Hearty pizza snails: guaranteed finger food

What else? Are friends and family coming? Then you need 100% suitable finger food! Tin pizza snails are exactly that. If you invite someone who doesn’t like pizza snails, you can ban them from the house on our behalf. Because with this basic recipe, you can satisfy any preference, no matter how absurd… ok, you’re helpless against “I don’t like pizza”.

You really can’t go wrong with pizza. For the recipe, we use the classic version with cheese and tomato sauce, but of course it can be adjusted individually to taste. You can garnish your pizza crusts with, for example, salami or herb cream cheese. Rocket also goes well with it and gives your pizza snails even more flavor.

Tip: When rolling the pizza snails, you should take care to close the dough as tightly as possible so that the rolls do not fall apart again. The more fillings, the more important it is to roll the pizza rolls tightly.
