1 can (13.8 ounce) Pillsbury® refrigerated classic pizza crust

2 teaspoons olive oil

1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (2 ounce)

1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (6 ounce)

BBQ Chicken Pizza Square:

1tablespoon chopped red onion

1/2 cup refrigerated honey hickory barbecue sauce with shredded chicken, large pieces cut up

Margherita Pizza Square:

1 tablespoon shredded fresh Parmesan cheese

4 to 5 (1/4-inch-thick) slices plum (Roma) tomato (about 1 large tomato)

1 tablespoon thin fresh basil strips

Hawaiian Pizza Square:

2 tablespoons pizza sauce

2 slices Canadian bacon, quartered

1/4 cup pineapple tidbits, well drained (from 8 ounce can)

Pepperoni Pizza Square:

2 tablespoons pizza sauce

8 to 10 slices pepperoni (from 3 ounce package)


  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray; sprinkle with cornmeal. Unroll dough; place on cookie sheet. Starting at center, press out dough into 14x12-inch rectangle. Brush dough with olive oil.
  2. Bake 6 to 8 minutes. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese in the shape of a "plus sign" on crust, dividing the crust into four squares. Top each square with 1 of the 4 variations listed above to make 4 different squares; if desired, on the Pepperoni Pizza Square, arrange the pepperoni to make a happy face. Top entire pizza with mozzarella cheese.
  3. Bake 10 to 13 minutes longer or until crust is deep golden brown and cheese is melted and bubbly. Cut pizza into 4 squares; cut each square into 4 squares to make a total of 16 squares.
  4. This recipe lends itself well to other variations. Get creative and add your family's favorite toppings!
  5. For a perfect party pizza, follow Steps 1 and 2, dividing the crust into four squares with lines of shredded Cheddar cheese as described. Then provide toppings (meats, cheeses, sauces, fruits, etc.), allowing guests to complete a square with the ingredients of their choice.
  6. Wonderful for a teen sleepover party!
