Tomato Cheese and Pepperoni Dog Biscuits
I am still working on perfecting these, and will post any changes to them in the future. If you want to try them yourself, go ahead as they are tasty, but I wanted to do some tweaking on them. Like next time I would chop the pepperoni and for non fur people I might add some herbs, garlic or onion. See Notes at end of Directions section.

- 1 pkg
- 7.5 oz bisquick buttermilk biscuit mix
- 1/2 c
- petite diced tomatoes with juice
- 3/4 c
- finely shredded cheese of your choice. i used colby/cheddar mixture.
- 2/3 c
- v-8 vegetable juice (may use more or less)
- 1/8 to 1/4 pkg
- turkey pepperoni
1Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a 12 x 18 (or similar size) jelly roll pan with foil or parchment and spray with cooking spray.
2In a small mixing bowl, combine the biscuit mix, cheese, tomatoes with some juice, and most of the V-8. Mix well and if the mixture seems dry, add more V-8. The final batter should be thicker than a regular cake batter, but not as solid as a drop biscuit dough. You need to be able to spread it with a spatula easily.
3Place the batter in the prepared pan and spread to cover the entire pan about 1/4 to 1/3 inch thick. Watch that the tomatoes don't leave any holes where you spread them. Try to get it as evenly spread as possible to avoid thin burnt spots.
4Top with pepperoni and bake at 450°F for 8 to 15 minutes, or until golden and completely set.
5Remove pan from oven, let cool 5 minutes and then turn over on a cooling rack and remove foil/parchment. Cut into squares with pizza cutter or sharp knife while still warm. These are semi-crackery, but still a little soft when done. Best eaten just out of the oven, save some for the fur people. (hehehe)
6Notes: As I said, I think next time I make these for NON fur people I will try chopping the pepperoni, adding some herbs, and maybe some finely chopped onion and/or peppers. These are really tasty and would make a good TV snack for the guys who like to watch football, or even the Red Hat ladies who lunch. :) And nothing in them is harmful to dogs either, but I would cut them smaller for doggie treats. (I would also dry them more to keep better or store in the fridge.)
These do not keep well after they are cold. I think I would serve them hot or reheated. Because they are made with biscuit mix, they stay semi soft and are crisper just out of the oven. Still experimenting with these.
