Pizza Cones

Pizza in a cone? I’m all over it!

When I saw a recipe that would turn my pizza in to a cone – I was all over that! My kids love ice cream cones and pizza and the was a perfect blending of the two for them. They love being able to help make their pizza cones with whatever toppings they want to include.

You will need to purchase a Pizza Cone Set (or two). The set makes two cones at a time. To make more than just two at a time, you will need to buy more sets.

Ingredients

Pizza Cone Set
Pillsbury pizza dough
Pizza sauce
Cheese
Toppings of your choice

Directions

Roll out the Pillsbury pizza dough to 1/8 inch. (The dough doesn’t need to be rolled out too much. It’s almost there, as it is already thin crust.)
Roll it out so it’s large enough in surface area for the dough cutter to fit twice.
After cutting the Pillsbury pizza dough into the shape, remove the excess dough. (Tip: Use the extra dough to make bread sticks.)
Moisten the edges of the dough with water and fold the dough over in half, so the edges meet. Press down on the seam with your fingers and then run the crimper along the edge to thoroughly seal the seam.
Let the cones rest on the cutting board for 15 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400F.
After Pillsbury pizza dough has rested, carefully slip the dough onto the pizza cone form. Bake for 6-7 minutes or until the cone begins to brown.
Remove from oven; let cool for 2 minutes and remove from form. Place cone into one of the pizza cone stands. Fill pizza cone with some of the toppings of your choice.
Fill cone with pizza Sauce.
Fill with cheese.
