As a professional food blogger, I know that using Bisquick for your pizza crust can save you hours in the kitchen. But I want to know what you think. Do you consider this recipe quick and easy?
Hi! I'm Maris Callahan and I create easy recipes for busy professionals on my blog, ingoodtaste
. Making recipes simple to make without losing their flavor is a challenge I love to take on. So when the Bisquick team invited me to come shoot a video showing how to whip up an easy pizza using their iconic brand, I was definitely up for it.
Once I arrived at General Mills, our first stop was a visit to the Betty Crocker Kitchens, which is a pretty amazing place. Imagine a large room filled with about a dozen beautiful kitchens – where some of America’s favorite recipes have originated.
After a lot of prep and primping, it was – Lights! Camera! Action! With the main star being the Caprese Pizza
, of course.
What I love about this pizza recipe, is how easy the crust is to make. It's just three cups of Bisquick, hot water and a little bit of olive oil. Mix until it becomes the doughy texture you've seen at your favorite pizza place (and don't be scared to use your hands!), let it rise for 10 minutes and it's ready to become crust.
Bake for 7 to 8 minutes, remove from oven and top with olive oil, tomatoes, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese and fresh basil. A few more minutes in the oven and you have a pizza that's better than any frozen one you could buy, and would take about the same amount of time to make.
There you have it. A delicious pizza for busy people that's easy to make.
