Pizza Bites


Adapted from Annie's Eats. 

This dough recipe is for a Bread Machine. If you don't have one you can either make it in a stand mixer, or use your favorite refrigerated pizza dough. I highly recommend you try this recipe out and soon! It's a huge kid pleaser and fun for something a little different.

Dough: (This recipe makes one 16 inch Pizza)
1 cup water
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
2 teaspoons garlic powder

Filling:
Shredded Mozzarella, about 1/2-1 teaspoon per bite
Sliced pepperoni

For topping:
Olive oil
Italian seasoning
Grated Parmesan cheese
Granulated Garlic

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 mozzarella 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 and/or garlic.  Bake for 20 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.  Serve warm, with dipping sauce as desired.

Review:
These were Great!!! I very very highly recommend you make these immediately! They were a big hit with my 2 year old who asked for them for breakfast and lunch today, (don't worry he only ate them for lunch!). They were very easy to make, and such a fun break from the tradition of normal pizza. We dipped them in some warm pizza sauce and it was great! I plan to make a big batch of these and keep them in the freezer for whenever the mood strikes! 5 stars.
