You may remember last week when I posted about my “Perfect Portion Pizzas”…. that disappeared. Thankfully they were delicious enough that no one complained about me making them again so soon.
I saw the commercial for making these little biscuit pizzas from Pillsbury – but you know how that goes. How good are they really?!! So often I see “delicious, easy” food on TV and… well… it doesnt look/taste like that when you actually try to make it at home. (save the terrible chef jokes – I was featured in the newspaper this week for cooking… I expect a call from Emeril any day now…) So I decided that these I had to try out for myself.
First let me tell you – I don't even like pizza. Not the way the rest of my family does anyway. And pizza doesn't exactly fall into the “Eat Clean” category. But there are times when I get a craving, and nothing else will do than a hot, cheesy, veggie-filled pizza. With my Perfect Portion Pizzas I can get my “fix” quickly and easily, and because they are the perfect size for portion control, I don't even have to feel guilty. I call that a win.
Perfect Portion Pizza
- Pillsbury Grands Biscuits – original
- Pizza sauce of choice
- mozzarella cheese
- mini pepperonis
- toppings – we used bell pepper, onion, black olives and mushrooms
These Perfect Portion Pizzas are as easy to make as they are delicious – perfect for someone who doesn't really know her way around the kitchen. First thing you want to do is peel the Pillsbury Grands biscuits in half – they actually come apart quite easily.
Then arrange your “halves” on a non stick baking sheet – I chose to use my Pampered Chef Stone which was perfect since it kept the biscuit crust nice and soft. Smear desired amount of pizza sauce on your biscuits – I actually do not like a lot of sauce, so I loved that I was able to make some of me with very little sauce, and the rest of the fam got to pile it on.
And then top with your favorite pizza toppings. I love that I got to have my own toppings on my little pizzas. Since I like mine piled high with veggies and Mike prefers more meat – while the girls want just cheese – we are able to all get exactly what we want.
Bake your little Perfect Portion Pizzas at 350* for about 16 minutes – or until the biscuits are done and the cheese is bubbly.
