Pizza bites are now my new favorite appetizer to make. Not only are delicious and easily adaptable to your tastes, they are super easy and quick to make. Just grab your favorite pizza dough, wrap it around your favorite pizza toppings, bake and then serve with pizza sauce. I went with the traditional mozzarella cheese and pepperoni for my pizza bites, but you could easily add in veggies and different meats. These are a perfect snack for watching a football game with the guys or served alongside a glass of red wine with the girls. 😉
Yields: About 20 bites
1/2 batch pizza dough
4 oz mozzarella cheese, cubed into about 20 pieces
Grated parmesan cheese
Pizza sauce for dipping
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. LIghtly grease a 9 inch cake or pie pan. Take your pizza dough, and divide it into 20 equal pieces. Take each piece of dough and slightly flatten it in the palm of your hand. Add 1 cube of cheese and a few pieces of pepperoni, then pull the dough around the filling and pinch to close, forming a ball. Place seam side down in the baking dish. Repeat with the remaining dough.
Lightly brush the tops of the dough balls with olive oil, then generously sprinkle with Italian season and grated parmesan. Bake for 20 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.
Serve warm, with pizza sauce if desired.
