Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Spoon a tablespoonful of the tomato paste over each "inside" half of a hot dog bun.
  • Lay the sauced buns, sauced-side up in a large pan covered in aluminum foil.
  • Sprinkle all of the buns with basil.
  • Sprinkle cheese over all the buns evenly and then sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  • Sprinkle pepperoni over the cheeses and place in oven.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Add your favorite toppings! Let the cooked pizza cool for about 10 minutes and let the kids pull off the "buns". Kids love this easy recipe.
  • You can also just make a cheese pizza and dip the finished "buns" into a bowl of heated commercial or homemade spaghetti sauce.
  • I'd like to add that hot dog buns make great French Toast "sticks. Just dip them in a mixture of eggs and milk and fry to golden brown in butter with a little olive oil. Serve with some powdered sugar and some maple syrup!
  • And if you like Cinnamon Toast? Spread the hot dog halves with butter and then sprinkle with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. Bake for about 15-20 minutes (350 degrees) and serve.
  • You can also make bread pudding, garlic bread and even some great croutons! Let me know if you have some recipes using the buns. Thanks!
