What Is Pizza French Toast?

Basically, pizza French toast is a savory snack food, reminiscent of bagel bites or mini grilled cheeses. It’s made of a classic combination of bread, pizza sauce and mozzarella, then fried with plenty of butter on the stovetop like French toast. However, unlike traditional French toast, it’s not sweet at all and is served with pizza sauce instead of maple syrup.

How to Make Pizza French Toast

Pizza French toast is remarkably easy to make, so long as you have the ingredients on hand. The trickiest ingredient to source is the unsliced hot dog buns; if you can’t find them, using cut white bread or even baguette slices would work well too. For the mozzarella, feel free to use a block version or a pulled ball in brine, if you have access to one. And if you want a little extra classic pizza flavor, add some pepperoni slices to your pizza french toast.


  • 3 unsliced hot dog buns or long bread rolls
  • 1 jar pizza sauce, divided
  • 8 ounces mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 1 package pepperoni slices (optional)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Butter, for frying


Step 1: Prep the bread

Cut the bread rolls into bite-sized slices, each about 1/2 inch thick. Onto one bread slice, spoon about a tablespoon of pizza sauce. Top with one or two slices of mozzarella and another bread slice. If you’re using pepperoni, add it now.

Repeat this step until you have used up all of the bread. Be sure to save some pizza sauce for dipping.

Step 2: Combine ingredients

In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, and oregano.

Step 3: Melt the butter

Heat the butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat.

Step 4: Coat the bites

Dip the pizza French toast bites into the egg mixture, coating both sides.

Step 5: Cook ’em up!

Once the butter is frothy, place the dipped pizza French toast bites in the pan. You can cook multiple toasts at a time, so long as you leave a little room between each for flipping.

When the toasts are pan-fried to a nice golden brown, flip them and let them brown on the other side. This should take just a couple of minutes.

Step 6: Enjoy!

Remove the pizza French toast bites to a plate and serve with extra pizza sauce for dipping. Bon appétit!
