Christmas Tree Pesto Pizzas

Pizza night during Christmas week got a fun twist with these Christmas Tree Pesto Pizzas . My kids love helping make these festive mini pizzas and I love that they are eating flavorful pesto instead of boring traditional red pizza sauce! 

My little mini me is the best helper in the kitchen! And since pizza is one of her favorite foods she always volunteers to help me make pizza at home, especially if she can get the first piece for dinner before anyone else!


Ingredients:

Makes 6 pizzas
  • 1 large pizza crust or 6 small {I use Mama Mary's}
  • 1 cup pesto sauce
  • 3 slices cheddar or mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup mini pepperoni slices
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, optional

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cut each mini pizza crusts into a tree shape.
  3. Place on a baking sheet.
  4. Brush all over with pesto sauce.
  5. Top with a handful of mini pepperoni slices on each pizza as ornaments.
  6. Cut star shapes using a mini star cookie cutter out of the cheese slices. Set aside.
  7. Bake for 7 minutes and remove from oven.
  8. Add a cheese star to the top of each pizza. You can also add a sprinkling of shredded cheese on the pizzas too.
  9. Bake for 1 minute until cheese is slightly melted.
  10. Remove from oven and serve. 




I use Mama Mary's mini pizza crusts {3 pack} for this recipe.
Cut each mini pizza crusts into a tree shape.
Place on a baking sheet.
Cut star shapes using a mini star cookie cutter out of the cheese slices. Set aside.
For topping these pizzas I used prepared pesto, mini pepperoni slices, and cheese cut in mini star shapes. 
Brush all over with pesto sauce.
This is an easy recipe to let the kids help make!
Top with a handful of mini pepperoni slices on each pizza as ornaments.
You can use the leftover cut crusts to make more mini shaped pizzas.
 Let's call these ornaments!
Bake at 350 degrees for 7 minutes.
Then add a cheese star to the top of each pizza. 
You can also add a sprinkling of shredded cheese on the pizzas too.
Bake for 1 minute until cheese is slightly melted.
Remove from oven and serve.
