A slice of pizza is a meal that many people look forward to on a regular basis, but eating the same style of pizza can get a bit boring. Instead of your usual pizza crust, you can try biscuit dough for a flaky texture and alternate flavor. Biscuit dough is as versatile as traditional pizza crust, so you can customize your pie with your preferred ingredients. Herbs and seasonings boost the flavor and complement any pizza toppings you choose.

  • 2 canisters refrigerated biscuit dough

  • Medium-size bowl

  • Olive oil

  • Basting brush

Any variety of toppings can be used on a biscuit dough pizza crust. Try barbecue sauce and shredded chicken, or white sauce with spinach and cheese. Mashed beans with salsa, cheese, tomatoes and onions can make a healthy taco pizza. Use any flavor of cheese you prefer, such as Parmesan, cheddar or pepper jack.


Do not overbake the crust the first time you put it in the oven. Cooking it for too long may lead to burning after you put the toppings on it.
