Pizza, by Any Other Shape, Tastes Just as Good

Who doesn't like pizza, especially when you're talking about a meal for the younger crowd?

Susie Fishbein's Kosher by Design: Kids in the Kitchen offers this funky spin on the traditional.

Even the youngest chefs can help out on this one.

Pizza Bubble Ring


nonstick cooking spray
8 Tbsps. (1 stick) butter
2 garlic cloves
1 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp.onion powder
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. crushed red-pepper flakes
2 lbs. fresh or frozen pizza dough, thawed
8 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese
2 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 cups pizza sauce from a jar

Preheat oven to 350°.

Spray the tube pan with nonstick cooking spray. Make sure to spray the tube as well. Set aside.

Place the butter into a microwave-safe bowl. Place it in the microwave for 1 minute to melt. You can also do this in a small pot over low heat.

With your garlic press, mince the 2 cloves of garlic into the butter.

Add the oregano, onion powder, black pepper, and crushed red-pepper flakes. Stir with a spoon to combine.

With a sharp knife, carefully divide the dough into 40 small balls.

Flatten one of the balls and place some of the mozzarella into the center of it. Roll the dough up around the cheese to enclose it. Do this with all 40 balls.

Dip each ball into the butter/spice mixture and place into the prepared tube pan.

Sprinkle the Parmesan over the dough balls. Drizzle on any extra butter mixture.

Place into the oven and bake for 35 minutes, or until golden-brown.

Let cool for 5 minutes, then carefully lift the tube from the sides of the pan.

Place the tube on a serving plate.

Warm the pizza sauce in a small pot over medium heat.

Serve the pizza bubble ring warm with the pizza sauce.

Serves 8.
