Ever get tired of buying biscuits and just using them as biscuits? Does that make any sense? You buy biscuits to have biscuits right? Well I usually just make my biscuits with Bisquick and rarely buy canned biscuits, but they were on sale and now I have biscuits coming out of my ears.....so I tried a couple of new recipes!
First one is a mini calzone. I honestly can not remember where I found this idea. All I did was roll out a biscuit and added some yummy fillings. Ricotta, mozzarella and parm cheese with some pepperoni and black olives. Mix it all together and add a heaping tablespoon to the middle of the biscuit and fold over. Pinch the sides and your done! Bake for how long the package says. I added a couple of minutes so the insides were nice and warm. I heated up some marinara sauce to serve with it.
All sealed and ready to bake!
All done! Nice little dinner to serve with some salad and you are good to go!
Last night I made a crockpot pizza. Cooking Nuggets had this awesome recipe. I just looked at her pics. So I don't have the exact recipe. If you want that just visit her site :). I took pics along the way of what I did. The house smelled so yummy, who doesn't want a house smelling like pizza??
So first what you do, is dump a jar of pizza sauce on the bottom. Then plop your fillings on top of that. I did a layer of pepperoni all pretty on top of this, not pictured. (I just woke up from my one nap a week so I didn't feel like chopping up my black olives!)
So the original recipe the lady just pinched off quarter sized biscuits. I cut mine into six parts and then threw them on top in an orderly fashion.
Now that, that is done, turn your crockpot on high for 2-3 hours or low 4-5 hours.
This is after two hours. The biscuits got nice and brown so i topped it with mozzarella and some cheddar I had left over. Put the lid back on and let it cook for 15-30 minutes more.
Look at that! Its like an upside down pizza! I could not wait until I got home from school to eat this! It was yummy! And the best part was the sauce didn't make it soggy at all!
I was thinking this morning of other variations that I want to try. BBQ sauce with red onion and chicken, pineapple and ham, veggie deluxe, maybe a white chicken pizza. The ideas are endless!
So anyone in the mood for pizza?
