I love make pizza flavored dog treats and dog safe pizza from scratch for my dogs, and have compiled the BEST pizza recipes for dogs that I’ve found. Enjoy!
Pizza Dog Treat Recipes
Making dog treats from scratch is not a lot different than making human food from scratch, except with dog friendly ingredients.
These five recipes will give you wonderful variations that let you easily make pizza dog treats for your pups, and if you’re looking for something that’s a little bit quicker to put together check out these fruit dog treats recipes or my easy vanilla dog treats recipe.
As dog owners, we sometimes like to share a slice with our pup. But just how bad is pizza for dogs? Click here to learn more.
Pop’s Pizza Dog Treats
- 2 cups of Whole Wheat Flour
- 2 cups of Unbleached White Flour
- 1/2 cup of Corn Meal
- 1 egg
- 1 3/4 cups of water – 2 cups of water…if the dough is a little dry…just add a little bit more water : )
- 3 tablespoons of olive oil or vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons of parsley
- 1 teaspoon of basil
- 1 cup of grated cheese (Parm, Pecorino or if you like to mix it up…use a cheddar or a blend of cheese…you know…like a four cheese pizza!)
- 1 cup of chopped sun-dried tomatoes. (If you are using oil-packed…use the oil from the tomatoes instead of olive oil or vegetable oil… you’ll get a lot of extra flavor)
- Time to fire up the oven to 375 degrees
- Put all of your ingredients in a large bowl…mix well then flour a working space and knead the dough till it well formed (it will be a stiff dough).
- Roll out the dough till it is approximately 1/2″ thick and then cut out any size or shape you would like (I have to admit I usually make them in to small squares or little circles since my doggies are smaller…but they looked much prettier in the dog bone shape : ) So whatever size or shape is wonderful!
- Once they are all cut out and on a greased baking sheet or placed on parchment they get popped into the oven for approximately 50 minutes.
- After 40 minutes…I take them out…brush them with oil and sprinkle some extra cheese on top…it’s a little something extra but it does not have to be done
- Now cool the bones and serve them up to your furry friend!
Pizza Flavored Dog Treats
- 1 cup of spelt flour
- 1/3 cup of white flour
- 50 ml water
- 1 small handful of basil
- 1 small handful of sundried tomatoes
- 1 small mozzarella ball
- Preheat the oven to 375°F or 180°C.
- Finely chop basil, mozzarella and sundried tomatoes and set aside.
- Place the flours in a bowl. Add the chopped basil, mozzarella and sundried tomatoes.
- Add water and mix it all together. The dough should be fairly dry but still hold together. If the dough is too dry, add additional water one tablespoon at a time. If the dough is too wet, add additional flour one tablespoon at a time.
- Roll the dough to 3mm thick by using a rolling pin.
- Use the rim of a glass approximately 3 inches in diameter to cut out round treats. Score them with a knife into ‘pizza slices’
- Bake until the surface of the ‘pizzas’ are golden brown, around 20 minutes.
- Turn the oven off and allow the treats to cool inside the oven completely before removing them to a cooling rack.
- Store them in an airtight container
- Pop one in your pocket and break off a slice on your next walk!

This and other homemade fresh free dog treat recipes should be kept in the refrigerator. In a sealed container they will stay fresh for a week. You can store them in the freezer for up to 6 months.
How Much this Recipe Makes:
There are too many variables to determine how many pizzas you will yield. You could make one large pizza and serve slices. Or, you could bake personal pizzas. The dough amount should make at least 6 thicker crust personal size pizzas.
