Pizza Buns | Cheesy Pizza Buns

The first rain of this winter season…B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L! I wish I could express EXACTLY how I feel right now. It’s raining here since yesterday and I am enjoying this. 😀 Everything just looks so beautiful. ❤  A cup of tea and a plate of hot bhajiyas is all I need right now. What could be better than this? But, I had those calories yesterday so I want something different now ;)…something hot, cheesy, and freshly baked! Pizza? Yeah, anytime.


I have made pizza so many times that even I’m bored with the same process. 😀 So, to make the process more interesting I made Pizza Buns. Not that I hate regular pizza but this is just a way to hide the calories inside the buns and make it look more interesting. 😉 Pizza bun is a treat for every pizza lover. Give this recipe a try and stuff the pizza buns with your choice of stuffing and enjoy the small pizza bites.


These cheesy pizza buns are sure to be hit at every get-together/ house party/ potluck. Try this recipe and I am sure you will never be going to order pizza from the store. Homemade pizzas taste much much better than store bought as they are freshly baked with fresh ingredients. Do you know what is the great thing about homemade pizza is? You can always stuff them with the extra amount of cheese you want.

Step 1- In a large mixing bowl, take warm water and mix pizza crust yeast to it. Wait until it gets frothy. Then add sugar, salt, and oil to the bowl and mix with a spoon

Step 2- Add all-purpose flour to the mixture and knead for good 5mins. Add more flour if required. Cover the dough and keep aside. Meanwhile, the dough is rising (although it’s not required because we are using instant yeast here) prepare the pizza stuffing

Step 3- Heat butter in a pan and saute garlic and crushed pepper for 30secs. Add the chopped veggies and fry on high flame until half cooked (3-4minx max). Add oregano, pizza seasoning, ketchup, and salt as required. Mix well and turn off the flame. let it cool down completely

Step 4- Add grated cheese when the mixture cools down completely. Mix gently and keep the mixture aside

Step 5- Preheat the oven to 425ºF. That’s how the dough looks like after 45mins. 😀 Divide the dough into 12-14 equal parts. Roll each into a small and thick poori and place 2tbsp pizza stuffing in the center and start pleating from the edges. Bring in the center and close so that the stuffing doesn’t come out. Follow the steps for the rest of the ball

Step 6- Grease a baking tray and arrange them in the tray. Brush them with melted butter and seasoning mix. Place the tray in the heated oven and bake for 13-15mins. Remove the tray from the oven and brush some more butter and pizza seasoning mix over it

Serve the pizza buns with coke or choice of your drink and enjoy. 🙂
