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.
