Mini Party Pizzas & Entertaining with Hickory Farms
Thank you to Hickory Farms for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.
These crowd pleasing Mini Party Pizzas are cheesy and delicious! They’re the perfect easy recipe for serving at your next party, game day or tailgate!
We’re in the heart of the holiday season and I am in my element. The holiday music is playing, it’s sweater-weather and I’m looking forward to spending some quality time with my husband and kiddos in the coming weeks.
I’m also excited about entertaining our friends and family! While I love being in the kitchen, I don’t love preparing complicated dishes. For me, simple is best. That’s why I am in love with everything Hickory Farms has to offer and these Mini Party Pizzas!
There are so many creative ways to use the yummy products from Hickory Farms during the holiday season. Hickory Farms offers so many great gifting choices and the serving options are endless. From sweet treats to savory appetizers, Hickory Farms is one of my go-to products when it’s time to feed my crew—especially throughout the holidays.
Ever since I was a child, I’ve adored their wide variety of flavorful summer sausages and cheeses. Even though the sausage and cheese paired with crackers is a fabulous appetizer on it’s own, I decided to combine my two favorites with a little pizza sauce and tortillas for a quick and easy mini pizza. Everyone in my family went nutzo over these cute pizza cups. They’re great for an after school snack, a holiday appetizer or even work as a dinner when served with a side salad or some roasted veggies.
Aside from the mini party pizzas, Hickory Farms has been a holiday tradition in my family for as long as I can remember. The Hickory Farms pop-up shops in the middle of the mall are a must visit during my Christmas shopping adventures. My mom and I always enjoy the loads of irresistible snacks to sample. It makes for a great time to pick up beautifully presented (and delicious) gifts and holiday apps.
The All Day Celebration Gift Box is one my favorite options for gifting those hard to buy for family members and I always pick one up for myself too. There is so much variety in this one box that it’s a great one to have on-hand throughout the holidays. The Chocolate Covered Strawberries are a fantastic solution for teacher’s gifts, hair stylists, bosses and the list goes on.
Can I just say how much I love this Hickory Farms Chipotle Ranch Sauce. It’s the perfect dipping sauce for everything from French fries to Hickory Farms Crab Cakes. In fact, all of the sauce choices in the Condiment Flight are pretty much to die for and are fantastic for serving anytime.
Okay, now I’m craving a huge Hickory Farms cheese and meat tray along with some of these Mini Party Pizzas! It’s a good thing I’ll be making a plate very soon for all of the upcoming holiday gatherings I’ll be hosting. I hope you guys love this recipe as much as my family does!
