Kids will love these mini biscuit pizzas! They’re easy to make with canned biscuit dough baked in a muffin tin!
Mini Biscuit Pizzas
If you ask my kids what they want for dinner, half the time they’ll say “chicken nuggets” and the rest of the time the answer is “pizza!!!”
Instead of ordering delivery (which is getting pretty pricey these days), why not try making these mini pepperoni pizzas at home? All you need are 4 simple ingredients, which you can get for about $10 at the grocery store.
These cute little biscuit pizzas are not only thrifty, but they’re easy to make too! The kids can totally help assemble the pizzas and add their favorite toppings. We started with the basic pepperoni and mozzarella cheese, but you can customize with your favorite pizza toppings.
How fun is that?!
These are essentially a mini deep dish pizza, with a delicious crust that’s chewy on the outside, fluffy on the inside. The middle of the pizza is filled with tasty tomato sauce, melty cheese, and mini pepperoni.
Not only do these mini kids pizzas make an easy dinner on a busy weeknight, they are also great for packing in a lunchbox.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Kind Of Biscuits Should I Used?
We used flaky biscuits, such as Pillsbury Grands. But generic or store brands work too! Make sure to separate into individual biscuits, but not pull apart the layers within each biscuit. If the biscuits are too thin, they may overcook.
Can You Freeze Biscuit Pizzas?
Yes, you can freeze your mini pizzas. I recommend placing them in a gallon size freezer bag. They’ll stay good in the freezer for 2-3 months.
To thaw and cook frozen biscuit pizzas, remove them from the plastic bag and place on a baking sheet in the oven. Set the oven to preheat to 300°F. When the oven reaches temperature, your pizzas should be warmed through. You could also use a toaster oven.
You can also refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3-4 days. They are perfect for making a batch at the beginning of the week and packing in a lunchbox each day.
