I know I’ve said it before, but I love Pillsbury. Even growing up as a kid Pillsbury products were a regular in our house. To be honest I think we eat something made by Pillsbury every week, but I really became a big fan of the brand when I realized how much of their food Nick could eat. Having a food allergy is hard, and I know I’ve said it a lot, but I do everything I can to make things normal for him. When I realized that the majority of Pillsbury food was egg free (including those oh so yummy cinnamon rolls) I could have jumped for joy. Pillsbury has helped make Nick’s life more flavorful, and they have made my job a lot easier. I’ve recently found out though just how easy they really can make my life with their fast dinner ideas.
Back to school time has occurred and for our family it’s exhausting. I’m sure you’re wondering how that can be when the only child in the house is two. Well, I manage the snack stand at a big golf course, and my staff consists entirely of college students. Come September, when we’re still open all week, they have to go back to school which means I’m working 9-10 hour days four days a week. After working that long, and commuting, the last thing I feel up to is coming home to cook supper. I’d really like to come home and go to bed, but we can’t win them all. Not up for cooking or not we still need to eat and I can only have a bowl of cereal so many nights right? I knew something had to be done so I checked out all of Pillsbury easy 30 minute recipes.
They have a lot of fast dinner ideas that require Pillsbury Grands! Biscuits. This is great for us because we
always have them in the house. Nick has been fussy recently with food because of his teething, so I wanted to pick something that I thought he would really want to eat. I decided to try the Pillsbury Grands! Mini Pizzas recipe. Who doesn’t love their own personal pizza? I did make a minor change though and that was on the toppings. Pepperoni and I don’t get along, so I decided to use my favorite pizza toppings: mushrooms, black olives, and green peppers.
Oh my gosh these pizzas were amazing! In the words of my picky two year old they were, “Mmm, yummy!” Nick used to be a big pizza fan, but he has been iffy with it recently, but not with these. He couldn’t get enough of them! Personally I think he liked having the Grands! Biscuits (which he loves anyways) for the crust more than a normal pizza crust. The Grands! Biscuits gave it such an interesting added flavor, and they were so easy to make. The thing that took the longest was chopping up the veggies, which next time I’d prep ahead of time so they were already set to go. I actually have enough pizza sauce to make another batch and I can’t wait to do so!
Pillsbury really does help make a busy mom’s life easy. Did you know that they have an entire recipe booklet full of their Grands! Biscuit recipes that you can download? There are a lot of great recipes and you should really try them.
