One of my favorite things to go on sale is biscuit mix. This is because the mix is so very flexible. You can of course whip up soft, flaky biscuits in ten minutes, but you can also do so much more. I’ve used it to make pizza bites, tuna pockets (more than once actually), and as a pie crust substitute.
But the best way to use biscuit mix, other than biscuits, is as a flatbread for pizzas! These are amazing because the toppings are only as limited as your creativity.
I was having a get-together, and had to make something to feed a crowd at the last minute. This was my mom’s idea, and it turned out to be brilliant. Everyone could try something different, and everyone was happy with the results.
Feel free to get creative with whatever you have in your kitchen.
Ingredients (per pizza):
- 1 roll biscuit dough (or pizza dough)
- Approx. 1 cup toppings
- 1/3 cup sauce (marinara, ranch, BBQ…)
This pizza included bacon, cooked chicken breast, spinach, shredded cheddar cheese, and ranch dressing.
As you can see, you can make pizza pockets, in many different sizes. Just press the dough together and mold it to the size you need.
The smaller the pizza pocket, the less time you need to cook. These all went in for about 12 minutes, and you can see the smaller pockets are a darker brown whereas the larger ones are slightly golden.
We had some with mozzarella and pepperoni, some with red pepper and spinach, and some bacon BBQ. These would be great for birthday parties, cookouts, picnics, a casual weeknight, and more.
