Pizza Scones - These scones are soft, buttery goodness that you will go crazy for

Hi Bold Bakers!

Do you know how many ways you can enjoy pizza? The answer is as many as you want!! That’s why I’m adding Pizza Scones to my Pizza repertoire. We have made Pizza in a Mug, Pizza Pop-Tarts, Pizza Monkey Bread and of course, my Best-Ever Pizza Dough. Growing up in Ireland, it makes perfect sense I would try my hand at Pizza Scones.

These scones are very similar to American style biscuits. They are buttery, soft and oh so delicious. Biscuits by themselves are lovely, so just imagine how insanely good they will be stuffed with cheese, pepperoni and all the incredible pizza flavor.

These Pizza Scones make great snacks but they are an even better compliment to dinner time or served with a bowl of soup at lunch time. Or you could just do what I did which was inhale three of them while we took our photos for this recipe post.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups (16oz/ 450g) all purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 sticks (6oz/170g) butter, frozen
  • 2 cups (4 1/2 oz/) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup Pepperoni , chopped small
  • 10 sun-dried tomatoes , chopped
  • 1 tablespoon dried Italian herbs
  • 2 cups (16oz / 500g) buttermilk

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425oF (220oC). Line a baking tray with parchment.
  • In a large bowl, sieve the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cornstarch together.
  • Grate in the frozen butter into the dry ingredients. Frozen butter gives you light, fluffy scone.
  • Grate in the cheese. Follow by the chopped pepperoni, sun-dried tomatoes and herbs. Mix all of these ingredients together lightly. take care not to over mix and it can toughen your dough.
  • Add in the buttermilkand mix until combined. The amount of buttermilk might vary. If you need a little more to create a wet batter then add a little more.
  • Using a 1/3 measuring cup (or a large spoon) scoop the scones mixture onto the prepared baking sheets. This mix yields you roughly 12 big scones.
  • Bake the scones for 15-18 minutes or until the tops are puffed and golden brown.
  • Serve straight away fresh from the oven.
  • Storage: Can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 2 days. They also freeze really well.

Hi Gemma! I absolutely love ur recipes. I he tried the crazy dough and made cinnamon rolls with it. They just vanished as soon as they were out of the oven. Then I tried one cookie recipe and endless flavors. Awesome.
Today I tried it pizza scones. Thank you!

Gemma… I love your recipes. Last night my 8 year old grandson and I made your recipe for Pizza Scones. They were delicious and a big hit with my grandchildren. I love that your recipes are so child friendly, Both my 3 year old granddaughter and 8 year old grandson love to get in the kitchen with their nonni. Your recipes make it easy and so much fun. My grandchildren love to make butter…buttermilk and so much more. Thank you so much.

I did everything but didn’t have pepperoni or tomatoes so just added garlic and spring onions with a few extra sprinkles of celery salt and it was YUM! Cheese and chive scones. Crunchy and biscuity on the outside, fluffy and moist inside. The kids can’t eat it fast enough.

Hi Gemma! Used this recipe as a base recipe, left out the tomatoes and pepperoni, added in some chopped scallions instead and boy they were DELICIOUSSSSS!!!!! So cheesy buttery crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside! I did feel bad after eating through 2 of them straight out of the oven (burnt my tongue, 220 degrees c is verryyyy hot) cuz of all the calories but I guess some sacrifices have to be made. (since my major exams are over I have been on a baking marathon and I’m pretty sure I’ve gained weight ????) They did spread… Read more »

Hello,
dear Gemma, i need your advice:) In the recipe you said these scones could be frozen, I wasn’t very attentive and froze 6 of them before baking. What should i do now? Does it make any sense to bake the frozen scones?

P.S. the ones I baked straight away were really delicious, even my picky sister was completely happy with them:) The scones even looked like yours one!!!
