Pizza Biscuits



  • 2 cups self-rising or all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsps plus 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 ½ plus 1 tsp salt
  • 10 tbsps cubed butter, frozen
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk, cold (plus more if needed)
  • 1/2 cup half and half, cold 
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (mixed blend or your favorite)
  • 1/2 cup pepperoni (Optional)
  • 1 cup marinara sauce


CHEF NOTE:  The colder the ingredients the better.  I often chill a metal bowl in the freezer to make biscuits. I also ALWAYS have sticks of buttah in the freezer ready to go for biscuits. I also mix dry ingredients, mix in butter and then re-chill before adding the milk. The warmer the dough is, the less success you'll have.  Work quickly and get your biscuits back in the fridge or in the oven.

  1. Preheat oven to 425 °F.
  2. In a large bowl combine flour, 2 tsps sugar, Italian seasoning, baking powder and 1 ½ tsp salt together. Cut butter into mixture until it begins to look like cornmeal. NOTE:  You can also use a food processor for this part ONLY. 
  3. Stir in the shredded cheese with a rubber spatula or whisk until fully combined.
  4. Butter bottom of skillet and place biscuits in pan.   You don't have to use a skillet but I like it.  If you're making a large batch, a cookie tray is fine.  Be sure to have the biscuits touching each other.  For some reason, biscuits need the support of one another to rise 😆 Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown (the thicker the biscuit, the longer cooking time needed).  If you don't have a convention oven, rotate the tray or skillet half way through.
  5. Remove from oven and brush with more melted butter and sprinkle with remaining salt and sugar.
  6. Add the Italian seasoning, and half the cut, along with the baking powder, sugar, and salt.
  7. After rolling out add the other half of the cheese, fold, and roll out again.
  8. Add marinara to the bottom of the cast iron skillet, the biscuits. Bake for 10 minutes. Pull out and top with pepperoni and continue baking until set and done on sides, top, and bottom (about 20 minutes).
