Quick & Succulent Pizza Snack
Quick Pizza Snack
The other day, Scott wanted pizza for lunch. I don’t typically cook lunch, but it sounded really good. Unfortunately, although I have some pizza dough frozen in the freezer, it’s, well, frozen. And I didn’t have any flour ground and didn’t have an hour for pizza dough to rise. So, I improvised. I had some table water cookies and thought that they would make a good crust. I worried that they would get soggy, but they didn’t at all. They were perfect. I made the sauce quickly, using ketchup and spices. Twenty minutes after Scott voiced the desire for pizza for lunch, we were sitting down to enjoy it.
12 table water cookies
½ cup tomato ketchup
dash garlic powder
dash onion powder
¼ tsp Italian seasoning
pizza toppings of your choice
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
small bowl and spoon
grate the cheese
I had to look up the name of the crackers, because I didn’t know them and they were one of four different kinds in an entertainment pack. But, I think saltines would work as well. Here is what the crackers looked like:
I didn’t go into this lunch intending to post the recipe. They were already on the pan when I thought it might be a good post to share. But I did snap a picture of the ingredients that I used when I made them.
Mix the ketchup and the spices. Taste it and add more as you need to. Spread on each cracker. Top with your desired pizza toppings (I used turkey pepperoni), the mozzerella cheese, and the parmesean cheese.
Place under broiler until the cheese melts and is bubbly. Try to have some patience.
Remove from oven and serve.

Those look really yummy! I never thought of making them with crackers although we’ve used bread, bagels, pitas, etc. I’ll have to try them sometime. :)
Great improvisation! Sometimes the boys will have pizza toast but I”ve never tried to do it on a cracker. I’ll definitely keep that in mind.
great improvising! i do have a no rise pizza crust on my blog that i use all the time, in case the need ever arises again you don’t have to wait for it to rise.
Great Hallee!! I have been making that snack since I was a kid! (I have used Ritz crackers out of desperation, LOL) I use bagels now — very yummy! My youngest likes cold pizza, so if I have no leftovers, I keep a frozen one on hand, and pop it in the toaster oven, then cool it down for him. Hey, when you gotta have pizza, you GOTTA HAVE PIZZA! LOL
That’s it. That is all I have to say. Yum.
Here is a little something for you on my blog!
For a long time I have wondered if saltines would make a good crust for pizza. Thin crust at Pizza Hut tastes like saltines to me.
Thanks for answering that question. :-)
