I used the other 1/2 batch of Basic Pizza Dough that I had frozen. They do get surprisingly bigger when you bake them so next time, I'll make mine a bit smaller (I didn't split my dough out into the number of pieces in advance so ran short on dough and room).
I really don't have much else to say about this recipe except to go try it. I served it with some spaghetti sauce for dipping because I had made a batch that same morning but Marinara Magnifica, other tomato sauce, and/or ranch dressing would taste great too, I think. Chris probably ate half of them.. He requested them the next day again so I'd have to say these got 2 thumbs up from him. Yum!
- ½ batch pizza dough (enough for 1 pizza)
- 4 oz. mozzarella cheese, cubed (about 20-24 pieces)
- Sliced pepperoni
- Olive oil based butter, melted
- Garlic powder
- Italian seasoning
- Shredded Parmesan cheese
- 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 a cube of cheese 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. (Bites will touch each other and bake together but pull apart for you to enjoy as individual bites)
- Lightly brush the tops of the dough balls with melted olive oil-based butter. Sprinkle with garlic powder, Italian seasoning and shredded Parmesan cheese.
- Bake for 20 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown. Serve warm, pulling apart individual bites and enjoy with dipping sauce as desired.
