Happy Friday Everyone and we can almost taste the weekend….taste cause these are the few weeks where holiday season is in full swing and most of us are attending or hosting holiday parties – YaaaaY !!! 

So much fun to celebrate some cherished moments with family and friends along with delicious food.

As a food blogger, the responsibility gets slightly bigger and before every holiday party and I get butterflies n goosebumps 🙂

It’s the perpetual ‘What should I make’ series that results in lot of head scratching (literally 😉.

easy-pizza-skewers-1So, for our next party, I’ve created these delicious Easy Pizza Skewers which are super easy (trust me, all you need to do is bake the pizza).

While our quick stop at Walmart last week, we got ‘CALIFORNIA PIZZA KITCHEN® Crispy Thin Crust Oven Ready Pizza, Sicilian‘ which can be found in those huge frozen food refrigerators where it says Pizza.

We actually got 4-5 of them, some to nosh upon as is it makes a perfect movie night meal and some for my pizza skewers.

Along, with the pizza, you need couple of seasonal vegetables and fruits, just go for whatever you like to put in the skewers.

Since, it’s a holiday party appetizer hence I’m keeping it extremely colorful (think red and green).

You also need 6-7 tall wooden skewers (just be careful handling them around children) and divide each skewer in 3 or however tall you want the skewers to be.

I wanted to keep them light and not very filled as we do have other food items too.

So all I did was add 5-6 veggie-fruit and 1 piece of pizza square (pizza slice cut into bite-size squares).

Just take the skewer and assemble as per choice. Here’s what I did:

Once made, just place them beautifully on a large plate with either store-bought or homemade sauce/chutney and serve immediately.

QUICK TIP: Make them when the pizza is slightly warm as it easily slides through the skewer.
