Pizza on a Stick

Pizza on a Stick

I’m not going to pretend I don’t love flowers, but a bouquet of pizza may just be the way to my heart. I love the idea of serving these as finger food at a party, but they’re also great for a meal or a snack, and I’m assuming kids will love them! These were super easy to make and you could definitely change them up or make them vegetarian by using different pizza toppings. They have great pizza flavor and they’re fun to eat!

If I were to serve these at a party I would get a vase and a block of that green Styrofoam that florists use and put it inside. Once the pizza buns were skewered it’d make it easier to arrange them in a vase the way you want them. Then you have a beautiful pizza arrangement for your guests to grab from! I should have done that for my photos because I tried to put mine in a vase but getting any of them to face the same direction was an exercise in futility. If you don’t care about having them face the same way, just a vase should the do the trick. You might also like to serve them with a bowl of additional pizza sauce for dipping.

Pizza on a Stick Prep

Pizza on a Stick

Yield: 20 pieces

Ingredients:

  • 13.8 oz can of refrigerated pizza dough
  • ½ cup pizza sauce
  • 1 ½ cups shredded reduced fat 2% Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 17 turkey pepperoni (such as Hormel)
  • 20 bamboo skewers (or other shish kabob skewers or popsicles sticks)

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Unroll the pizza dough and flatten into a large rectangle. Spread the pizza sauce evenly across the surface of the dough and then spread the cheese over it. Sprinkle the Italian seasoning over the pizza and follow with the pepperoni.
  3. Starting with the long side, roll the dough, with the toppings inside, until you reach the other end. Pinch the seam to seal. Cut the roll into 20 even pieces using kitchen shears. I cut the roll in half and then each of those pieces in half and then each of those into five to make it easier.
  4. Place the pizza buns on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown and the cheese is melted. Let cool for 5 minutes. Stick a skewer into each bun.

  1. These look awesome and I can’t wait to try these. I think I could be won over by a bouquet of pizza too!

  2. Oh. my. goodness – these were so good. I used the “thin crust” refrigerated pizza dough, and doubled the pepperoni, but left out the sticks. It meets the pizza craving in a fun package. We will definitely be making these again soon!

  3. Yay, glad you loved them! I definitely thought they were fun 🙂

  4. I made these for a Christmas party on Saturday. They were a HUGE hit. So big that they were literally gone in 5 seconds! Guess next time I’ll make double. HAHA.

  5. I am definitely going to try these next week. My grandchildren love the pizza rolls and pizza bites available in the store. I feel better when I know what’s in the food. We also enjoy spending time in the kitchen. This sounds like a perfect recipe for us.

  6. Did you make them ahead of time and then refrigerate them? Did you serve them cold?

    • You could serve them cold or warm. I ate them warm. If you serve them room temp or cold you may want to serve them with warm pizza sauce for dipping!

    • Love your new layout… I had a hard time saving recipes to Ziplist… much easier, or maybe it was just me…lol!!! LOVE YOUR STUFF, so much easier to eat better… You take all the hard work out of eating healthier and following an eating plan….
      Thank-You

  7. This is awesome and extremely kid friendly! My daughter eats everything cause I’m a foodie and do is she at 16 months and I love it! Made these for her and her cousins they are them all. And the parents didn’t complain!

  8. Is the 17 Turkey Pepperoni – 17 pieces or a weight or package size?

  9. I may never buy another bagel bite again. I CANNOT wait to try this. Further, I am wondering if you can assemble, cut and freeze to have on hand for a future snack….

  10. Mine did not turn out so pretty…but they were DELICIOUS! Thanks for another winner!
