Today, I decided to create my own version of one of my favorite childhood foods- the pizza lunchable. I assume many of you, just like me, used to beg your mom to pack you a lunchable to bring to school instead of the usualy PB &J. Since this week’s theme is “crunch time,” I decided to try and find a crunchy-ish crust to substitute for pizza dough. The cheapest and easiest substitute I could think of is flakey breakfast buttermilk biscuit dough.
- Flakey breakfast biscuits
- marinara sauce
- mozzarella cheese
- fresh basil
- chopped tomato
- other toppings of your choice!
Preheat the oven to 350* (follow the directions on the biscuits wrapper). Flatten out the biscuits until they are about 5 inches in diameter.
Let the biscuits cook for about 12 minutes. While the busicuits are baking, go ahead and chop up fresh tomato and basil along with any other toppings you would like. Once the buiscuits look slightly golden brown go ahead and take them out of the oven. I removed the top layer of the biscuit, which had hardened over the flakey and soft inside layers. Add a spoon full of marinara sauce, fresh tomato, fresh basil, mozzarella cheese and pepperoni for a complete mini pizza.
This quick and easy recipe only took about 15 minutes. It is a great recipe for when you are in a time crunch but still want to enjoy a childhood favorite!
