Introduction: Biscuit Pizza

About: Bytesize articles instead of a trilogy in one post.

I love old fashion yeast bread pizza, but sometimes I am just in a hurry and do not even want to deal with the pizza delivery people. This pizza is great for using leftovers. I do recommend that any meat you used be precooked.  All the preparation can be done in the time it takes to heat the average oven. Cooking time is a max of about 12 minutes or so all things being equal. Good luck.

Step 1: The Ingredients and Utensils.

Your tired and in a hurry, but relax it's ok.


2 cups flour
1/3 cup oil (high heat)
2/3 cup buttermilk
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
Pinch of salt. (garlic salt is nicer)
2 heaping table spoons of red spaghetti sauce
1/2 to 3/4 cup of cheese such as Mozzarella
(I usually get some pepperoni rounds or poached chicken to add as an additional toppings, but you can use a couple of slices of sandwich meat in a pinch)
Stove capable of supporting 425 degrees F.
Medium to large cookie sheet pan.
Large sturdy wooden spoon
Rolling pin or equivalent
Large bowl to combine measure
1 tsp measuring spoon
1 cup measuring cup
1 tbl measuring spoon
Cooking mitt to protect your hand when removing the cookie pan from the oven.

Note: instead of using pepperoni, you can use coldcuts. It is easy to cut out circles with a small mushroom can. I usually just cut a slice in quarters and plop those pieces for the pizza.

Step 2: Getting Ready and Mixing It Up.

Preheat over to 425 degrees F.

In the large mixing bowl add the dry ingredients (salt, baking powder, baking soda, and flour)
stir around to evenly distribute them.

Take the cup and fill it one third full of oil. Does not have to be perfect but close is important. Fill the rest of the cup with buttermilk. Pour that into the flour mixture. Stir it all until it becomes a dough and is in a ball. Do not over mix.

Take the ball and spread it out evenly as much as you can in the cookie pan, You can either use your hands like I do or use the rolling pin. Between the oil and the buttermilk, you should not have to grease the pan. Though it would not hurt to do it is the first time you do this recipe.

Now pinch the edges of the dough so you have a mini barrier so that the sauce and cheese will not over flow.

Take the spaghetti sauce and spread it evenly over the dough. Then do the same with the cheese. Does not have to be perfect. At this point you could and some pre-cooked meats such as pepperoni. A plain cheese pizza does ok for me too.

Step 3: Cooking Time.

By this time the oven should be ready. Notice the time. Put the cookie pan in the oven. Keep an eye on the biscuit pizza so it does not burn. Should not take more than 12 minutes at most. The edges of the pizza will plump up and turn brown. After 10 to 12 minutes put on the cooking mitt and remove the cookie pan.

Step 4: Wait a Few Minutes and Then Eat.

Yes, put the cookie pan on top of the stove or somewhere safe from the hot bottom of the cookie pan so the dough can cool and rest a bit.  Then you can serve and eat it. Enjoy! 

I actually have two pictures of biscuit pizzas. the first on I added pepperoni to the recipe. You can see it is already almost half consumed. In the next picture I did a biscuit pizza with half rye flour. I also used Cheddar and Parmesan cheese for a variation. It's cooling now. Almost time for the taste test.
