English Muffin Pepperoni Pizza
Pizza is great, but it’s not exactly the perfect party food—the English Muffin pizza, on the other hand seems expressly made for the occasion. Whip up a batch to delight your guests (or to devour in private, the choice is yours).
Pizza Mac and Cheese
If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “I love pizza, I love pasta…but alas, never the twain shall meet!” (or something like that), then this is the recipe for you. Perfect for serving a crowd, this macaroni and cheese is decked out in full pizza style: Italian sausage, pepperoni, soppressata, tomatoes, black olives, pepperoncini, mozzarella, basil and more give it that familiar slice feel.
Homemade Pizza Rolls
Look—I’m not going to judge you if you pick up a box of frozen pizza rolls to dish out this Sunday, but I will admire you if you decide to go this route, instead. They take a little bit of work, but boy, is it worth it: juicy Italian sausage, gooey cheese, and tangy sauce all wrapped up in freshly fried dough? Do I really need to keep going? I didn’t think so.
Foolproof Pan Pizza
There’s just something irresistible about pan pizza…I mean, when it’s described as “thick-crusted, fried-on-the-bottom, puffy, cheesy, focaccia-esque”, how could there not be? This recipe will give you the comfort food of your dreams, and, more importantly, the dreams of your guests. Plus, the fact that you can bake and serve it all in your cast iron makes for quick clean up.
Pizza Bread Buns
Worried that greasy little tomato-stained fingers getting everywhere will detract from your ability to enjoy the game? Satisfy the pizza craving with significantly less mess: these pizza buns are self-contained bundles of tomato- and oregano-flavored dough, wrapped around cubes of provolone and sprinkled with Parmesan.
Barbecue Chicken Pizza
Buffalo chicken may be the more traditional game day choice, but this Barbecue Chicken Pizza is pretty certain to steal the show—for now, leave the blue cheese to the wings. Topped with red onion, grilled barbecue chicken, barbecue pizza sauce, smoked mozzarella, and a post-bake sprinkle of cilantro, this pie is a study in bold flavor.
This is the perfect choice for anyone caught groceryless, desperately off-guard, and in sudden need of a way to feed the masses: pizza waffles. I’m not talking whipping up a batch of tomato imbued and mozzarella swirled dough, don’t worry. All you need is a waffle maker, leftover pizza, and maybe some fresh toppings—those slices are going to receive a serious transformation. Crispy, gooey, and perfectly thrifty.
Deep-Fried Garlic Knots
Garlic knots are well and good, but…it’s the Super Bowl. If you can deep-fry something, you should probably go ahead and do that. These deep-fried knots, sprinkled with Parmesan and fresh herbs, make the perfect party appetizer; just make sure you’ve got plenty, because they’ll be gone in no time.
A fan of the Pizza Waffle idea? Here’s another trick you can have up your sleeve: the Pizzarito. Simply pick up a batch of Totino’s frozen pizzas, and follows our step-by-step process for turning them into a burrito-slice lovechild. Stick a fancy toothpick or two into these and you’ve got party food!
Pizza Monkey Bread
This Pizza Monkey Bread is sure to be a hit with any of your younger guests. Although, seriously, your older ones will love it too—who doesn’t want fresh dough doused in tomato sauce and baked with cheese? That’s what this entire site is about.
Pepperoni Pizza Supreme Nachos
Okay, you say you want some nachos? I get it, nachos are delicious. But you don’t have to compromise here: just make these pizza nachos, instead! Tomato paste and fresh cherry tomatoes instead of salsa, mozzarella in place of cheddar, some pepperoni, a few black olives...I think you get the picture. The delicious, meat- and cheese-laden picture. So go ahead, have the best of both worlds.
