It’s time to get creative for your next pizza night! This pizza braid is a fun and easy twist on a typical pizza recipe that you can whip up in less than 30 minutes with only 5 ingredients. No muss no fuss!
- 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated pizza crust
- 1/3 cup marinara pasta sauce
- 1/2 cup shredded cheese (such as mozzarella and Cheddar)
- Pepperoni slices
- 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
- 2 tbsp butter (optional)
Heat oven to 350°F. If desired, line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper.
Unroll 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated pizza crust onto paper-lined or directly on ungreased cookie sheet. Using fingers or rolling pin, press or roll dough to form 14×10-inch rectangle.
Spread 1/3 cup marinara sauce lengthwise down center of dough.
Top with 1/2 cup shredded cheese and desired amount of pepperoni slices.
With pizza cutter or knife, cut dough into strips on both sides of toppings.
Fold 1 strip up over toppings; fold 1 strip from opposite side over first strip. Repeat to form a braided appearance.
Brush the finished braid with 2 tbsp melted butter and top with 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning.
Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to cutting board. Cut into slices; serve warm.
