Last week I was having one of those days where I was thinking “I needed dinner on the table, like 20 minutes ago!”

I know I talk about how easy it is to make pizza dough and my typical recipe posts don’t include pre-made/processed food…but sometimes I’m simply in survival mode and I really just need to get food the table, no matter what it is.

Thankfully my daughter had been asking for mini pizzas, so when we were at the store I bought those jumbo biscuits that come in the can type things, because I knew making homemade pizza dough just wasn’t in the cards for me that week. So, just as I had imagined, there was a night where we literally had 20 minutes to get dinner on the table so I decided to go for mini pizzas. Luckily I had everything I needed to make this crazy simple meal.

All you have to do it squish out the biscuits a bit to make the base for your pizzas. Put them on an large un-greased jelly roll pan or pizza pan, and dress up the pizza’s with whatever toppings you want. Bake them according to the biscuit package directions. I had a salad kit that I threw together and cut up fresh pineapple while the pizza’s were baking. Everyone loved these and it ended up being a pretty “put together” meal, considering how frazzled I felt!

Sometimes what food on the table isn’t what matters, it’s the fact that it’s there for your family to gather around and spend a few minutes during the day to connect. That’s kind of how I felt about this. My kids helped make these with me, the whole family ate together, and we were able to slow down just a bit to enjoy each other.
