Pizza Bites

We’re all feeling the effects of ongoing isolation around here. And we’re are experiencing weariness and stress in different ways. Bored is not a word I would use to describe my experience, but my children have no problem offering up that descriptor.

Imaginative, creative and always inventing, on the whole my two have done a great job of finding ways to channel their energy (mostly through the use of our recycling bin contents and rolls of tape). A few days ago, my daughter suggested this variation on pizza, and we agreed it would be a fun dish to for our (now traditional) Sunday snacky supper.

Pizza Bites Ingredients:

Bread dough (You could use homemade or frozen or refrigerated. I used my master loaf refrigerator dough)

1/2 package pepperoni slices

1/2 mozzarella pearls (though mozzarella cheese in any form will work; shredded will be a bit messier for assembly)

1 T butter

1 tsp garlic powder

2 T Italian seasoning

pizza sauce, for dipping (optional)

Pizza Bites Technique:

Divide dough into small pieces, about Tablespoon dollops.

Gently flatten each piece of dough into a circle slightly larger than the pepperoni.

Place a piece of pepperoni on the dough circle, and add two mozzarella pearls.

乏old in half and pinch the edges, sealing the contents in the dough.

丕rrange on a greased baking sheet and cover with a light towel. Allow to rise until doubled (about two hours if your dough is cold)

When ready to bake, melt the butter and stir in the garlic powder. Gently brush over the pizza bites. And evenly sprinkle the Italian seasoning on top.

Bake at 375 for about 20-20 minutes, until golden brown.

Serve warm with pizza sauce for dipping.
