Pizza Hamantashen

pizza hamantashen

Thursday night is pizza night at our house. Last night as I was rolling out our crusts, I had a brainstorm!

If you can make a half moon-shape stuffed pizza and call it calzone, why not a triangle shape and call it: Pizza Hamantashen.

So that’s just what we did! Followed up by hamantashen with sprinkles for dessert, of course.

(Forgive the photos – best I could do with an iPhone… and hungry children grabbing at the hamantashen.)

First, roll out a circle of pizza dough. Mine was about 7 inches in diameter.

Then spoon on some pizza sauce (in a pinch, regular ole marinara sauce is a perfectly acceptable substitute).

Layer on your toppings – my kiddo picked mushrooms, peppers and broccoli.

Top with shredded mozzarella.

Pinch in the corners – I overlapped them to try to keep everything secure.

Brush with egg and bake on a greased cookie sheet in a 375 degree oven for about 20 minutes.

If you are looking for a recipe for pizza dough, here is the one we’ve used for the last two years (thanks, Katie!). It turns out right every single time – and that’s saying something in my kitchen.

Anyone else getting creative with their hamantashen?


  1. So cute! Wish I would’ve seen this last night before we made pizza!

  2. I love this! Filing it away for next year

  3. Haven’t done it yet, but was thinking about samosas. Or at least something not sweet. I love this idea!

  4. I think this might be tonight’s dinner. Our Purim Carnival got snowed out, so this might appease some sad little girls. At least we made it too the children’s service last night.
