Pizza Bites

Pizza Bites

This past year, for my high school friends' annual Christmas party, I was in charge of bringing an appetizer. I wanted to try something different, but also wanted to keep it "safe" with something that I knew everybody would enjoy. Who doesn't love pizza, right? I've seen a few similar recipes floating around, but I chose to adapt this one from Annie's Eats. It was quite a hit, too!

3 tubes Biscuits (the ones with about 10 biscuits per tube--this was my adaptation)
4 ounces Mozzarella Cheese, cut into 20-24 cubes
Sliced Pepperoni
Olive Oil
Italian Seasoning
Grated Parmesan Cheese.

Lightly grease a 9-inch pie plate or cake pan. Take each biscuit and slightly flatten it. Top each biscuit with a cube of 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. 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 pizza sauce for dipping. (*I did end up with a few extra pizza bites that didn't fit in the pie plate, so I baked those off extra in a separate dish)
