Six Ingredient Pizza Bake and a Giveaway!
I was selected to create an original recipe with six ingredients or less by the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program with American Express as part of their [email protected] program. I was initially ecstatic when I found out that I had been chosen but then that quickly transformed into brainstorming stress. I had so many ideas on what to make but who knew 6 ingredients could be so limiting! But then I remembered those Cheesy Bacon Biscuits I made several months ago and that’s when it hit me. Why not make a pizza using a biscuit base instead of a pizza dough base? Sounds brilliant, no?
I was a bit worried that the biscuit crust would be too thick for a pizza but that’s wasn’t the case at all as the blend of mozzarella and drops of ricotta melted right into the buttery, fluffy biscuit. The julienned sun-dried tomatoes along with the sweet, refreshing basil was also beautifully complemented by the cheeses, making it a perfect match-made in heaven. It took just minutes to prep and required just six ingredients, making it the easiest, most delicious dinner in under 30 minutes. Enjoy!
Six Ingredient Pizza Bake:
Yields 4 servings
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
