Pizza Bites

Don't forget to become a follower of my blog to win an awesome cookbook, read about it here. 
I found this great recipe at  It lookd really good, soooooo, I just had to make it!!  This would be great to serve at your Superbowl party.  I made homemade pizza dough, but I had the time since we were snowed in AGAIN.  Refrigerated pizza dough, or even thawed bread dough would work out great.  These were actually pretty easy to make.  You can make them with what ever filling you like.  I kept it simple with the usual pepperoni and cheese.  If I had less picky eaters, I would have filled them with onion, mushroom and green pepper, YUM !!

Just look at all that cheesy pepperoni goodness.


2 (7 ounce) cans pillsbury refrigerated prepared pizza dough (I used homemade)

4 ounces mozzarella cheese, cut into 24 cubes

24 slices pepperoni (I used 2 slices in each)

1/8 cup olive oil

1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning

1 1/2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

1 cup pizza sauce or 1 cup marinara sauce, heated


Prep Time: 15 mins

Total Time: 33 mins
