Pizza Snacks: New York Pizza Flavored Pirate's Booty

New York Pizza–Flavored Pirate's Booty is the standard puffed rice and corn snack, dusted with a mix of tomato powder, assorted dehydrated cheeses, and typical pizza spices. These curlicues look a bit like Cheetos but end up tasting like a sour tomato, with a hint of oregano-pizza-sauce flavor that doesn't last nearly as long as the textural journey of the puff. What starts out with a light crunch ends as a thin paste mortaring your molars, and while this may work with the original flavor, we had trouble eating these. More

Pizza Snack: Doritos Collisions, Pizza Cravers and Ranch Tortilla Chips

[Photographs: Adam Kuban] Stick the word pizza on your snack-food item, and Slice is sure to buy it. The latest pizza-but-not-pizza thing I saw at the supermarket was Doritos Collisions Pizza Cravers/Ranch flavor. The Collisions line features two flavors in one bag. The four combinations are Hot Wings/Blue Cheese, Zesty Taco/Chipotle Ranch, HabaƱero/Guacamole, and Cheesy Enchilada/Sour Cream.... More

Pizza-Flavored Snacks: Pizza Balls

Pete Schweddy's favorite pizza-flavored snack. [Photographs: Adam Kuban] There comes a time in the course of pizza-blogging when going into detail about crispness, flavor profiles, and preparation methodology is beside the point and when it is merely enough to announce to the world that Yes! This thing exists. Here it is!. This is one of those times, so ... Pizza Balls. They exist. Commence snickering. From Brim's Snacks. And, if you look closely, you'll see that Brim's follows a certain American tradition of including a tiny Bible verse on the packaging, in this case Isiah 40:8: "The grass withers... More

Pizza Muffins: Pizza Snacks Kids Would Probably Dig

[Photograph: Pizza Making] I kinda love pizzamaking.com. The folks there get extra nerdy about dough and crusts and ovens and baking but then turn around and post something fun like this technique for pizza muffins: I've been thinking about these for awhile and finally gave it a try. Easy to do. Make your pizza, roll it up, slice and place in a muffin pan.I used a dough that's about 55% hydration. Overnight retard. It's easy to roll and shape. After rolling into a rectangle I sauced it and added pepperoni and mozzarella. You have to kind of figure the... More

Video: 'Saturday Night Live' Jeno's Pizza Rolls Commercial Sketch

Saturday Night Live finally made the video available for "I Am Your Mother," the Jeno's Pizza Rolls commercial skit that aired on the April 11 episode. It stars Zac Efron, Andy Samberg, Jason Sudeikis, and Fred Armisen, and its premise is that they're all shooting a commercial for the pizza snack. Like a lot of SNL sketches, it goes on a bit too long, but Armisen is amusing as a mom cooking up an after-school snack for her kids who just can't follow the director's coaching. Funny enough, this isn't the first time that the idea of a Jeno's... More

Video: Surreal 1960s Jeno's Pizza Roll Commercial

While doing research for the previous post, I came across this crazy commercial for Jeno's Pizza Rolls: Taken out of context, one which I'm too young to have lived through originally, the commercial is completely insane and makes almost no sense. Until you find out that it's the work of Stan Freberg and is a parody of a commercial for Lark cigarettes. Who knew they were doing meta back then? Here's the Lark commercial (after the jump):...
