Pull Apart Pizza Crust

Pull apart pizza! Genius!

PIZZA!

The other week Pillsbury refrigerated dough was on sale and I had a coupon. I bought buttermilk biscuits for dirt cheap. I also bought pizza sauce and cheese on sale. This was a very budget friendly meal. I’d guess $2 for the whole pizza.

I used my cast iron skillet to make this pizza. I sliced the biscuits in half and sometimes in thirds if I could do it. Then I had the kids help me put the pieces in the bottom of the skillet and sort of up the side of the skillet. Just a bit. Then I pinched them together so there wasn’t any space between the slices of biscuits. Then I baked them at 400 degrees F for about 5 minutes. Then I topped the hot biscuits with olive oil and fresh herbs and garlic.

Then topped that with pizza sauce. Go a little heavy on this as the biscuits are pretty dry. Then top the sauce with some cheese. I chose provolone and  mozzarella. Then I topped that with fresh thyme and basil. My two favorite herbs. (you pick your favorite) Then I baked the whole thing until the cheese was melted and toasty just like we like it.

To serve I took the whole pan to the table. Be careful of little fingers. The pan is super hot.

Be careful. The pan is HOT!

Finished Pull Apart Pizza!

I waited about 5 minutes and then called the family to the table. You need to wait a little while because if you try to scoop the pizza out the cheese will fall off. I served a big chunk to Josie and told her to rip it apart. This would’ve been impossible with normal pizza and would’ve required mom or dad to cut the pizza. That’s what I love about this Pull Apart Pizza Crust. You can serve a big spatula full and the kids can pull it apart to help it cool and to eat smaller pieces. None of that, “Can you cut my pizza?” request just as you sit down to eat yours. They can “cut” their own pizza. It was a huge hit! As usual, serve with salad or grapes and apples and call it a meal.
