  • Meal Type

  • Courses

  • Meal Origin


These little pizzas come in handy for after-school snacks, lunch boxes or parties – so next time you have leftover dough, cook and freeze them for a later date. The topping flavours are endless, so have fun creating your favourite. In a pizza oven, they only take 2-3 minutes or in the oven 10-12.

  • ½ batch pizza dough
  • 1 cup tomato pizza sauce
  • 1½ cups grated pizza cheese
  • 2-3 Kransky or chorizo sausages, sliced
  • Fresh herbs (rosemary,thyme, basil)
  • Rocket leaves, feta, olive oil,to serve
  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C. Divide the dough into about12 balls, then roll out each to about 10cm. Place the dough rounds on large lined baking trays, leaving room for themto expand.
  2. Coat each round with sauce and top with grated cheese and a few slices of sausage. Sprinkle with herbs and bake for 10-12 minutes until golden and bubbling.
  3. Transfer onto a serving plate or board, and top with rocket leaves, crumble over feta and drizzle with olive oil.

About Jo Wilcox

"I have had a love of food my whole life. Lucky for me my mum allowed me to play in the kitchen from the very beginning – from sitting up on the bench watch her peeling peaches for preserving or planning dinner parties from her many Womans Weekly Cookbooks. Starting in my local beach café, I went onto professional cookery training and my big foodie OE working as a professional chef and nanny. At 21 I launched my first restaurant. The following years saw me owning a gourmet cake and dessert shop and then a pasta deli before I discovered the world of food styling. Today I work in food styling making food look beautiful and tasty in packaging and advertising shoots, as well as my most important role yet – Food Editor of New Zealand Woman’s Weekly. I aim to provide great meal solutions that are interesting and approachable, and of course gorgeous foodie photos that make you want to cook them! I love the feedback and the knowledge that people actually cook them and have great results. If I can give someone a love of cooking and enjoying family meal times and gatherings then my job is done!" See
