Football season is in full swing, and that includes high school football!  Even though it’s been “a few” years since I was in high school, I still enjoy rooting for the home team, and my husband played football in high school so he is always happy to watch anyone play.  Our son has also been in marching band, so we’ve enjoyed going to the football games to see him play, and while we’re there it’s a great chance to check out the game and enjoy ourselves.

One thing that’s changed since I was in school is the pre-game festivities.  Much like they do at colleges, people now tailgate, spirit parades, and other fun activities.

If you read this blog regularly, you know that I love homegating and serving food for football games.  For a high school game, I think it’s just as fun to serve up a few appetizers for family and friends to enjoy before attending the big game.

The other day we had a nice spread of food. I made a few appetizers, and our main dish was Tony’s pizza.  I purchased Tony’s® Pizzeria Style MEAT-TRIO® Pizza and Tony’s® Pizzeria Style Cheese Pizza.  Their pizzas feature 100% real mozzarella cheese and sauce made from real tomatoes, and their pizzas bake up in about 20 minutes, making them ideal for you tailgate or homegate parties!

 

You can find Tony’s pizza in the freezer section at Walmart.  Look for all their delicious varieties:

  • Tony’s® Pizzeria Style Pepperoni Pizza
  • Tony’s® Pizzeria Style Sausage & Pepperoni Pizza
  • Tony’s® Pizzeria Style Cheese Pizza
  • Tony’s® Pizzeria Style Supreme Pizza
  • Tony’s® Pizzeria Style MEAT-TRIO® Pizza

I like baking these pizzas as a main dish, and it’s also fun to slice the pizza into many smaller pizzas in order to serve “finger food” size portions.  Tony’s pizza is also very affordable, and because it’s so quick to make you can always stick extra pizzas in the oven if you have last minute or unexpected guests arrive.

Ibotta Offer!  You can also get $1 cash back off your pizza purchase with Ibotta.

I also made a few appetizers to go with our pizza.  It was basically an entire table full of man food!

One of the appetizers I made to go with the pizza was a platter of Sausage & Cheese Pinwheels.  This is a very easy appetizer that you can make in under 20 minutes.  The bite-sized portions make it very easy to serve and eat at a tailgate.  And the hearty ingredients are real crowd pleasers.

Sausage & Cheese Pinwheels

Sausage & Cheese Pinwheels

Ingredients:

24 oz processed cheese

1 can diced tomatoes with chiles

1 pound ground sausage

flour tortillas

Directions:

Fry sausage until browned and cook through. Drain off fat. Set aside.

Take cheese and slice it into cubes. Place in a microwave safe bowl. Add tomatoes with chiles. Place in microwave and cook for 30 seconds. Remove and stir. Repeat until cheese is melted. Stir in sausage.

Spread sausage and cheese mixture in a thin layer on the tortillas. Roll tortillas on to themselves. Chill in the refrigerator till cheese mixture is set.

Remove tortilla roll-ups from the refrigerator. Cut tortillas in to slices, about 1/2 an inch wide. Cheese should be set up enough so that it doesn't ooze out when you cut the tortillas.

Place pinwheels on tray and serve immediately or place in the refrigerator until time to serve.

Notes

For a lighter option, try substituting other ingredients like turkey sausage and whole wheat tortillas.
