Recipe of the "Week"

Who doesn't love their own personal pizza? I do, but I'm a complete novice at dough-making & am easily intimidated. But even if you're a pro, there are surely times when you just need something quick & simple. Enter Mama (mine) with the great idea to make pizzas on canned biscuit dough. You should totally try this on for size:

Personal Pizzas


-1 can Pillsbury flaky biscuits
-homemade pizza sauce (it's super easy. Promise.)
-mozzarella cheese
-pepperoni (we use turkey pepperoni, & it's awesome.)


-Line a pizza pan or cookie sheet with foil & spray with cooking spray.

-Make your pizza sauce (see below).

-Lay out the canned biscuits a couple of inches apart & flatten them with the palm of your hand.

-Spread the pizza sauce on each flattened biscuit.

-Top the pizza with cheese & pepperoni. Pepperoni is our choice, but you can obviously make it to suit your taste.

-Bake the pizzas according to the biscuit directions, just make sure to keep an eye on the "crust" to make sure it doesn't burn.

-Let the pizzas cool slightly so you don't burn your mouth.

Homemade Pizza Sauce (I failed to make note of where I got this from & all of my searching hasn't turned it up.)


-1 15 oz jar/can tomato sauce
-2 Tbsp parmesan cheese
-1 tsp garlic powder (I used dry minced garlic)
-3/4 tsp onion powder
-1/4 tsp oregano
-1/4 tsp basil
-1/8 tsp black pepper (just sprinkle some in)
-1/2 tsp honey (optional; I've made this twice & haven't added this yet.)


-Mix all ingredients together & let it sit while you "make" the dough, then make your pizzas.

-*Hint: For 8-10 personal pizzas, half this recipe.

And just so you know, my sweet husband - who is a pizza connoisseur - said this was the best pizza he'd ever had & didn't see any need in ever ordering from his favorite place again! I have no doubt that the sauce had everything to do with it!
