  • 16 Ounces whole grain pizza dough, room temperature
  • 4 stuffed clams, such as Matlaw's Bacon & Cheese Stuffed Clams
  • 1 Cup shredded 2 percent mozzarella cheese
  • 1 Cup baby spinach
  • 1.5 Cups marinara sauce


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Place Matlaw's Stuffed Clams on a baking sheet and place in oven for 30 minutes.

As the clams are baking, dust pizza dough, rolling pin, and counter top with whole grain flour to keep dough from sticking. Roll out dough into thin circular pizza pie. Place on baking stone or pizza sheet.

Spread 1-cup marinara sauce evenly on pizza. Top with spinach and mozzarella cheese.

After clams have been baked, remove from oven and carefully scoop out clam stuffing.

Bake pizza for 15 minutes or until crust begins to turn golden brown and cheese is melted.

Halfway through baking the pizza, remove from the oven and sprinkle the clam stuffing evenly over the top of the pizza. Place pizza back in the oven and continue cooking until the crust has turned a golden brown.

Slice pie into small, bite sized triangles.

Fill emptied clamshells with remaining marinara sauce for dipping.

Baked Gorgonzola Bites Are Your New Go-To Party Appetizer

Guys. We've found the greatest party appetizer ever: baked gorgonzola bites. All you need is five ingredients and 30 minutes to make this melty, cheesy, pull-apart recipe. It's basically a savory monkey bread, and you won't be able to stop snacking.

5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

6 ounces gorgonzola cheese

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Freshly ground black pepper

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease a 9-inch oven-safe round baking dish (such as a cake pan, skillet or casserole dish) with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Divide the dough into 20 even pieces, and roll each piece into a ball. Transfer the dough balls to a large bowl and add the melted butter. Toss to coat the dough fully in the butter.

3. Arrange the dough into concentric circles in the prepared baking dish. Pour any butter that&rsquos left in the bowl over the dough.

4. Sprinkle the gorgonzola over the dough balls, and bake until the dough is golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes.

The fall is crazy town in my house. We have great group of friends that we do so many parties and events with that just so happen to be in the fall. It kicks off with a great Halloween party and does right on through to New Years. It’s busy, crazy, and so much fun!

For a lot of those gatherings, we typically all bring some sort of party foods. In the past, I have brought my Jalapeno Jelly Glazed Slow Cooker Meatballs because they are so easy to make, transport, and everyone loves them. But they might have a run for their money with these bite sized cheese balls.

Bacon Ranch Cheese Ball Bites

Bacon Ranch Cheese Ball Bites are just like what the sound like… bite sized cheese balls that are made with bacon and flavored with ranch. They are so cheesy from the cream cheese and shredded cheddar. The balls are coated with a mixture of bacon, nuts, and chives.

I used pistachios just because that is what I had on hand. But they are also really good with walnuts and pecans. No matter what nut you use, you just want to make sure that you very finely chop them. Chop them, consider that you are done, then chop some more. You really want a fine nut and bacon mixture because the balls are small. It wouldn’t be too pretty to have big chunks of nut and bacon on the cheese balls.

If you have a food processor, you can Bacon Ranch Cheese Ball Bites make these in practically no time. Pulse the nuts until hey are fine. Then add in the bacon. Transfer that mixture to a bowl, then give the bowl of the food processors a quick wipe down. At that time, add the cream cheese and cheddar. Mix well, then add the chopped chives to that, then pulse again to finish that off. This keeps clean up to just the food processor and makes it all quick work.

Another tip that I have is that you use kitchen shears for chopping the chives. It makes really quick work of cutting them up into very fine pieces. (I think kitchen shears are an absolute must in the kitchen!)

The Bacon Ranch Cheese Ball Bites are so great because they taste so good, but besides that, they are easy to make and can be made in advance. You can make them up to 2 days in advance. Just put the pretzels in the cheese balls about 15 minutes prior to serving, so they don’t get soggy.

Be sure to make these Bacon Ranch Cheese Ball Bites for your next party. And, if you are invited, bringing these will make you the hit of the night!

Make Your Own Mini Pizzas + Homemade Pizza Dough

Mini pizzas on homemade thin crust dough + tons of topping ideas! These little bites are perfect for parties and fun for weeknights!

One of the best things about knowing how to cook is that you turn whatever’s in your fridge into a fabulous, delicious appetizer for friends and family!

With a batch of freshly made pizza dough, mozzarella, sauce, and a few of my favorite toppings, these little two-bite pizzas were easy to make and a total hit. Well… I didn’t have a chance to taste more than one of them, but if there weren’t guests to feed you could bet I’d have gone back for more!

I like to make my pizza dough at home – There’s something that knocks my socks off about watching a bunch of simple ingredients turn into a puffy, cloudlike ball of bready goodness! Plus, you can add in dried herbs or grated cheese and give it a little extra flavor than the store bought stuff.

Read up on how to get these perfect mini pizza circles in the recipe below.

Now onto the good stuff! Sometimes you just gotta use what you got. This time, it was roasted red peppers, spinach, ham, and a thoroughly loved block of Asiago cheese. Oh, Asiago I love you.

Onto the pizza they went, along with freshly grated ribbons of shredded mozzarella and a swirl of my favorite pasta sauce. You can use pizza sauce, too, or do it up homemade with your bad self!

After baking for about ten minutes, these bubbling hot beauties were ready for munching – and boy, did they go fast!

Get inspired with plenty of creative topping ideas below, including different meats, vegetables, cheeses and more than you may not have tried before. I love to get funky with different flavors, and pizza is a great canvas for experimenting!

Zucchini Pizza Bites

Yesterday morning, hubby and I hopped a plane from Texas to Washington D.C. for a little getaway. We’re staying downtown to soak up all the rich history (mom, aren’t you proud?), sights, sounds and good food the city has to offer. Tomorrow, we’re trucking up to my cousin’s farm wedding in Pennsylvania for a big, happy family reunion and lots of celebrating. I’m just about to jump outta my skin I’m so excited to be here and spend time with family and friends I haven’t seen in years!

So, let’s celebrate the little things with these sinfully good, but plenty healthy, zucchini pizza appetizers! Aren’t they just the cutest mini appetizers you ever did see?

Totally worth throwing a party just so you can serve ‘em up and wow your friends, in my opinion…

Just after I made these, Mark began watching me impatiently as I was perfecting these pizzas and snapping photos, wondering when I’d be done and he could get to devouring! I should have known he wouldn’t share. He ate the whole plateful for lunch, leaving the lowly cook without a scrap!

… Minus a couple I had snagged while he wasn’t looking. I had to make sure they were delicious enough to share with you, after all!

Well, let me tell you… I wanted MANY more bites than just a few! These zucchini pizzas are incredibly addictive, perfect for parties and taste so much like a real (little) pizza that you won’t even miss the crisp crust. The bubbly sauce rests under molten, gooey mozzarella, and topped with mini pepperoni and a pinch of Italian seasoning, each bite is a little bit of bliss!

Now go surprise your friends and turn up to your next get-together with a plateful of these adorable, scrumptious pizza bites. They’re gonna love ‘em, I guarantee it!

22 Keto Frozen Meals You Can Buy At Target, Trader Joe's, Walmart, And More

If you grew up in the 80s or 90s, the phrase &ldquofrozen dinner&rdquo probably conjures up images of bland food sectioned into plastic containers and served lukewarm in front of the TV.

Appetizing, right? Yeah, not so much. Even though frozen meals have come a long way since the TV dinner days, some are still packed with high amounts of added ingredients like sugar, sodium, and artificial flavors. But they're not ALL bad, and if you're following a diet that typically requires a lot of meal prep (cough, keto, cough), frozen meals can be a godsend on crazy weeks when you need food fast.

&ldquoResearch shows that keto diets can improve insulin resistance and promote weight loss [but] the biggest reason this diet fails is because long term adherence is challenging,&rdquo says Erin Palinski-Wade, RD, author of Belly Fat Diet For Dummies. &ldquoFrozen meals that fit your keto diet can help with compliance by making it easier to stay on track, especially on those busy days when you just don't have time to prep,&rdquo says Palinski-Wade.

How to choose a keto-friendly frozen meal

Surprise, surprise: not all frozen meals are created equal. Palinski-Wade says that for frozen meals to truly fit into your keto diet, you should aim for ones that are as low in carbs as possible (e.g., less than 10 grams of net carbs). Also look for little to no added sugars, dietary fat from unsaturated sources, and sodium that comes in under 30 percent of the daily value.

Lastly, remember the golden rule: Just because it&rsquos labeled &ldquoketo&rdquo doesn&rsquot make it healthy. &ldquoFocus on meals that contain &lsquoclean&rsquo keto ingredients, such as plant-based fats and lean proteins over &lsquodirty&rsquo keto ingredients, like bacon and pork rinds, which are rich in saturated fat and sodium,&rdquo says Palinski-Wade.

Here are 22 keto-friendly frozen meal options, recommended by dietitians and available at grocery stores like Target, Trader Joe's, Walmart, and Whole Foods. These meals won&rsquot derail your diet when meal prepping just isn&rsquot gonna happen&mdashand they're probably available at a spot near you.

30 Keto Meal Prep Recipes That Will Make Losing Weight *So* Much Easier

Meal prepping is a super-easy way to keep you on track with any diet, but especially the keto diet. As a refresher, the keto diet is all about staying within a set number of macros that keep you in ketosis (the state your body enters when it doesn't have enough carbs for your cells to use for energy.)

&ldquoKeto diets have morphed into a variety of macro levels with ranges of up to 20 percent carbohydrates, 10 to 30 percent protein, and 50 to 90 percent fat," J. Wesley McWhorter, a registered dietitian at UTHealth School of Public Health in Houston, told Women's Health. That usually means eating no more than 50 grams of carbs a day (some strict keto dieters even opt for just 20 grams a day).

Whether you're new to the keto diet or you've been on it for years, meal prepping can keep you on track.

&ldquoWhen you meal prep, [you can see] what keto meals and snacks you can create without having to eat impulsively and make choices that could be off-plan,&rdquo Erin Palinski-Wade, RD, author of 2 Day Diabetes Diet, told Women's Health. &ldquoPlanning in advance helps you keep the right keto foods on hand, so you can have satisfying options no matter where you go.&rdquo

But sometimes, your go-to meal prep recipes can get stale. To help you mix things up, we put together 30 of the best keto meal prep recipes for you to diversify your meals and keep you motivated.

Food Network Staffers' Favorite Vacation Eats

If you’re a food obsessive like us, good eats are at the epicenter of your summer travel plans. Here are the summer vacation tastes we staffers fantasize about for the rest of the year — and the recipes that help us re-create those lazy beach days (or Parisian adventures!) back home.

“Seafood times 10! Growing up we always vacationed in Maine for a week and I still hanker for beach food as a sign that it’s time to relax. The key moment is driving over the bridge on I95 from New Hampshire to Maine and getting right over the border in Kittery, where there’s not only outlet shopping but the best first bite: fried clams at Bob’s Clam Hut. That’s just the beginning. Then there’s lobster rolls, steamed lobster, boiled lobster, broiled lobster and so much more lobster — all with corn on the side for balance. During the rest of the year, we find a couple of times to make lobster rolls at home, just to get that feeling. But nothing beats seafood with a side order of salty air.”

“I went to Paris for the first time this summer and felt it my duty to taste as many croissants from as many bakeries as possible. I lost track and couldn't choose a favorite, since almost every pastry I tried was perfect: warm with a flaky and delicate exterior and seemingly infinite soft and pillowy layers inside. It was heaven. I got back more than a month ago, but I still catch myself daydreaming about the buttery croissants — enough so that I'm tempted to try making them myself for the full fresh-out-of-the-oven effect. I'll have to buy some good French butter, though, because I'm convinced that's part of the Parisian secret.”

“My lifelong summer happy place is on the Outer Banks of North Carolina (OBX). While new restaurants come and go every year on this beautiful barrier island, my family returns to our favorite place multiple times per vacation week: The Blue Point in Duck, which has been going strong for 25 years. Though the sound-side spot's fresh, super-seasonal menu is never the same week to week, the crab cakes are a constant, and they’re one of the best on the planet. That means a lot coming from this Maryland native. When I want to re-create The Blue Point’s crab cakes at home, I go for Tyler Florence’s recipe, which comes from the same school of thought: light on the mayo, heavy on the jumbo lump crab, and seared just until the exterior is crispy and golden.”

“I’m not really a breakfast person. Most mornings I’m lucky to grab coffee on my dash out the door. Maybe that’s why nothing says vacation to me quite like getting time to eat the most-important meal of the day. On childhood trips to Hawaii, I’d go to sleep fantasizing about the next morning’s banana-macadamia pancakes slathered in coconut syrup. Now that I'm an adult, it’s become my instant taste of relaxation. Hawaii isn’t in the cards for me this year, but when I hit the Hamptons next week, I’m making Ina Garten’s banana-coconut muffins (with macadamia nuts standing in for walnuts). I plan to bring them with me to the beach — with coffee, of course.”

“It's safe to say that the Remitz family is obsessed with sweet summer corn — it’s embarrassing how many ears we can put away in a single sitting. I remember how distraught my sister and I got that we couldn't have our corn on the cob during those formidable braces years, so every summer I do my best to eat as much as I can to make it up to my preteen self. Ever since I tried Mexican grilled corn, it's been hard to go back to those butter-only days. I make it at home using this recipe and order it whenever it's on a menu, but I've got to say, no place does it better than Café Habana. With the perfect balance of sweet, juicy corn, spicy mayo and tangy Cotija cheese, it’s a hearty enough side to make a meal (but if you go that route I suggest ordering at least two).”

“Every summer, my cousins and I drive up to Wrightsville Beach and rent a huge house on the water for the week — and I'm in charge of dessert! When you're on vacation with that many mouths to feed, it helps to go with a straightforward recipe that can be made in advance and away from the chaos of little children (like at night while everyone is asleep). That way, you're left alone to patter about the kitchen at your leisure: some light stirring, cookie-dough rolling, measuring spoon clinking. There's nothing like the gentle hum of a refrigerator — where this Red Velvet Icebox Cake will sit overnight (unless for some reason you own an early-century icebox). By morning, the buttery red velvet cookies will have softened in the cream cheese whip, leaving you with a cake that's cool, sweet and dangerously inhalable.”

“I don’t have a yard or access to a grill at my NYC apartment, so anytime I have the opportunity to grill — at a vacation house or a picnic with friends who have a grill — all I want to make is grilled pizza. I make homemade dough if I can, but store-bought dough is just as good, and top it with whatever seasonal ingredients I can get my hands on. I always make margherita, but other favorite toppings are charred kale with white beans, lemon and provolone peaches with Brie and fresh basil or grilled corn and caramelized red onion and mozzarella.”
