Bun Boat Pizza

Pizza buns


Bun pizza is a quick and easy recipe which is perfect even for kids lunch box/snack during weekend. This is fun mini pizzas on the burger buns made with your favourite toppings.

Serves: 4
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Baking time: 8-10 minutes


  • Whole wheat buns -4
  • Finely chopped onion-1
  • Pasta/pizza sauce-1/4cup
  • Low fat grated Mozzarella cheese
  • Dried Italian herbs-1/2tsp
  • Olive oil-to brush


  • Pre-heat the oven at 200deg, line the baking tray and set aside.
  • Slit buns in half horizontally.
  • Spread pizza/pasta sauce on bun slices.
  • Top it with onions.
  • Sprinkle some cheese, herbs and finally drizzle some olive oil.
  • Arrange on the lined baking tray and bake for 6-8minutes/until the cheese melts and buns are slightly crispy.
  • Remove from the oven and serve immediately.


  • Toppings can be personalised.
  • I used homemade buns for this recipe-I made bun dough for stuffed bun and used same to make plain buns-just follow the same procedure just that without stuffing(Link)

I am bringing this recipe to Angie’s FF#33
