    1. That is so strange! Make sure that the oven was set to the right temp at 425. Also try using a thermometer in your oven to make sure that it is reaching the right temp. Mine only take 15 minutes and the tops are pretty brown and perfectly cooked! Good luck and let me know if they turn out next time! 🙂

  1. I used breadstick dough instead of biscuit dough and it seems to be more like pizza dough. It was delicious! I also made a batch using biscuit dough (since I only had one roll of each kind of dough) and I haven’t tried it yet but they look delicious too!
