Case in point, these Super Bowl party recipes that happen to be made into the shape of footballs!

So you have two options.  You can order a few pizzas for Super Bowl Sunday and be at the mercy of the busiest pizza day of the year. Or, you can get creative and make a deconstructed pepperoni pizza into a dip and toss some bread sticks in the oven. Trust me, the later option is the one to go with. Unless you like being at the mercy of Papa John?
