Pizza Bites

Ingredients:

2 cans refrigerated pizza dough (I used Pilsbury but I think next time it would be worthwhile to make my own crust)
1 bag of shredded mozzarella cheese
4 oz thin sliced pepperoni
2 tsp Italian seasoning (combine oregano, basil, parsley, and garlic)
1/4 cup olive oil
3 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
pizza or marinara sauce

Directions:

Prepare pizza dough and roughly chop pepperoni.

If you are going to bake some right away preheat oven to 400°F. Grease 3 pie pans.

If using refrigerated pizza dough: roll one dough out into a large rectangle and cut into 24 pieces. I didn't lay out my dough properly so mine turned out a little wonky and funny shaped, but in the end they were fine, just a little more difficult to close up some of them.

Repeat with 2nd pizza dough. If using homemade dough just pinch off walnut sized pieces as you go. In each dough piece place a couple pieces of chopped pepperoni and a tablespoon of cheese. Seal dough around meat and cheese and place seam side down in pie pan.

Repeat, placing approximately 16 dough balls in each pie plate.  Once assembled, combine oil and spices and brush over the dough. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Now you can cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate or freeze or you can bake right away.

When ready to bake: bake at 400°F for 16-20 min. Serve with warm pizza or marinara sauce.
