Everyone Loves Pizza

I'm not sure that I've ever met anybody who doesn't love Pizza.  But it's one of those things that is always better purchased than made at home.  But this recipe is an easy knock off...again using pantry ingredients.

4-Ingredient Pizza Bake


2 pouches (7.5 oz each) Bisquick Complete buttermilk biscuit mix (See cook's note)
1 c. water
1 jar (14 oz) pizza sauce
1 pkg (8 oz) sliced pepperoni
2 c. shredded Mozzarella cheese


Heat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray 13x9 inch (3 qt) glass baking dish with cooking spray.  In medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix and water until soft dough forms.  Drop half of dough by spoonfuls evenly in bottom of baking dish (dough will not completely cover bottom of dish).

Drizzle about 1 c. pizza sauce over dough.  Arrange 1/2 of the pepperoni slices evenly over sauce.  Top with 1 c. of the cheese.  Repeat layers with remaining dough, pizza sauce, pepperoni, and cheese.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.  Cut into square to serve.

Makes 8 servings

Variation:  To make half or recipe, divide ingredients in half, bake in sprayed 8 inch sq baking dish for 22 to 25 minutes.

Special Touch:  Add your favorite pizza toppings to the layers.  Try cooked sausage crumbles, chopped green pepper, onions, or olives.

Cooks note:  Frankly, I had trouble finding the Bisquick Complete.  I used Marie Callendar biscuit mix that came in pouches.  It worked great.  Source, Betty Crocker, of course.  She's my best friend!


  1. This looks very similar to the pizza bites that I just posted...but I love that you don't have to have refrigerated biscuits in your fridge to make this one! I always have Bisquick on hand (and I always keep pizza toppings on hand too), so I could whip this up at any time. Plus, it's very kid friendly. Thanks for sharing it!

  2. I've bought the Bisquick Complete buttermilk biscuit mixes before. Basically, it makes the same drop biscuits that you can make following the recipe on the back of every Bisquick box. So, if you can't find any buttermilk biscuit mixes, I would suggest just making the recipe for drop biscuits on the Bisquick box.
