With just a few convenient items from our market refrigerated case, we have the shortcut to some warm and welcoming After School Pizza Puffs. The kids are sure to do their homework with a smile when you serve these up!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (12-ounce) package refrigerated biscuits (10 biscuits)
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce, divided
  • 1/3 cup refrigerated cooked crumbled sausage
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, for sprinkling
  • Cooking spray

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. 
  2. Separate biscuit dough into 10 pieces. Make an indentation in the center of each biscuit with your thumb. Spoon a teaspoon of sauce into each indentation. Top evenly with crumbled sausage and mozzarella cheese and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  3. Pull dough over filling and pinch together firmly so that filling is completely enclosed. Place seam side down on prepared baking sheet. Lightly spray tops with cooking spray and sprinkle with more Parmesan cheese.
  4. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden. Serve warm with remaining pizza sauce.

I'm familiar with the store bought biscuit dough and have used it many times so I get how it would work with this recipe but I'm on this make everything from scratch journey and was wondering...could homemade biscuit dough work with this recipe? The store bought version is really stretchy, and as anyone who makes homemade biscuits knows the dough is more my concern would be the pizza puffs falling apart before they even get a chance to bake.


I made these one Sunday afternoon not too long ago for a Sunday dinner appetizer. they came out tasting real good, but were a mess to make. The sauce kept oozing out as I was trying to close them. I only used a small amount of sauce, sausage, and cheese in each. Any suggestions on how to prevent this from happening?

Hi there! We're sorry to hear it made an oozing mess! Try flattening the biscuit just slightly to make it larger, and be sure to pinch seams together really well. Another tip, brush the edges of biscuit with egg wash to help it seal better. Hopefully that solves the problem! Enjoy! :)

I don't think you have to be in school to enjoy a treat like this ) Grown ups love pizza snacks too!

We've seen these before, used pepperoni in the first batch, sausage in the other. Made 'em for a football party and they were gone before the first score! These are tasty and quick! And The Bronco's won !

A variation my grandkids love...mozzerella string cheese sticks cut into thirds. brush biscuit w/ a little marinara, add one cheese piece, and a couple of pepperoni this instead of the sausage, etc. Roll as indicated and brush melted garlic butter on top then sprinkle with Parmesan and bake. Make lots...I promise you, they don't last long!!!

Looksl like a good one to try for my kids!!

looks good
