Did someone say Triscuit Pizza? Yes, please! These kid-friendly, after-school snack bites can be made quickly and easily. They're perfect for hungry little people (and adults), they're incredibly delicious, and they will satisfy all of your pizza cravings. If you're looking for easy snack recipes, this is a good one!
Triscuit pizzas are one of our all-time favorite [easy] after-school snack recipes. We always keep a box of Triscuits and pepperoni on hand JUST for this reason!
Here's why we love this recipe:
It's easy - We prefer a whole pepperoni stick (sliced thick), but pre-sliced pepperoni will save more time. In under 10 minutes, you can feed a hungry little crew!
It's nostalgic - Triscuit pizzas have been around for a long time. I ate them a lot growing up. They remind me of my childhood and they stir up many fond memories.
It's kid-friendly fun - I always loved spending quality time in the kitchen with my kids when they were little. This is the perfect snack recipe to let young children help prepare (supervised, of course)!
It's tasty and filling - I mean... it's pizza in a different form. Who doesn't love that? AND, it will only take a little to fill you up. It is the ultimate snack recipe when you're craving something salty.
- Triscuit crackers - We use the regular salted variety, but the garlic flavor would work well, too.
- Pepperoni - Slice a pepperoni stick and freeze the rest for later. We like the pepperoni stick flavor over the pre-cut varieties.
- Cheese - Mozzarella is the best. We like to cut the fresh snacking mozzarella in half for each cracker.
- Parmesan - We sprinkle a little extra parmesan on top sometimes for added flavor. Use grated, shredded, or shaved parmesan, whichever you prefer.
Note: Refer to the recipe card below for exact quantities.
How to Make Easy Triscuit Pizza Bites
Step One: Prepare the Pizza Bites
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Evenly space 15 crackers onto a rimmed baking sheet. Layer each cracker with cheese, followed by pepperoni, and then shredded parmesan.
Step Two: Bake
Place the pan into a preheated oven and set a timer to bake for 10 minutes. Depending on how thick your pepperoni is, this may take a little longer. Watch carefully to ensure the pizza bites do not overcook.
- Cheese - If you don't have mozzarella on hand, provolone would also work.
- Pepperoni - Other Italian meats, such as different types of salami, could also be used.
- Add-ins - Add extra topping if you'd like! Try olives or peppers (diced small). You could even add pizza sauce and fresh basil.
- Alternative - Make a version of this without the cracker. One of our favorite snacks is Jalapeno Cheese Crisps. No crackers, just cheese and a slice of jalapeno. Yum!

This snack is best if you eat it immediately after cooking. The crackers tend to get soggy if stored in the refrigerator.
Leftover pepperoni can be frozen for 1-2 months (for best quality).

They're made with whole grain and contain more fiber than a traditional cracker. They also have no added sugars. If you'd like a lower fat version, try the Reduced Fat Triscuits.
The pepperoni stick wins for flavor, but pre-sliced pepperoni is easier. Buying a pepperoni stick allows for thicker slices which are sometimes intentionally used for the curl factor. See Serious Eats Why Does Pepperoni Curl?
Pepperoni is made with pork or a mixture of pork and beef. It is cured with nitrates to prevent botulism.
