Updated Sep 16, 2008

Ingredients

  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder or onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups Original Bisquick™ mix
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese, (6 ounces)
  • 2 cups cut-up cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup sliced ripe olives
  • 1 medium avocado, sliced

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. Mix tomato sauce, oregano, basil, salt, garlic powder and pepper; set aside. Stir Bisquick mix and cold water until soft dough forms. Pat or roll dough into 12-inch circle on ungreased cookie sheet with hands dusted with Bisquick mix; pinch edge, forming 1/2-inch rim. Or pat dough in 12-inch pizza pan.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Store unripe avocados at room temperature and ripe ones in a refrigerator for up to a week.
  • tip 2
    If you’re really in a hurry, go ahead and use a ready-made pizza crust for the base of this spectacular pizza.
  • tip 3
    To prevent the avocado from turning brown, brush the cut surfaces with lemon juice.
