I clearly love Pesto, this is my third post involving the delicious sauce out of 13. I’ll try and post some more variety in the coming posts since it is the spice of life. Anyways, my family has always had Bisquick mix on hand ever since I can remember and it can make cooking so much more convenient in a pinch. It worked great for the crust, since I didn’t have any yeast to make a good crust from scratch. One of the best things about pizza is how easy they are to make and how customizable they are, oh and they taste amazing. This pizza only took about 20 minutes to make and cook. It looks like there are a lot of ingredients but that’s because I like to season the crust which is completely optional.

Bisquick Pizza Crust

  • 3 cups Original Bisquick Mix
  • 2/3 cup of very hot water
  • 1 lb Chicken
  • 1 cup  shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup of Pesto Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon Oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon marjoram
  • 1/4 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1/3 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning

Bisquick Pizza crust with Pesto


Preheat the oven to 450 F. Cut chicken into 1 inch pieces and sprinkle poultry seasoning over them until they are well coated. Fry them on medium heat for 5-6 minutes. While the oven is preheating and the chicken is cooking get your crust ready.

Place bisquick, hot water, garlic powder, pepper, oregano, basil, marjoram and rosemary into a bowl and stir about 20 times. Knead dough with your hands until the dough becomes a ball. Place dough on a clean countertop and roll into a circle or square. Fold the edges in 1/2 inch to 1 inch depending on how much crust you like. Spray a pizza pan or stone with cooking spray so that the dough doesn’t stick. Move the dough to the pan and evenly spread the pesto sauce around the dough. Do the same with the cheese. Once the chicken is done cooking place them on top and pop the pizza in the oven for 7-10 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Remove, cut, serve and enjoy.

Matt Fax’s year-end mix is awesome and it took me on a ride of some of my favorite songs from 2013! Enjoy the 60 songs he crammed into 1 hour.

  2. I love pesto, and it’s a great alternative to using tomato sauce on pizza. It’s great that you’ve seasoned the crust as well–a good crust can really make or break a pizza. Definitely pinning.
