Recipe: Yummy Pizza Bites

 Before
 
After
 
This recipe is excellent and foolproof !    Great for an hors d'hoeuvres and easy to make especially  if you purchase the pizza dough.  I found this recipe on Annie's Eats and she recommends serving it with pizza sauce but we were pleased with the results just as it is.
I purchased fresh dough from the local supermarket bakery department and was able to get 16 "bites" out of their "one pizza" amount.  
 Leftovers heat nicely in the microwave the next day too!
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.

This looks delicious and I'll definitely give it a try. We have so many family functions...a new recipe is always welcome.
Hope you are staying warm. We have so much snow and now it's starting to freeze over. Tomorrow morning isn't going to be fun.
Take care,
