Guys, today I have for you Christmas tree mini pizzas! These festive snacks are fun to make and taste delicious. But hey, anything pizza tastes delicious, right? Not only are they cute and delicious, but they are ready in 30 minutes for the perfect small bite appetizer!

By the way, what are you all baking this year? I will be baking Linzer Cookies and gingerbread cookies. I have already made Homemade Gingerbread Syrup and Homemade Gingerbread Spice Mix. When wrapped nicely, these would all make great DIY edible gifts (in case you were looking for some ideas).

Now these Christmas tree mini pizzas wouldn’t work well as gifts but if you are planning a Christmas party or looking for some cool ideas to make with kids then you should put them on your TO DO list.

MY OTHER RECIPES

They are very easy to make and in 30 minutes you are ready to serve!

I got 24 Christmas tree mini pizzas out of my puff pastry but the amount can vary depending on the size of your Christmas tree cutter. Mine was not very large but the size was perfect for a 2-bite snack.  I wouldn’t use a cutter that is smaller than 2.5 inch.

Ingredients needed for Christmas Tree Mini Pizzas:

  • Puff pastry
  • Green pepper
  • Grated cheese
  • Pepperoni snack sticks
  • Pizza sauce

To make these Christmas tree mini pizzas I used a sheet of puff pastry. You can use pizza dough but I can tell you from my own experience that cutting out the trees was a real challenge as the dough was way too soft and sticky. If you decide to try making these with the pizza dough, I recommend placing it in the freezer for about 20-30 minutes. This should make it easier for you to cut the trees out.

The puff pastry will rise in the oven so use reasonable amount of toppings. For the toppings, you can use anything you like. If you don’t like green pepper, omit it completely or use a few slices of olives. I could not find pepperoni snack sticks in my local supermarket so I got some Spanish salami snack sticks instead. Ham will also work well.

Because these are tiny pizzas you only need a few tablespoons of pizza sauce. I made mine by mixing dried oregano, ketchup, garlic and olive oil together. You can use any pizza sauce of your choice but if you have nothing on hand, this one works perfectly.

Baking these Christmas tree mini pizzas only takes about 10 minutes. Now this does not mean that it can’t take longer than that. Every oven bakes differently and also the thickness of your puff pastry might be different from the one I used so keep an eye on them when making them for the first time.

Recipe Notes

  1. These mini pizzas are very versatile when it comes to the ingredients so feel free to use what you like. Just bear in mind they will be quite small so you will be able to top each tree with only a few pieces.
  2. Use any pizza sauce you like. Pesto is also a great option. For homemade pizza sauce combine 1 tbsp dried oregano, 4 tbsp ketchup, 1 tsp olive oil (optional) and 2 garlic cloves (minced).
  3. The puff pastry will rise in the oven but it will deflate a bit after it has been taken out of the oven.
  4. The tree cutter I used here is 3 inch long & 2.4 inch wide (in the widest part).
