Here’s a quick appetizer that I bet your family will enjoy. I used a store-bought pizza dough to make it easier on me this time, but I would love to try a homemade dough sometime.
2 cans refrigerated classic pizza crust
8 oz mozzarella cheese, cut into 48 cubes
48 slices pepperoni (3 oz)
1/4 cup olive oil
1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
1 jar or homemade batch pizza sauce
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Spray two 9-inch pie plates or one 9×13 pan with cooking spray. Remove dough from both cans. Unroll dough; starting at center, press out each dough rectangle with hands to form 12×8-inch rectangle. Cut each rectangle into 24 squares.
Top each square with a cheese cube and pepperoni slice. Wrap dough around filling to completely cover; firmly press edges to seal. Place seam side down with sides touching in sprayed pie pans. Brush oil over dough and sprinkle with Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese.
Bake at 400 degrees for 16-22 minutes or until brown. Serve warm pizza bites with warm pizza sauce.
