Purim is coming soon and it is time for some hamantaschen cookies. Instead of the traditional cookies that everyone makes for the holiday, I thought I would give mine a twist! Everyone loves pizza, in any shape or size, with different toppings and cheeses, gluten or wheat - pizza is universal. So why not make Pizza Hamantaschen? It’s the best of both worlds.
To create the pizza filling, I used shredded mozzarella cheese and finely chopped tomatoes (also known as polpa). I used this brand and mixed the tomatoes with the cheese and added a small teaspoon for each cookie. Don’t be tempted to add a lot of filling, the hamantaschen will open up and you will only end up with mini pizza cookies. Trust me, it happened to me when I tested the recipe.
To add even more flavor, I added sliced olives. You can also add any other pizza topping you like, the ball is in your court.

The recipe yields 18 cookies approximately, it all depends on the size that you make them.
