Copy Cat Caesars Mini Pizza

 Copy Cat Caesars Mini Pizza

If you are bought up in the UAE, you know what this pizza means to adults and kids who have devoured them in their childhhod! 1 dirham for this yummiest mini pizza (though now prices have changed), the taste is the same nostalgic one!

I tried recreating these yummy bites, though they are not as good as the original, but definitely taste close to it! The emmental cheese is what gives it the similar taste of Caesars Mini pizza. I have been experimenting this recipe for sometime now, and finally we have this delicious Caesars mini pizza recipe.

Unlike other mini pizza, there are no veggies and chicken or other protein involved in the original version, but you may add it depending on you. Since it's Ramadan and kids may fast, making these easy pizzas at home is such a life saviour! And these freeze well too, they are a great snack for school lunch box too!!

Ingredients :

For the dough

  • 1/2 Cup water
  • 5 tbsp Xtra Virgin Olive Oil/ 1/4 cup Vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Instant Yeast
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Tomato paste 
  • 3-4 tbsp Tomato Ketchup
  • A dash of Oregano
  • Emmental Cheese, shredded


  1. In a bowl, mix together the lukewarm water, olive oil, sugar and salt.
  2. In another bowl, combine the yeast and all purpose flour, and gradually add the water mixed with olive oil, salt, and sugar.
  3. Mix together to form a dough and knead well. 
  4. In a greased bowl, place the dough and cover with a cloth or cling wrap and keep the bowl in a warm place.
  5. Allow to rise for 60-90 minutes.
  6. Make the sauce by mixing the tomato paste, tomato ketchup and oregano. 
  7. Place small balls and using a roller, flatten into small thin discs (they will rise when baking/ airfrying), smear the prepared sauce and finally sprinkle some shredded Emmental Cheese generously.

  8. Bake or airfry in a preheated oven at 170 deg C for 10-15 minutes or until the pizza bread just bakes and the cheese melts. 

  9.  Your Caesar style mini pizza are ready!  


You may use half and half ratio of water and milk instead of only water for the dough, but you will have to bake it at the lowest temperature, as the milk can make the pizza bread bake and change color faster, turning it to harder exteriors.
