Pizza Pull Aparts

 Pillowy soft bites of dough, are stuffed with pepperoni and mozzarella, for an amazingly delicious appetizer for Game Day.


Football season started last week. Are you a football family? I was never a big football fan, but when I started dating my SO, 2 1/2 yrs ago, I quickly came to the conclusion that if I wanted to spend time with him on Sundays I'd have to start watching football. Over the last couple years I've grown to like the game and even understand most of it. Since Sunday's are football days, I like to cook some snack type foods we can enjoy while watching the games.

My family absolutely loves these, and they aren't that difficult to make. I make my own dough, but you could simplify these by using canned biscuit dough. They cook up nicely and are a great two bite snack, that will fill your tummy so you can keep watching your favourite teams on Sunday. They would even been a great addition to a Superbowl spread!



Start by taking golf ball sized pieces of your pizza dough and roll them into 3 inch circles. Place 1 slice of pepperoni and 1 cube of mozzarella in the center of each circle. Bring the edges of dough up over the filling and pinch to seal. Place seam side down in a greased baking dish. (complete recipe to follow)


Pizza Pull-Aparts


2 to 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp Rapid Rise Yeast
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4-1 cup very warm water (120 F to 130 F)
2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
15-20 pepperoni slices
15-20 cubes mozzarella cheese
3 Tbs butter, melted
1 large clove of garlic
1/2 tsp basil
fresh grated Parmesan cheese
favourite Pizza sauce

In you mixer bowl, combine the flour, salt and yeast. Mix the oil with the water and pour half the water into the dry ingredients and mix until a dough forms; adding more water, as needed. Once dough is moist and pulls away from sides, place bowl in mixer. Using the dough hook, knead the dough at medium speed, for 5 minutes. Stop mixer, remove from hook and cover with a warm damp cloth. Let rest 10 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly oil a 9x13 inch baking dish with olive oil. Taking gold ball sized pieces of dough, roll it out to a 3 inch circle. Top with a slice of pepperoni and a cube of cheese. Take the dough and bring it up, over the filling, to the center. Pinch seams and place in baking dish. 

In a small bowl, melt the butter with the garlic. Stir in basil and brush butter over tops of dough. Sprinkle everything with Parmesan and bake for 15-20 minutes; until tops are golden and dough in center is cooked through. Serve with your favourite pizza sauce, that has been warmed.

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.



When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??





This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

8 Ways to Have a Fun and Delicious Halloween at Home

Wondering how to spend Halloween this year, due to the pandemic? Well I have 8 fun and delicious ways to make an at home Halloween, tons of fun!



2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends. Being someone who could be vulnerable during these crazy times, I have been trying to make every day life as normal as possible. With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
