Make pizzeria-style pizza at home. It's easy when you have Bisquick® mix.
cups Original Bisquick™ mix
cup very hot water
tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
sticks (1 oz each) mozzarella string cheese, cut in half lengthwise
cup refrigerated basil pesto (from 7-oz container)
bag (7 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese with sun-dried tomatoes and basil or plain mozzarella cheese (1 3/4 cups)
cups 1/8-inch strips yellow, red and green bell peppers
Move oven rack to lowest position. Heat oven to 450°F. Spray 12-inch pizza pan with cooking spray. In large bowl, stir Bisquick mix, water and oil with fork until soft dough forms; beat vigorously 20 strokes. Cover; let stand 8 minutes.
Pat or press dough in bottom and 1 inch over side of pizza pan. Place string cheese along edge of dough, overlapping if necessary. Fold 1-inch edge of dough over and around cheese; press to seal.
Bake 6 to 7 minutes or until lightly browned around edges.
Spread pesto over warm crust. Sprinkle with 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese; top with bell peppers and remaining 3/4 cup cheese. Bake 11 to 14 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.
For a heartier version, add 1/4 cup diced smoked ham to the pizza toppings.
To add crispness to the crust, sprinkle cornmeal over the greased pan.
