Just letting you know that these snacks, that will make your pizza-loving self SO happy, are sponsored by The Laughing Cow®!
These easy, lighter pizza bites are SO simple to make and only use 5 ingredients! They’re the perfect snack for after school that has all the pizza taste without all the work!
You’re going to really like me today.
You know why? Because I am about to solve ALL of your life problems in one, 5-ingredient little bite of PIZZA BLISS.
I might be exaggerating about ALL THE PROBLEMS, but most of them.
I mean, when can biting into cheesy, tomato goodness and having sauce EXPLODE inside your mouth in pure yumminess, not be the answer to all the things that could possibly go wrong in the universe?
You see my point.
So, the life-problem that we are going to solve: “I am hungry. I want pizza. But that would require rolling dough and baking it for eleventy billion years. OR ordering it. Which still takes eleventy billion years for it to get to the door.”
I know that this monologue has happened deep within the depths of your pizza-loving SOULS.
But then 5 ingredient PIZZA BITES rained down from heaven, came into your life and all of your #firstworldproblems? Kiss them GOODBYE.[Tweet “Kids having an after school snack attack? Try these 5 Ingredient Pizza Bites! @TheLaughingCow”]
And a pizza-saucy cheesy-yummy kiss goodbye AT THAT.
See also: they may not have rained down so much as emerged from your oven in their better-for-ya, perfectly-portioned little bite-sized selves, but you get the pizza picture that we are painting here.
Now let’s talk cheese. A good slice (or bite!) of ‘za is ALL about the ooey-gooey cheesy moment that happens on the tip of your tongue as you munch straight through its deliciousness yeah? BUT, have you ever decided to nix all the annoying grating (does anyone hate grating cheese as much as I do?) and spreading a THICK layer of creamy-dreamy The Laughing Cow® Cheese Wedge on instead? <– remember the Roasted Sweet Potato Pie Bites? Only good ideas happening here.
Srsly though. Unwrap –> spread –> BOOM. Cheesy goodness without the work, but ALL of ooey gooey vibes that your mouth is craving right this second. With the cracker CRUNCH.
And that Italian spiced-toasted tomato that is tender, a little bit chewy and TOTALLY JUICY in the sense that it will fill your mouth with pizza-sauce-esque flavor.
But you made it. You did not scoop it from a jar. HELLO fancy-pizza-making-person you!
Besides, liiiiike, EVERYTHING, you know what I really love about these bites with their creamy The Laughing Cow burst of cheesiness and fresh-juicy-tomatoes that are basically defining my snacking-life right now?
I just said it. They’re the most perfect way to re-invent your snacking. No longer do you need to reach for those boring homemade protein bars or protein muffins anymore because easy pizza-on-a-cracker is IN THE HOUSE. And in your mouth. And should basically be anywhere that your snacking-self could be.
Side note: they should also be anywhere your kiddos could be. Liiiiike, in the kitchen. After school. Because what kid ever turns down an after-school-snack experience that includes tomato+cheese? OR (!!!) maybe your kiddos don’t come right home, because they have ALL the after-school-commitments, and you need something a little more portable? WELL, then you need the new Cheese Dippers by The Laughing Cow!
What kid does not want to dip-dip-dip a crunchy bite into creamy cheese. And what Mom does not want something that is SO easy to throw into your purse for that moment when the perfect-portable-snack need HITS. I don’t even have kids and I am ALL about THAT magical combo.
Back to pizza.
In other news: you know that time when you ordered pizza, shoveled it into your hangry mouth without basically breathing? You will not want to do that with these easy as 1-2-3 bites. Any food-loving-person will tell you that the eatin’ experience is SOMUCH better when you sit down, savvvvoooor the food and actually, you know, CHEW IT.
Mindful eating peeps. If you have not tried it already, you’re gonna get a heavy dose of snack satisfaction with these seemingly-simple-but-flavor-PACKED crunchy-creamy bursts of extremely edible JOY.
Pizza. In 15 minutes. With ONLY 5 ingredients.
Which include creamy-cheesy, crunchy-crackers jamming all the way into your tummy.
