Pizza Shot or Pizza Flavoured Cheese Ball
My daughter and husband love pizza like you all.One day my daughter wanted to have pizza but I had a plan of making cheese ball.I bought all items from store. Then I set my brain to work...what should I do now...I can not hurt my daughter...so just to make her happy...I made this new dish..Pizza Flavoured Cheese Ball or Pizza Shot
It combines tangy tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, capsicum, onions, italian spices and a palmful of red pepper flakes. It’s like eating a slice of your favorite pizza every time.
It turned out beautiful..I fried up all the nuggets and presented to my daughter She took one and said “Mamma, if I close my eyes while having it...feeling like eating a slice of pizza"..I got my reward.
