Pro tip: Customize your pizza! Add black pitted olives or jalapeños to your pepperoni pizza or try a Hawaiian pizza casserole using chopped ham and canned pineapple.
Pro tip: For a garlicky touch in your biscuits crust, mix 3 tablespoons of olive oil with two teaspoons of garlic powder and 1 teaspoon of oregano. Place the biscuits in a freezer bag and add the olive oil and garlic mixture. Shake it and proceed to step 1!
