- Biscuit dough—all-purpose flour, salt, milk, baking powder, and butter or oil.

- Cheese—shredded mozzarella, but you can add grated parmesan cheese, also.
- Favorite pizza toppings
- Italian sausage—browned and drained
- Ground beef—browned and drained
- green pepper
- banana peppers
- sliced pickled jalapeno peppers
- black olives
- pineapple (not my choice.)
👨🍳How to Make Biscuit Pizza
- Prepare the homemade biscuit crust.
- Spread the crust in a 9-inch round baking pan going slightly up the sides of the pan. Brush with melted butter.
- Spread ¼ cup of pizza sauce over the dough, add toppings of your choice, and top with cheese.
- Bake in a 400° convection or 425° conventional oven until golden brown—18-20 minutes.
- This recipe uses homemade biscuit dough. Making your own is easier than getting refrigerated biscuits to come together nicely.
- You can cut in cold butter for more flakiness or use melted butter or olive oil for a firmer crust.
- 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.
This recipe is for a nine-inch round or a 6X9 baking dish. You can adjust it 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.
Homemade pizza sauce is a lot better than a commercial jar sauce. But this biscuit pizza only needs 2 ounces of pizza sauce, but it will freeze well for 3-4 months.
My homemade sauce (makes 12 ozs): One 6 oz can of tomato paste and 6 oz water. 1 teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon pepper, 1 clove crushed garlic or ¼ teaspoon garlic powder, about half a small chopped onion, and 1 teaspoon oregano. A pinch (¼ teaspoon) crushed red pepper (optional.)
The tomato paste gives a touch of sweetness and a deeper tomato taste than tomato sauce.
Any leftover pizza is best reheated in an oven on a pizza stone. Heat the oven and stone to 350°. Lightly sprinkle some water on the crusty edge, then place it on the hot stone for 5-10 minutes.
If you don't have a pizza stone, preheating a baking sheet will work almost as well.
The crust will absorb moisture from the sauce and toppings, so I prefer no longer than two days in the refrigerator.

Your Own Private Notes
- The crust is firmer due to melting the butter before adding. If you want a fluffier crust that then cut in cold butter instead. The firmer crust will hold up better.
- I make this more as a thick crust pan pizza but make it the way you want. Spread the same amount of crust on a larger pan for a thinner crust.
- I have set this recipe size to a 9-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 above.
- You could increase to a 15-inch round pan by doubling the recipe but you will have a thinner crust.
- This uses very little sauce, so I generally use jarred sauce.
- You can use my homemade sauce: One 6 oz
- can of tomato paste and 6 oz water. 1 teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon pepper, 1 clove garlic or ¼ teaspoon garlic powder, about half a small chopped onion, and 1 teaspoon oregano. A pinch (¼ teaspoon) crushed red pepper (optional.) This will make 12 oz., and you only need 2 oz. But it does freeze well.
- Toppings are up to you.
- Nutrition includes cheese and sauce but no other toppings.
- Good refrigerated for 2-3 days or frozen for 2-3 months.
To adjust the recipe size:
You may adjust the number of servings in this recipe card under servings. This does the math for the ingredients for you. BUT it does NOT adjust the text of the instructions. So you need to do that yourself.
