pizza bites

>> Monday, January 3, 2011

i made these little guys as an appetizer for new years eve after i found the recipe over at annie's eats.  they remind me a lot of this pizza-type roll-up/log my mom used to make for all the special occasions. you can add anything you like to the top, but i went with my favorites: parmesan cheese, garlic powder and red pepper flakes.

40 mini pepperonis
4 oz mozzarella, cubed
pizza dough (i used the trader joes brand)
pizza toppings - italian seasoning, parmesan cheese, red pepper flakes, garlic powder or onion powder

preheat oven to 400 degrees.  lightly grease a 9-inch pie plate.  divide pizza dough in equally pieces - about 20.  take one of the dough pieces, top with a cube of cheese and two slices of pepperoni.  pull the edges of the dough around the filling and pinch closed.  place seam-side down in the baking dish.  repeat again and again.

lightly brush the tops of the dough balls with evoo. sprinkle with s&p/your favorite seasonings and bake for 20 minutes, until tops are golden brown. serve warm with marinara sauce or ranch dressing.
