It’s Friday night and in our house that means Pizza Night! After a long week of getting up early for school, racing around to after school activities, homework and hectic schedules, it’s nice to pick out a movie together (last week we watched Ratatouille and the week before it was Wall-e), spread out a picnic blanket on the living room floor, grab some cut up veggies and make one of our favorite pizza recipes using pre-made or dough we’ve made on our own plus Veggie Heavy Pizza Sauce. Sometimes that means Quilt pizza, Pizza Balls or Green Machine Pizza or recently these whimsical Pizza Party Lollipops.

We’ve always got a load of wooden popsicle sticks laying around as the kids are super into crafting with them or me making Kulfi Ice Pops, Pancake Sausage Muffins on a Stick or Strawberry Yogurt Ice Pops, so I thought it would be fun to take pizza dough, have the kids help me make ropes out of it, wind one around a wooden stick, flatten it on a parchment lined baking sheet and then top with tons of cheese.

If there’s one thing our family eats a lot of it’s cheese, so I’ve teamed up with Wisconsin Cheese to share these Pizza Lollipops. You can top them with any type of good melting cheese or even a combination you enjoy like mozzarella, cheddar, gouda or fontina like I did here. They’re not only cute to eat, but since you get to dip them in tomato sauce it’s a ton of fun too.

    We made these last night and they were a big hit with the whole family. However, while the dough was cooked perfectly, the cheese was dark brown and all crispy after just 25 minutes. Did you wait until it had cooked for a while to add the top layer of cheese? We’ll definitely make these again, but want to make them even better next time! Thanks for the great idea. Pizza lollipops and Rio 2 made our night!

    Maybe it’s a California thing, but my favorite combo is thinly sliced Bosc pear, crumbled Gorgonzola and rough-chopped pecans. Beyond delicious (and obviously quite decadent!:) My 13 year-old is adventurous as well – her favorite is thinly-sliced Yukon Gold potatoes, shredded Fontina and a sprinkle of White Truffle Oil. Try it!
