Pizza Twists on a wood board

 Who doesn’t love pizza?  Ooey gooey cheese, zesty sauce with a soft crispy crust…  it’s definitely a favorite around here!

This is a super quick version of pizza, perfect for a weekend snack for the kiddos (or the grown ups!).  These pizza twists take just a few minutes to whip up and even less time to be gobbled up!

I’ve added pepperoni to this recipe… you can add whatever toppings you like.  If you are using toppings that contain more water (such as mushrooms) be sure to cook them first so your twists don’t get soggy!

    1. These freeze and reheat well. Much like pizza, they will soften once frozen so I would suggest reheating them in the oven (or air fryer if you have one). They can be reheated in the microwave too but will be softer.

  1. How long do these take because I am thinking of doing them for a school cooking exam and I have 1 hour and 40 minutes but I need to know how long they take and what drink goes really well with them. (BTW I’m only 12 son no alcohol)5 stars

    1. These take 18-20 minutes to bake, then add on your preparation time which should be about 15-20 minutes for a total time of about 35-40 minutes. Serve with your favorite beverage, I am sure it will be great! Let me know how it turns out.

  2. I wonder what would happen if you spread a little pizza sauce on dough first? My kids love lots of sauce and I think they would think these were too dry, even with the dipping. Have you tried that?

  3. How would these be if taken to an party where appetizers will be served in a while. If wrapped in foil will they still be warm? Would they be soggy by then? Are they good cold or cool?

  4. i would love to get more kid friendly recipes for my five year old. he loves to cook and make crafts. especially loves Halloween! thank you, colleen
