Pizza Dippers

I may need a Pinterst intervention, because this is yet another recipe I found on there.  It originated from the blog, The Farm Girl, and it is a simple and good dinner or lunch option.  The Farm Girl calls her pizza pancakes, but I preferred pizza dippers for mine because they turned out a little too thick to really call them pancakes.  Next time I make them, I will add just a tad more milk to make them more like pancakes.

The Farm Girl also used pepperoni in hers, but I chose Italian sausage because that is what I had.  I bet pepperoni would be awesome.  C liked them, but thought they weren’t quite enough for a supper but would be good with chili.  We had the leftovers with chili the next day and he was right.  They were great dipped in chili!

2 cups Bisquick baking mix

1 c. milk (Next time, I will add just a little more. Maybe another 1/8 of a cup.)

2 eggs

3/4 c. shredded Italian (Pizza) cheese

1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 lb. Italian sausage, cooked

2 tsp. Italian seasoning

1/4 tsp. Garlic Salt

Pizza sauce, for dipping

Parmesan Cheese, garnish


Heat griddle or skillet and grease, if necessary.  In a large bowl, combine the Bisquick mix, Italian seasoning and garlic salt. Combine eggs and milk and stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in the cheeses and Italian sausage.



Pour approximately 1/4 cup onto hot griddle, cook until bubbles form on top and edges are dry. Flip and cook until golden brown.


Cut pancakes with pizza cutter in to 4 triangles, garnish with Parmesan cheese, if desired, and serve with pizza sauce for dipping.  Enjoy!

C & I really like pancakes, but we rarely have them for breakfast.  I use them for suppers 90% of the time.  Fix a few pieces of bacon or sausage to go with them and you are ready to eat! 

I have several flavored pancake recipes that I use, but I did not have a good basic one until I found this one.  The original recipe was published at the blog “The Way The Cookie Crumbles”, and there is always good food to be seen over there.

1 cup (5 ounces) flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 egg
2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
1 cup buttermilk (I use powdered buttermilk.  For 1 cup of buttermilk, use 4 tbsp. of the dried.  Add it with the flour mixture.  Then add 1 cup of water when the recipe calls for the buttermilk.)
In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk the egg until thoroughly combined, then add the butter and buttermilk (see note above). Pour the liquid
ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk gently until batter is mostly mixed but still contains small lumps.

Let the batter rest while the pan heats, at least 5 minutes.  Heat a non-stick skillet or a griddle over medium heat. Spray with non-stick spray.  Using a ¼ cup measure, pour the pancake batter onto the hot griddle.


When the pancakes are golden brown, after about 2-3 minutes, flip to cook the other side another 2-3 minutes. Keep warm in oven heated to 200 degrees.
