Fun With Food: Pizza Biscuits







Now that school is back in session, I've been trying to think of a variety of lunch ideas to prepare so that lunch doesn't become boring.  Of course I need to make sure the items are filling to get him through the day.  Like every parent, I would also like things that don't take a lot of time to prepare.  And where does every parent looking for ideas go? Pinterest of course! Here is my spin on an idea I saw multiple times, pizza made in a muffin tin.  I decided to try a few different toppings, including items from our balcony garden.






Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray the muffin tins with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Start with a can of biscuits, flatten and slightly pull the biscuits to make the circles wider.  Lay them in the muffin cups making sure the dough forms a cup.







Add a tablespoon of pizza sauce to the bottom of each up, then top with cheese.





Add any toppings you would like.  This time I did 3 different pizzas:
              - turkey bacon
              - basil & tomatoes (from our balcony garden)
              - cheese


Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.





Enjoy!

This is one of those recipes that is easy for little helping hands. Perfect for movie or game night!  Once you flatten and pull out the biscuits, simply put all of the topping choices in bowls and they can build their own pizzas.
