Easy Snack Recipe: Pizza Biscuits

I am pretty sure I hear the words “I’m hungry” out of my children at least 47 times a day. Normally they are sidetracked with school and assorted after school activities but over Christmas break there is nothing for them to to but argue with each other and eat. At over six feet tall already, my 14 year old son can eat a bag of Goldfish crackers in one sitting. I decided I needed to make a more filling snack or start buying stock in the snack cracker companies. I started looking for an easy snack recipe that wouldn’t take too long to make and would save me a bit of money on snacks this week.

Pizza Biscuits for an Easy Snack Recipe

I had a bunch of ricotta cheese left over from our Christmas lasagna so I decided to see what I could create with it. I found a recipe over at Jo and Sue’s blog that looked promising so I decided to play around with the flavors and ingredients and see what I could come up with. I am not usually good at rolling out dough but this went very smoothly. You could add crumbled sausage, veggies, pepperoni or whatever other pizza topping you enjoy. Since I had nothing like that on hand we went with plain sauce and cheese. The edges didn’t seal all that well and there was a bit of leakage of cheese during baking but they were still delicious. These pizza biscuits are an easy snack recipe that will fill your kids up without breaking the bank.

Savory biscuit recipe that is filling enough to eat as lunch!

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes


  • Biscuits
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 3 tsp dried oregano
  • 6 TBSP cold butter, cubed
  • 1 cup milk (plus 1 - 2 Tbsp extra if needed)
  • Filling:
  • 1/3 cup spaghetti sauce
  • 1 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan


  1. To make the dough: In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, garlic powder, and oregano. Mix well.
  2. Add cold butter and cut in until mixture resembles course crumbs (I used my Kitchenaid mixer). Add in the 1 cup milk. Mix gently until dough forms. Add additional milk as needed. You want a slightly soft but well formed dough.
  3. Put the dough on a well floured cutting board. Kneed 4 to 5 times, added a little flour as needed to prevent sticking.
  4. Roll dough to approximately 10 by 15 inches wide.
  5. Make filling: Combine ricotta, mozzarella and Parmesan in a medium sized bowl.
  6. Spread dough with the cheese mixture, leaving approximately 1/2 inch around the edge.
  7. Spread sauce over cheese mixture.
  8. Roll the dough up jelly roll style. Tuck ends under and pinch edges to seal.
  9. Slice 1 inch thick and place on parchment paper line cookie sheets.
  10. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until puffed and lightly browned.
  11. Cool on cookie sheet 5 minutes and move to wire rack.
  12. Enjoy!
