What You'll Need

  • 2 1/2 cups pancake and biscuit mix

  2. In a medium bowl, stir biscuit mix and water until soft dough forms. Drop half of dough by spoonfuls evenly into bottom of baking dish. (Dough will not completely cover bottom of dish.)
  3. Spoon 1 cup pizza sauce over dough. Arrange 1/2 the pepperoni slices and 1/2 the mushrooms evenly over sauce. Top with 1 cup cheese. Repeat layers with remaining dough, pizza sauce, pepperoni, mushrooms, and cheese.

If the dough is a little too soggy in the center, it helps to use about half the amount of sauce as this calls for, and reserve the other half on the side for dipping. I like to form the dough into little balls and do a couple of layers, with the cheese and toppings in between and on top. This turns it into a pull - apart bread that you can serve as an appetizer!

I made this last night for dinner. Hubby and I both thought it was great. Next time will take advice and doctor up the pizza sauce. I will definitely make it again. adding a little garlic and onion will not hurt it.

Made this, grandkids helped and loved it! Its a keeper at our house. Can be as flexible as you want or what you have on hand.

Made this tonite, and we three adults enjoyed it. I too added a couple of our favorite toppings, a little garlic salt and Italian blend spices, since we like it a little spicy. How much you add also should depend on the spices in your sauce. It looked a little dry, so added probably 1/2 C more sauce. The cheese amount is probably fine, but more never hurts! The dough rose and got nicely fluffy. Don't expect pizza crust. Since I wanted to freeze another meal (love prep once, eat twice) I increased recipe by 50% and made two smaller baking dishes and baked both. Hope it's as good the second time around!

I made this over the weekend and it was AWESOME! I also added onion and mushrooms and will try sausage the next time!

This was a keeper!! easy peasy and loved it because it was pizza at its best!..And you didn't have to pay high price for the extra ingredients you want to addBeats buying out for sure! o)

With a little extra Italian seasoning and garlic this was outstanding, but I have trouble with the dough not cooking as well as it should in the middle. Any suggestions? I tried baking it a little longer, but parts were still a bit doughy.

looks so good. cant wait to try

Added a lot of sausage also, it really made my day.

This is an outstanding and quickly prepared meal. Like some of the other commentators did, I added to it (mostly with herbs and garlic) but the basic recipe is quite good.

Made this, only I added chopped onions and green peppers too. My husband loved it. I had planned on freezing half, but there was only enough left for lunch the next day. And it was good reheated!

I will try both and also make with my own ideas. It all is so "Oh it is so good".


looks good

They can't tell us to use Bisquick' since they're not allowed to 'promote' any particular product but we all know which dough mix they were talking about I've made my own pizza for many years I previously used frozen bread dough and I later used the Bobboli pizza crusts when I first got married They were all much 'too bready' so I now use the pizza dough which comes in the 'tube' you must know which one I'm talking about It begins with the letter 'P' It's great I also save some of my homemade sauce in a plastic container and I stick it into the freezer and label it to use on pizza I add whichever toppings my family and I desire when I'm assembling the pizza Use whichever toppings or cheeses you and your family like Bake it according to the directions on the P pizza dough tube YouRead More won't be disappointed I sometimes even add a little bit of crumbled-up Bleu Cheese on top along with the other cheeses to top our pizza If you like 'savory' dishes you'll love this

I go to the local Pizza shop and ask if they would sell 2-3 balls of ready made dough. Most are happt to

This was amazing! Instead of the pancake and biscuit mix (can't you just say Bisquick???), I used an english muffin and substituted sausage for the pepperoni. Not a big fan of jarred pizza sauce, so I omitted. I then made a slight change and used a slice of American cheese instead of the mozzarella and swapped out the mushrooms in favor of a fried egg. A great anytime meal!

So you basically cancelled the pizza bake idea & made a home version of a Sausage McMuffin??? And no, they can't just say "Bisquick" because some people might feel like Bisquick is a must & that they're being forced to buy it instead of a different or more generic brand that may be more affordable.

The pizza bake is great ! The substitutes you used make this an entirely different thing. However, it sounds really good.. just way too different from the original recipe.

You made a completely different recipe. Sounds good for breakfast.

I like this pizza idea, looks easy. Having grand kids over tomorrow for the week/end and this is the perfect make at home pizza. Plus I also like Janet's idea of adding other items as well. It should go over well. Thanks again!

Made It a little different but I got the steps from you It was awesome ooh its so good!!.

I've made this for years and I use frozen bread dough (thawed, of course). Just cut or tear the dough into pieces, put in a bowl and mix all ingredients together, then turn onto a greased cookie sheet. You could add any pizza topping you like, including chopped peppers, onions, sausage, canadian bacon, ect. I have also used spaghetti sauce in place of pizza sauce . . .

Lynn, Thanks for the recipe for the pizza/spaghetti sauce. It sounds really good and am saving it to try the next time we have one or the other.

Answer to soldadario: Don't even need to buy pizza sauce. When you make your own homemade marinara sauce, place1 3/4 cup in a heavy duty ziploc freezer bag (I like the 1-qt size ziplocs) or a small freezer container. Label it pizza sauce and use that! - Best , easiest marinara sauce: 2 Tbsp olive oil, 2-3 cloves minced garlic, small chopped onion, 1-32oz can crushed tomatoes, 1.2 to 1 tsp salt, pepper, 1 tsp dried basil, crumbled. Saute garlic & onion in oil until tender. Add a few crushed red pepper flakes if you want a zippier sauce. Add tomatos and seasoning and simmer about 20 min. EASY! Let it cool. Makes enough for 2 pizzas or pasta.

This was great, my husband and I both loved it. Added some fresh green peppers from the garden and it was even better.

Can you give me some pizza sauce recipes ?

1 (14-ounce) jar pizza sauce,,,,,,, or try a cook book or google

Spaghetti Sauce I usually make large amounts and then freeze for later use - large cans of tomato puree large can tomato paste tbsp crushed garlic medium onion sliced fine olive oil In a large pot pour olive oil and I usually cover the bottom of the pot and then add a little bit more This really flavors the sauce Heat the oil and add the crushed garlic and sliced onions Saute until onions are transparent Then add cans of tomatoes and tomato paste stir well until the paste is completely mixed through If you like a sweet sauce I do add sugar to sweeten to taste You can also put grated cheese in it If you want to make less use less puree I just keep stirring over a low heat for about hours or until it thickens some This came from a friend who is st generation Italian andRead More we love it Very quick and easy and yummy I also use it as pizza sauce Hope this works for you and you and yours enjoy it
