What is a pizza pop? Think of it as a mini calzone on a stick. Pepperoni, mushrooms and peppers fill this one but feel free to experiment with your favorite pizza toppings. Serve with a mixed green salad with red-wine vinaigrette. Source: EatingWell Magazine, July/August 2015

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Cut pizza dough into 8 equal portions. Let rest on a lightly floured surface while you assemble the skewers.

  • Thread 2 pepperoni, 2 mushroom halves, 2 pepper pieces and 2 cheese cubes alternately onto eight 6-inch skewers.

  • Stretch and pat each portion of dough into a rectangle approximately 4 inches by 6 inches. Spread 1 1/2 teaspoons sauce on each portion of dough. Place one skewer on each piece of dough, wrap the dough around the skewer and pinch to seal. Place the skewers seam-side down on the prepared baking sheet. Brush with oil and sprinkle with oregano (or basil).

  • Bake until golden, 15 to 17 minutes. Serve with the remaining marinara for dipping.


Make Ahead Tip: Prepare through Step 4, loosely cover and refrigerate for up to 4 hours.

Equipment: Eight 6-inch skewers

Easy cleanup: Recipes that require cooking spray can leave behind a sticky residue that can be hard to clean. To save time and keep your baking sheet looking fresh, line it with a layer of foil before you apply the cooking spray.
