Key to Success #1 – Pick Your Favorite Pizza Flavor
We’re keeping things simple by using frozen Bagel Bites Pizza snacks for our Pterodactyl Pizzas.
They come in a cheese variety or pepperoni pizza.
We used the pepperoni pizza bites, but you can use either variety.
If you or your kids like ham or something else on your pizza, you can add it on top of the cheese pizzas.
They are easy to customize the pizzas based on the needs of your party.
Key to Success #2 – Choose Your Cooking Method
You can cook these bagel pizzas in the oven or in the air fryer.
Technically, you can heat them up in the microwave, but I don’t recommend this method for a party.
If you have an air fryer, this is an easy cooking method for your pizzas.
You may have to cook the bagel pizzas in batches depending on the capacity of your air fryer.
The oven cooking method is tried and true.
The bagel pizzas cook at 425 degrees F for about 14 minutes.
Be sure to cover your baking sheet with foil to make party clean-up a breeze.
Key to Success #3 – Add a Tag for the Pterodactyl Pizzas
When your pterodactyl pizzas are cooked, place them on a tray or board for serving.
I chose a large charger that looked a bit earthy to fit our dinosaur party theme.
Be sure to put a tag out with your pizzas to enforce the cute pterodactyl pizza name of your appetizer.
We used sticky Dinosaur-themed name tags and stick them to small pieces of card stock that have been folded into tents.
You can find printable tent cards at your local office supply store if you want to print some Dinosaur-themed food tags.
Save this Pterodactyl Pizza recipe to your favorite Dinosaur Party board or your Three Rex Party board.
