  • 4 ounces spaghetti cooked
  • 1 can refrigerated pizza dough I used Pillsbury
  • ½ cup marinara sauce
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese grated
  • ½ cup mozzarella cheese grated
  • 12 slices pepperoni optional
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • marinara sauce optional for dipping


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat and set aside.
  • Flour a work surface. Open the can of pizza dough and stretch it out on the work surface.
  • Using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, create a 3x6 grid of rectangles that are approximately 2x3 inches each.
  • Arrange 9 rectangles an inch apart on the prepared baking sheet. Add a spoonful of sauce, spaghetti, parmesan, mozzarella and optional pepperoni onto the middle of each rectangle.
  • Place the lollipop sticks about an inch into each rectangle. Then place the remaining 9 rectangles on top, pressing the edges together with a fork to seal.
  • Brush the tops with beaten egg to glaze. Then bake for 20 minutes until puffy and golden.
  • Remove from the oven and cool for at least 5 minutes before serving.



  • Storage: You can make these ahead of time and freeze in a resealable plastic bag for up to 3 months. Thaw and reheat in the oven for 20 minutes.
