Pizza meets kebabs on the grill. Kids love to pull the chunks of sausage, bread and tomatoes off the skewers with their hands, dip them in tomato sauce and eat — just like a New York slice, no forks allowed.

Have breakfast for dinner! This hand-held version of a weekend favorite is served with grilled bacon and warm maple syrup for the ultimate sweet and salty treat.
