Mini Football Pizzas

Mini football pizzas

I’m celebrating my 3 year blogiversary so I’m having some friends over to enjoy these mini football pizzas and a movie but I promise these are perfect for a tailgate or casual football Sunday 🙂  You can’t tell because my photographer amiga is out of town and I’m not quite as talented with my Olympus but I served the pizzas on these adorable little Vietri plates.

Here’s my recipe!

Ingredients:

  • 4 Eat the Ball footballs cut in half lengthwise
  • 1 cup of marinara sauce (I used homemade but you can use your favorite kind)
  • 1 cup of shredded part-skim mozzarella
  • 1/4 cup part-skim ricotta cheese

Preparation:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place halved footballs cut-side down on a baking sheet in the oven for 5 mins or until slightly crispy (who wants soggy pizza on the bottom?) Then flip them and toast the top for another couple of minutes.
