I was pleasantly surprised at how well this turned out. Sweet but not too sweet and tangy but not bitter.  

Consider garnishing with lemon slices. I thought it might be too much lemon, so I didn’t. I will try it next time.

Serve with in season quick stir-fried vegetables for a well-rounded, time-saving meal.

This is a great recipe to make with the kids!

Shortening 8 oz pizza sauce
All-purpose flour 1-2 cups shredded cheese (mozzarella, cheddar, or other favorite cheeses)
1 package refrigerated biscuits Toppings: any combination of favorite pizza toppings (e.g. sliced pepperoni, chopped green peppers, onions, hamburger, Italian sausage, mushrooms, tomatoes)
  1. Heat oven to 425. Grease baking sheets with shortening.
  2. Sprinkle cutting board with flour.  Pull biscuits apart and use rolling-pin to flatten biscuits until about 4 inches across. Place on baking sheet.
  3. Spoon about 1 1/2 tablespoons pizza sauce onto each biscuit. Sprinkle with about 2 tablespoons of cheese. Let everyone top with favorite toppings.
  4. Bake until crust is brown, about 10-15 minutes.

Get creative!  Try BBQ sauce instead of pizza sauce with chicken, red onions, a slice of provolone and  jalapeños.  Alfredo sauce, shrimp, mozzarella, onions and chopped broccoli is very good, too.  Ketchup, mustard, american cheese, pickle relish, onions and hot dogs for the hot dog lover.  You can use Grands biscuits for thicker crust, or larger crust if you flatten it out more.  Bake for 15-20 minutes if you use Grands.
