Homemade Holiday Themed Pizzas
Everyone likes the holidays, and who doesn’t like pizza? Here are a few homemade holiday-themed pizzas to try at home with your friends and family, and a recipe for a night of holiday joy.
Christmas Tree Pizzas
What better holiday-themed pizza idea than a Christmas tree pizza? Simply cut and shape your dough into triangles and make your pizza the way you normally would. Then create your Christmas tree look using drops of pizza sauce as decorative balls. You can cut thin bell pepper slices to imitate garland strands — and feel free to get creative.
If you have little ones who love to decorate or kids who love to get creative, then pizza wreath pizzas are a great idea for the entire family. Start by making a thicker dough, and cut the center out of your dough, creating a wreath-sized hole. Now the family can have fun creating that wreath look using ingredients like fresh-cut red onion, slices of green peppers, sliced baby red tomatoes, and their other favorite toppings.
Thanksgiving Leftovers Pizza
For some people, one of their favorite parts of the holidays, like Thanksgiving, is all the leftovers. Those leftovers also make for some great ingredients for a Thanksgiving leftover pizza. That’s right, just use that leftover green bean casserole, turkey, mashed potatoes, and any of your other favorites to get started. Now, all you need is the dough for the pizza crust and shredded cheese. Be sure to partially cook the pizza crust for a few minutes before topping your pizza, finishing it with the cheese (to bind everything together). 12 to 15 minutes later, you’ll have leftovers and pizza in one.
Pizza Candy Canes
You can make pizza candy canes using any kind of pizza you like. Simply cut the dough into oversized candy cane shapes. Then, cut thin strips of dough to lay over the toppings. Remember to lay the strips at an angle to create the candy cane look, and the kids will love that part too.
Christmas Tree Pull-Apart Bread
This great holiday pizza bread recipe is simple and fun and tastes great. Begin by cutting strips of pizza dough. Place a pinch of mozzarella cheese on each strip then roll them up and form them into balls. Now, use the balls to form the shape of a Christmas tree, keeping them firmly pressed together. Brush the dough with butter or garlic butter. To finish, sprinkle with Parmesan and parsley, and bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
