Ingredients Nutrition

  • 10 refrigerated biscuits, regular size (1 package)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lb Italian sausage, remove meat from casings (use spicy if you like heat)
  • 1 cup sweet onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil (chopped or sliced)
  • 12-1 cup spaghetti sauce or 12-1 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup swiss cheese, grated


  1. On 2 baking sheets covered with either parchment paper or a silicone non-stick baking mat, place 5 biscuits on each. With your fingers, press biscuits down and stretch them until they are about 6 inches wide. They will be quite thin. Bake crusts for the same time that the package says to cook the biscuits or until lightly browned.
  2. While the crusts are baking, heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add sausage meat and break up as you stir, for about 3 minutes. Add onion and sauté for 5 more minutes. Turn off heat when meat is cooked and onions are soft. Stir in basil.
  3. When pizza crusts are done, add a spoonful of sauce to the top of each one, using as much or as little as you like. Divide sausage mixture between the crusts. Top with grated cheese.
  4. Bake for 8 to 10 more minutes or until cheese is melted. Make sure that crusts do not burn.
  5. Cut and serve.

Made for the guys that helped put up a fence in my backyard, and this definately fit the bill, there was 4 of them ,ended up with the 10 mini pizzas, and they ate them all. I did have 1, and it was very enjoyable, I did reheat mine, as I had a late lunch, but nonetheless, really enjoyed it, and would not hesitate to make again.

A nice, simple and quick meal to make and perfect for taking in the lunch box. The flavour blends were ok but not my favourite but both my boys really enjoyed them. Like another reviewer I didn't use any oil for the sausage as it had plenty of it's own and used a tsp of dried basil rather than fresh. I could only get 5" rounds, precooked for 7 minutes as we prefer softer crust and then pushed down where it rose in the middle so it made a bit of a well which was awesome for keeping the ingredients in for packing lunches. We were running out of swiss so I mixed it with marble cheddar cheese. For the pizza sauce I used half a can of tomato paste and 1/2 tsp dried italian seasoning by Club House and a tsp of water. We'll definitely be keeping this recipe for a nice easy lunch and to satisfy those pizza cravings. Thanks for creating a simple and budget friendly recipe! Made and enjoyed for RSC #16. Best of luck!

Loved how simple and easy to make! I only stretched mine to about 4 inches plus I used the grand size for a thicker crust! I also used Gruyere cheese for the Swiss as it melts beautifully. I also used my homemade marinara sauce. Made for Ready Set Cook #16.
