Animal-Shaped Mini Pies Make Pizza Night Even More Fun

Pizza’s a win no matter what, but when you want to up the fun factor, turn your food into a friend! All you have to do is shape your dough and arrange your toppings to make these cute critter faces.

Animal Mini Pizzas

Level: Easy

What You Need

  • Pizza dough (buy it or make your own)
  • Kitchen shears
  • Pizza sauce
  • Cheese
  • Toppings
  • Instructions

    1. Roll out your pizza dough and use kitchen shears to shape it into your favorite animal.

    Pro Tip: It’s trickier to shape a bigger slab of dough, so opt for personal-sized pizzas.

    2. Bake the naked crusts at 450 F for 4-5 minutes. In the meantime, prepare all your toppings. We used chopped olives and peppers, but the sky (or the fridge) is the limit!

    Good to Know: Pre-baking helps set the shape of the crust, so they’re easier to decorate.

    3. Layer the sauce and cheese, then add the facial features. Don’t worry about being too detailed — the eyes, ears and nose are most important.

    4. Pop the pizzas back in the oven for another 4-6 minutes. If you plan to add any finishing touches with cheese, pull the pizzas back out, add the cheese and bake for 2-3 more minutes.
