Four ingredients and 20 minutes is all it takes to whip up these quick mini pizzas. Home cook JLT says, "I wanted a simple recipe that my 3-year-old could help me make and this was perfect. I didn't want the pizza too bready so I peeled the biscuit in half before my daughter flattened and pressed it into the muffin tin. My daughter could do every part of this recipe, except put it in the oven and take it out. She was so proud that she made dinner for the family."
