How To Make Pizza Bites
It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3 to make this fun treat, and it will be ready in a flash!
- Roll out pizza dough and cut into 16 pieces.
- Fill with equal portions of cheese and pepperoni in the center.
- Form into a ball and top with oil & seasonings and bake!
Enjoy as-is, or serve with pizza sauce, marinara sauce or homemade ranch dressing for some delicious dipping!
Swap out the fillings to your favorites or build a Create-Your-Own pizza bar and let everyone have fun!
- Mozzarella is the go-to for pizza because of its creamy, mild flavor and its ability to hold everything together, but don’t be shy about trying different kinds of cheese. Muenster is a great choice!
- Of course, bacon crumbles make everything even better, but how about a dollop of jalapeno popper dip, too?
- Add your favorite cooked meats and veggies including bell peppers, onions and black olives!
Pizza bites are so versatile, they can also be dressed up for a more upscale presentation! Just add basil, red pepper flakes, or a sprinkle of crumbled feta cheese and watch everyone come back for more!

Me and my son made these tonight, wow! Big hit.. even my picky son couldn’t resist eating these. We dunked them in pizza sauce, they were amazing
I will like to know more of these pizzas and other snacks. Thanks.
Enjoy the recipes Stanley!
These are pretty darn good! I will say that at the top of the recipe it says 12 min bake time, but in the instructions it says 20. Might be good to have them match. We like to put veggies in there too.
Glad you enjoyed these! Thank you for letting me know about the time, I’ve updated it.
These look SO GOOD! I can’t wait to try it!
Can you put these together the day before then just bring to room temp and bake when ready?
That should work well Emily!
I’m so excited to try all of your recipes !!
I put a little pizza sauce on top. It came out great nice touch.

I’ve done similar with english muffins. Never thought of crackers, so I’ll have to try it
These look so delicious! I’ll definitely be making these! Thanks so much!
I will try this recipe tomorrow. I bought a $1 pizza from Save A Lot and it was bad! The $1.99 pizza was pretty good but I guess there is a point of no return LOL.
