Pizza Pops

I adore anything miniature. Miniature toiletries, miniature cakes, miniature pizzas….

Cute right..?

I’m going to leave the amounts of things up to you, because it’s personal preference. Also it will depend on how many of these little guys you want to make. A block of ready made puff pastry will make approx 30-35, perfect for a party.

For the Pizza Pops, you will need:

Puff pastry or pizza dough
Tomato purée
Grated cheese of your choice
Dried Thyme
Lollipop sticks (available here
Some plain flour for dusting

Alternative toppings:

Salami (for mini salami rounds, chop a Peperami into little discs)
Ham
Pineapple
Tiny pieces of pepper
Sweetcorn

Pre heat your oven to 200⁰C


Start by rolling out your dough or pastry to approx 1.5 inches thick on a lightly flour dusted surface. Use a round cookie cutter to cut out as many pizza bases as you need.

Next, insert a lollipop stick into the bottom of the circle, about an inch into the dough.

Then it’s time to get creative with the toppings.

Spread a little tomato purée onto the pizza bases.

Then add a little grated cheese, I used Cheddar. The reason my cheese looks a little odd is because it’s frozen. I don’t eat grated cheese unless it’s ‘cooked’ so keeping it in the freezer makes no difference and it lasts longer!

Pop them onto a baking tray & into the oven for 10 minutes.

Sprinkle a little dried thyme on top when they come out of the oven.

You can also make mini Calzone. Again roll out the dough and cut out circles, but this time stretch the circle a bit before adding the filling.

I spread mine with tomato purée, covered with cheese & then added some left over Ratatouille. Again the choice of filling is completely up to you.
This time place the lollipop stick inside & fold over, pressing the sides down with a fork. Pop into the oven for 10 minutes.

Oh and I had a teeny bit of dough left, so I made this little cutie, he was too small for a stick.

    Oh. My. Word. This is amazing!
    It never occurred to me that savoury things like this could also be done. I'm so used to seeing cake pops!
    I will be trying the pizza recipe soon!
