No party appetizer gets tackled quite like pigs in a blanket. Our two-ingredient Super Bowl starter calls for store-bought pizza dough, hot dogs, and a springform pan for pull-apart presentation. For a touchdown dipper with an extra kick, fill the ramekin with this spicy sriracha mayonnaise.


  • Unbleached all-purpose flour, for dusting

  • 1 pound pizza dough, room temperature

  • 10 all-beef hot dogs

  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing

  • Grainy mustard and/or ketchup, for serving


  1. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 10-by-15-inch rectangle. Cut in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ten 5-by-3-inch pieces. Wrap each piece around a hot dog; pinch edges of dough to seal. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze until firm, about 20 minutes.

  2. Preheat oven to 375°F; brush a 9-inch springform pan with oil. Place a 4-ounce ramekin in center of pan. Trim edges of wrapped hot dogs flat (discarding excess); cut each crosswise into thirds. Brush dough with oil and arrange in pan cut-sides up, spaced 1/2 inch apart.

  3. Cover with parchment-lined foil and bake until puffed and set, about 35 minutes. Uncover; continue baking until golden, 15 to 25 minutes more. Serve warm, with mustard or ketchup in ramekin.
