Christmas Wreath Pizza Ring

Turn your pizza into a Christmas wreath with the help of refrigerated crescent roll dough. Stuff with your favorite pizza toppings for a tasty and festive appetizer.

Christmas Wreath Pizza Ring 1

When it comes to making homemade pizza I’m all about homemade pizza dough, as made evident by the many different pizza dough recipes I have shared. It’s just too easy! In the time it takes my oven to preheat, the dough has risen. However, I have yet to try my hand at homemade crescent dough – now that intimidates me. So to make this festive pizza ring resembling a Christmas wreath I went ahead and bought 2 cans of refrigerated dough.

This Christmas wreath pizza ring would be a great idea for a holiday party. I brushed it with pesto to give it a green hue and cut the bottom of a bell pepper out to look like a red ribbon. Inside it’s stuffed with cheese, pizza sauce, and three meats: pepperoni, Italian sausage, and prosciutto. Place a bowl of pizza sauce in the middle and it’s ready for the table!

Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken with Balsamic Date Sauce

Fancy looking food doesn’t have to be difficult. Cook up with prosciutto-wrapped chicken with a balsamic date sauce in under 20 minutes.

Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken with Balsamic Date Sauce

How do you make cheese stuffed and bacon wrapped chicken fancy? You use prosciutto instead of bacon and slather it with some balsamic-date sauce. This chicken may look and sound fancy but it is also easy to make, with the hardest part being not eating the prosciutto before wrapping it around each piece of chicken (maybe you should buy extra just in case). After cooking the chicken to golden perfection, balsamic vinegar and chopped dates are combined in the same skillet to absorb all the leftover chicken, prosciutto, and cheese flavors. Spoon over chicken and enjoy.

Prosciutto, Pear, and Gorgonzola Bagel Bites

Bagels are not just for breakfast. Make these fancy bagel bites with arugula, prosciutto, pear and gorgonzola for your next party or as an afternoon snack.

Prosciutto, Pear, and Gorgonzola Bagel Bites

Be warned, I’m going through an arugula and kale phase. I’ve already shared an arugula topped pizza and a panini with kale, but prepared yourself for a several more recipes featuring these greens in the upcoming weeks. Starting with these fancy little bagel bites topped with spicy arugula, salty prosciutto, sweet pear, and tangy gorgonzola cheese. You won’t find these in your local grocery store’s freezer section.

I was inspired to make these bagel bites upon hearing the news that my friend’s Tabletop Board Game Cafe has officially started construction and will soon be ready at 1810 West 25th in Ohio City, Ohio. Tabletop will feature over 1000 board games (I’ve seen their stock-pile it’s impressive), a weekly trivia night, and monthly DIY design sessions in their maker space. But what does that have to do with me? Well on the menu you just might find a few Spiffy Cookie-contributed creations!

Arugula, Black Garlic & Cherry Tomato Pizza

Sweet, spreadable black garlic is the star of this pizza. The whole wheat thin crust is also topped with fresh mozzarella, prosciutto, cherry tomatoes and baby arugula.

I should be in Memphis today. Weezer is performing at Snowden Grove tonight and a few months ago I swore I would find a way to get there but as time ticked away I realized it was not fiscally responsible to buy tickets for a band I’ve already seen 3 times – even if it’s been over 7 years since I last saw them. Of course that’s not all, there’s also a Dishcrawl event in Memphis today for bacon lovers. To compensate you might find me jamming out to Weezer all day while eating bacon.

While this pizza does not have bacon, it does have prosciutto which is basically fancy bacon. It also has a bunch of other fancy things such as fresh mozzarella, arugula and black garlic. What the heck is black garlic? It is caramelized garlic which is the result of being heated at a low temperature for about 40 days. So yea you can make it yourself if you feel like leaving a hot plate/slow cooker on for 40 days straight or you can just buy some like it did (I found it at Jungle Jim’s in Cincinnati, OH). It has the spreadable consistency of roasted garlic but a sweeter flavor. In other words you’ll want to spread it on everything like butter.
