The smell of pizza is irresistible to pretty much everyone, including our dogs.
But pizza can contain many off-limits ingredients that dogs should not be eating, such as onion, spices, and high amounts of salt and fat.
So sharing that last slice of pizza with your pup is not a great idea. Instead, opt for these pizza-flavoured dog treats.
Not only are they perfectly safe for your dog, they will make your kitchen smell awesome!
- 1 cup of spelt flour
- 1/3 cup of white flour
- 50 ml water
- 1 small handful of basil
- 1 small handful of sundried tomatoes
- 1 small mozzarella ball
Preheat the oven to 375°F or 180°C.
Finely chop basil, mozzarella and sundried tomatoes and set aside.
Place the flours in a bowl. Add the chopped basil, mozzarella and sundried tomatoes.
- Add water and mix it all together. The dough should be fairly dry but still hold together. If the dough is too dry, add additional water one tablespoon at a time. If the dough is too wet, add additional flour one tablespoon at a time.
Roll the dough to 3mm thick by using a rolling pin.
Use the rim of a glass approximately 3 inches in diameter to cut out round treats. Score them with a knife into ‘pizza slices’
Bake until the surface of the ‘pizzas’ are golden brown, around 20 minutes.
Turn the oven off and allow the treats to cool inside the oven completely before removing them to a cooling rack.
Store them in an airtight container
Pop one in your pocket and break off a slice on your next walk!
