Say hello to one of the most brilliant snack foods of all time – the pizza bite.  So many foods become even more fun when they are made mini, and I think this proves that pizza is no exception.  The first time I ever made these, they were a big hit and devoured in no time.  I’ve been looking for a reason to make them again ever since, and they seemed to fit perfectly with the girls’ night/guys’ night theme.  They are sure to be a hit at just about any gathering, but seem really ideal for the Super Bowl coming up!

They are incredibly easy to make.  Start out with a chunk of pizza dough, and just wrap it around your choice of topping – or in this case, filling.  (Of course you can use any pizza dough you like, but if you haven’t already, I urge you to try this one – it’s my favorite!)  I like to fill them with a cube of mozzarella cheese and a couple slices of pepperoni.  I normally don’t really eat pepperoni, but I really like it in these.  It reminds me a lot of these cheese and pepperoni-filled breadsticks one of the bars served in college – amazing!  As for dipping sauces, I go with this classic pizza sauce.  Ranch dressing would be good too, if that’s your thing.  Really though, these are so good on their own I don’t think a dipping sauce is necessary.  I have found that a half recipe of the pizza dough (enough for one pizza) is just the right amount for one pan of these bites (about 20-24 bites).  If you want them to be identical in size, you can use a kitchen scale to make sure you use the same amount of dough for each.  I just rip a small hunk of dough off and try to stay consistent with the size.
