  • 2 sheets puff pastry defrosted if frozen
  • ¼ cup tomato sauce plus more for dipping
  • ¾ cup mozzarella shredded, low-moisture
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese


  • Preheat oven to 400˚F and line two baking sheets with parchment or lightly grease. 
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll the 2 sheets of puff pastry into smooth, equal rectangles.
  • Brush the tomato sauce over the top of one of the puff pastry sheets, leaving a ½ inch border around the edges. Sprinkle evenly with the shredded mozzarella. Top with the other sheet of puff pastry.
  • In a small bowl, beat together the egg yolk and water. Brush over the top of the puff pastry. Evenly top with the oregano, garlic powder, and grated Parmesan cheese. 
  • Cut the sheet lengthwise into 9 equal long strips, then cross-wise twice to cut the strips into thirds to make 27 small sticks. Twist each stick gently while holding the two sheets together and place on the prepared baking sheet. 
  • Bake in preheated oven until puffed and golden, about 15-20 minutes. Serve with additional tomato sauce for dipping.



  • We use puff pastry sheets to make these Pizza Twists, but they would also work with will pizza dough.
  • For frozen puff pastry, defrost at room temperature for about an hour before using to make it easier to roll and twist.
  • Fill the Pizza Twists simply with tomato sauce (your favorite store-bought or homemade) and shredded mozzarella cheese. Do not use the balls of fresh mozzarella. They have too much moisture.
  • Be careful to only add a thin layer of tomato sauce to the puff pastry or it will end up leaking out everywhere.
