Here is Susan back with another fun recipe for the kids! Mini Biscuit Pizza Rounds made with Pillsbury Mini Biscuits!
Here’s a little info on these biscuits:
Each 70-calorie biscuit is a delight when served hot from the oven, with a warm fluffy center and golden, flaky crust. Pillsbury® Grands!® Mini Biscuits are the perfect size for kids, or for mini sandwiches and appetizers. There are countless recipe options, from miniature ham sandwiches come lunchtime, to delicious sliders for nighttime entertaining. There are so many ways to make these biscuits and your family will love trying each one.
Mini Biscuit Pizza Rounds!
My objective was to make this a kid friendly recipe. I also wanted something that would be all around comfort food, since that is what a biscuit is when you get right down to it. These mini biscuits are only 70 calories so, you get to eat a little bite of something really tasty and not eat too many calories.
I thought about my mom’s recipe for individual pizzas. She used to make these when I was a kid and would freeze them so that we could grab one out as needed. Hers were made on English muffin halves. I decided to make them with the Pillsbury Frozen Grands! Mini Biscuits.
Mini Biscuit Pizza Rounds
(Recipe is for 12 mini pizzas)
6 Pillsbury Frozen Grands! Mini Biscuits
1 can of tomato paste
1 can of water
1 tsp dried Basil
1 tsp Oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Salt and Pepper
1/2 pound turkey breakfast sausage (or 4 pre-cooked patties chopped into small pieces)
Cheese Whiz—1/2 to 1 tablespoon per round
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan (1 tsp per round)
Cook the biscuits according to the package. Cut them in half and place them in a regular size muffin tin. (So, this recipe makes 12 pizzas.)
Mix the tomato paste, water and spices in a glass bowl. Cook in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir and cook another 1/2 minute. Mix in the cooked sausage and put some on each biscuit round….using all of it evenly distributed. Top with between 1/2 –1 tablespoon of Cheese Whiz on each. 1 tablespoon is 45 calories so, if this is a concern, use 1/2 tablespoon. Then top with 1 tsp of Parmesan Cheese.
Bake at 350 until bubbly. This will take about 10-13 minutes, if oven is preheated. Take them out and let them stand for a few minutes.
By the way, I tried these on my grandkids and they loved them. My grandson is pretty picky too. Woohoo!
1. If you want to freeze these for later, don’t cook them before freezing.
2. You can add various vegetables such as onions, peppers, olives for adults or kids that aren’t picky.
3. You can substitute low fat pepperoni for the sausage, but chop it up first.
