Serves: 16


  • 1 can (16.3 oz) refrigerated biscuits
  • 2 cups pizza sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup pepperoni slices
  • 1 cup diced ham
  • 1⁄2 cup small basil leaves


  • Tear 8 large sheets of waxed paper and place one biscuit on each. Using rolling pins or smooth-sided unbreakable glasses, have children roll out biscuit into a flat, round pizza crust.
  • Have sauce in two or three squirt bottles. Place cheeses, pepperoni, ham, and basil on a plate. Pass sauce bottles around until each child has topped a biscuit crust. Allow children to add cheese and other toppings as they desire.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with nonstick foil.
  • Place pizzas on prepared baking sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until pizza crust is browned and cheese is melted.
