The holiday season is slowly (or quickly) approaching! We all know what that means ... parties, gatherings, joy and of course lots and lots of food!
This year I teamed up with a few other amazing bloggers to put together a #2014CocktailPartyHop! That means that we have you covered for all kinds of great recipes and ideas for your holiday parties from cocktails to appetizers to desserts!
I have to admit that I am a little obsessed with really good appetizers! I am the person who is always excited about the appetizers at a cocktail party or the one in the restaurant that would rather order some yummy fried cheesy appetizer when the dessert menu comes around! Yup that's me! So as a result I decided to contribute one of my favorite little bites of food to this cocktail party blog hop!
I chose to submit my mini pizza bites. I came up with these one day when I had invited some friends over for a "make-your-own" pizza party. After my friends left, I had just a bit of pizza dough left as well as some extra sauce, grated cheese and toppings. I asked myself what to do with all these scraps - and this amazing idea came to me! I pulled out my mini muffin tins and started pressing bits of dough into them with sauce, toppings and cheese! The result - Yum!!
After that day I decided to start making these bites on a regular basis. They freeze really well - after you make them place on a baking sheet in the freezer for a couple of hours, then place in a ziploc bag. They will keep well for about 6 months. With the stress of holiday planning, a recipe that you can make ahead and take out the day of your party is always appreciated! For the full recipe click here. Give it a try for your holiday party this year! Your guests will thank you!
