Pizza Skewers

Posted by terrepruitt on August 30, 2021

If you know my love-hate relationship with pizza dough you may wonder why I thought it would be a good idea to try to make these Pizza Skewers. Sigh. I saw them and thought they looked great . . . . of course, they did look great, but not the ones I made. But they were still yum.

___________________________________________

PIZZA SKEWERS

PLEASE SEE NOTES BELOW

10 to 12 wooden skewers
12 to 24 mushrooms
12 to 24 pieces of sausage – cooked
10 to 12 cherry tomatoes
pizza dough (prepared)
Italian Seasoning
olive oil (2-3 tablespoons +/-)
garlic powder
shredded mozzarella (1 cup +/-)
tomato sauce (1 to 1 1/2 cup)

If you are using wooden skewers soak them for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375° F

Wash the mushrooms, leave them whole, put them on a lined baking sheet, sprinkle them with garlic salt and put them in the oven at 375° F for ten minutes.

While the mushrooms are cooking you can cut up the sausage and roll out the dough. The dough should be rolled out to about 12 inches by 16 inches. After it is rolled out, sprinkle dough with Italian Seasoning and garlic powder. Then cut it into about 12 strips.

Put one of each item (tomato, sausage, mushroom) on the skewer spaced out – if you can fit an extra on go ahead – then secure the dough under the first item and spiral it up the skewer weaving around each item. Then place on a lined baking sheet. Brush each completed skewer with olive oil and sprinkle more Italian Seasoning (if you would like) on each. Then bake at 375° F for ten minutes.

Take them out of the oven and sprinkle with the shredded cheese and bake for 10 more minutes or until dough is cooked to your liking.

Serve with tomato sauce for dipping.

NOTES:

  • Again, I have a horrific track record with dough and didn’t get it rolled out well enough to have 12 skewers – we end up with 9.
  • I used prepared dough.
  • I partially cooked the mushrooms with a tad bit of salt so they would end up fully cooked on the skewer PLUS to get some of the moisture out.
  • I put two pieces of sausage on my husband’s skewers and one mushroom. I had two mushrooms and one piece of sausage.
  • The tomatoes we had were VERY large, more like PLUM sized tomatoes than cherry.

These were fun and yummy. What do you think?

    • GREAT! There are so many ways you can do it. And you can make several different kinds so that the different tastes of each person can be met. And different sauces . . .
      Sounds like so much fun. What ideas do YOU have?

        Ha ha, as for kids probably as plain as possible. Personally, probably something with Jalapenos!

        • Yes, for kids I was thinking, several different “plain” ones, but with different sauces. And . . . I don’t like Jalapenos, but I think that a white sauce with Jalapenos in it would be a yummy way to do it. But . . . again, I don’t know because I don’t like hot peppers!
