31 Days of Frugal Meals // Day 26 Pizza Bites

October 26, 2012

This is probably one of my favorite Sunday night recipes. It is way cheaper than regular pizza and I personally think it is a lot more fun to eat, Jeremy on the other hand is getting sick of it. I make these a lot of Sunday nights! A lot! I just love them, they're cheap, yummy, and super easy. Perfect meal in my book. Plus you can buy whole wheat canned pizza dough now so I don't have to make my own if I don't feel like doing it.

**I actually took my own photos of this recipe but they didn't come out right, bad lighting. I'll remake it another day and post it again then:) Pinterest has made this Frugal Meals series so much easier. I don't have to photograph every single recipe and it makes me sooo happy!

Pizza Bites

Here is the original recipe from Pennies on a Platter with what I use in pink:

1/2 batch Perfect Pizza Crust dough (canned whole wheat pizza dough)
mozzarella cheese, about 20 cubed pieces (sliced string cheese or shredded)
sliced pepperoni (mini turkey pepperoni)
For topping:
olive oil
Italian seasoning
grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 400˚F.  Lightly grease a 9-inch pie plate or cake pan.  Divide the pizza dough into roughly 20 equal sized pieces.  Take one of the dough pieces and press in a cube of cheese and two slices of pepperoni.  Pull the edges of the dough down around the filling and seal.  Place in the pan, seam side down.  Repeat with remaining dough.  Each piece of dough should be touching each other in the pan. (It may seem crowded, but will be fine.)
Lightly brush the tops of the dough with olive oil. Sprinkle on Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese.  Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.  Serve warm or at room temperature, with dipping sauce if desired.
