Easy Pizza Hamantaschen Recipe

Just three ingredients to cheesy hamantaschen goodness!

Sweet hamantaschen are traditional and delicious for Purim. But if you are looking for something fun and simple to make for a Purim party appetizer, or an activity to make together with your children or grandchildren, these pizza hamantaschen are easy to make and a tasty nosh. Did I mention the recipe requires only three ingredients?

The trick to making these pizza-taschen is pinching those corners together super tight. When they come out of the oven, you may need to pinch again as they cool. I like using a combination of mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses, but use whatever you have or prefer. A touch of ricotta, fontina or pecorino would also be delicious.

Don’t forget to watch our short video on how to make these fun treats.


  • 1 lb store-bought pizza dough
  • store-bought tomato or marinara sauce (around 1 cup)
  • shredded mozzarella and Parmesan cheese (around 1 1/2 cups)


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface.
  3. Using a cookie or biscuit cutter, cut dough into rounds. Add small amount of tomato sauce and cheese in the middle of each round (around 1 tsp each of sauce and cheese)
  4. Pinch up corners very tightly into a triangle. Place on parchment paper.
  5. Bake for 7-9 minutes on top of parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  6. Serve with additional tomato sauce for dipping if desired.

Keep on Noshing
