Baked Pizza Gyoza make a quick and easy appetizer or snack that any pizza lover will appreciate.
This post was originally published in April 2015 and has been updated with new photographs.
This recipe was originally inspired by the Never Say Xever episode of the 2012 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle series. In that episode and several that follow, they are steamed like traditional gyoza.
But, my son didn't care for the texture. So, we remade them and baked them for a crunchy afterschool snack.
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.
Baked Pizza Gyoza Step by Step
Spread out the wonton or gyoza wrappers.
Wet the edge.
Fold over and seal it.
Bake. And then try to keep them away from April and the Turtles so you can enjoy them.
