Introduction and My Rating

Pizza, .we all love it but making it at home is more work than many want to try (it isn’t THAT hard… ). So a biscuit based crust is a good substitute. It’s quick, easy, and tasty.

I started with a basic biscuit recipe. I added butter to the dough under the dough and on top of the dough. It is not health food, you know.

My Rating

My rating system of a 4 out of 5 so very nice.


This is a great substitute for a yeast-based dough when you’re in a hurry. A high 3 or low 4.

Pizza Size

I have set this recipe size to a nine-inch round or a 6X9 baking dish. You can adjust it up to a 12 inch round or 9X13 rectangular pan by increasing the recipe by 50%. That is easily done by adjusting the number of servings in the recipe card below.

You could increase to a 15-inch round pan by doubling the recipe but you will have a thinner crust.

Pizza Sauce

This pizza takes very little sauce; about 1/4 cup. So, I generally will just use a jar sauce. But you can make a sauce. It is a lot better but you will end up making 12 oz. but only use 2 oz. But it will freeze well.

My suggest sauce: One 6 oz can of tomato paste and 6 oz water. 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, 1 clove garlic, about half a small chopped onion, and 1 teaspoon oregano. A pinch (1/4 teaspoon) crushed red pepper (optional.)

The tomato paste gives a touch of sweetness and deeper tomato taste than sauce.

Toppings

Top anyway you want. Do it Chicago style with the cheese on the bottom. Load it with veggies, chicken, or anything you want. As always, do NOT use raw meat.

Pro Tips

  1. I make this more as a thick crust pan pizza but make it the way you want.
  2. I have set this recipe size to a 9-inch round or a 6X9 baking dish.
  3. You can adjust it up to a 12-inch round or 9X13 rectangular pan by increasing the recipe by 50%. That is easily done by adjusting the number of servings above.
  4. You could increase to a 15-inch round pan by doubling the recipe but you will have a thinner crust.
  5. This uses very little sauce so I generally use jarred sauce.
  6. You can use my homemade sauce: One 6 oz can of tomato paste and 6 oz water. 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, 1 clove garlic, about half a small chopped onion, and 1 teaspoon oregano. A pinch (1/4 teaspoon) crushed red pepper (optional.) This will make 12 oz. and you only need 2 oz. But it does freeze well.
  7. Toppings are up to you.
  8. Nutrition includes cheese and sauce but no other topppings.
