Pizza is arguably the most fun and delicious food on earth. But what if it could be made even more fun? #challengeaccepted

We transformed pizza into lil’ lollipops, perfect for your football party platter.

#SpoonTip: You don’t have to like football to like these.

And these babies come together in no time at all. All you need is some store-bought pizza dough, Hunt’s diced tomatoes in sauce (which are peeled using steam from simple hot water, instead of *chemicals), a little cheese and a whole lot of enthusiasm (#goyourteam). Pizza lollipops are sure to be an epic touchdown on your Super Bowl party spread, so get rolling.


Mini Pizza Roll Lollipops

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10-12 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Servings: 10 pizza pops



  • 1 lb premade or homemade pizza dough
  • 1 cup Hunt’s diced tomatoes in sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, or 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried or fresh basil
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup toppings of your choice (such as pepperoni, bell peppers or olives)


1.   Preheat oven to 400º F.

2.   Roll out the pizza dough until it is approximately 10 inches x 14 inches (a little larger than a piece of printer paper).


3.   In a blender or food processor, combine Hunt’s diced tomatoes in sauce, garlic, basil and oregano. Pulse until combined.


4.   Spoon cheese over dough, leaving a one inch margin. Cover with cheese.


5.   Add additional toppings. Fold over ends on both sides.


6.   Roll into a long log (hot dog style, not hamburger).

7.   Cut log into slices, about 1 inch in thickness.

8.   Place slices onto a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.


9.   Remove from oven, and immediately stick with a clean lollipop stick or chopstick.


10.   Serve and enjoy. Go team.


*Lye peeling is generally recognized as safe by the FDA and has no adverse effects on the healthfulness of tomatoes.

Behold: The Octopizza with Tentacle Breadsticks


As instructables user donedirtcheap explains, eating pizza by its triangular pointy ends is so passé and normal breadsticks are awfully boring. So, what’s the perfect solution to turning these traditional food items into something more riveting? Make an Octopizza Pie, of course.

The recipe calls for pepperoni suckers slapped onto tentacle-shaped breadsticks and a pizza pie filled with a center oozing with cheese and tomato sauce. Simply break, dip and eat.

Note: No Octopus were harmed for this recipe.

H/T Instructables


Oven-Baked Feta Cheese Dip

Feta cheese – you either love it, or hate it. Growing up, I had no choice but to love it. As a Macedonian you are almost expected to want to eat it night and day. It’s like an Italian and his/her mozzarella cheese; they go hand in hand.


Craving: Pizza on a Stick

What we’re looking at is baked mozzarella cheese dough topped with pizza sauce, and a plethora of options including extra cheese, pepperoni, onions, green peppers and mushrooms. Maybe accented with a little ranch/Tapatio dipping sauce and we’re good to go! (Thx HerbKoeFunFoods)


Craving: Meatlovers Pizza Breakfast Burrito

Eggs, cheese, tomato sauce, ham, sausage and pepperoni wrapped in a tortilla. Apparently this is a real burrito, but the website that we were directed to was less than stellar, even though they provided real life images of the burrito.


Craving: Francesinha

Francesinha, which means Little French Girl in Portuguese, is a sandwich from said country which is made with bread, wet-cured ham, linguica, fresh sausage, steak or roast meat, and covered with molten cheese and a hot thick tomato and beer sauce. I guess a nice side of fries does the trick as well! I’m incredibly hungry now.
