Mini Pizzas with Canned Biscuits


It's the middle of January, which means it won't be long until the Superbowl. I'm not much of a football fan, but I do enjoy a tasty game day snack! Last year we made some delicious dishes for the big game, including pizza potato skins. Is it bad I remember the food more than who played in the game?

This year we won't get to enjoy making game day snacks, we will be traveling on the day of the big game! We had our own game day last weekend, though, cheering on our favorite (undefeated) college basketball team. We made some adorable and delicious mini pizzas to enjoy while we watched the game.

You've probably seen the popular Pinterest pin of pizza rolls made with canned biscuits. We've made them in the past, as well as an Italian chicken version and a caramel apple version. Instead of creating the pizza rolls this time, though, we decided to experiment with making mini pizzas out of the canned biscuit dough. These mini pizzas worked out well because my husband and I enjoy very different toppings on our pizzas, so we were able to make individualized ones.

These mini pizzas are easy to make, plus I think they are adorable! It's also a small handheld snack, making it perfect for game day.

Mini Pizza ingredients:
  • Grands biscuits
  • Pizza sauce
  • Freshly grated cheese (I used Monterey jack and pepper jack)
  • Favorite pizza toppings (onion, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, mushrooms, bacon, pepperoni, etc)
  • Italian seasoning
  • Red pepper flakes (optional)
