Pizza Bites

I’ve been driving now for 22 years and for the first time ever, I pulled a complete “dumb blonde” moment and ran out of gas….right in front of the gas station!
I was so grateful when a tow truck stopped to help me. That is, until he found out I didn’t need a tow, just someone to help me push my car a few feet into the gas station. He then got in his truck, and pulled away!! Can you believe that?!?
Luckily, my kind, loving, understanding and forgiving husband showed up to rescue me from my own stupidity.

Not only is my hubby my Knight in Shining Armor, he is also a great hand model for my baked goods! These little gems were HUGE with my crew, especially with some of my jarred marinara from my garden to dip them in! I made a double batch and had to beat the kids off the last few so I could pack some in their lunches the next day.
Next time I make these, I want to include a chunk of mushroom as well. I also think these would be yummy dipped in some ranch dressing.
Pizza Bites
1 recipe pizza dough (here is mine!)
sliced pepperoni
4 oz mozzarella cheese, cubed into 24 pieces
olive oil
italian seasoning
parmesan cheese
garlic powder
1. Bring your favorite pizza dough recipe to it’s first rise. Deflate and divide into 24 even pieces. Flatten each piece, and wrap it around 2 pieces of pepperoni and one cube of cheese. Place seam side down into a greased 9″ pie plate. Repeat with remaining dough pieces.
2. Brush the tops of the pieces with olive oil then sprinkle on some parmesan, italian seasoning and garlic powder. Allow to rise for 20 minutes, then bake in a 375 degree oven for 25-30 minutes until golden brown. Serve hot with your favorite marinara, if desired.
