The alarm clock went off on Thursday morning and The Hubs rolled over and said, “Football starts today!”
Good morning to you too honey.
If only he was this enthusiastic about cooking, stationary shopping or walking the dogs…. you know, all the things that I love. I guess the variety of our interests makes for a well rounded relationship.
Beyond football, The Hubs gets excited about super high speed internet, complex spreadsheets, wood shop tools, motorized skateboards, pizza and buffalo wings. Since I know zero about those first few things, I decided as a special treat to kick off football season, I’ll combine his two favorite foods into one delicious dish.
These wings are marinated in zesty marinara sauce, grilled, then topped with melty cheese and mini pepperonis. Pretty much every man’s football food dream come true.
If you’re not into food mash-ups, I’ve got 11 other excellent wings recipes for you to try this football season. There’s bound to be one that you’ll fall in love with.
Pizza Wings! Two great game day recipes combined into one delicious meal
- 1 lb chicken wings
- 3/4 cup pizza sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon oregano
- 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup mini pepperonis
- Place wings, pizza sauce and oregano in a ziploc bag. Toss until wings are fully coated. Marinade in the fridge for 3-5 hours.
- Preheat grill. Remove wings from bag and place on the grill over indirect heat. Grill for 25-35 minutes, turning occasionally, until wings begin to brown and meat is cooked through. Move wings over direct flame to crisp the skin. Cook about 2 minutes on each side.
- Remove wings from grill and immediate sprinkle with cheese and pepperonis.
