Happy Hanukkah and a Fun Recipe (Pizza Bubble Ring)

Just want to take a moment to wish everyone celebrating a Happy Hanukkah! Tonight is the beginning of the holiday and we lit our first candle this evening. My Boys are very into celebrating this year and we picked up several books from the children's section at our library. I find that it's fun to read books about each holiday as we celebrate them. They were thrilled with their first gifts and are looking forward to the following nights. We'll be hosting family here next Saturday night, so I'll have some wonderful recipes to share next week.
Yesterday, I was paging through another cookbook I picked up from the library some time ago - they are going to be chasing me down for it as I think I've renewed it the maximum times already! So far, we've really enjoyed the recipes we've made from Kosher by Design Kids in the Kitchen. This time, the Pizza Bubble Ring caught my attention. What could be more fun to eat than a pizza style bread that you can pull apart and dip? My Boys were all in on this one.
I have to say that I did not have a tube pan to use for this recipe, so my bubble ring looked more like a short bunt cake! It was still really tasty and went over well with the kids. They have already asked if I would make it again tomorrow night for dinner.

Kristen at Dine and Dish made a No Stress Quiche - and be sure to enter her Pillsbury give away by leaving a comment! You could win a fun gift basket filled with some pie baking essentials!
Love and Olive Oil shared a Spaghetti alla Puttanesca that looks so wonderful, you'll want some bread to dip in the sauce so none of it is wasted!
Grumpys' Honeybunch made a Creamy Butternut Squash Soup that really looks perfect for the cold snowy days we've had lately.



Pizza Bubble Ring
Adapted from: Kosher By Design - Kids in the Kitchen

Ingredients
Non-stick Cooking Spray
8 tablespoons butter (1 stick) - melted
2 cloves garlic - chopped
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
2 pounds fresh or frozen pizza dough
8 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons Parmesan Cheese
1 1/2 cups pizza sauce

Directions
Prehat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a tube pan with cooking spray.
Combine butter through onion powder and mix well with a spoon.
With a sharp knife, carefully divide dough into 40 small balls. Flatten a ball and place some of the mozzarella cheese in the middle. Then close up the dough around the cheese to seal and form into a ball. Dip ball in butter mixture, then place in tube pan. Repeat for all remaining dough.
Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and drizzle any remaining butter mixture over the top. Bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown.

Happy Hanukkah! I grew up in New York (Long Island) and remember being able to share the holiday with my friends & their families that did celebrate it. I have amazing memories of food and traditions. Living out here in AZ I have not had opportunity to do so, and miss it! I look forward to hearing more from you each day!

I can just imagine the fun had by all making and eating the bubble ring. I've bookmarked it for the next grandkids visit.

Happy Hanukkah to you and yours. It certainly is a fun time to spend with kids. I'll have to try to find that Kosher By Design book for my daughter and her kids.

This was the hit of my Christmas Eve Party!! Thanks, I will definitely make this again! But thinking of putting chunks of mozzerella in the balls rather than shredded cheese... just to see what that does!

bracha said...

sorry. what do you do with the pizza sauce? i dont see any directions for it in the recipe

Patsy K said...

Hi bracha - the pizza sauce is for dipping the pieces you pull from the pizza ring. I hope you enjoy the recipe! Thanks, for stopping by and reading my blog!
