Make Pizza In A Portable, Kid-Friendly Jar

Admittedly, it's not as though pizza is difficult to come by if you want a slice, but this pizza-in-a-jar trick from the blog 1 Fine Cookie takes the idea of "portable food in jars" to the next level. Not only do you prep the ingredients in the jar, you bake it in the jar, and then just pop the top and enjoy. It's perfect for parties, kids or if you just enjoy a novelty way of eating pizza.Arguments over whether this is actually pizza and whether or not pizza does/doesn't belong in a jar aside, we're big fans of portable food and can see a few uses for this idea, especially since you can prep the ingredients in the jar, add whatever toppings you like (1 Fine Cookie suggests basil, tomato sauce, pepperoni and cheese), seal it up, and put it in the fridge or back of the pantry to retrieve whenever you're in the mood.

She notes that you can use any pizza dough you choose, whether it's homemade or store bought, and when you're ready to bake, just pop the jars in a 190C oven for about 15-20 minutes. Let them cool a bit and enjoy. It's not the most efficient pizza-delivery mechanism, but it's definitely one of the most ingenious we've seen. Hit the link below for the recipe and a few more photos. If you don't like them, you can always try the previously mentioned pizza cones instead.

Too much work when you could just order a pizza delivered to your house or grab a slice at your favourite pizzeria, or a brilliant way to keep "pizza" on hand for any time the kids get whiny? Whatever you think, let us know what you think in the comments below.

Pizza in a Jar [1 Fine Cookie via Bon Appetit]


    How is it perfect for parties? Firstly it looks like some foul looking mould growing in an old jar, secondly, I'm sorry you can explain it any way you want but it's not pizza without the crust, It's lasagne in a jar!

    This is just embarrassing...

    This actually looks really gross...

    how do you eat it? with a spoon and try and scrape out all the 'pizza'? also you only get the crust once you get to the bottom..

    I think something a bit more homogeneous would work better...
