This Bisquick™ Pizza Dough is the perfect solution when you want pizza but don’t have much time. Use biscuit mix to make your pizza crust!
Some days I want pizza. Nay, NEED pizza. But delivery isn’t in the budget, I’m all out of our frozen pizza dough recipe and I don’t have the time or inclination to whip up my own. Not to worry! Bisquick™ pizza dough recipe to the rescue!
How to make pizza dough with Bisquick™? No problem, y’all! This easy Bisquick™ pizza dough without yeast is quick, simple, and remarkably yummy. I won’t pretend that it makes a chewy New York style crust (that would be silly, it’s made with biscuit dough after all), but it does make a deliciously satisfying biscuity crust.
Which sometimes I actually prefer. Mmmmmm.
Biscuit Mix Pizza Dough Ingredients
Have I mentioned this pizza crust only requires two ingredients? Unless you count water as an ingredient, then three. But I don’t think water is an ingredient. Is it? Feel free to voice your opinion in the comments.
Biscuit Mix – I use Bisquick™, but use your favorite mix.
Water – Again, the jury is out. Is this an actual ingredient? Well, it’s going in the ingredient list.
Flour – This flour adds some texture to the dough so it’s not quite as “biscuity.” You can use regular white or whole wheat flour.
Okay, so not is it only two ingredients (maybe three, jury’s still out), but it’s ingredients I literally always have in my pantry. And you probably do, too.
Real life, yo. You’re craving pizza now, aren’t you? I know I am. And we had this last night. Don’t even care, I’ll totally eat it again.
How Do You Make Bisquick™ Pizza Dough
First, mix your biscuit mix, flour and water.
Next, knead and let sit in covered bowl for 1/2 hour.
Then, roll dough and place on baking sheet. You may want to use some parchment paper or a silicone pad to prevent sticking.
Next, brush dough lightly with olive oil and add toppings.
What Kind Of Biscuit Mix To Make Pizza Crust
The kinds of biscuit mix that most people are familiar with are Bisquick™, Betty Crocker™, and Jiffy™, but I’ll bet there are regional mixes out there that you love. The mixes are very similar, combining flour with baking powder, salt, and sugar. You could also totally make up your own biscuit mix that you keep in a container for a quick hit.
Want to make an interesting variation? Try Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit Mix™ for a cheesy crust.
Can I Make A Deep Dish Bisquick™ Pizza Crust
You can make a deep dish biscuit mix pizza crust, but you’ll want to add some extra ingredients to give the pie some structure. Play with adding about 1/4 cup cornmeal and 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese per cup biscuit mix. After mixing these, cut in some butter (3T per cup of mix) and some hot water to form a dough.
Spray your casserole dish (basically, you’re making a pizza casserole) and then press your crust into bottom and up sides.
Can I Make A Gluten Free Bisquick™ Pizza Crust
You can make a gluten-free Bisquick™ pizza crust, as the company makes a gluten free mix. You shouldn’t have to make any alterations to the recipe, but do experiment for best results for you.
Can I Make Bisquick™ Pizza Crust Ahead Of Time
You can make Bisquick™ pizza crust ahead of time but it really isn’t necessary, as the dough comes together and cooks so quickly. That’s the beauty of making Bisquick™ pizza dough without yeast!
If you choose to make ahead of time I would go ahead and top it with your standard toppings then freeze it on a piece of parchment on top of a baking tray. Once completely frozen you can store in a plastic bag in the freezer to pop out and place in oven frozen. Preheat oven to 400F, place the frozen pizza directly on the center oven rack, and cook for 20-25 minutes.
This might be an easy way to prepare small, personal sized pizzas for an after school treat. If you try it, please leave me a comment and let me know how it went!
