Baked Pizza Gyoza

Yes, another Ninja Turtles inspired recipe. But these Baked Pizza Gyoza make a quick and easy appetizer or snack that any pizza lover will appreciate.

The Never Say Xever episode of TMNT came on last week, and of course my Ninja in Training asked me to make them. Having bought some wonton wrappers to make some Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Baked Ravioli from Crunchy Crafty and Highly Caffeinated, I knew I had everything to fulfill his request.

The first time I tried to make them, I steamed them like Shez Crafti did. I thought they were great, but Sir Snubs a Lot did not like the texture. So this time, I baked them. Oh my! These were even better!

Use your favorite pizza filling, we had mini pepperoni slices so I went with those. Plain cheese is great too. And aside from the actual baking part, kids of all ages can help make these.

There are no real tricks to making them except keep an eye on the oven when you bake them so they don’t burn.

Spread out the wonton or gyoza wrappers.
