Bisquick Pizza Crust

Not exactly like the chewy crust made from yeast dough, but it’s fast and really tasty!
  • 3  cups Bisquick
  • 2/3  cup very hot water
  • 2  tablespoons vegetable or olive oil
  • 4 ounces mozzarella cheese, cut in strips*
Mix Bisquick, water and oil together with a fork until soft dough forms, then beat vigorously for about 20 strokes. If dough is too dry to form into a ball you can add another tablespoon or so of water.  Cover and let stand for 10 minutes.
Preheat oven to 450º.  Grease a 12-14″ pizza pan (optional—dust greased pan with cornmeal). Press dough in pan (try to cover entire pan, plus a one-inch overhang.  Place cheese strips along edge of dough. Roll edge of dough over and around cheese; press to seal. Bake 7 minutes and remove from oven.
Spread sauce (about a cup or so) over pizza.  Sprinkle on other desired toppings (cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms, green pepper, etc.).
Put pizza back in oven and bake for about 10 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.
*String cheese pieces cut in half work well for this.  You can also try other cheeses such as mild cheddar or Monterey jack.
