Pepperoni Pizza Bites

During our quest to eat healthy we took a break and indulged in pepperoni pizza bites. And they were soooo worth it! This is such a fun idea. The exact same ingredients as a plain ole pizza but in reverse. Somehow, to me, it tastes kinda better!

We used pepperoni but you can use your favorite toppings.

This recipe is from Our Best Bites

1 tube rerigerator pizza dough

mozzarella cheese, shredded

pepperoni slices

1 Tablespoon ollive oil

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning or oregano

grated parmesan

marinara sauce

Preheat oven according to pizza dough package. Around 400 or 425 degrees.

Spread out the dough on a counter top and press out until as thin as possible without making a hole in the dough about 8"x12". Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut into 24 squares. (or you can make the squares larger, as I did)

Add cheese and pepperoni to each square center. Then carefully fold up the corners of each square and press together to form a ball. Place in a lightly sprayed pie plate seam side down. Brush the top of the balls with olive oil and sprinkle with Italian seasoning, garlic and parmesan cheese.

Bake for about 10 minutes but keep your eye on it because all doughs bake differently.

Serve warm with warm marinara sauce.

We have all the ingredients so I think we'll be making this again this week.
