These tasty morsels of goodness will be the hit of the party!
Prep: 20 min Total: 40 min Servings: 8
1 lb. refrigerated pizza dough
Egg wash (1 egg whisked with 1 tbsp water)
7 mozzarella sticks
1/4 c. melted butter
1/2 c. finely grated Parmesan
1 tbsp. Thinly sliced basil
1 tbsp. chopped parsley
1 tbsp. chopped rosemary
Marinara, warmed (for serving)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cut mozzarella sticks into 1” pieces. On a floured surface, divide pizza dough into two pieces. Stretch and roll each piece of dough into a long rectangle, then cut dough into 2” squares (you’ll need 33 total). Wrap a dough square around each pieces of mozzarella, forming a tightly sealed ball. Place balls seam-side down on the baking sheet in the shape of a Christmas tree (they should be touching). Brush egg wash on dough balls and bake until golden 15-20 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk together melted butter, Parmesan and herbs. Brush on baked pizza dough balls. Serve warm with marinara for dipping.
Everyone will love this substitute for buffalo wings.
Prep: 10 min Total: 10 min Servings: 3
1 head of cauliflower, cut into large florets
1 c. flour
1 c. milk
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 c. buffalo-style hot sauce (such as Franks)
1/4 c. butter, melted
Ranch dressing, for serving
Celery sticks, for serving (optional)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
Make batter. Combine flour, milk and garlic powder in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper and whisk until the batter is smooth.
Dredge cauliflower in batter until evenly coated. Shake off excess batter and transfer cauliflower to the lined baking sheets. Bake until the cauliflower begins to turn golden around the edges, about 20-25 minutes.
Meanwhile make buffalo sauce. In a medium bowl, whisk together hot sauce and melted butter until evenly combined. Toss baked cauliflower “wings” in the sauce before serving.
Serve with ranch dressing and celery sticks, if desired.
