The Super Bowl is the biggest sporting event of the year, and it’s also a time for friends and family to come together and enjoy delicious food. I am always on the lookout for tasty and easy-to-make snacks to share with my loved ones during this special occasion. That’s why I am excited to share my recipe for cheese-stuffed pizza balls in the shape of a football!
These bite-sized pizza balls are filled with gooey, melted cheese, arranged into a football and topped with pepperoni. They are perfect for serving at your Super Bowl party, as they are easy to make, fun to eat and sure to satisfy everyone’s cravings.
One of the great things about these pizza balls is that they are customizable to suit any taste preference. You can fill them with any combination of cheese and toppings you like. If you’re a meat lover, you can add in some pepperoni or sausage on the inside. For a vegetarian option, you can load up on mushrooms, peppers, and onions.
Not only are these pizza balls delicious, but they are also easy to make. The dough is simple to roll out and fill, and they bake up in just a few minutes. You can even make them ahead of time and reheat them when it’s time to serve.
Whether you’re hosting a big Super Bowl party or just enjoying the game with a few close friends, these cheese-stuffed pizza balls are sure to be a crowd-pleaser. So why not try making them for your next game-day gathering?
How to make a Cheese-Stuffed Pizza Football
-2 Cans of Pizza Dough
-Mozzarella Cheese Sticks
-First roll out a can of pizza dough and cut into squares. I make 5 vertical cuts and 3 horizontal cuts to get 18 squares of dough.
-Then cut 6 string cheese sticks into thirds and place a piece of cheese in the middle of each square.
-Roll your dough into balls around the cheese.
-Set these aside and repeat with another can of pizza dough and six more string cheese sticks.
-Arrange your dough into a football on top of a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet.
-Then mix together melted butter, garlic powder and parsley flakes and brush on top of the football.
-Top with pepperoni and make sure all of the dough is covered to really define the football shape.
-Bake on 400 for 15 minutes.
-While it’s baking cut another cheesestick into two long pieces and three short ones. These will be your laces.
-Once the football is done, arrange these on top and place back in the oven for another minute or two.
-Serve and Enjoy!
