Cheesy Pepperoni Pizza Sticks

Finding recipes that are easy, on budget and kid approved can be difficult at times.  Recently, I asked my kids what their favorite thing was to eat, they responded with, "PIZZA"!  I wasn't surprised but we cannot order pizza every week if we want to stay on budget - more on our big budget changes soon!  

So, long story short, I picked up a few pizza essentials and created a some finger food that mocks their favorite meal!!  Pizza me!!

These pizza sticks were a hit with the whole family.  I plan on making another batch but fill them with other toppings like veggies and sausage.  Such a great recipe that can switched up depending what we have on hand at home.

  1. I'm all for easy food, that's also budget friendly. No one has time to spend $50 on ONE meal (and that seems to be the norm these days) for a family of 6. Our kids are all about pizza and Chinese food, so I'm going to have to learn how to make more of the latter now that I have this recipe of yours!

  2. Omg, my kids would love these pizza sticks. It seems that is all they ever want. These are easy to make and I'm sure they are tasty!

  3. Yum! This recipe would be so great for my family. My kids won't eat a cheese stick until it's baked into bread like this. I know, so weird! This would be a great one for the kids to help cook too.

  4. I love this recipe! It looks so easy, and I'm all about budget friendly these days. My family spends way too much money on takeout. My son loves pizza and mozz sticks. This is the perfect marriage between the two!

  6. My goodness, do these every look wonderful! I hear you on carry out and the budget. The reality is, once you have a few go-tos, it's a lot easier. We don't have kids at home anymore, but my go-to for easy meals are lentils with a simple homemade tomato sauce and whatever protein I have pre-made in the fridge. Also, in the summertime, planning meals based on whatever is growing in the garden x
