What pizza crusts should you buy?

Any size or brand of pizza dough can be used. Boboli is a very popular brand. I used the smaller ones. They should be fully baked. They come in sealed bags and can be found in the pasta aisle of most grocery stores near the pizza toppings or sauce. You can even make a cauliflower pizza crust!

Can I substitute the pizza crust with something else?

You sure can. Pita bread and naan bread are other options. You can even make smaller slices of Italian bread. This recipe can be modified to suit your personal tastes.

Are marinated mozzarella balls allowed?

No. It adds a great flavor. However, you can also grab some fresh mozzarella and cut it into smaller pieces. Or, you can buy some mozzarella cheese sticks and cut them into thirds.

What are some good dipping sauces to use with pizza kabobs

Our favorites include pesto, pesto, ranch dressings, marinara sauce, garlic butter, and pizza sauce.

Are there any substitutions for basil?

You can leave out basil if you don’t like it. It gives the kabobs a wonderful color and flavor. You could substitute baby spinach or another green leaf vegetable.

What are the best skewers?

These can be sent to school with younger children if you use blunt skewers. These are bamboo skewers at AmazonYou want to search for them (not affiliate links). You can also opt for a traditional cocktail skewer.

How do I store leftover pizza?

These can be kept in an airtight container in a refrigerator for up to 2 days. The basil will start to wilt. I don’t recommend freezing.
