I know all good food bloggers are posting their best Thanksgiving recipes right now. They have that covered. Believe me, I’m thinking of the big show, too, but there are a lot of days between then and now and a lot of days afterward and it can’t be turkey and stuffing all the time.
This recipe today is for the parties. Obviously we’re party central this time of year. Between mid-October and the first week of January, every one of my five sons has their birthday. Every. Single. One. Of. Them. In other words, from mid-October to the first week of January we are the hap-hap-happiest, most festive household since National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. (Now, let’s see… who is our Cousin Eddie? Come on. You KNOW every family has one.) If it’s not a birthday party it’s a Thanksgiving party. If it’s not a Thanksgiving party, it’s a Christmas party. If it’s not a Christmas party it’s a New Year’s party. We cannot be the only household doing this right now.
See that bread? That’s a total sanity saver. It’s not only mega comfort food -can food get more awesome than bread/cheese/butter/garlic/pepperoni?- but it’s as easy as can be to make. The Pizza Party Bread is everything you love about pizza and garlic bread minus the call for take out or the time involved in making homemade pizza.
It’s party perfection… who can resist ooey, gooey, melted mozzarella on buttery garlic bread in the first place?Not me, I’ll tell ya that. And when you add lovely crisp little pieces of pepperoni? It’s all over but me licking the foil, folks.
To really drive that pizza flavour home, we like to serve this with a bowl of warmed pizza sauce for dipping on the side. And much like the recipe that inspired this one, there are never leftovers. Whether you serve this for a quiet movie night at home or in quantity for a party buffet, you’re going to be a very happy camper.
