For making pizza knots, you don't need yeast-activated dough. Instead, you just need to add yoghurt into the flour along with vegetable oil and some salt for seasoning. Just knead the dough soft and divide it to make knots, then place it on a baking tray and cover it with pizza toppings like cheese, corn, olives and herbs. Once the cheese melts and the knots become golden, it's ready to eat.

2) Coin Pizza

Coin pizza requires readymade milk bread that you can easily find in your pantry. Just cut the bread with the help of glass in a round shape and top it with all the toppings you like such as paneer pieces, cheese, olives, veggies etc. Make 5-6 such coin pizzas and throw them in the oven to cook for a few minutes.

3) Garlic Bread Pizza

You can make garlic bread pizza just like the coin pizza, by using readymade bread. It's even better if you use sourdough bread or slices of baguette. Just like the above pizza recipe, all you need to do is add your toppings and bake in the oven or air fryer to make this snack in a few minutes.

4) Burger Pizza

This snack will fulfil your craving for pizza as well as a burger. For this, burger buns are used instead of any bread and the pizza toppings go between the buns. Slice the bun into top and bottom pieces, add toppings on them separately and bake for a few minutes. After cooking, put the top and bottom slices together and enjoy.

5) Pizza Pockets

Pizza pockets transform the pizza pie into a more convenient and fun snack that you can eat on the bed without worrying about staining your hands. Just fill your pizza toppings in the puff pastry or samosa wrappers, bake it till crispy golden and savour each bite to delight your taste buds.

6) Naan Pizza

This recipe is the most innovative and convenient way to transform naan into pizza. If you don't have readymade or leftover naan at home, you can switch it with wheat roti which will give a thinner crust that gets crispy while baking but tastes equally good.

7) Pizza Waffles
