I have been trying to get into the festive spirit by adding a bit of Christmas to the everyday. The whole family loves making pizza so we decided to mix it up by turning them into little Christmas wreaths. Cute huh? Nothing like multitasking your Christmas craft with the nightly meal. You can make one large Christmas pizza wreath or mini ones – which my kids prefer.

Tip: If you don’t have time to make the pizza dough, you can also make these with a round piece of pitta bread or cut a mountain bread wrap (choose additive and preservative free brands).

Nutrition Note: Making your own pizza bases is a great way to involve the kids in the kitchen.  Extend on this and let them choose their own pizza toppings from a range of healthy options – you may be pleasantly surprised with their choices.

You can top the pizza wreath with any of your favourite toppings. The ones pictured are:

  1. Caramelised Onion, Potato and Three Cheese Pizza 
  2. Tomato paste (or simple tomato sauce), cheese, cherry tomatoes, basil leaves
  3. Tomato paste, red, yellow, orange and green capsicum, caramelised onions and cheese.

Or you can try some sweet pizza’s. To do this:

  1. Brush the pizza base lightly with melted butter, place in oven for around 10 mins or until lightly golden, spread on Nutella or our hazelnut spread, added strawberries and coconut flakes.
  2. Or, arrange thinly sliced apple on pizza base, brush with a mixture of melted butter, maple syrup and cinnamon, place in oven for about 10-12 mins, removed from oven, brushed a little more maple mix then dolloped with ricotta and cream cheese icing mixture.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp dry yeast
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 2 ½ cups 00 or bakers flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Choose your own toppings to finish your pizza wreath

Method

Step 1

Place the yeast, sugar and water in a bowl and mix to combine. Set aside in a warm place or until bubbles appear on the surface (if bubbles don't appear the yeast has not been activated and you might need to start again). Place the flour, salt and olive oil in a bowl. Add the yeast mixture, and mix together to form a dough. Use your hands, and continue flouring them as needed. Kneed dough on a lightly floured surface for a few minutes or until smooth. Divide the dough into two equal balls. Place on a floured tray and cover with a clean tea towel. Set aside once again in a warm spot for around 30 minutes or until the balls have risen to around double their size. Divide the dough mixture into 8 small balls to make mini pizza or 2 equal balls to make 2 x 30cm pizza. -

Step 2

Preheat oven to 200°C. Roll each ball of dough on a lightly floured surface to create a thin base and place on non-stick baking paper on baking tray or pizza tray. Using a large round cookie cutter, cut out a circle from the center of each base. This will create a wreath shape -

Step 3

You can top the pizza wreath with any of your favourite toppings. The ones pictured are outlined above. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until the cheese has melted, toppings are cooked and the base is crisp. Yum! -
