With the kids at home more this holiday season, I’ve tried making festive foods more often. Not just christmas cookie recipes, but easy savory recipes that we can fix quickly for lunches. We’re schooling from home so on long days it is fun to pull out the ingredients for these cut out pizzas.

What bread is good to use for pizza cutouts?
I used a hearty artisan sourdough bread. The slices were thick and held up to the toppings. If you use a soft white bread the pizzas may not be as sturdy.
How to Make Christmas Tree Pizza Appetizers
Cut bread slices into Christmas tree shapes using a large cookie cutter.
Spread each tree with the cream cheese spread.
Decorate with red and green bell pepper pieces and the pepperoni.
Place on a perforated baking sheet or screen. This will help the bread toast on both sides.
Broil on low heat (3rd position down from top) for 4 minutes or until toasted and bubbling. Watch closely! Food can burn quickly under the broiler. Check at 3 minutes, but ours took 4 minutes.
Use hearts or pumpkins for other holiday pizza cutouts.
Add your favorite toppings, just make them small. Mushrooms, olives, sausage, etc.
Use wheat bread or gluten free bread for a gluten free lunch.
Serve with a side of pizza sauce for dipping. Or you could use cheese sauce. 😋
