Most dogs love the aroma of pizza and would be attracted to a dining table with a pizza on it. Unfortunately, it’s not safe to feed them your favorite pizza because ingredients, like onion and garlic, are harmful to dogs. However, you can make a dog-friendly pizza for your pooch to invite him/her for a scrumptious meal. Keep reading to know about some of the best recipes to make pizza for dogs.
- 1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
- 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal
- ½ cup rice or coconut flour
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- ½ cup tapioca flour
- 1 cup unsalted chicken broth
- 1 egg
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a pizza pan with non-stick cooking spray.
- Whisk together the dry ingredients.
- Whisk the egg in a separate bowl and mix it into the chicken broth.
- Add the broth and egg mixture to the dry ingredients. Stir until the ingredients are fully combined, but try to avoid over-mixing.
- Roll the dough out on a floured surface, or spread it out on the pan to form a smooth, thin crust.
- Bake the crust for 20 to 30 minutes.
- Cover the crust with your selected toppings.
- Place the pizza back in the oven for another 10 to 15 minutes to melt the cheese.
- Spread cooked, mashed sweet potatoes on top of the crust as a sauce.
- If your dog can digest dairy, sprinkle a small amount of low-fat shredded mozzarella on the crust.
- Add selected meats. Lean ground beef or ground turkey (pepperoni and crumbled) are suitable options.
- Add some shredded carrots for a veggie balance with added nutrients.
- Bake the pizza until the cheese melts and the ingredients are hot.

Gluten-Free Pizza for Dogs
- 1 Chicken Breast (Organic)
- 1 Cup Rolled Oats (Gluten-free)
- 1.5 Cup Cauliflower (Organic)
- 1 Medium Sweet Potato (Organic)
- 1 Medium Red Pepper (Organic)
- ¼ Cup Spinach (Organic)
- 1 Egg (Organic)
- 1 Tsp Canola Oil (Organic)
- Heat oven to 350oF and cook the chicken breast through.
- Once cooked, shred the chicken breast and set it aside in a bowl.
- Heat your oven to 400 degrees.
- In a food processor, combine oats, egg, canola oil, and chopped-up sweet potato. You can cook the sweet potato if you'd like.
- On parchment paper, take your sweet potato dough and roll it out in the shape of a pizza (about ½ -¼-inch thick).
- Place it in the oven and cook for 15-20 minutes.
- While the dough is cooking, chop and put the red pepper in the food processor until smooth (pizza sauce). Drain some of the excess water and set it aside in a bowl.
- Put the cauliflower in the food processor to make your 'cheese'. You will pulse this just to make it look like grated cheese.
- Put it in the microwave for 5 minutes to cook. Set aside.
- Do the same with the spinach in the food processor.
- Once the timer goes off for the sweet potato dough, take it out of the oven and put your pizza together with the red pepper sauce first, cauliflower cheese, spinach topping, and chicken.
- Bake for another 15-20 minutes until the edges of the pizza are browned and it is cooked through.
- Cool the pizza before serving!

Pizza Bone Treats for Dogs

- 1 Tbsp Baking powder
- 3 Tbsp Plain Tomato Paste or puree
- 1 cup Low-fat plain Greek yogurt
- 1 Tbsp Oregano
- ¼ cup Parmesan cheese
- 1 Tbsp Basil
- 1 Tbsp Fresh parsley
- ½ tsp Salt
- 1 Tbsp Olive oil
- Water as needed to finish dough (we used 3 tbsp)
- Preheat oven to 425oF.
- In your mixer, place the flour, herbs, baking powder, and salt and stir by hand just to incorporate.
- Add the tomato paste, yogurt, and olive oil and start kneading at medium speed with the dough hook attachment.
- Add water by the tablespoon until the dough just comes together.
- Knead for about 6 minutes.
- Turn out dough onto a floured board and divide in half.
- Roll out dough (life hack: sandwich between sheets of parchment paper to avoid over-flouring)
- Cut out with bone-shaped cookie cutters and place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.
- Bake for 14 minutes for a chewy, pizza crust-like treat. Turn off the oven and leave cookies inside to crisp them up more for a classic cookie crunch with a longer shelf life.
