Mini Margherita Pizzas are the perfect tailgating treat! Easy, fun, and SO yummy! These mini pizza bites are loaded with tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil. So yummy.
I’ve said before that Fall is my favorite season, for SO many reasons. The weather, the PUMPKIN EVERYTHING, the anticipation of Christmas…but most importantly…FOOTBALL!!! It’s tailgating season y’all!! These Mini Margherita Pizzas are the absolute perfect tailgate treat. They’re easy, fun, and most importantly so delicious. Try to eat just one…I dare you!
I was inspired to make these cute little babes while browsing Pinterest. I saw a pin from Damn Delicious for Mini Deep Dish Pizzas and I knew I had to try! Hers were pepperoni, you can see the original post HERE. I love how versatile these are…the sky is the limit with toppings!
These are especially yummy served hot and melty, but let me tell you, they’re also great cold!! I was popping these Mini Margherita Pizzas straight from the fridge and was equally as addicted!! So…watch out. Like I said, I dare you to eat just one.
