Oh, I know you remember these, right? I’ve done many, many, many posts over the past five years. Sometimes I create something, think myself brilliant, and they are total duds. Most times, I create something I like, and it’s received honorably. Other times, I create something and look back and wonder what in the world I was thinking. And on a few occasions, just a few, I’ll make something that strikes a chord with internet surfers. Like these pizza pops. Oh boy, where these a huge hit! They’ve been all over the internet and back. I first made them in October, 2010 for a blog contest. The challenge was to put our own spin on pizza, and I of course thought of sticks because I have this thing for putting stuff on a stick.
They worked really, really well. I’ve made them a few times since and have had pretty good results each time. In a nutshell, you unroll a tube of Pillsbury pizza crust (the original, NOT the thin crust), cut out circles (this takes a bit of muscle, as the dough is malleable and stretchy, but twist and turn that cutter), stick in a stick, put on a baking tray and top with your pizza toppings. I do knead and re-roll the scraps, by the way, though you have to tug and pull a bit given the elasticity.
