Sue’s Pizza Squares

June 14, 2011

My friend Sue made these little gems at Easter and they were ridiculously good. Sue calls them “Vanessa’s Pizza Squares”, but since I don’t know who Vanessa is, they’ve been renamed to “Sue’s”. Feel free to do the same and call them Andrea’s if you feel so inclined. heh heh.

She did them up on a large Pampered Chef bar pan (highly recommend you get one if you don’t use one already) and then cut them into little squares. I made them yesterday to serve at a Playoff party at our friends’ Terri & Paul’s house and they were inhaled pretty darn quickly. That’s all the validation I need that it’s a good recipe.

Sue’s Pizza Squares

2 packages of Pillsbury crescent rolls OR 1 package of Pillsbury Pizza dough

2 cups mozzarella, shredded (I just get the stuff in the bag)

1/4 cup parmesan

2 tbsp fresh basil, snipped into small pieces or stripes

2/3 cup mayonnaise

1-2 garlic cloves, minced

3-4 roma tomatoes, sliced into round discs evenly shaped (these mark each square for cutting)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out dough and flatten to cover large stone bar pan, or regular 9×13 pan. Sprinkled mozza on the dough; then combine parmesan, garlic, and mayo together in a bowl, and spread over the dough/mozza.

Using the basil and the tomato discs, arrange both on the top layer so you have roughly 18 squares. I would sprinkle the basil down first then place each tomato slice down to mark your squares. Bake 20-30 mins (keep your eyes on the crust to ensure it doesn’t burn). And as Sue says, sample quickly because they go FAST!
