Pigs in Blankets

Let's talk about an important part of pigs in blankets: the blanket. With so many pastry and dough options out there, it comes down to your personal taste and the kind of vibe you're after. For a bit more chew and a touch of oooft, we recommend giving pizza dough a whirl. It'll give your piggies a hearty, yet tender hug and make your taste buds sing!


  • 250g pizza dough will make around 16 pigs in blankets...or should that be pigs in plankets?
  • 16 cooked cocktail sausages or mini hot dogs
  • 400ml pizza sauce
  • 200g grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • Olive oil for brushing


  1. Preheat your oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas mark 6.
  2. Lightly brush a baking tray with olive oil.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pizza dough to a large rectangle, about 1/4-inch thick.
  4. Cut the rolled-out dough into 16 equal-sized rectangles. 
  5. Spread a small spoonful of pizza sauce on each rectangle of dough.
  6. Sprinkle some grated cheese over the sauce.
  7. Place a cocktail sausage or mini hot dog at the end of each dough rectangle. 
  8. Roll the sausage up in the dough like a traditional pig in a blanket.
  9. Place the piggies on the pre-prepared baking sheet, making sure the seam is facing down.
  10. Lightly brush each doughy blanket with olive oil, and cover with a generous grating of Parmesan cheese.
  11. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, until the pizza dough is golden brown.
  12. Allow to cool slightly, then serve with a bowl of your tomato pizza sauce, or chipotle mayo.
  13. Oink oink. Watch a video of them.
