Pizza is arguably the most fun and delicious food on earth. But what if it could be made even more fun? #challengeaccepted

We transformed pizza into lil’ lollipops, perfect for your football party platter.

#SpoonTip: You don’t have to like football to like these.

And these babies come together in no time at all. All you need is some store-bought pizza dough, Hunt’s diced tomatoes in sauce (which are peeled using steam from simple hot water, instead of *chemicals), a little cheese and a whole lot of enthusiasm (#goyourteam). Pizza lollipops are sure to be an epic touchdown on your Super Bowl party spread, so get rolling.
