Mini Pizzas

These Mini Pizzas are bite-sized pizzas topped with cheese, tomatoes, fresh basil and more. They’re perfect for lunch, dinner, or even as an appetizer at parties!

You could take this idea for “mini” pizzas and use your favorite toppings, like BBQ Chicken Pizza, Caprese Pizza, or Artichoke Pizza. Any version would make a great appetizer.

Who here loves PIZZA?!

Now that I think about it, I don’t think I’ve ever met someone that didn’t like pizza. It’s just SO good!! Since it’s one of those foods that everyone loves, we have it once a week in our family.  I wanted to try a new “pizza” recipe and this what we came up with.

If you’ve ever had Margherita Pizza before, you’ll know how delicious the simple combination of ingredients is!

These mini versions were especially fun for the kids to help with. They had a blast using the circle cookie cutter to cut circle dough pieces.

For an easy lunch or dinner idea (or even as an appetizer at a party), I think you’ll enjoy these Mini Pizzas!

How to Make Mini Pizzas

PREP. Preheat oven to 425.

TOPPING. Combine the topping ingredients in a small bowl.

DOUGH. Unroll pizza dough on a lightly floured surface and roll into a rectangle. Use a small circle cookie cutter or a glass to cut out 20 round pizza doughs. Re-roll scraps and cut out dough and place on a greased cookie sheet.

TOP. Sprinkle with cheeses and top with tomato mixture.

BAKE. Bake for 8 to 10 min. or until edges of crusts are golden brown.

CUSTOMIZE: So many ways change up these mini pizzas, but just add your favorite toppings: pepperoni, sausage, bacon, ham and pineapple, veggies and more!

Freezable: If you have leftovers, or want to make a bunch ahead of time you can store them in the freezer. In fact, they make a really easy snack for older kids to heat up on their own. 

  1. Allow them to cool and place them in a single layer in a Freezer Ziploc. 
  2. Freeze for up to 2 months. 
  3. Reheat in a toaster oven or microwave. For larger batches reheat in the oven set at 400°F until warm throughout.

    I used the yellow and red grape tomatoes from Costco because that’s what I had on hand. So delicious!! Next time I think I’ll try them with fresh mozzarella.

    1. Fresh mozzarella is SO good! And I bet your mini pizzas looked cute and colorful with the yellow tomatoes added in. 🙂
