A Grand Little Pizza

Have you ever seen a dish and said "awwww that's so cute."? I know "cute" isn't a word that is used to describe dinner a lot, dessert yes, dinner not so much. But the minute I saw these on a tv commercial that's exactly what I said. Out loud. And yes, I was home alone at the time. Don't judge me. You know you talk to yourself too! I knew these would be a hit at my house. Why? Because I have a little man who is a HUGE fan of not only pizza, but anything that comes in a tiny package. Mini pancakes, popcorn shrimp, mini bananas, he loves them all. (By the way, have you seen the mini bananas in the produce section? Super cute! I am a sucker every time Alex spots them b/c the little monkey just looks too adorable eating a tiny banana!) I wasn't sure how the crust on these would turn out, but it was perfect! Crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside. These made a great quick weeknight supper, with a salad on the side. And I know they will be a hit at our next party as an appetizer. They are truly an oxymoron at it's best: A grand little pizza it is!

Mini Pizzas from Pillsbury.com

1 can Grands biscuits- 8 ct
Small package Pepperoni
1 small can mushrooms
8 oz  pizza blend cheese
1 small jar pizza sauce

Preheat oven to 375. Generously grease 2 large baking sheets. Separate biscuits and using fingers press each biscuit out flat into an approximate 6 inch circle. Top each biscuit w/ 2 tsp. sauce. (I found this amount to fit nicely, but feel free to increase or decrease) Top w/ cheese, pepperoni and mushrooms to taste. (Amounts on these are kind of hard.) Bake for 10-15 minutes until crispy and brown on edges. Serve w/ a side salad.
