Pizza Bites

I made these pizza bites for the Superbowl. I hadn't planned on making them, but I had defrosted dough that I needed to use. These were tasty and simple. I think I will make them again soon because it seemed like everyone enjoyed them! Another great thing about this recipe is that we usually have these ingredients on hand. This recipe is from Annie's Eats.

You will need:
*pizza dough (amount used on one pizza_
*4 oz. mozzarella cheese, cubed into about 20-24 pieces
(I sliced some part-skim mozzarella string cheese we had on hand)
*sliced pepperoni
*olive oil
*Italian seasoning
*grated Parmesan cheese

1.Preheat the oven to 400. Lightly grease a 9-inch pie plate or cake pan.

2. Divide the pizza dough into 20-24 sized pieces (try to keep them equal). Take one of the dough pieces, and top with a cube of the cheese and a slice 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.

3. Lightly brush the tops of the dough balls with olive oil. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning and grated parmesan cheese. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown. Serve warm, with dipping sauce as desired. (I reheated these before serving, and I used marinara as a dipping sauce)
