You should definitely try these pizza pops. They are handy and pretty and great for parties and finger food buffets.
Have you ever eaten delicious pizza on a stick? The small party pops are ingenious snacks and finger food in one.
Taste and Occasion
Unlike popsicles, the savory snack also doesn't melt away if it stays on the table a little longer 😉 … Which won't happen anyway. Promise! These little pizza pops are just too tempting, especially when they're fresh out of the oven, of course. The last time I baked them, I created several versions.
One was classic pizza pops made with pizza dough, tomato sauce, and cheese. You can use homemade pizza dough (here's our basic recipe) and store-bought from the refrigerated section. I also baked zucchini cream cheese buns. Basically, a wide variety of ingredients are suitable for topping; the main thing is that they do not have too much volume (large pieces of vegetables or the like) and are not too moist or watery, like cocktail tomatoes.
While the snack is still warm, insert wooden popsicle sticks or cake pop sticks into the freshly baked pizza pops. Since there are quite a few sticks in those packages, you'll probably have to bake the pizza pops a few more times in the future 😉.
How to make the Pizza Pops
Let's start with rolling out the pizza dough on a lightly floured work surface to a large rectangle. Now, spread the tomato sauce thinly and evenly on top and sprinkle with cheese. Attention: Do not use too much sauce and cheese, or the filling will leak.

After that, cut about 20 narrow strips from the dough with a sharp knife - each strip will become a pizza pop. I don't recommend forming a large roll and then cutting it into slices. Carefully roll the strips into snails and spread them a little apart on two baking sheets lined with baking paper. It's time to preheat the oven to 440°F/220°C. Bake the snails for 12-15 minutes, depending on their size. After baking, insert sticks into the dough while the snails are still warm. You can eat the snack when it's still warm or prepare it, freeze it and bake again briefly.
If you want to make the pizza dough yourself, you can use our basic pizza recipe. You will need about half the amount.
- 400 grams (1 ¾ cups) pizza dough, bought or homemade
- 120 grams (½ cup) tomato sauce
- 100 grams (1 cup) grated cheese, e.g. gouda or mozzarella

- Of course, the party pops also taste great with other toppings. For example, for zucchini cream cheese buns, shave long strips of zucchini. Spread some herb cream cheese on the dough, top with the zucchini strips and roll up.
You can make savory party pops into sweet ones just as quickly by using yeast dough instead of pizza dough and sweet toppings like jam, chocolate cream, or sweetened cream cheese. Although the recipe is easy 😉 the way the pizza pops look still makes it unique. By the way: Visit our pizza category. There you will find great inspiration for the next pizza date.
