Tips for Homemade Pizza Buns

There are some tips that can make this recipe turn out well. Make sure to follow them if you want to ensure a delicious result.

  • Make sure the pizza dough is at room temperature before rolling it out. This will allow for easy rolling.  If it is too cold it will not stretch out properly. This could cause problems with the dough when it comes time to cook it.
  • Short on Time? Warm the dough in the microwave on 50% power for 20-second intervals, and flip each time until it is soft.  Just make sure not to allow it to cook for too long. You want your dough to be set properly when creating the pizza buns.
  • You can customize these homemade pizza buns with any toppings you desire.  Add in pepperoni, diced onions or peppers, and fresh basil to add more flavor and create variety. You can even choose whatever type of cheese you desire. Cheddar, mozzarella, or whatever your heart desires works perfectly.
  • Serve with the pizza buns with a side of warmed Classico RISERVA Roasted Garlic sauce for dipping. With the Classico RISERVA sauces, you can’t go wrong. 

If you follow these easy tips, you are sure to be pleased with the result. Delicious, easy, and a fantastic snack. What more could you ask for?

Take this recipe to your next potluck and watch them get devoured in no time.
