There are two reasons that I would attend (or throw) a Super Bowl party (or any other football game party).
1. Friends – It’s always fun to get together with friends.
2. Food – Any excuse to share food with friends!
So when Pillsbury asked me to create a Snackadium using their Crescent Roll Dough and Pizza Dough, I was in! You know I love canned dough products.
What’s a snackadium, you ask? It’s a stadium made of snacks. Usually they are constructed from salty snacks, dips, sandwiches etc. There are lots of amazing examples on the web. Some of them would feed 50-60 people.
Since most folks don’t have parties quite that big, I wanted to create a snackadium that would be easy to make and serve about 15 – 20 people, depending on how many sweet snacks you serve with it.
Here’s the diagram of what I ended up with:
I’m not known for the presentation of food, so I kept the assembly of this simple. The base is a veggie pizza, made with Pillsbury Crescent Rolls.
I finely chopped broccoli for the top. The lines are piped sour cream.
And this game is black olives vs cherry tomatoes.
I made the goal posts of cheddar cheese sticks, held together by toothpicks. I broke the toothpicks in half and pushed them into the cheese to hold the pieces together. I also used a toothpick at the bottom to hold the goal post onto the pizza.
Around the sides and end zones, I used calzones made with Pillsbury Refrigerated Pizza Dough. That stuff is so easy to work with. It made assembling the calzones a cinch.
There are two types of calzones there – Buffalo Chicken Mozzarella Calzones (inspired by these on Once a Month Mom) and Pepperoni Pizza Calzones. (All the recipes are at the end of this post.)
Between the calzones and the veggie pizza, I piled the chips. I used Bugles, tortilla chips and potato chips. On three of the corners, I added dips. I used spinach dip, French onion, and salsa.
I had fun making this and we definitely had fun eating it. Because we were a little early for Super Bowl, we shared it with friends on New Years Eve.

I have partnered with Pillsbury through DailyBuzz to help promote their Crescent Roll and Pizza Crust products. I have been compensated for my time commitment to work with this product. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments. Thank you Pillsbury for this awesome opportunity to create a Snackadium!
