Betty Crocker’s pizza crust recipe calls for mixing Bisquick, hot water and vegetable oil. The ratios for these ingredients and cooking techniques vary depending on the desire for a thick or thin pizza crust.

For a thick-crust pizza, start by mixing together 3 cups Bisquick mix, 2/3 cup hot water and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil until a dough forms. Beat the dough for 20 strokes, then let the dough sit for eight minutes. Press the dough into a jelly roll pan greased with shortening. For a crispier crust, sprinkle the pan with cornmeal before adding the dough. Top the dough with pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese and any desired toppings. Bake the pizza at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 to 20 minutes.

To make a thin-crust pizza, mix together 1 1/2 cups Bisquick mix, 1/3 cup hot water and 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and beat the dough for 20 strokes. Form the dough into a 12-inch round on a greased cookie sheet or pizza pan. Top the dough with pizza sauce, meat and vegetable toppings and cheese. Bake the pizza at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 12 to 15 minutes. Suggested toppings include ground beef, Italian sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms or chopped green peppers.
