Pizza Bites

The day that these pizza bites were posted on Annie's Eats, I knew that we needed to make these. I sent Patrick the link and he wanted to make them that night for dinner. Well, we didn't make them that night, but it wasn't long after that we made them. They are really good, much better than any frozen pizza roll you would buy. Since then we have even made them with the premade pizza dough from the dairy section and they were still pretty awesome. In the future we are going to experiment with other ingredients to stuff the pizza bites with.

Pizza Bites

Ingredients:
½ batch pizza dough (enough for 1 pizza)
4 oz. mozzarella cheese, cubed (about 20-24 pieces)
Sliced pepperoni

For topping:
Olive oil
Italian seasoning
Grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 400˚ F. Lightly grease a 9-inch pie plate or cake pan. Divide the pizza dough into 20-24 roughly equal sized pieces. Take one of the dough pieces, top with a cube of cheese and a slice or two of pepperoni. Pull the edges of the dough around the fillings and pinch closed. Place seam-side down in the baking dish. Repeat with the remaining dough pieces.

Lightly brush the tops of the dough balls with olive oil. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning and grated Parmesan cheese. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown. Serve warm, with dipping sauce as desired.
