Pizza Bites

I'm not a huge fan of frozen pizza or even homemade pizza.  If I eat pizza, it needs to come straight from a delicious restaurant.  I saw these pizza bites on Annie's Eats though and thought they looked pretty delicious, so I had to try them out.  Well, I  ended up loving them and can't wait to make them again!

I'm sure you could also add different things to the filling to suite your preference.  I did half pepperoni and half cheese.

Pizza Bites
Serves 2

Pizza dough -- Enough for one pizza
Grated mozzarella cheese (or you can use cubed like the original recipe)
Olive oil
Italian seasoning
Garlic salt
Grated Parmesan

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Spray a circular cake pan or pie plate with PAM.  Separate the pizza dough into even sized balls (mine made 13, but I'm sure the amount would change by which pizza dough recipe you used).  

Roll one of the dough pieces out into a small 4-5 inch circle.  Put some grated mozzarella cheese into the center along with a couple slices of pepperoni.  Pull the edges of the circle up over the filling and pinch together.  Put the ball into the pan seam side down.  Repeat this process with the rest of the dough balls.

Lightly brush the tops of the dough balls with olive oil and then sprinkle with Italian seasoning, garlic salt, and grated Parmesan. 

Bake until golden brown.  Serve right out of the oven with pizza sauce.
