Cornmeal, if desired

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)


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.

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.

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.

This recipe lends itself well to other variations. Get creative and add your family's favorite toppings!

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.

Wonderful for a teen sleepover party!
