Here’s an idea for a great party snack for the Super Bowl, or anytime! This recipe combines two previous recipes I’ve given in recent blog entries. The first thing you’ll want to make is the Herb Bread dough. Make as the recipe calls for, but when it’s ready to bake, spread out as pizza dough on pizza pan or stone. This won’t take quite as long to bake as the bread, Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees. It may take less time depending on your oven. When it’s finished, let it cool. When I baked mine, my crust got really thick and I was afraid it wouldn’t hold all the toppings I wanted to put on, so I sliced the whole top of my crust off. This is a judgment call, so if you think yours is too thick, slice away! There would probably be enough dough to divide and make two pizzas if you wish. If you slice, just lay the top aside for now.
On top of the crust I spread an 8 ounce package of cream cheese that I beat with the mixer, adding a little of my own Italian dressing to make it creamy and easy to spread. Next you will want to chop up your toppings. I used broccoli, onions, tomatoes and my own Homemade Cheese .
You could use any number of toppings with this, so get creative! Whatever you choose, just sprinkle your chopped toppings over the cream cheese. That’s it, ready to cut and eat! This was a very big hit with everyone that tried it!
Wait … what about that top I cut off? I buttered mine on both sides and pulled it apart into pieces. I seasoned them, and put under the broiler for 5 minutes, stirred them, then put them back under for another five minutes, and … homemade croutons! They didn’t last long either!
