No game day would be complete without serving something decorated like a football. From elaborate dishes that keep you up all night, to simple patterns that your children can help with, here are 5 fun foods that score a touchdown on game day.

1. Cake Pops: Either shaped oval or round, dip in chocolate and then ice with a football stitch.

3. Pizza: You can either shape the pizza crust like a football and layer with peperoni and use mozzarella cheese for the stitch, or shape pepperonis across a round pizza to look like a football and use the mozzarella cheese to surround the football shape and for the football stitch.

4. Bean Layer Dips: In an oval bowl layer your favorite dip with the beans on top and then use sour cream to create the football stich.

5. Savory and sweet hand pies: Make a batch of your favorite savory or sweet pies in mini oval shapes that look like footballs, and then use a pastry knife to cut out the vents to look like a football stich before baking.
