Pizza Nuggets

For those of you that know me from high school or college, you probably share a love for a little pizza place that sadly shut their doors several years ago.  Marchelloni's was a favorite haunt.  On many a girls' night out, we would order some Marchelloni's Nuggets, bake a pan of brownies and pop in a good chick flick or two.  Good times.  My little sis recently met two previous workers/owners of said closed pizza shop and she mentioned our love of the pizza nuggets, and how much we miss them. They let he in on the secret to the recipe.  What luck!  Thank you Sarah.  Are you ready?

Marchelloni Nuggets

1 package of your favorite pizza dough (Fresh and Easy makes a great one if you don't want to make some from scratch)

Roll out your dough, brush with olive oil and sprinkle with the following spices:

Lawry's garlic salt (the secret ingredient)
Parmesan cheese

Top with a generous amount of mozzarella cheese and bake according to your recipe/package instructions.

Slice diagonally to form small diamonds.

Dip in your favorite marinara sauce or Ranch dressing (or both :))

Ah, a little taste of the past.  Another bonus?  The recipe is simple and my children love to help me make them (and eat them).


  1. I DO remember you introducing me to pizza nuggets! Thanks for the recipe.

    P.S. Is that a radioactive symbol on your microwave?

  2. I love this stuff!! So glad to finally have the recipe. Love to see the boys helping and wearing their aprons.

  3. I my goodness! I'm so excited to make them. Brings back many memories. :-) Lauree

  4. Yes, that is a radioactive symbol on our microwave... It broke some time ago, and Mike and I keep trying to use it. Mike put that stick-it note up to help us remember not to use it. Don't worry, we have another microwave that works.
