Reuben Pizza Ingredients

Pizza night just got a makeover! Serve Reuben pizza with some extra Thousand Island salad dressing for dipping.

  • Dough – Make this Reuben pizza with either store-bought or homemade pizza dough.
  • Sauce – I keep the sauce simple, using garlic and olive oil to let the Reuben flavors really shine through.
  • Toppings – This Reuben pizza recipe has the same toppings as our fave sandwich. Leftover corned beef (or deli corned beef) and sauerkraut are baked into the pizza, while pickles are added before serving. I like to add a little bit of caraway which mimics a little bit of rye bread flavor.
  • Cheese – I like combining Swiss and mozzarella cheeses in this recipe for the perfect texture and flavor.

How to Make Reuben Pizza

  1. Spread dough with the garlic and butter/oil.
  2. Top with meat, cheese, and sauerkraut (per the recipe below).
  3. Bake until the dough is lightly brown at the edges and the cheese is melted.
  4. Top with sliced dill pickles and serve with extra Thousand Island on the side for dipping!

Tips and Tricks

  • Leftovers can be wrapped in plastic or foil and stored in the fridge for up to four days.
  • Reheat leftovers in the oven to restore crispness to the dough.
  • The ingredients used in Reuben pizza are not freezer-friendly. It’s best when enjoyed fresh!

  1. Delicious pizza! We used your homemade pizza crust recipe I used 1/2 cup rye flour in place of a 1/2 cup of all purpose and added 1 teaspoon caraway seeds to the dough. I made your garlic butter and loved that as the ‘sauce ‘ for the Reuben pizza. Yum!5 stars

    1. I love the idea of adding caraway to the dough, thank you for the tip! So glad you loved this pizza!
