Flower shaped mini pizzas recipe
- Dish type
- Main course
I discovered this great idea when I was making some cheesy scones and realised the dough was perfect for a yeast free, MSG free pizza. And they're healthy too! You can use any shape you like or can even roll this out to make a large family sized pizza, and use any topping you like. Fantastic for a child's birthday party or as an afternoon snack when they come home from school.

IngredientsMakes: 12 mini pizzas
- 225g (8oz) white organic self-raising flour
- 28g (1oz) organic wholemeal flour
- 1 pinch salt
- 57g (2oz) butter
- 57g (2oz) grated cheese
- 1 tablespoon mixed herbs (optional)
- 150ml milk
- tomato puree
MethodPrep:15min ›Cook:20min ›Ready in:35min
- Preheat oven to 220 C / Gas 7. Grease a baking tray with light oil or light butter.
- Mix together flour and salt and rub in the butter.
- Stir in 1oz of the grated cheese and herbs. Then stir in milk. Stir together and you should get a very soft dough (milk is optional but makes a very tasty pizza base).
- Flour your work surface and knead lightly. Roll out with a rolling pin until dough is about 2cm thick, then cut out with your shape (cookie cutters).
- Spread tomato puree on the surface of the cut out dough, then sprinkle with the rest of the cheese and herbs (and any topping of your choice).
- Bake until the dough is lightly browned and cheese has melted, 15 to 20 minutes. It should be nice and moist in the middle.
If you want to, for an alternative or to make both, roll out dough until it is about 4cm thick and cut out the dough with cookie cutters. Sprinkle cheese and herbs or chives on top and bake in the oven for 15 minutes to make cheese topped chunky moist scones.

Mini Heart Shaped Pizzas
Pizza is one of my favorite crazy-easy comfort foods to make at home. It takes minimal time and effort, not to mention few dishes, and is often so much tastier than takeout. I gave our regular easy dinner a quick update to make these fun mini heart shaped pizzas.
All you need are two heart shaped cookie cutters to make pizza night oh so much cuter. These mini pizzas are great for a date night in or just to brighten someone’s day. Because who would just love a heart shaped pizza? It’s a kid friendly recipe too so your kiddos can join in on the cooking.
Watch the video below to see just how easy they are to make!
How I learned to make Fruit Pizza
Now let’s go back to me taking Home Ec. I should’ve known then that I had a love for cooking because I absolutely LOVED that class. Not because it was an easy A and I learned all the tools to be domestic, but I loved the cooking aspect of the course. More importantly, I loved my teacher, Mrs. Murphy. I am not sure if she is still out there and I am sure she isn’t reading my blog, but in case you are Mrs. Murphy, thank you for planting the seed that has grown into my blog, Brown Sugar.
Thank you, Mrs. Murphy.
I learned how to make scrambled eggs, pancakes, muffins, bread, and a few other basic dishes that I can’t remember. But what sticks out the most with anyone who has taken Home Economics at my old high school was learning to make fruit pizza on a sugar cookie! The day we made the fruit pizza, I remember the students in my class shared it with their friends and everyone would ask the rest of us who were in the class to share as well. My entire high school was doped up on fruit pizza! It is that good!
Have you ever noticed, the simplest things in life provide the most bliss and comfort? Think about it, no one ever says I am at peace when I make Homemade Croissants or Homemade Cronuts (click here for a simpler Cronut recipe). Those dishes take up a lot of time, days even. This Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizza recipe, that is made of refrigerated sugar cookie dough, cream cheese, and fruit can give us pure bliss and send us to a place of euphoria. I encourage you to let this sugar cookie pizza with fruit become the summer dessert recipe that you refer to you year after year! Before you know it, your friend and family will be requesting this dish from you all the time!
12 oz / 340 g Shortcrust pastry
See here if you would like a recipe to make your own. You will need to DOUBLE the ingredients for the pastry recipe to get 12 mini pies.
1 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken or turkey meat
1/2 can condense cream of chicken soup
1 cup mixed vegetables ( I used carrots, corn kernels and peas)
1 beaten egg (for the egg wash at the end)
About the filling!
- Traditionally sfeeha pies are made with lamb meat, but if you are worried about lamb meat being too strong for you, beef can be used instead – though my personal preference is lamb!! Fatty meat is advisable and not the lean stuff.
- A quick word about the filling: tomatoes and onions can be hand chopped, but I would prefer to throw them both (onions and tomatoes) in a food processor and blitz to a smooth blend – do not add the minced meat to the food processor!
- Some people add pomegranate molasses and tahini to the filling, I simply don’t! I need nothing to overpower the flavor of the lamb meat, I would only spice it up with a very small pinch of seven spice, cinnamon powder and chili powder.
- Strain the filling before shaping the sfeeha, to get rid of the excess liquid and to avoid unravelling the sfeeha while baking.

Ingredients and substitutions
There aren’t many ingredients in this recipe. In that way, it’s similar to our Weight Watchers-friendly gluten free pizza recipe. There aren’t many additional allergens in the recipe, as it’s already naturally egg-free and nut-free. It is worthwhile to discuss a few of the ingredients, in case you have questions:
The recipe for the crust is naturally dairy free—unless you’re using using the gluten free bread flour. That calls for the addition of milk protein.
If you are dairy-free, I recommend using the all purpose gluten free flour, not the bread flour blend. For toppings, use your favorite dairy-free shredded cheese. I like Daiya brand and Violife brand.
If you’d like to avoid using honey, you can substitute an equal amount of brown rice syrup. You can even use light corn syrup.
I don’t recommend using maple syrup. That has a different consistency and an incompatible flavor.
In place of olive oil, you can use almost any neutral oil, like vegetable oil, canola oil, or grapeseed oil. Olive oil does lend a nice flavor, so it’s preferred.
