Another Christmas has come and gone! We were truly blessed this year with great weather and time with our loved ones.....and of course lots of great food and presents! Both sides of our families decided to serve up a bunch of different appetizers for our meal this year, everyone pitched in by bringing a few different items and I think we all loved having this huge smorgasbord. One of the dishes I shared were these tasty little pizza bites. It's something I've had bookmarked for over a year now and again, wondering why I hadn't taken the time to try them out sooner. I'm a fan of all things pizza and these were sure to not disappoint! I've even been dreaming up other fillings I can stuff into these bite sized pizzas.
I only wish I would've gotten a picture of the inside of these for you to see. They're really easy to whip up....I guess you'll just have to make some and see for yourself!
1/2 batch pizza dough
4 oz. mozzarella cheese, cubed
Grated Parmesan cheese
Pizza sauce for dipping
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a 9-inch pie pan. Divide pizza dough into 20-24 equal parts. Take one piece of dough, top with a cube of cheese and 2 slices of pepperoni. Pull the edges of dough around the filling and pinch closed. Place seam side down in baking dish, repeat with remaining pieces of dough.
Lightly brush tops of dough with olive oil. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning and grated Parmesan cheese. Bake for 20-25 minutes, serve warm with dipping sauce.
