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.

Puppy-Friendly Pizza

Puppy-Friendly Pizza

2 thin crust pizzas overlapping on a stone surface

This simple recipe is safe for puppies and can be altered to accommodate several different toppings. The method explained below will make a meaty pizza. However, you just need to change the topping to make a veggie or dessert pizza.

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a pizza pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Whisk together the dry ingredients.
  3. Whisk the egg in a separate bowl and mix it into the chicken broth.
  4. Add the broth and egg mixture to the dry ingredients. Stir until the ingredients are fully combined, but try to avoid over-mixing.
  5. Roll the dough out on a floured surface, or spread it out on the pan to form a smooth, thin crust.
  6. Bake the crust for 20 to 30 minutes.
  7. Cover the crust with your selected toppings.
  8. Place the pizza back in the oven for another 10 to 15 minutes to melt the cheese.


Topping:

  1. Spread cooked, mashed sweet potatoes on top of the crust as a sauce.
  2. If your dog can digest dairy, sprinkle a small amount of low-fat shredded mozzarella on the crust.
  3. Add selected meats. Lean ground beef or ground turkey (pepperoni and crumbled) are suitable options.
  4. Add some shredded carrots for a veggie balance with added nutrients.
  5. Bake the pizza until the cheese melts and the ingredients are hot.

This organic recipe is extremely healthy for canines and can be fed to dogs of all ages. In fact, even humans can have a bite of this gluten-free pizza. The given quantities of ingredients will make 12 slices of pizza.

Ingredients

  • 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)

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350oF and cook the chicken breast through.
  2. Once cooked, shred the chicken breast and set it aside in a bowl.
  3. Heat your oven to 400 degrees.
  4. In a food processor, combine oats, egg, canola oil, and chopped-up sweet potato. You can cook the sweet potato if you'd like.
  5. On parchment paper, take your sweet potato dough and roll it out in the shape of a pizza (about ½ -¼-inch thick).
  6. Place it in the oven and cook for 15-20 minutes.
  7. 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.

  9. Put it in the microwave for 5 minutes to cook. Set aside.
  10. Do the same with the spinach in the food processor.
  11. 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.

This is an ideal recipe for those owners who love pizza crust and can’t share it with their pups. It will take you less than 30 minutes to make these delicious treats and they can be stored for future use.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Flour (I used whole wheat but any kind will do)
  • 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)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425oF.
  2. In your mixer, place the flour, herbs, baking powder, and salt and stir by hand just to incorporate.
  3. Add the tomato paste, yogurt, and olive oil and start kneading at medium speed with the dough hook attachment.
  4. Add water by the tablespoon until the dough just comes together.
  5. Knead for about 6 minutes.
  6. Turn out dough onto a floured board and divide in half.
  7. Roll out dough (life hack: sandwich between sheets of parchment paper to avoid over-flouring)
  8. Cut out with bone-shaped cookie cutters and place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.
  9. 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.
