Cookie Pizza

It’s that time of year again…
the time when the leaves start changing, the air gets crisp and many married women become single once again…at least on Sundays.
Whether college football is your thing, NFL or even fantasy (God bless those wives) it definitely consumes the lives of many men.
There are certainly levels of consumption:
Let’s start with the average dude…he roots for his team of choice, tunes in on Sunday to see who’s playing and catches up on all the rest with SportsCenter.
Next we have the “fan”. He roots for one team, likes to spout off statistics and buys tickets to see his team play.  His Sunday’s are booked from now until January. He tail-gates and yells at the TV.  His wife knows that the backyard project is going to have to wait until Spring and she wouldn’t even mention the invite for Sunday brunch.
Finally, the Crazy.
This is the guy that owns jerseys…even though the last time he actually played in a football game was 1992.
He is part of multiple fantasy leagues.
He may or may not have been spotted on the Jumbo-Tron with his face painted and a foam finger.
He lives and breathes football all year long, from the drafts to the training camps to the pre-season.
His Sundays are ruined when his team loses and considers the players extended family.
Now, if you don’t live in the United States you are probably not affected by Sunday Football Syndrome…
but, to those of us who reside here in Football-land, we all probably know a few of the “types” I listed above.
So since you’re here why don’t we make football a little cute?
Whadaya say?
Pizza is one of the quintessential football foods…
but, since this is my blog…I’m gonna do pizza MY way.
Cookie pizza!

Excuse me for a moment while I share some candy porn…

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

Can't say I'm a huge football fan…I feel like the game really starts and stops WAy too many times and I get distracted…maybe that's why there's so many snacks?!? 🙂 I CAN say that I've been dreaming of this cookie pizza since I first glanced at it the other day! YUMM!

We're a huge football family here!I don't have a favorite NFL team but on Saturdays it's the UK Wildcats all the way! Since my husband discovered that his cousin who lives two blocks from us has the NFL channel where you can watch 8 games at one time, we spend our sundays at his house! But, his girlfriend and I usually make dinner. bake, and watch a movie while they're watching all the games so it works out!

Football takes up my husband every Sunday!!! All day and on Monday nights!!! But I get to spend all my time baking while he's yelling at the tv 🙂

Sure football affects my Sundays but not in a negative way! I love to have the games on while I do other things. Being in a confidence pool definitely makes it more enjoyable and so would that pizza cookie. Looks delish! I will be trying that soon.

The rule in our house is that he can watch as much football as he'd like as long as he mutes the volume! Then it doesn't impede on my Sunday if I'm trying to read or something:) somehow my husband agreed to that…..Go Chargers!

Football is synonymous with Sunday at my house. My husband and I do a fantasy draft with my family (dad, brother, sister-in-law, cousin, and a random friend) and the hubby does another draft as well. I've been watching NFL since I was a kid (go bears!), and it's still the only sport I watch. We usually go over to my dad's on Sundays (he has DirecTV Sunday Ticket and laundry facilities), watch football, talk football, have dinner together, and watch some more football. We both get antsy if we have to miss our respective team's games (I'm a Bears fan… Read more »

Football…LOVE LOVE LOVE Football, but with 3 young kids who LOVE their sports to, there is little time to catch the games all day on Sundays. 🙁

well, I live in the state of Alabama, so football does not affect my Sundays as much as it affects my Saturdays. ROLL TIDE ROLL!!

I love football Sundays! I'm a Pop Warner mom from way back!

oFootbal is what it's all about at my parent's house, so we head over there and get our fix and then go home to our quiet house afterwards!
