Quick, Simple Bisquick Pizza Dough

Homemade pizza can be put together from scratch, but sometimes that takes too long. If you have small children or have had a busy day, you may prefer the convenience of Bisquick pizza dough, or other doughs that can be made using a mix. This is especially true if little cooks want to “help” around the kitchen. Fortunately, this is a quick, easy recipe that everyone can help with.

There are lots of different variations on the Bisquick dough recipe, but this one calls for additional flour, yeast, and olive oil. They act as flavoring agents, give the dough a little more spring, and prevent it from being too biscuit-like. Plus, this recipe is highly adjustable, with ingredient listings being very approximate – adjust according to what you have in the house and your preferences.

You will find this very simple to make, and besides the biscuit mix you just need flour, water, yeast, and oil. Use any biscuit mix – it does not have to be Bisquick. Because of the biscuit mix you do not need to use a whole package of yeast. Just a pinch should be sufficient.

The resulting pizza crust will be thicker than a thin and crispy pizza but not as deep as a pan pizza, just somewhere between the two. The finished crust is not going to taste like biscuits, but it will not be as chewy as an authentic Italian crust either. It does taste good and the texture is nice, making a change from the standard pizza crusts you have perhaps made before.
