I know what you’re thinking: Why bother making a list of Pillsbury pizza crust recipes when it’s obvious what you use Pillsbury pizza crust for, right?

Well, as it turns out, there are plenty of things that you can do with Pillsbury pizza crust, and not all of them include making a pizza.

Of course, that’s the most obvious choice, and you’ll find a few of my favorite homemade pizza options here. However, you’ll also find a lot more! 

You can also use the dough to make twisted pretzel bites, biscuit beignets, and even pull-apart Christmas tree bread. 

So suspend your skepticism and give these 10 Pillsbury pizza crust recipes a chance.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust Recipes

1. Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza

Why choose between bacon, cheeseburgers, and pizza when you can have all three?!

It might not be the most health-conscious choice on the list, but it’s undoubtedly one of the tastiest!

The pizza dough is already prepared, so you’ll just have to roll it out.

Then, simply brown and cook the other ingredients, pile them onto the dough, and bake it.

And if you’re wondering what to serve with pizza and burgers, isn’t it obvious? Fries!

2. Mini-Cheese Pizzas

If you’re looking for something a bit simpler, make these mini-cheese pizzas instead. You’ll only need four ingredients for them. 

With nothing more than pizza dough, mozzarella, pizza sauce, and parmesan cheese, you can have several of these saucy, cheesy pizzas on the table in less than an hour.

Of course, you can always add pepperoni, ham, peppers, onions, and anything else you like to them. It doesn’t even take that much extra work.

3. Homemade Pepperoni Pizza Rolls

I’m not going to divulge my age here, but I will say that I’m probably past the prime demographic for pizza rolls. Even so, I love them. I mean, who doesn’t?! 

They’ll have all the robust, garlicky, and cheesy flavors of pizza, but none of the mess.

Plus, they’re small, so you can easily lose track of how many you’ve had and not feel so guilty.

Even so, just because I love pizza rolls doesn’t mean I always want the frozen ones that come out of a bag.

Sometimes, I like to make my own, and it’s remarkably easy to do.

All you’ll need is pizza crust, mozzarella, pizza sauce, a bag of mini-pepperonis, olive oil, and a tablespoon of garlic bread sprinkle. 

Mmmmm… I can taste them now. 

4. Spinach & Cheese Pull-Apart Christmas Tree Bread

If you need something festive but relatively fast and easy to make, you can’t go wrong with spinach and cheese pull-apart bread. 

You’ll shape it to look like a Christmas tree, but you’ll stuff the inside with cheesy spinach goodness.

It’s a bit like spinach-artichoke dip without the artichokes.

And you won’t need anything to dip into this spinach and cheese spread, as it comes stuffed inside every bite of Pillsbury pizza dough.

5. Cheesy Pepperoni Pizza Sticks

Whether you’re craving pizza for lunch or looking for simple appetizers, these pepperoni pizza sticks are just the thing. 

A whole batch uses only six ingredients (pizza crust, pepperonis, mozzarella cheese sticks, butter, garlic powder, and parsley) and takes just 20 minutes to prepare and cook. 

Serve them with some marinara or pizza sauce for dipping, and you’ll have a real hit on your hands. 

6. Twisted Pretzel Bites

These four-ingredient twisted pretzel bites are an insanely easy way to enjoy homemade soft pretzels.

Simply shape your dough and drop it into a pot of boiling water and baking soda. 

When each one is ready, give it a second to cool before covering it in an egg wash and kosher salt.

Then, all you’ll have to do is enjoy them either alone or with some warm queso. 

You’re welcome! 

7. Breakfast Pizza

I used to love waking up to the smell of my mom cooking breakfast pizza in the house. It was always such a wonderful way to start the day. 

It doesn’t give me the same rush as an adult, but I still love breakfast pizza and often make it for brunch and lazy Saturday breakfasts. 

It’s a pretty simple recipe and takes less than an hour. It’s wonderfully cheesy and covered in sausage, veggies, eggs, and more. 

The garlic is a nice touch, as is the hot sauce, but you can leave both out if that’s not your style first thing in the morning. 

8. S’mores Pizza Roll-Up

If you’re more in the mood for something sweet, you can use Pillsbury pizza crust for that, too.

This s’mores pizza roll-up is one of my favorite sweet treats. 

It looks like a pumpkin roll and even has a similar texture, but the ooey-gooey inside is 110% s’mores yumminess! 

It truly has everything – chocolate, marshmallows, brown sugar, graham crackers, and more. Every bite is like a taste of campfire heaven.

9. Biscuit Beignets

Oh yes. Those are beignets – just like the ones you’ll get in New Orleans. And believe it or not, they’re insanely easy to make. 

All you’ll need is Pillsbury pizza crust and vegetable oil to fry it in. Then, simply top the finished product with powdered sugar and enjoy!

They’re a little greasy and not too healthy, but they’re delicious.

Now and then, you’ll have to forget being healthy and treat yourself to something genuinely decadent.

10. Apple French Toast Breakfast Pizza

This apple French toast breakfast pizza is ideal for breakfast or brunch when you want sweet instead of savory, but it’s also an excellent dessert. 

Plus, it’s easy to make! You’ll only need seven ingredients, and the time and effort involved are minimal. 

Best of all, every bite is overflowing with scrumptious apple and cinnamon flavors. It’s to die for.
