A FUN PIZZA WORK OR SCHOOL LUNCH

I love hand held snack foods. They are easy to serve and these Pizza Kabobs couldn’t get much easier to make. These kabobs are a fun twist on pizza but in an easier to eat form without any oven involved. We make these often during the year and they are great to eat at home, at parties or to send to school with your kids. They are really light and are amazing when dipped in the pizza sauce which really completes this Pizza Kabob recipe.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

What pizza crusts should I buy?

You can use any size or brand of pizza crust you can find. Boboli is a popular brand. I used a pack of the smaller ones. Just make sure that they are fully baked. They are in vacuum sealed bags and you can usually find them down the pasta aisle of your grocery store near the pizza toppings and pizza sauce. You could even use a cauliflower pizza crust!

Can I switch out the pizza crust for something else?

You sure can. Some other options would be pita or naan bread. You could even cut up some smaller bites of Italian bread. It’s very easy to customize this recipe to your tastes.

Do I have to use marinated mozzarella balls?

No. I like the additional flavor it adds but you can grab a ball of fresh mozzarella and cut it into pieces or just purchase some mozzarella cheese sticks and cut them up into thirds.

What are some good dipping sauces for pizza kabobs?

Some of our favorites include: pizza sauce, pesto, ranch dressing, marinara sauce and garlic butter.

Any substitutions for the basil?

If you don’t enjoy basil, you can just leave it out. I love the color and flavor that it adds to the kabobs. However, you could substitute with baby spinach or another soft green leaf vegetable.

What are the best skewers to use?

If you are sending these to school with your younger kids, be sure to use blunt skewers only. These bamboo skewers at Amazon are what you want to look for (not an affiliate link). Otherwise, you can just go with a traditional cocktail skewer.

How do I store leftover pizza?

These can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1-2 days. The basil will begin to wilt though. I don’t recommend freezing.
