With the football playoffs here I have been trying out new recipes for the party for the Big Game! I have had these pizza poppers from Oh Bite It bookmarked to try for a while and now was the perfect time to make them! You really cannot go wrong taking something already great like pizza, making small bite sized balls and then frying until golden brown and crispy!
These pizza poppers a so easy to make! You pretty much just roll out the pizza dough, cut it into squares, top it with your favorite pizza ingredients, wrap the up and fry them. After they have been cooked you can sprinkle on some parmesan and seasonings and serve them with hot pizza sauce for dipping.
These are so good dipped in pizza sauce. Lick your fingers clean good!
All of the flavours of pizza rolled into balls and fried until golden brown and crispy! These little pizza poppers a stuffed with plenty of melted cheese and perfect when served with pizza sauce for dipping!
