Greetings! Let's start this one off by saying, I am tired! This holiday season has simply wiped me out! I can't remember a year when I was this tired. We worked very hard this year for some reason to get the holiday pulled together. I don't know if it was the fact that we work a lot or the fact that pay schedules did not allow us to do our holiday shopping as early as we would have liked, but in the end, Christmas was wonderful and now that we are through it, we are focusing our sights on the coming new year.
With that in mind I thought it might be nice to do a couple of videos featuring fun foods that you can serve to guests as pick ups or appetizers. I am also planning on doing a couple other special things for the grown ups, but this one will be for anyone who loves a pizza!
I made this pizza roll up a couple of weeks back for Rick so he could try it out for lunch one day and he loved it. I used what I had on hand and it turned out lovely. This goes together quickly with ingredients that you probably already have on hand and this idea can go a long way. If you want to take this in a different direction you go right ahead!
A large burrito sized tortilla is where we start and then I layered on about a half cup of shredded Italian blend cheese. Topped that with a layer of thin sliced, good quality pepperoni and a sprinkle of both pizza seasoning and Parmesan cheese. Popped that in the microwave for about a minute just until the cheese was melted and then rolled the whole thing up tight.
When I made this for Rick, I just sliced it in half on an angle but if you are making these for a crowd as an appetizer or a pick up finger food, then you may want to slice each one in to four or even six slices. I would not recommend slicing them too thin though because they will unravel and fall apart while eating. You don't want your guests to ruin their party clothes. I served this with some marinara sauce on the side for dipping. Voila'! Easy appetizers!
You can easily change this up and make it into any type of pizza you like, vegetarian, ham and pineapple, meat trio, even layer in some ham and swiss cheese and serve with some honey mustard for dipping. Simply delicious. This is the perfect quick and easy appetizer that you can make at the drop of a hat. Any time you have people drop by you will be ready to greet them with a love warm platter of this quick and easy treat.
I hope you consider give this a try and I hope you love it!
You can watch how I made these here!
