How to make a cheap, easy and creative pizza dinner that will not break your wallet?  Well, you came to the right place.

Did you realize that when you order a take-out or dine out, the price is getting crazier and crazier?  For a family of 4, you can easily spend a week of grocery money away in just one dinner like that.  If you have a hungry family filled with teenagers, well, I don’t have to say much.  You know how expensive it is.

This dinner is super easy that you can even delegate one of your family members or a couple of them putting it together for you.  And it is super creative and cheap.  It is perfect for after school snack, too.


Serve this with Keto green salad. This will certainly bump up the fiber in-take.

The 8-oz can of sauce can make up to 30 pieces of chicken finger food pizza.  But you may not need to make that many.  If there is sauce leftover, transfer it to an air-tight glass container and it is good up to a week in the fridge.  For both cheeses, you will need to double the amount for making such a large quantity.

If you really need to cook that big volume, separate the chicken pizzas into 2 baking sheets.  They can cook in the oven at the same time.

I personally love to enjoy this little pizza with hands.  For a bigger crowd or young children, cut them into small wedges for easy serving and pass around.

Recipe Ingredients and Tools

Finger Food Pizza Recipe and Instructions

1 bag Frozen Store-Bought Breaded Chicken Patties (about 10 patties)
1 can (8oz) Tomato Sauce
1 bag (8oz) Pre-shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1 cup freshly Pre-shredded Parmesan Cheese (in the produce aisle)
Pepperoni Slices (2-4 slices for each pizza per your preference)
Dried Oregano (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
Dry Parsley Flakes (optional; for garnish only)


  1. Preheat oven per package instructions.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and single layer chicken patties on baking sheet and bake per instructions to cook half way.
  3. Turn chicken patties over the other side and spread tomato sauce on top (1 tbsp per patty).
  4. Add oregano, salt and pepper to taste, then top with the following ingredients in this order: Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese and pepperoni slices.
  5. Finish the rest of bake time in the oven per package instructions until cheese is melted and chicken pizzas reach desired doneness.

Make It Bite Size for Fun and for Kids

Do you have chicken nuggets somewhere in the freezer? Having this finger food pizza recipe in bite size is not only easy to make, but also fun to eat, especially it's an occasion with plenty of young children. The way how to make it is very similar to the original recipe. Here are the steps:


  1. Preheat oven according to packing directions and line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Single layer chicken nuggets on a baking sheet. Make sure there is space 1/2” around each nugget so that each nugget can crisp up.
  3. Bake according to package instructions with the longest cook time. (For instance, if the package says, “Bake for 10-13 minutes”. Then, bake 13 minutes.)
  4. While baking, warm up the tomato sauce on the stove top.
  5. Once bake time is up, take baking sheet of chicken nuggets out. If possible, move the nuggets closer to each other. This will make adding tomato sauce and cheeses much easier.
  6. Use a soup ladle to carefully spoon tomato sauce on top of the baked nuggets, add pepperoni (mini pepperoni will be fun, but not necessary) and sprinkle cheese on top. (A soup ladle allows you to have more sauce at once and only add just enough sauce on top of each nugget before moving on to the next one. Otherwise, it will take up plenty of time to spoon the sauce from the saucepan to each nugget one at a time.)
  7. Transfer the nuggets back into the oven with same temperature and bake for another 3-5 minutes until cheese is melted. Sprinkle Italian seasoning and/or parsley for garnish (optional). Enjoy immediately!
