These 5 Cheesy, Melty Pizza Appetizers Reign Supreme (Recipes)

It's no secret that pizza is one of the greatest foods on the planet. 

The savory, cheesy, filling dinner is as easy to find or make on the cheap as it is with a super gourmet touch, and it's one of the few meals beloved equally by kids and adults alike.

That makes it pretty much perfect for any occasion -- especially when you want something to snack on. Adding a pizza flair to your favorite apps puts a completely new spin on them. You'll love these!

1. Pizza Tots

Pizza fillings INSIDE TATER TOTS. That's right, you get to stuff crispy, Italian-spiced tender tots full of melty mozzarella cheese and savory, spicy pepperoni. Oh, and you get to dip them in marinara sauce, of course. So good!

2. Pizza Mac and Cheese Muffins

Nothing to see here, just all my favorite food baked into one easy, crunchy snack form! These are perfect for kids and for on-the-go activities, or you can just chow down right out of the muffin tin …

3. Pizza Potato Skins

Potato skins are fun -- crunchy, cheesy, starchy and delicious -- so it's a completely and irresistibly natural extension to add some marinara sauce, Italian seasoning, pepperoni and mozzarella cheese to the mix. 

4. Best Ever Pizza Dip

Have you ever wanted to just chow down on the gooey, cheesy saucy part of the pizza without the dough? I know I have, and I know I'm definitely going to be whipping up this easily gluten-free recipe in the near future.

5. Pizza Bombs

Sorry, garlic knots, you've got some competition! Biscuit dough with pizza fixings stuffed inside, coated in rich garlic butter -- does it get any better? I think not!
