So you might recall that I shared a recipe for a Extra-Easy Vegan Bisquick Cheese Pizza a few weeks back. The recipe was a mashup of Bisquick’s own Extra-Easy Pizza recipe and these incredible Cheddar Cheesy Garlic Biscuits I made for veganmofo. It was yummy, but nowhere near as amazaballs as the biscuits, mainly because I omitted the best part – the garlicky margarine sauce! Not so for my second attempt at a Bisquick-based pizza crust, with is – hello! – every bit as amazaballs as the biscuits. More so, actually, since unlike the biscuits, the pizza crust is topped with red sauce, black olives, sundried tomatoes, and a layer of oozy, gooey, melty vegan cheese! SO GOOD.

While this recipe is full of win, it does come with a caveat. In addition to sending this crust over the rainbow of deliciousness and into the land of yumtastic, the garlic margarine sauce also softens the crust up a bit, so that slices require both hands (at best) or a fork and spoon (at most pretentious) for eating. (Of course, leftovers reheated in the toaster oven are much more structurally sound!) So exercise caution and wear a bib. Or at least don’t wear your favorite shirt, in any case. Do: enjoy the shizzoli out of this pizza.

“Buttery” Bisquick Crust Pizza

(Based on this recipe from Betty Crocker and further inspired by these Cheddar Cheesy Garlic Biscuits.)


1 1/2 cups Bisquick mix
1/3 cup very hot water + extra as needed
1 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)

1 tablespoon vegan margarine
1/2 tablespoon garlic powder

The toppings of your choice; we used:
Red sauce
Black olives
Sundried tomatoes
Follow Your Heart mozzarella cheese

Cooking spray (e.g. Pam) or cornmeal


1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F. Grease a 12- to 14-inch pizza pan, or lightly coat a similarly sized pizza stone with cornmeal. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the Bisquick, garlic powder, and hot water and mix well, until a soft dough forms.

2. Press the dough into the pizza pan, using your hands to pat it down evenly. If using a pizza stone, roll the dough out using a rolling pin; add a dash of flour to prevent it from sticking.

3. Heat the margarine in the microwave for thirty seconds or until melted; add the garlic powder and stir well. Using a brush, a spoon, or just your fingertips, lightly spread the “garlic sauce” onto the pizza crust, coating the crust as evenly as possible. Allow the “garlic sauce” to soak into the crust for five minutes or so before continuing.

4. Starting with the red sauce, add your desired toppings; the oregano goes on last! Bake at 450 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese, hot and bubbly. Serve warm!
