Wishing you all friends and readers a very Happy and Prosperous New Year! Life is a bit busy these days, so taking a short break, see you guys with more exciting recipes next year, meanwhile enjoy this recipe I posted as guest post at Sandhya's kitchen...This recipe idea flashed,when I saw a pamphlet I got from 7 eleven introducing Pizza bites. I loved the idea and thought it would be easy to make at home. As I have been making pizza from the scratch for quite a while now and have tried several buns, I was pretty confident in try these and enjoyed making these. This could be an easy party snack idea, kids would be super excited to have it and sure we can also enjoy this. The stuffing is flexible so you can experiment it with your favourite topping,let it be simple like what I have used or add on your favourites like black olives,mushrooms…it’s your choice! 

Pizza buns recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Continental  |  Recipe Category: Snack
Prep Time:1 Hr     |  Cook time: 18 mins     Makes: 8


All purpose flour - 1 & 1/2 cup

Milk - 1/2 cup

olive oil - 1/8 cup

Salt - 1 tsp

Sugar - 1 & 1/2 tsp

Active dry yeast - 1 tblsp

For the filling

Capsicum,chopped - 1

Onion - 1

Tomato(optional) - 1

Grated mozzarella cheese - 1/2 cup

Pizza sauce or any tomato based sauce - 2 tsp

Italian herb of ur choice - 1 tsp

Red chilli flakes - 1 tsp

Salt - 2 pinches

oil - 2 tsp


  1. Heat milk until lukewarm,dissolve sugar and yeast. Let it rest for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes the mixture would have been raised to frothy, proving that the yeast is active. If not,your yeast is not active and use active yeast
  3. Meanwhile, take flour in a large bow and make a dent in the middle. Add salt, oil and the yeast mixture in the dent and make a smooth pliable dough. If sticky sprinkle little more flour,if too dry sprinkle some water. The dough should be smooth and pliable.
  5. Let it rest for 1 hour, wrap the bowl with cling wrap. After an hour the dough should have been raised. Punch it down and knead to make it smooth.

  • While sealing the buns, you can use water if you find it difficult to do so.
  • Adjust the baking time accordingly. Keep an eye on the buns after 15 minutes.
  • You can sprinkle white sesame seeds or even chilli flakes on the top before baking the buns.

Serve hot with tomato ketchup or chilly sauce! Enjoy it with your favourite drink!

    ur site in simply superb.i wanted to try ur buns recipe i have a doubt regarding the yeast.can i use easy bake yeast instead of active dry yeast.if so is it the same quantity and do i need to mix it in water and allow the yeast to become active.please help me.
    thank you in advance.

  38. Planning to make the pizza and pizza bun tomorrow. Lovely pics. The pizza buns would make a good school snack option too. Can i make these buns in bulk? How long will they stay if refrigerated.

  39. i made it with chicken, and fried them instead of baking, and they turn out very good. so who don't have oven they can fry them. :) happy cooking to all.......
