These pizza bites are ooey gooey and will be a crowd pleaser for any party as well. You can absolutely freeze them or heat them up in the morning as well. I have been told that they store beautifully in a thermos after they are heated up but please let me know if you try.
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Servings 8

Ingredients
  

  • 1 roll of Pillsbury crescent rolls dough
  • teaspoon of pizza sauce into each one my favourite pizza sauce is by Rao’s, but you can use any
  • 8 pieces of mozzarella cheese you can use shredded as well
  • 8 pepperoni slices you can use turkey pepperoni as well
  • avocado oil spray is optional to prevent sticking

Instructions
 

  • Unroll the Pillsbury dough, pull apart each piece and take each triangle and roll it into a ball. Flatten that dough ball and spray your large muffin tin with some cooking spray.
  • If your muffin tin is brand new and non-stick you might not have to spray it at all. I flatten each piece into the muffin tin and make sure to press it down and along the sides so that it looks like a little cup.
  • Place ½-1 teaspoon of pizza sauce into each cup and top with mozzarella.
  • Add a slice of pepperoni on top and bake at 400F for 15 minutes or until they are puffed up and golden. Enjoy.

Notes

Please note that you can use any pizza sauce you like. You can also use pizza dough for this recipe and even a gluten-free pizza dough if you have a favourite one as well. If you or child is dairy-free you can absolutely use your favourite dairy-free cheese of choice.
Feel free to add any toppings you enjoy and make these your own. These are just as good for adults as they are for kids, so I recommend them for any gathering served as an appetizer as well. You can absolutely freeze these once they have cooled down or make them the night before and just heat them up in the morning.
To freeze, let them cool down completely and flash freeze them onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Once frozen transfer into a freezer bag. I believe wrapping them in foil will also work.
When taking out of the freezer you can re-heat them for 10-15 minutes in the oven at 325F or until warm. These will last up to 2 months frozen or up to one week in the fridge. Please leave all your comments below so that you can help out other parents as well.
