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.

I love me some pizza but I love me some Pillsbury biscuits too. My problem is I can't just have one slice - total diet killer. I can't wait to try this out!

Thanks for sharing this recipe. I was making out my meal plan for next month and will be adding this recipe to it.
Yum! We have done something similar with english muffin halves when my daughter has sleepovers. I think the biscuits would taste better since they rise up and bake, instead of the prebaked english muffins.

Sounds yummy! I do the same thing with English muffins.
