This simple and delicious Christmas Tree Pizza makes the perfect festive pizza. Serve it for Christmas lunch or serve as a Christmas appetizer.
I know my pizza looks like my little boy made it, instead of me. The only thing my four-year-old can take credit for is eating most of the pepperoni. I can’t blame him. Pepperoni is addicting!
Surprisingly, I had enough pepperoni to finish the tree shaped pizza for dinner. I enjoy making Christmas theme food during the holiday season.
Sometimes the food doesn’t always look like I planned but, at least, it tastes good! So don’t laugh at my Charlie Brown looking tree… LOL!
My plans were to cut the dough into a tree shape then have my little boy decorate the pizza. Instead, he ate pepperoni and watched me decorate the pizza.
You can have your children help you decorate the pizza unless they rather eat the pepperoni instead, like my son did!
Ingredients for the Christmas Tree Pizza
- Hormel Pepperoni 25% Less Fat
- Pillsbury Classic Pizza Crust
- Creamy Alfredo Sauce
- Mozzarella Cheese
- Red, Yellow and Green Bell Peppers
- Large Pizza Pan
how to make Christmas Tree Pizza
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Next, lay the pizza dough out flat on a pizza pan. Cut out the shape you want for your tree using a sharp knife or pizza cutter.
Next, spread Alfredo Sauce on dough covering the entire pizza. Use how much you want.
After you finish putting the sauce on the pizza, sprinkle with the cheese.
Next, place the pepperoni on the pizza.
Now, cut your Bell peppers into the desire shapes you want then place them on the pizza.
Last, bake the pizza in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until pizza is cooked.
Let the pizza cool before serving it. Makes 3-4 servings.
Kim’s suggestion: serve with a side salad. Do you like making Holiday theme food?
Sounds like you and your son had a nice time making dinner together. 🙂
We had a great time spending time together while I made the pizza and he ate the pepperoni …lol!!
Happy Holidays! Kim

What an adorable Christmas-time family dinner! My son adores pepper and onion so we'd probably add some onion in there somewhere!
Thank you Stacy! Great idea about adding onions . I wish I could have made my pizza bigger, next time I will make my own pizza dough and use a Christmas Tree template instead of trying to cut it free handed! And, it's great your son likes peppers and onions most kids don't!! Happy Holidays!

Thank you Palak!! It really tasted better than it looked. Next time I'll print out a Christmas template from the internet to use before I start cutting the dough! Happy Holidays!

I absolutely love this idea! I know my son would freak out so this will have to be on our menu next week 🙂
Thank you Danielle! I am thrilled you love the pizza idea! I know my little boy loved it. He watched me decorate it and supervised while he was eating the pepperoni but, he loved the idea of the Christmas pizza Tree! Hope your son love the pizza as much as mine!!!! Kim

This is super cute and something my kids would love!
Thank you Joyce! It was super easy to make. You could add anything you want to it. I wanted to cut a star from the yellow bell pepper but I couldn't find a small cookie cutter star. Also, if you lay your dough on a large flat cookie sheet it would probably give you more dough to use. Have a wonderful Holiday! Kim

I love this! Sitting here contemplating if this might be a way to sneak some green peppers into my daughter's diet….
Hi Susan! You could always sliced or diced the peppers thinner and, cook them in a pan with a little olive oil before you put them on the pizza or parboil them . That way the peppers will be softer to eat and doesn't have a strong bell pepper taste! Happy Holidays! Kim
Diana Moore says
What a fun idea! My daughter loves pizza and Christmas trees so she'll definitely love making this. Thanks!
Thank you Diana! I hope your daughter loves it as much as my little boy! You could cook the bell peppers in olive oi until it softens before you put them on the pizza if you wanted to make them softer for your daughter .
Have fun and Merry Christmas! Kim
