure. As you do, stop to dip it in the flour again, to make sure it wont stick. If it is too thick, then when you eat the pizza it will taste more like biscuits than pizza. You dont want that, unless you just like it like that. Be sure to take your time on this one. Rushing through will more than likely cause you to break the crust.

Once you do that, its time to take out the Ragu and start spreading some sauce!

Step 3: Adding the Sauce...

Take out a spoon and get about 1 1/2 spoonfuls of pizza sauce. Pour it onto the center of the crust and spread it evenly, leaving the ends alone. Once you are happy with it, proceed to next step.

If you want saucier pizza, add more sauce as desired.

Step 4: Adding the Toppings...

Take out the pepperoni slices and cheese and sprinkle the cheese around on the pizza evenly. Then, grab about 4-5 pepperoni slices on the pizza. If desired, you can also put other toppings on it, such as.......


-COOKED sausages

-Chunks of pineapple




.....or anything that you may want on a pizza. Basically, if you can dream it, you can put it on a pizza.

Step 5: Throw It in the Oven!

By now, the oven should be already be heated. Take the pizzas and put them on the pan. Then, set it in the center rack of the oven and close the oven door.

Step 6: 20 Minutes Later...

Cook it for about 15-20 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and cheese topping is melted.

Step 7: Take Out, Cut, and Enjoy!

Once it is done cooking, take it out using oven mitts(you wouldnt want to get burned! :)) and let it cool. Then, put it on a plate and enjoy!


You can also cut it into slices, if you wish. Put the pizza onto a cutting board, and just take a pizza cutter or knife and cut it down the center.

Man, that looks really good!

think one could knead a few biscuts together and get a full sized crust? I'm about to give this a shot.

Uh... Yeah! Go ahead! It should work. There are some biscuits that are made for pizza crust, so you could use that if you wanted to. Just be ready to pay an extra 20 cents. ;)

Omfg i made a pizza today i put simple crust dough in a pan on the fire then when the crust was done i added pizza saus, rasp cheese and pepperony ;D and it tasted great! great for camping trips 1 cup of whole wheat flour (as freshly milled as practical) 1/4 tsp. salt 1tsp baking powder water :D EASY!! AND HMM bread :D

nah, I really like the hand formed aspect of this. I'm also *very* curious how it would react to my pizza stone.

I'm officially intrigued, this is an amazing idea.

When I was a kid my mom made pizzas from Thomas's English muffins. Toast lightly, sauce, toppings melt cheese and eat. I used to hate this as I would rather have pizza parlor pizza, but made them myself for nostalgia's sake and found I loved them now

nice, my cousin makes these with her kids and they love it. her mom(my aunt) taught us how to make these when we were kids. :)

looks good but about how much do they cost. +1

Tomcat94 (author)cprocjr2008-04-26

They cost about.... seven bucks total? I dunno. It really depends on what kind of toppings/biscuits you use. But they are generally less than ten dollars.

Great idea, Love pizza, we use Ritz crackers for bit size, a real hit with the grand kids

Gjdj3 (author)2008-04-13

Mmmmm, I love making these. In fact... I think I'll go make one now! Good job and +1!

Aren't biscuits sweet though? Or is this another US/UK semantics thing?

Bitsi (author)Babyshoes2008-04-13

Yep. Biscuit (UK) = Cookie (USA). These are southern (maybe south eastern even) style bread rolls. Check this out. __mmmmmm__

They're pretty buttery (savory). I highly recommend them if you've never had one. Better than the best scone and cream you've ever had. ;-)
