Tailgate Treats #1: Mini Deep Dish Pizzas

We've moved from "Slow Cooker Sundays" to what I lovingly refer to as "Fat Sundays".  Football season is in full swing, which means that Sunday nights now are dedicated to tailgate-type dishes ... and believe me, I have a list a mile long.  Tailgate-type treats aren't something we normally indulge in, but football season just isn't complete without some yummy, hearty, mildly-unhealthy dishes.
These adorable little pizzas are one of our favorite things to make.  I found them on Pinterest, but the picture never had a link.  So, to the person who thought of these - thank you!  Who knew football food could be so cute?!  ...and, you know I love anything mini - makes me feel like they aren't too unhealthy.
Best dishes and yummy dreams!

Super cute, Kim!! And I totally agree...we've come to be "grazers" on Saturdays since, being on the West Coast, our schools play at strange times. Just means that Sunday and Monday have become SUPER light foods and meal-sized salads to make up for all the greasy (yummy!) football food!!! :-)
