This winning idea is super fun for your Super Bowl party guests and takes a little of the work off of you. Have fun and be creative with the toppings using a mix of proteins and veggies or determine your toppings based on your favorite team's home base

Here's how you do it:

  • Purchase uncooked dough from the supermarket or your local pizza place. Ahead of time, portion balls of dough into rounds depending on how big you want the pizzas. Coat with oil to keep the dough from drying out. Place in fridge in covered pan. 

  • Purchase pre-made pizza crusts from the market, in variety of sizes and flavors.

  • Don't overlook French bread, Italian loafs, foccacia or flatbreads for easy pizza crusts.

  • Offer 1 or 2 sauces such as tomato or pasta sauce and alfredo or white sauce.

  • Set up toppings in bowls, plates and small platters. Serve up the usual suspects like pepperoni slices and cooked Italian sausage

  • Purchase or prepare meat options like grilled or seasoned chicken, mini meatballs, diced pre-cooked bacon

  • Good vegetable choices are mushrooms, red onions, red, green, banana or jalapeno peppers and fresh garlic.  Slice veggies thinly to assure they soften and cook in the oven.

  • Cheeses are the wild card. Most of us are picky about our cheeses. Mozzarella and parmesan are typical but fontina, Monterey jack, blue and sharp cheddar are also good choices.  Using a mixture is always more interesting

  • Top cooked pizzas like the pros with fresh basil leaves, red pepper flakes, arugula leaves with a squeeze of lemon or drizzle the pizza with siracha or ranch sauce.  Top with salsa or olive salad.
