Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (17 1/3 ounce) canhome-style extra rich Pillsbury Grands refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 3 tablespoons basil pesto
  • 24 slices pepperoni (about 1 1/2 oz.)
  • 3 tablespoons pizza sauce
  • 13 cup green bell pepper, strips
  • 2 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Heat oven to 375°F.
  2. Separate dough into 8 biscuits. With serrated knife, cut each biscuit into 2 layers, making 16 dough rounds.

  4. Place 3 pepperoni slices in each dough-lined muffin cup. Spread about 1 teaspoon pizza sauce over pepperoni in each cup. Arrange bell pepper strips evenly over pizza sauce. Sprinkle cheese evenly over bell pepper. Top each with dough round, pesto side up; gently tuck dough edge into muffin cup.
  5. Bake at 375°F for 16 to 20 minutes or until deep golden brown. Remove from muffin cups; place on wire rack. Cool 10 minutes. Serve warm.
