Ingredients for Making Reuben Pizza

  • One (1 pound) loaf of frozen whole-wheat bread dough, thawed.
  • 1 cup sauerkraut – rinsed and drained
  • ½ teaspoon caraway seed
  • ¼ cup chopped dill pickles (optional)
  • ½ cup thousand island dressing
  • 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
  • 6 ounces deli-sliced corned beef, cut into strips

How To Make Reuben Pizza

Step 1

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a large pizza pan. Roll the bread dough out into a large circle about 14 inches across on a lightly floured surface.
  • Transfer to the prepared pizza pan. Build up the edges, and prick the centre with a fork so it doesn’t form a dome when baking.

Step 2

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until golden.

Step 3

  • Top the hot crust with half the salad dressing, half the Swiss cheese, and corned beef and sauerkraut. Sprinkle with the caraway seed. Drizzle with the remaining salad dressing.

Step 4

  • Let the pizza stand for 5 minutes before slicing. Bake for 10 more minutes, until cheese melts and toppings, are heated. Sprinkle with chopped pickles.

What is a real Reuben made of?

A standard Reuben sandwich consists of corned beef, swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and Russian dressing toasted between layers of rye bread until the bread is crispy and the cheese melts.
