Pizza Bites


Here’s another treat when you get together with your friends to watch the Super Bowl game.  Who doesn’t like pizza?  Your crowd will love this as they are so tasty and easy to eat.  Plus, the house smells heavenly while they are baking!


They are put together with pepperoni, mozzarella and herbs, surrounded by tender dough.  I imagine about any combination of ingredients would work, what ever you like best on your pizza.  Set them in the oven and in 20 minutes you will be eating them.  Your stomach will be growling for more!
