If the theory that everything tastes better on a stick is true then this recipe solidifies the fact! Pizza Lollipops are super easy to make with basic pizza ingredients, a popsicle stick and maybe a pepperoni on top.
It’s Friday night and in our house that means Pizza Night!
After a long week of getting up early for school, racing around to after school activities, homework and hectic schedules, it’s nice to pick out a movie together (last week we watched Ratatouille and the week before it was Wall-e), spread out a picnic blanket on the living room floor, grab some cut up veggies and make one of our favorite pizza recipes using pre-made or dough we’ve made on our own plus Veggie Heavy Pizza Sauce. Sometimes that means Quilt pizza, Pizza Balls or Green Machine Pizza or recently these whimsical Pizza Party Lollipops.
We’ve always got a load of wooden popsicle sticks laying around as the kids are super into crafting with them or me making Kulfi Ice Pops, Pancake Sausage Muffins on a Stick or Strawberry Yogurt Ice Pops, so I thought it would be fun to take pizza dough, have the kids help me make ropes out of it, wind one around a wooden stick, flatten it on a parchment lined baking sheet and then top with tons of cheese.
You can top them with any type of good melting cheese or even a combination you enjoy like mozzarella, cheddar, gouda or fontina like I did here. They’re not only cute to eat, but since you get to dip them in tomato sauce it’s a ton of fun too.
When I make too many I just pop them in the freezer to take out a few as a snack when the kids get home from school. And voila, the perfect afternoon snack!
Don’t feel intimidated to make these. They’re absolutely worth it especially when you see the big smiles on your families face after eating them! Whip a batch of these Pizza Lollipops up for your next #FridayNightPizzaNight to create your own fun!
Friday Night Pizza Party Lollipops
- 1 pound pizza dough
- 1/2 pound fontina cheese, grated
- 16 wooden popsicle sticks
- 16 pepperoni slices, or other desired toppings
- pizza sauce
- Preheat the oven to 450F.
- Divide the pizza dough into 16 pieces and roll each into a ball.
- Insert a wooden popsicle stick into the center of each pizza dough ball, flatten into a disk, and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
- Sprinkle grated cheese onto each pizza lollipop, top with a pepperoni slice or other desired toppings, and extra cheese.
- Place the pizza lollipops in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the pizza dough is golden brown.
What a fun idea!!
These look fantastic! My 3 year old loves anything pizza related! Will have to try this weekend.
My 4 year old loves sausage, so that’s usually standard, but I love to add roasted red peppers, mushrooms, pepperoni or jalapeno for a little kick to my half!
We love olives and peppers on our pizza!
I love greek toppings on pizza (spinach, olives and feta).
We love pizza with kale, bacon, potato, and cheddar cheese!
I am an olive and mushroom kind of girl :o)

Our whole family LOVES black olives!
I love onion and avocado on my pizza!
We made these last night and they were a big hit with the whole family. However, while the dough was cooked perfectly, the cheese was dark brown and all crispy after just 25 minutes. Did you wait until it had cooked for a while to add the top layer of cheese? We’ll definitely make these again, but want to make them even better next time! Thanks for the great idea. Pizza lollipops and Rio 2 made our night!
So cute! Can’t wait to try out on my picky two year old!!!

Maybe it’s a California thing, but my favorite combo is thinly sliced Bosc pear, crumbled Gorgonzola and rough-chopped pecans. Beyond delicious (and obviously quite decadent!:) My 13 year-old is adventurous as well – her favorite is thinly-sliced Yukon Gold potatoes, shredded Fontina and a sprinkle of White Truffle Oil. Try it!
We’re a no topping family. Just cheese and lots of it!
LOVE this idea. In our house pizza is always a hit and things on sticks are always a hit:) Thanks!
