3
tablespoons pizza sauce
1/3
cup thin bite-size green bell pepper strips
1/2

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Separate dough into 8 biscuits. With serrated knife, cut each biscuit into 2 layers, making 16 dough rounds.

Sprinkle cheese evenly over bell pepper. Top each with dough round, pesto side up; gently tuck dough edge into muffin cup.
