Mini Biscuit Pizzas

How many times do we have pizza a month? Don’t ask.  We are pizza monsters.   Favorite food? It’s hard to choose, it’s like telling me to pick a favorite cat (all of them!).  But pizza is definitely up there in the number ones.   How much do we love pizza? Well we made a video once about pizza, it even included a dancing pizza costume and playing baseball with some slices of pizza and a handle to hit them out of the park.  It was part of a installation piece where you could walk up to a screen and feed friends pizza with a press of a pizza button.

Last year we had a solo art show in London, it was about dinosaurs (another love that we’ll talk about some other time) and at our opening we had a pizza truck.
  
I mean does life get any cooler than that – going to London, having your own show you made with your best friend about dinosaurs and then having a pizza truck whipping out pizzas all night long?   Life goal: Accomplished.

So yeah, we really love pizza and now you know a little more about my life outside of Brooklyn Farm Girl.  Dinosaurs and pizza. 

Sometimes we’re craving pizza but we don’t want to spend the money on takeout and we don’t feel like making homemade dough.  Problem solved, let me introduce you to Mini Biscuit Pizzas.

These Mini Pizzas are great because they take 12 minutes in the oven.   That means you can have yummy pizza to eat in about 15 minutes because there’s not much more to do then to dice up some green peppers and mushrooms.   In the recipe I suggest pepperoni, green peppers and mushrooms but feel free to make these pizzas your own, top them with whatever you like.  Speaking of – what’s your favorite pizza topping?

  2. Laura @ Lauras Baking Talent

    What a fun idea! We love pizza too.. my favorite is pepperoni with green peppers.

  3. Ruby @ The Ruby Red Apron

    I am a pizza monster too! And I love this GENIUS idea! Mushrooms are my favorite. Pepperoni too.

  4. Jamie | Jamie's Recipes

    I am totally having a “why didn’t I think of that” moment. I’ve done bagel pizzas, English muffin pizzas, naan pizzas but for some reason it has never crossed my mind to use biscuits. Brilliant! We are pizza monsters here too. I love all the toppings, but there is something so nice about a simple margarita pizza.

  5. The Café Sucre Farine

    What a brilliant (as they say in London) idea Pamela! I love it. We’re just like you with pizza. It’s something I never grow tired of!

  6. Kelly

    Yum, we love homemade pizza too, my hubby would eat it every night if he could and now maybe he can. These mini pizza biscuits look adorable! Love this idea! We love adding pineapples on our pizza or one of my faves is a margherita pizza :)

  7. Monica

    You guys are beyond creative and I just love your passion for food. Passion for pizza is something I can certainly relate to. We made pesto chicken and sausage pizzas on store-bought naan last night for dinner. We love it. These mini pizza biscuits are such a fun and cool idea! I’ve made pizza with english muffin and tortilla…now I need to try biscuits.

  8. Stephanie @ PlainChicken

    The pizza from the pizza truck looks AMAZING! I am a pizza fanatic. I love the idea of the biscuit pizzas – so easy and yummy!

  9. Davida @ The Healthy Maven

    Commenting on your blog as I got an email you commented on mine! Not only that, but we also have the same life goal. Let’s be best friends k? Ugh why did I ever move away from NYC?!?!

  10. kimmythevegan

    Mmmm I LOVE pizza. It’s definitely one of my top favourite foods too! My favourite toppings are mushroom & pepper too. Lately I’ve been adding marinated artichoke hearts (don’t knock it ’till ‘ya try it as I thought it sounded gross until my hubby got me to try it).
    These look super cute =)

  11. yummychunklet

    Quick and tasty meal idea!

  12. Ashley | Spoonful of Flavor

    We can’t get enough pizza in our household either. I love these mini biscuit pizzas, they are the perfect size so I don’t have to worry about sharing :)

  13. Tandy | Lavender and Lime

    My favourite pizza topping is feta, avocado, prosciutto and fresh tomatoes :)

  14. Katie

    My parents eat pizza at least 4-5 times a week. Not even kidding. I’m definitely telling them about this idea! Personal pizzas – they remind me of Book It. :D

    • Pamela

      BOOK IT is still alive and running, I just looked it up! Amazing! That was a encouragement to read as a kid. ;)

  15. ATasteOfMadness

    These pizzas are so cute! I would love to have some of these for dinner!

  16. Maureen | Orgasmic Chef

    Teasing me with refrigerated biscuits. No such thing in Australia so we must make our own. I’d LOVE pizzas like this – how quick!

  17. Shawn @ Fruity 'N' Nutty

    Dinosaurs and pizza sound like an awesome recipe for a great time. :p I haven’t had pizza in forever and have never made one myself. Most of the recipes I’ve seen are way too complicated and take way to long for me. These look so yummy and seem like the perfect match for me. :)

    • Pamela

      Hope you’re able to get some pizza soon Shawn, I love how easy these are.

  18. Debra

    Pizza, dinosaurs, cats, pumpkins….. You have eclectic and diverse loves. :)

    I first thought the stack of biscuits was mozzarella. We made these as kids. I think I even did a 4-H demonstration on how to make them once. Happy early thanksgiving.

    • Pamela

      A big stack of mozzarella sounds pretty delicious too Debra. ;)

  19. Faith @ Pixie Dust Kitchen

    My boyfriend’s favorite food is pizza; so I’ll definetly be saving this recipe for the future! This is great because everyone can use their on toppings, so no arguments about what to top the pizzas with!

  20. Anna (Hidden Ponies)

    I love this, what a great idea! And the show and pizza truck = AWESOME, how cool! We try to have homemade pizza once a week but I don’t always get to it…everyone is always thrilled when it happens though :)

    • Pamela

      I’ll be stopping over for dinner one night this week then. :)

  21. ashley - baker by nature

    Yes! We’re totally pizza monsters, too! And I love these mini biscuit versions SO much.

  22. Jaclyn

    This is such a good idea! We eat an inappropriate amount of pizza as well…it never gets old.

  23. Hani/Haniela's

    Yum! I love pizza!

  24. Pamela, this is genius. Like, pizza is one of my all time favorite comfort foods and now I can have it quick and cute. I don’t know if I should thank you for this or not;) Using biscuits is so smart and I bet tastes incredible (how can you go wrong with biscuits?) I’m thinking this will join our weekly lunch rotation!

    • Pamela

      Enjoy Mary Frances, hope you love this quick and mini pizza!

  25. Now that’s one heck of a pizza truck!!! And I gotta check out that pizza video!
    These are so quick, cute pizzas!

  26. sandra

    I finally had success with pizza just last night! these look like a great option for a quick treat!

  27. Marie @ Little Kitchie

    Love this idea! We are pizza monsters too :) YUM!

  28. Pam

    These would be great after school snacks for my kids! Bookmarked.

  29. I love Pizza! =)
    These look like a great way to make them quick and easy!

  30. Ash-foodfashionparty

    I love the pillsbury biscuit dough and the french bread. They both are so versatile, loving these cute little pizzas. That pizza truch is something.

  31. Dan from Platter Talk

    Pizza was long ago designated as most favorite food by this man. Thanks for this post, it makes my heart sing!!

  32. Shundara@SavyNaturalista

    Trucks serving pizza! Being in London! Biscuits and pizza yummy and awesome! :)

  33. Laura @ The Rookie Cook

    I think we are pizza soul mates! We (or at least me) looooove pizza too! These biscuits look delicious and easy!

    • Pamela

      Pizza mates! :)

  34. Fun adventure in London! Love the idea of the biscuit pizza and how fast they can be ready on the table. The best part is that they are individual pizzas so each person can customize it.

    • Pamela

      Definitely, I love the customization option!

  35. Consuelo @ Honey & Figs

    These are the most adorable pizzas ever! What a fun and original idea, Pamela!
    My favorite topping has to be roasted veggies and chicken, yum!! ;)

  36. The Sketched Chef

    They look adorable and perfect !!

  37. Koko

    That pizza truck is amazing! But how cuuute are those biscuit pizzas! I had pizza on the weekend hehehe mmmmm

    • Pamela

      You lucky girl!

  38. Chris @ Shared Appetite

    Have you ever been to Roberta’s for pizza? How about Motorino? Two of my recent faves in the area. Do you have any others?

    Love the idea of using biscuit dough for quick weeknight dinners :)

    • Pamela

      Hey Chris, personally I think Roberta’s is overrated and overpriced. My favorite will always be Grimaldi’s. :)

      • Chris @ Shared Appetite

        Never been to Grimaldi’s yet… on my list of places to get to! I’ll have to check it out soon :)

  39. Mary

    Who doesn’t love a good pizza – and yours looks SOOO good –
    Mary x

  40. Tessa @ Feral Kitchen

    Great idea Pamela! Love it!

  41. Milana - the Jottings

    This looks so tasty! I need to make these this weekend! :)

  42. Amy @ Elephant Eats

    Haha, so cool you had a solo dino show!!! Omg, I LOVE this quick pizza idea! Sometimes I buy the pillsbury pizza dough, which is essentially a giant biscuit…but I like this better. They’re so cute :)

  43. Amanda @ Once Upon a Recipe

    These are ridiculously adorable. I love it when food tastes good AND is cute! :)

  44. Sydney

    These look so simple to make, perfect for the post-Thanksgiving “don’t want to cook anything” mood, after the leftovers are finished with.

  45. I recently attended a Pizza making workshop and ate sooooo many pizzas, I swore not to touch a slice for at least a couple of months. There I was the next day ordering a pizza on the phone ’cause I was so hungry and the only thing racing through my mind was a PIZZA!!! Your mini biscuit pizzas are just sooooooo awesome! and quick! what’s not to like! :) Loving it !!!!!!!!!!!! :)

    • Pamela

      I want to hear more about this pizza making workshop! I have to look for some in NYC, would be fun for me and Matthew to attend!

  46. Tamara Coleman

    What a great idea! :)

  47. Aimee / Wallflower Girl

    I wish I knew you last year because I have an artist friend who lives in London who is obsessed with dinosaurs – I’m sure she would have loved your show! Anyway, I’m up for mini anything, pizza anything and biscuit anything so this sounds mighty good to me :-)

  48. Cecile @ My Yellow Farmhouse

    I just found this post… I’m behind because I was in Philadelphia for about a week. I’m going to send this link to both the son who lives in Philly & the one who lives in Massachusetts. They both have pizza-loving families!! And I like this idea for me – something I can ‘whip up’ for myself !! I LOVE LONDON !! We used to get to go there a lot… now…’not so much’….. Congrats on your show in London – how wonderful !!
