Pizza inspired recipe from the game Overcooked!

Ok, Overcooked! is one of the best games ever made. I admit, we play it all day and way past midnight sometimes, it’s so addicting. Time really flies when you’re having fun!

It’s also a game that tests your relationships, family and friends. If you want to see someone through all seasons of life, through all emotions, happy, excited, frustrated, sad, mad, you’ll get it all in this game. Time runs out and you’ll see it all after just a few rounds. Hehe.

Here is my recipe for the homemade pizza from the first game. We beat the first game several months ago. That spaghetti monster was most difficult though! I love the music, especially how it speeds up at the end when time is running out! We’re on the 2nd edition now, special editions like the Campfire CookOff and Surf ‘n’ Turf.

I used the breadstick dough from my breadsticks recipe:
Easy Garlic Parmesan Breadsticks

I used the tomato sauce from my recipe:
Garden Fresh Tomato Sauce from Scratch



  • A plate
  • Pizza dough (my recipe: Easy Garlic Parmesan Breadsticks)
  • Pizza sauce (my recipe: Garden Fresh Tomato Sauce from Scratch) but you could certainly use just tomatoes, just roast them in the oven at different stages for depth of flavor
  • Cheese, grated or chopped in this case, any variety such as mozzarella, colby jack, cheddar
  • Toppings as desired, perhaps sausage just like in the game


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (204 C).
  2. Layer pizza sauce, cheese, and toppings over dough.
  3. Bake directly on rack until cheese is melted and cooked through (this depends on what dough you use, I lightly prebake mine when making homemade by itself on a pan, then layer ingredients, then bake it again to finish it directly on the rack so it isn’t soggy).
  4. Remove the pizza using the plate.
  5. Deliver on time to the service window to fulfill the order before it falls off and you lose all your tips!
