I am all about an easy dinner.

Especially one that my kids won’t groan or gag at.

Last night we made red beans and rice and my little guy took one bite of the beans and started gagging at the table.

Such a nice reaction to the the meal I spent the last HOUR preparing.

It’s those precious moments that I need to remind myself that I am supposed to love them ALL the time.

My kids aren’t the pickiest eaters out there, but when something crosses their lips that they don’t enjoy, gagging seems to be their first impulse.

Nothing better than going extreme to get your point across.

Anyhow, most kids like pizza.

And most adults.

Because it’s basically the perfect food.

Which bring me to these Pull Apart Pizza Breadsticks, which are a fun spin on pizza…and can totally be used for an appetizer.  Because really, a meal disguised as an appetizer is the best idea.

And THAT is why my jeans are tight.

Let’s talk breadsticks…

Also, apparently breadsticks is 2 words.  Which I find super annoying.  SO I’m going to continue to spell it as one.  Take THAT dictionary.

 

Just open you a can of breadsticks and separate it into 2 equal parts, stretching the dough so it’s a little thinner.

Top that with cheese. All the cheese…

Then top that with your favorite pizza topping.  In this case we used pepperoni because we aren’t creative at all.

Just make sure to chop your topping into smaller bits…

Sprinkle the cheese with your topping du jour…

Dior.

Sorry.  That COMMERCIAL!

OK, place your remaining breadstick sheet on top of all that and brush with garlic butter.  YESSSSS…

If you have a non-pepperoni lover in your house, aka the gagger, let’s make cheesy pull apart breadsticks instead.

Oh my.. these look ahh-mazing! I’m so gonna try these and soon 🙂 These would be perfect for a girls’ night, or a weekend night with the fam. I’m sure they would love me forever if I managed to make anything with even remote resemblance to this 😀

Seriously, I need those in my life.

At least your kid just gags. One of mine would actually hurl.
The first time he met spinach, he gagged, choked, and hurled right onto the plate. This was almost 40 years ago and it was canned spinach. Since then, he has never been able to eat what he considers to be’slimy’ foods. No Jello, no canned spinach, no gravy.

Look at this cheesy pepperoni-y goodness! Fun recipe!

Yaay!! A dinner that kids don’t gag over! Lol. Glad I’m not the only mom who has kids like that. Nothing ruins a lovely family Spaghetti dinner like the 7 year old making super dramatic faces. Pizza is usually a hit here too!

Wow. I was JUST thinking about what to make for dinner and realized that I had ingredients for pizza. I will definitely be making this! I usually make my own pizza dough. Do you have any suggestions for making these pull apart, even if I’m making homemade dough? Thanks!
