GameDay Gorgonzola Pizza Bread Appetizers

Let’s be honest. Who really watches the Big Game? Isn’t it really just another reason to get together and feast while two teams tackle it out on a massive flat screen TV? No matter your motive, food for your guests or food that you’re taking to a hosted event, matters. Regardless of who wins, your stomach needs to be happy!

These appetizers are one that I whipped up several years ago and have been a go-to for social events such as GameDay. In fact, I served them up as a starter during recent New Year’s Eve celebrations. These Gorgonzola Pizza Bread appetizers are flavorful to wake up your taste buds, will warm you up on a cold February day and are super easy to make.

If you’re going to bring these to a party, prep everything on a baking tray and simply bake it up at your destination to make sure everyone can enjoy them hot out of the oven.
