In the Spoon series Pop Culture Kitchen, we write about celeb recipes trending on the internet. This month, we are trying on Selena Gomez's late-night snack.

Selena Gomez — singer, actress, purveyor of the perfect berry blush, and snack master? In a recent video for Vanity Fair, the murder-solving multi hyphenate shared her go-to late-night snack.

Vanity Fair’s “Party Tricks” series is a variety show of sorts, featuring celebs sharing their hidden talents. In Gomez’s episode, the former Disney darling details how to make her stepdad’s pepperoni pizza bites.

Gomez first took to the small screen kitchen in 2020 with her HBO Max series “Selena + Chef” where she has accumulated recipes and expertise from professional chefs like Rachel Ray, Padma Lakshmi, Gordon Ramsay, and Sophia Roe.

What is Selena Gomez's late-night snack?

The Only Murders in the Building Star has been a tastemaker in her own right since her Disney days (who could forget her electric blue highlights at the Teen Vogue party ). Gomez’s personable no-frills approach has made her a cultural mainstay, and her easy family recipe for pizza bites is no different. I downloaded an 8mm vintage camera editing app circa 2014 because I saw Selena Gomez using one on Instagram, and this week I tried a spray cheese pizza because I saw Selena Gomez making one.

How do you make Selena Gomez's late-night snack?

The recipe is very simple.

Gomez loaded a buttery Ritz cracker with spray cheese, followed by a slice of pepperoni. She then topped that with another pass of the cheese and closed it all off with another cracker. “You could add peppers if you want or just embellish as you will,” she explains.

She zapped the finished product in a toaster oven for about five minutes. “[You] want the cheese to get all melty and gross,” she explains.

What does Selena Gomez's late-night snack taste like?

When I tried this myself, I built my cheese cracker creation and popped it in the microwave. I didn’t have a toaster oven so I did the guesswork and heated it for five to 10 seconds (Any longer and the cheese escaped from the cracker and created a sticky cheese pool that covered the entire plate).

Like Gomez said in the video, the bite-sized treat is “like a tiny pizza.” The snack reminds me of heating up my beloved Lunchables in the school microwave. It's warm and crusty with a gooey, peppery interior and basically takes seconds to put together.

“Don’t get me wrong, when I go to nice parties it's cool to see a little dill and a little shrimp every now and then,” Gomez said. “But when it comes down to it, at the end of the day this is what you’ll see me eating probably.”

I wasn’t expecting to love this snack, but the heart wants what it wants.
