Listen, we all get it; everyone wants a pizza for their New Year’s Eve party but either no one delivers that day or delivery will take something like 5 hours. So, you need a bite of pizza that can appear out of your kitchen in a flash… and just for fun, it should be party-sized! A few New Year Poppers should do the trick! Every tender and beefy mushroom is filled with classic pizza sauce, topped with melty cheese, and even a little savory, spicy pepperoni. They’re quick, they’re easy, and they’re pizza. New Year Poppers starts the new year off with a pop!
