Growing up, I loved those frozen pizza bites. You probably know the ones I’m talking about. They’re rectangular and frozen and you just pop them in the microwave. They are probably full of preservatives and horrible for you, but oh so good.
This recipe reminded me a lot of them when I saw it, so I decided to make some for Zack.
He said they were really good. They were a great bite-size treat!
You could really put any toppings in there. I just used pepperoni, because it’s Zack’s favorite.
– 1 pizza dough (homemade, canned, refrigerated… up to you)
– ~ 3/4 c mozzarella cheese
– 2-3 oz thin sliced pepperoni
– 1 tsp Italian seasoning
– 1/4 c olive oil
– 1 1/2 T grated Parmesan cheese
– pizza or marinara sauce
Prepare pizza dough and roughly chop pepperoni.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a pie pan.
If using refrigerated pizza dough, roll dough out into a large rectangle and cut into 24 pieces. If using homemade dough, just pinch off walnut sized pieces as you go.
In each dough piece, place a couple of pieces of chopped pepperoni and some cheese. Seal dough around meat and cheese and place seam side down in pie pan.
Repeat for each bite.
Once assembled, combine oil and spices and brush over the dough. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Now you can cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate or freeze or bake right away.
When ready to bake: bake at 400 degrees for 16-20 minutes. Serve with warm pizza or marinara sauce.
