crab cake bites

While your mother may have told you never to play with your food, we think that’s the best way to come up with something new and delicious at our Red Bank pizza restaurant. That’s why we compiled this list of different items that you can create with pizza dough as the base.

Chili Cheese Dogs in Beach Blankets

While this is not something your Italian grandmother would consider using pizza dough for, summer is right around the corner. That means plenty of hot dogs and cookouts. This a great way to shake things up on your summer party menu. Simply mix in cheese, chili, and a hot dog in dough, then wrap it up and bake!

Cinnamon Rolls

That’s not a typo. You can take some pizza dough and wind it up in either big or little buns, season with cinnamon, and bake. Drizzle on some powdered sugar icing and you have a quick, delicious dessert.

Cheese & Crab Cups

Summer means seafood here at the Jersey Shore and this little treat is sure to please. Use a muffin pan and line each cup with pizza dough and mix in crabmeat along with your favorite seasonings. Bake it and watch everyone come running.

Cheesy Breadsticks

You can always call us up to order pizza and garlic bread from our Red Bank restaurant, but if you want to try this appetizer yourself, then make sure you use pizza dough. Make sure you cut the dough into strips, baste them in butter, cheese, garlic, and maybe some crushed pepper for a little spice, and you’re ready to go. The secret with these is to include some dipping sauce options for a little variety.

Stromboli Squares

This is a great finger food that you can make for a party that looks fancy, but is quite easy to make. Flatten some dough in a baking pan, lay in your favorite Stromboli ingredients, and then cover with another layer of pizza dough. Feel free to sprinkle some cheese and oregano on top to give it some extra flavor and you’re all set.
