Choccy eggs are an obligatory treat for any child at Easter but you can also introduce a few savoury, but equally fun Easter-themed foodie choices such as this cheesy bunny pizza.


For the pizza dough

  • 250g strong bread flour
  • 1 tsp dried yeast
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 150ml water
  • 1 garlic crushed

For the tomato sauce & toppings

  • 150g chopped tomatoes
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 tbsp sundried tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp thyme
  • 100g grated mozzarella
  • 50g grated cheddar
  • basil leaves, chopped

For the decoration

  • 250g ball of mozzarella
  • black olives
  • cherry tomatoes sliced
  • basil leaves


  • STEP 1

    Make the dough. Put the flour, yeast, salt, olive oil, water and garlic into a bowl. Mix together using a wooden spoon until the mixture comes together. Place on a work surface and knead into a soft shiny dough. Place in an oiled bowl, cover with clingfilm and leave to rise for 1 ½ hours. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C fan/400°F/Gas Mark 6.

  • STEP 2

    Divide the dough into 4 balls.

  • STEP 3

    Take one ball. Remove a third of the dough. Roll out to make 2 bunny ears then roll out the remaining dough to make the bunny’s face. Place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Repeat with rest of the dough to create 3 more bunnies.

  • STEP 4

    Mix the tomato, garlic, tomato paste and thyme together in a bowl. Spread over the bases. Sprinkle the cheese over the top. Bake the pizzas for 15 minutes.

  • STEP 5

    Decorate the pizzas with the olives, tomatoes, mozzarella, chives and basil to make the bunny faces.
