Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Pillsbury Grand Biscuits
  • Mozzarella Cheese Sticks
  • Butter
  • Garlic Seasoning
  • Italian Seasoning
  • Pizza Sauce

Helpful Baking Tools

  • Pastry Brush – You think you can do without it but it is so much easier with one. I highly recommend having one of these around. They make your life easier.
  • Sheet Pan – I like to use these affordable ones from Amazon.
  • Parchment Paper – I like to use parchment paper because it makes it easy to transfer your Christmas tree to another platter or plate. Otherwise you have to move each ball one by one and it won’t look the same.
  • Mixing Bowls – I think I’ve linked these in every single blog post since I’ve started. These are a staple in my kitchen accessories. They come in all sizes and are so versatile. I love them! Definitely a kitchen must have.

Do I have to use mozzarella cheese?

Not at all. Use whatever cheese or stuffing you’d like. Cooking is fun and meant to be customized to your liking. You can also add some cheese sprinkled on top with some parsley.

What kind of pizza sauce do you recommend?

I love the Rao’s brand of everything. It’s getting a little expensive so for one of my Frugal Fridays, I made my own sauce. It’s actually very easy and so affordable.
