Pizza On A Stick {Kids In The Kitchen Series}

September 8, 2014

Good Monday Morning!

I’m back today with the third edition of our ‘Kids In The Kitchen’ series.  This week the theme is dinner and I thought we’d try Pizza Kabobs … or, as I’m calling it (and the boys, too), Pizza On A Stick!

Now … the whole point of this ‘Kids in the Kitchen’ series is to get our kids involved in helping to make these meals and snacks, and this one was a fun one to help with!


Here’s what you’ll need …

  1. Chicken Meatballs
  2. Grape/Cherry tomatoes
  3. Mushrooms
  4. Pizza Dough
  5. Basil leaves
  6. Italian Seasoning
  7. Red Peper Flakes (optional)
  8. Mozzarella
  9. Parmesean Cheese
  10. Maranara / Pasta sauce for dipping
  11. Olive Oil
  12. Wood skewers


  1. We bought a Gluten Free Pizza Crust mix, added some oil and water according to the instructions, then spread the dough into a baking pan and baked in the oven for about 20 minutes (half the time required according to the instructions).

  2. Once the crust is halfway done, take out of the oven at cut into 1″ squares with a pizza cutter.
  3. In a bowl, mix ~1/3 cup olive oil and about 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning together.

  4. Throw the chicken, the tomatoes and the mushrooms into the bowl and coat with oil and seasoning.
  5. Remove the pieces from oil bowl, and thread onto skewers.  Bonus:  talk about patterns … challenge your kiddo to create a pattern all the way down the skewer (i.e 2 pieces of dough, one meatball, one mushroom, repeat …)Pizza Kabobs ...

  6. Throw the skewers on the grill for about 3 minutes (obviously … grown ups, this is your part!!)
  7. After three minutes, place foil down on grill, then flip your skewers to the other side and lay on the foil.

  8. Top with slices of mozzarella cheese and leave on grill until cheese is melted (about 2-3 more minutes)PIzzaOnAStick_offgrill
  9. Remove skewers and sprinkle skewers with torn up basil leaves, parmesan cheese, and red pepper flakes (if desired).

  10. Place maranara sauce in small bowl, and use it to dunk your pizza pieces as you pull ’em off the skewer!

This really was a fun meal to prepare, and delicious to eat!!

A couple tips learned along the way ..

  1. Use precooked chicken meatballs or even chicken sausage cut up.  This way you only have to worry about them getting ‘warm’ not cooked!
  2. Help you kids when threading the ingredients on the skewers, as they are sharp!
  3. You only need 3 minutes on each side on the grill!!

I hope you’ll give this recipe a try.  It was a fun alternative to our ‘usual’ meals on the grill!
