Supreme Pizza Bites

These Pizza Bites were a HUGE hit!! Even the kids I made these for, who would probably not normally choose to eat mushrooms or spinach on their pizza on a regular day, told me that I could make these for them any time that I wanted to.supreme pizza bites top ingredients shot

They may not taste exactly like a slice of pizza, but they have everything about a fully loaded slice of pizza that you know and love, especially if you love to dip your slices of pizza into a cup of sauce. I personally love to dip my pizza in about a gallon of sauce! When cooking for a crowd (or just a night in), something that you get to dip in something else automatically becomes that much better – we love to dip our food, layers of flavor are the American Dream (maybe, who knows – I just made that up, but lets go with it for today).

These bites can be served at a Super Bowl party or backyard BBQ or even dressed up for any Red Carpet Event. Served with a big bowl of warm sauce and stuffed to the gills with your favorite toppings, perfection. These get baked up in no time, and could even be made ahead to serve a crowd. Enjoy today filled with all of your favorite toppings and you have a instant classic!

Serves: 2 dozen
Ingredients
  • ¾ all-purpose flour
  • ¾ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1 handful baby spinach, chopped
  • about a dozen slices pepperoni, diced
  • 1 -2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 cup pre-shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Marinara sauce for dipping
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Grease well a 24-cup mini muffin tin and set aside. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, oregano, and parsley. Set aside.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and a pinch of salt and saute until mushrooms begin to release liquid, about 3 minutes. Add spinach and garlic and saute for another few minutes minutes, until spinach is wilted and garlic is fragrant. Remove from heat and throw in your diced pepperoni.
  3. Add egg, milk and cheese to the flour mixture and stir gently just to combine. Stir in mushroom/spinach/pepperoni mixture. Let stand for 10 minutes.
  4. Gently stir the batter. Divide evenly between the cups of the muffin tin. Bake for 20-22 minutes, until set and browned on top. Serve warm with warm marinara.
Notes
If not using right away, allow to cool in the pan and then freeze or refrigerate the extra bites. To reheat, bake in 350 oven for 5 - 10 minutes.

Be sure to use pre-shredded cheese OR grate your cheese very finely to avoid big chunks which will make a mess of your bites.

Substitute in your favorite pizza ingredients in these bites to fully customize them!
