Par-Baked Pizza Crusts from Alive & Kickin’ are your secret to easy, on-trend appetizers that deliver favorite, familiar tastes in a whole new way.

How about a twist on “fries”? Just substitute garlic butter, buffalo chicken dip, and spinach artichoke dip for traditional pizza sauce on three separate par-baked crusts, sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and bake until golden brown. Cut the topped crusts into thin strips, serve with marinara, French onion dip, ranch or another sauce and — boom! Three unconventional appetizers that hit the spot without leading your kitchen staff into the weeds.
