Who doesn’t like a good appetizer?  Sometimes, you just have to pull a recipe together with what you have.  These can be some of the best creations.  That is how we created “Trizza”.   The name is actually a combination of Triscuit and Pizza.  We didn’t have much to serve as an appetizer, but we did have some Triscuit crackers and a few other things.  So, we combined the ingredients in the spirit of a pizza, and the Trizza was created.  However, it did take us a few days to create the name, which I think is actually quite catchy!

A Trizza appetizer tray can be put together in minutes.  Also, this easy, Italian appetizer requires no cooking.  So, if you are looking for a quick appetizer that tastes great, Trizza is the answer to your prayers.  A fine, Italian Chianti or Sangiovese would pair very well with this appetizer.
