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!
Easy Pizza Twists
- 1 roll refrigerated Pizza Dough
- ¾ cup mozzarella cheese shredded
- ½ cup pepperoni cut in half
- 2 tablespoons butter melted
- ½ teaspoon oregano
- ½ teaspoon parsley
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon parmesan cheese
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Unroll pizza dough and cut into rectangles about 2″ wide by 5″ long.
- Sprinkle oregano and parsley over each rectangle, divide cheese and pepperoni over all rectangles. Gently twist each rectangle pinching the ends.
- Place on a parchment paper lined pan, brush with melted butter and sprinkle parmesan on top.
- Bake 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve with warm tomato or pizza sauce for dipping.

These were great for snacks! Love your creative ideas
Glad you enjoyed them, Mary!
Have you tried freezing and reheating?
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.
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)
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.
thank you it went very well
My family loves pizza and these look delicious! Pinned it.
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?
I haven’t tried it but I think it would work just fine!
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?
They could be prebaked. I would suggest you reheat them in the oven for a few minutes until warm.
I was wondering, do you use shredded parmesan cheese or grated? Thank you, Ann
Either will work in this recipe, I used grated because it happened to be what I had on hand!
