More About This Recipe

  • Make these easy stuffed pizza footballs and settle in for a great season cheering your fave team!

    I'm headed to my first football game of the season this weekend to watch the Miami Dolphins play at home. Every year as I listen to the national anthem at the first game, I get chills. It marks the start of four solid months of football.

    I know to some women that means four months as a football widow, but I live for football. I love the smell of fall and fresh cut grass. I've since traded it in for the smell of sunscreen and sweat now that I live in Florida. I love the food and the game. I don't know,'s still a toss-up between the food and the game.

    If there's anything I've learned in my football watching days, it's that pizza is the ultimate crowd pleaser. And these Stuffed Crust Footballs with Pizza Sauce Dip are for sure to be a hit.

    Just roll out some pizza dough and cut it into football shapes. If you have a football cookie cutter, great! If not, just eyeball it with a knife.

    See how my football isn't perfectly shaped? This dough is very forgiving and makes amends in the oven.

    Pile your favorite pizza toppings on top of one of the footballs and top it with a second football. Make sure you seal it together tight so none of the goods leak out. Take a fork and crimp the edges of the football. This seals it even tighter and accentuates the football shape.

    If you paid attention, you might have noticed we didn't put any pizza sauce in our pizzas. From my experience, things get way too messy when you add it inside the rolls. So instead, just warm up some marinara and dip your pizza footballs in it. You can't watch football without dipping something, right?

    Now you’re ready for the football season!
