The Shady Porch: Pizza Pops aka Pizza Bites


Pizza Pops aka Pizza Bites

Friday night is usually homemade pizza night at our house, but, this week, we decided to give it a twist. We made Pizza Bites from Annie's Eats. It was a simple recipe to do and we loved the results! We ended up calling them pizza pops at our house since you can just pop one in your mouth. They would also make great appetizers.

Here's a handy ingredient list
1 can Pillsbury pizza dough, 
1 bag Mozzarella cheese cubes, 
sliced pepperoni, 
Parmesan cheese, 
olive oil, 
Italian seasoning and garlic powder 
marinara sauce, if desired

We bought the Pillsbury pizza dough from the dairy section...for this instance, we went with the thin crust variety. Then we rolled out the dough and cut it into squares using a pizza cutter (a knife would have worked just as well.)

Next we took a mozzarella cheese cube and couple of pepperoni slices, wrapped it in a dough square, and placed it seam side down on the cookie sheet. We continued this until we had used up all of the dough.

One can of the pizza dough makes about 24 pizza bites.

Bake them at 350˚ for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with marinara sauce, if desired.

Makes a great dinner paired with a homemade Cobb Salad!
