I can’t believe Christmas is just a few days away now. It always comes and goes too quickly! Today I’m sharing a holiday themed snack or appetizer – pizza stockings! Back in the summer I saw a picture on Pinterest or somewhere else online of pizza stockings and I remember thinking “oh that’s a cute idea”. Well, that image stuck in my mind because as the holiday season approached I thought to myself that I needed to make these pizza stockings.
I didn’t look up any recipes, but I’m sure you can find some out there. I just bought pizza dough, used my stocking cookie cutter, used left over tomato sauce, shredded mozzarella cheese, and fresh basil.
Getting these stockings cut was not as easy as it looks! The pizza dough is so much stickier and moist compared to cookie dough which is what cookie cutters are normally made for so it took a knife and a bit of peeling to get these stockings cut out.
Then I spread some tomato sauce on the stockings, put some shredded mozzarella only on the top of the stocking, where the white cuff usually is on traditional stockings, and some basil on the rest of the stocking. I made a few of the stockings with the fresh basil on them for baking and for the others I put the fresh basil on after they came out of the oven.
The pizza stockings came out really good and delicious! These would make a really cute appetizer for any Christmas gatherings you may be having or attending!
