I created this recipe for my sisters Bas Mitzva; I wanted to serve something child friendly, yet classier than pizza.


These Knishes have all the components of pizza- dough, cheese and sauce- and they are sophisticated enough to serve at an adult party.



Mix all filling ingredients until smooth. Split dough into two parts.


Starting with one portion of dough, roll into a rectangle approximately 10 by 12 inches.


Cut rectangle into 12 squares. Place two teaspoons of filling into each square, then fold each into a triangle. Repeat with second portion of dough. 


Place 24 knishes onto two baking trays. Optional: brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds.


Bake for 22 minutes at 350F.
