I grew up with my mom making these pizza buns. She would make these and keep them in the freezer and then pop them into our lunches and they’d be thawed by lunchtime.

I used this sweet dough that is my staple for cinnamon buns, donuts, pizza crusts, etc…


Roll out the dough flat onto a greased counter top so it is about 2-3 inches thick and then cut it into 3 inch circles.

Take each circle out and flatten in in the middle with your hands.

Add some pizza sauce in the middle of the circle.

Add some cut up ham, pineapple and grated cheese in the middle.

Then pull the edges out and fold it together and pinch together the edges.

Keep pinching the edges together so that they stick together well.

Just make sure all the sauce and toppings are tucked up inside. Then roll it over and put the seems down.

Pop them into the preheated 350 degree oven on a greased baking sheet and bake them for 15 – 20 minutes or until they are golden  brown all over.  Then they end up like this.

You can fill them with ham and pineapple or pepperoni or my mom always did cooked ground hamburger mixed with pizza sauce and some marble cheese. You can keep them into the freezer and pop them out into your kids lunches and they’ll be thawed by lunch tine.
