Creative pizza recipes from TikTok

No matter how you slice it, pizza is the ultimate comfort food for people all over the world. Everyone has their favorite local pizza shop, but making your own homemade pizza is a great opportunity to put your own spin on pizza. In fact, TikTok is full of delicious, creative takes on pizza that’ll change everything you thought you knew about the classic dish. From a pizza burger to pizza waffles, here are 5 TikToks to get you started. 

Pizza burger


“The Confusion” Burger! 🍔🍕 1/2 lb beef patty, marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, fresh basil, on brioche buns! #miamifood #pizzaburger

♬ Delicious – T-Spoon

The comfort food mashup of your dreams has come to life! This mouthwatering pizza burger stacks classic pizza ingredients like mozz, pepperoni and fresh basil on top of a juicy beef patty. It’s truly the best of both worlds! The recipe can easily be made with plant-based burgers as well, for any vegetarians looking to take part in this epic hybrid. 

Simple pizza baguette 

Bread lovers, unite! Cut slits into a fresh baguette and fill with sauce and slices of pepperoni. Then pile shredded cheese between the slits and bake until the cheese melts all over the bread. It’s simple, it’s delicious, and it gives you an excuse to buy (or bake) a giant baguette. Regular pizza crust? What even is that? 

Keto-friendly pull-apart pizza

This keto-friendly dish satisfies your pizza cravings without all the carbs. Lay out a low-carb flatbread horizontally and pile on your favorite pizza toppings. Then roll it all up, and cut it into several smaller rolls. Repeat with a few more flatbreads, and then place the pieces next to each other in a pan. Top with some shredded mozz and bake for 15 minutes. Pull apart your mini rolled up pizzas and enjoy! 

Pizza dumpling

Most of the comments quickly noted that this dish is more commonly known as a “calzone,” and they’re probably right. But does it matter? Call it whatever you want, but this doughy, cheesy, saucy masterpiece is a must-have for any pizza lover. Fill up your dough with whatever toppings you’d like, bake until crispy, and take a bite into what will surely become a go-to dish. 

Pizza waffle

There are simply no bounds to what waffle irons can accomplish. To make your pizza waffle, start by adding cheese and pepperoni to your waffle iron. Then add optional veggies, throw on some more cheese, and close the bad boy up. When your waffle pizza is ready, dip in some tomato sauce for a deep pizza flavor that’ll shock your taste buds.
