Pizza Sticks





Biscuit dough pizza sticks FINAL 2

Pizza Reimagined and Kid Approved! 

Hi Everyone! Do your kids love pizza as much as my little guy does? We all know it can be a struggle (sometimes war) to get our children to eat at times. Well, fear no more, Pizza Sticks are here! I was at the store one day looking for a fun and simple snack to throw together for Logan and his friends after school and I decided to try creating pizza sticks. What a huge hit! I bought some basic biscuit dough, a few ingredients, and the rest was history. The recipes will be provided below for you guys to try.

I love these pizza sticks because they are so easy to make; from the package to your kid’s mouth in about 30 minutes. Not only is this inventive take on pizza easy for all you parents out there, you can also make them as nutritious as you want. I made mine using the traditional pizza ingredients (pepperoni, cheese, and pizza sauce). However, feel free to experiment with these fun snack sticks by sneaking some veggies in them; your kids may be so entranced by the gooey cheese and warm carbs they overlook the broccoli! In addition to bringing a smile to your kid’s faces, you will also be the star of the neighborhood if you serve these tasty little wonders as an after-school snack!

So, get ready for a no stress, foolproof, and undeniable delicious snack. Oh, and I should warn you to be prepared for the onslaught of kids knocking at your door to chow down on these amazing pizza sticks! Do you guys have a favorite after-school snack that your children go crazy for and is super simple to make? If so, please post below in the comments.

Now, Let’s get snack-a-lackin’!

Roll dough out so edges are even. Use a pizza roller to cut into 12 squares and stuff each square with your favorite pizza fillings. I used mozzarella sticks and pepperoni.

Next, roll dough over toppings and fold ends under. It should look something like this.

 Brush tops of pizza sticks with butter garlic mixture and bake as directed on package. (For a little extra goodness sprinkle top with parmesan cheese.)

Give the cheese a few minutes to cool down and serve with pizza sauce for dipping. Enjoy!

Lasagna Sandwich on Texas Toast




Lasagna Sandwich

Lasagna Sandwich on Texas Toast

As a kid, I was never really a huge fan of lasagna. My mom used to hide onions in it and then swear up and down she didn’t put any in. Yeah, okay mom (insert eye rolling emoji). I remember folding my garlic bread in half and stuffing it with lasagna or spaghetti to mask the taste of the onions.  But as I got older I learned that if I made Lasagna my way, extra mozzarella, hold the onions,  I actually loved it! And let’s not forget a nice thick slice of garlic bread or Texas toast to slop up the extra sauce. For me, this is actually the best part of the meal!

(*I know that half a pound of ground beef does not seem like a lot of meat but trust me it’s PLENTY. There will be enough to make 4 sandwiches, I promise 😉 )

After pondering this for awhile I thought to myself why wait until the end of my meal to fully enjoy it? Why not enjoy every bite? So I decided to stuff loads of lasagna meat sauce and extra mozzarella between two slices of Texas toast. It was AMAZING! And probably one of the quickest warm meals I have made in awhile. Every bite left me totally satisfied and wanting more. I had to stop myself from eating another sandwich… it was so tempting. If you decide to eat two there will be no judgment coming from me, I totally get it.

Side Note: When making these sandwiches it is very important you do not overcook the texas toast. If you do, you’re sandwich’s will be very hard to eat. Since the texas toast will get wrapped in foil and go back in the oven I use the lesser cooking time of the Texas Toast package.





Deep Fried Pizza Tortellinis

pizza tortellinis


* Warning: these are very addicting.

Ingredients: 

1 – bag cheese tortellini’s

1 – Cup breadcrumbs ( I used plain)

2 – eggs

1 -Cup Mozzarella cheese

10-15 pepperonis ( diced into small pieces OR you could buy a pack of the mini pepperonis)

Directions:

* I use a deep frying pan to fry these. Make sure your oil is hot enough before you put your tortellini’s in or they will get soggy. I have never used a deep fryer for these but it could be done that way, as well.

Thaw tortellini in the fridge overnight. In a small bowl add eggs and beat. In a second bowl add breadcrumbs. Use a fork to dip the tortellini in the egg, and then into the bread crumbs. Once they are well coated in bread crumbs, carefully place them into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown. Drain them on a plate that has been lined with paper towels. Throw the paper towel away and place the tortellini into a small oven safe bowl. Top the tortellini with cheese and pepperoni and put them in the oven under the broiler. Boil until cheese melts. This doesn’t take long at all so  watch them carefully. Take tortellini out and serve with warmed pizza sauce (  I warm mine in the microwave). Enjoy.
