I can’t remember where I got this idea, but Matt is so glad I found it.  He LOVES pizza braid, and I do too – it’s so easy to make and very customizable for a couple or for a family.  With its Pizza Hut style breadstick topping, it is sure to be a hit in your house too!!

You’ll need:

  • refrigerated thin crust pizza dough
  • pizza sauce
  • shredded mozzarella cheese
  • pizza toppings of your choice
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 2-3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

This is only going to take a few minutes to make, so go ahead and preheat your oven to 425.

Spread out the pizza crust on a cookie sheet.  Spread sauce, cheese, and topping as desired on the center third, longwise, of the crust.  See below how you can add different toppings to sections of the braid according to individual preference.


Using kitchen scissors, cut an equal number of strips into each side of the dough.

Start at one end and criss cross the dough strips.

Combine the melted butter, Parmesan, and Italian seasoning and spread over the top of the dough.

Bake for 15 minutes, then cut into strips to serve!
